As we conclude our school year, I feel blessed that we have managed to achieve so much and developed as a school community. So much learning, growth and development has taken place, creating students who I believe, will be valuable assets to our world. Even in this past week, our students have had many opportunities and experiences that assist in their development:
Many Christian churches in Australia, particularly Catholic churches, celebrated the start of the Advent season last Sunday. Advent is the period of four Sundays and weeks leading up to Christmas – the birth of Jesus, so its length varies from 22 to 28 days.
Thank you to all the parents and staff who came along to our ACM last night. It was great to see so many parents come and support our school and hear about all the wonderful things that have happened over the past year and what is planned for the future.
The Year Six students had a wonderful time learning about the history of Western Australia and dome of the features found on Rottnest Island on their recent camp.
Our Year Four students led us in a reverent service for Remembrance Day on Monday 11 November with their class teacher Mrs Chapman. Every year on Remembrance Day we remember all the men and women who have served our country, Australia, in the army, the navy and the air force.
On Monday, our Year Six students will be setting off for their week-long camp at Rottnest. During this camp, the students will be provided with many opportunities to develop their leadership skills, take part in new experiences and develop further their knowledge of Western Australia’s history. I will be accompanying Mr McDonald, along with our amazing parent volunteers, Mrs Helen Lee (who has kindly donated a bus to drive us up to Fremantle), Mrs Sharyn Bucat, Mrs Nathalie Maron and Mr Cliff Royle. I am sure we will all have a safe and wonderful time!
