As another year comes to a close, I reflect back on all that has challenged us, strengthened us and helped us to grow. In what has been an unusual year, I believe our students, parents and staff have coped very well and although there have been some disappointing times along the way, I still believe we were able to experience many successes.
I was fortunate enough to attend Rottnest with an amazing bunch of Year 6 students last week. They not only represented our school incredibly well, but I witnessed examples of determination, compassion, inclusion and great manners.
Our Principal, Mr Russell Wylie is away on camp with the Year Six students, along with Mrs Alice Tippett, Mr Joel Lawrance and Mrs Marion McRae on Rottnest Island this week. From all accounts, they are having a great time with excellent weather.
Thank you to all the parents and staff who came along to our ACM last night. It was great to see so many 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.
Congratulations to all those students who participated in our Faction Swimming Carnival and Fun Day last Friday. It was a wonderful day, expertly organised by Mr McRae. A big shout out to him for all the hard work in ensuring the carnival ran smoothly and I would also like to acknowledge and thank all the parents who provided assistance on the day, either through helping out with the running of the carnival or by
coming along and supporting the students.
It has been a busy two weeks with the children participating in Swimming Lessons at the Recreation Centre.
