We have made it to the end of another year. It came with its challenges, but we managed to finish really well with lots to be thankful for. Thank you to all our amazing parents and community members who have provided such great support over this past year. You make my job easier and allow so many great things to happen for our students on an everyday basis. I think the kids have done an amazing job this year and I have seen lots of great learning taking place over the course of the year. Well done to everyone!
WOW! I was blown away from the talent shown at our Year 4-6 Music Concert on Monday evening. The students were amazing, showcasing their musical skills, performing on many different instruments and singing and entertaining the audience. It was a great display of just how special our Tommy More students really are. Well done to Mr Goodwin for his work with the students in preparing them for this concert and all the work he put in setting up and getting everything organised. A special thanks also to the Margaret River HEART for providing a grant to make this possible and to our amazing P&F for also contributing to the costs.
Yesterday morning, along with the Year 3, 4 and 6 classes, I listened to the Year 5 students present their Leadership speeches. I was extremely impressed with the time and effort these students put into sharing why they think they would make a great leader in our school next year and congratulate them on putting themselves forward for these roles. I know many of them felt nervous, but I was tremendously proud of the way they showed persistence and determination to still present this. I look forward to meeting with the Year 5 students individually and discussing why they feel they would be a good leader in our school next year. 2023 Leaders will be announced at our Year 6 Graduation and School Awards night on 8th December in the Church.
A huge thank you to everyone who came along to our ACM last night. Your attendance and support is greatly appreciated! It was a pleasure to share with you all the great things that have happened over the year and how we plan to continue to make our school the best for our students.
On Wednesday, our Year 3 and 4 classes competed in a Tennis Tournament at the Margaret River Tennis Club. Our students represented our school incredibly well and by all accounts showed excellent sportsmanship, were encouraging others and were gracious when they both won or were defeated. A huge congratulations to our winning team and runners-up! A great achievement.
Our Principal Mr Wylie, Year 6 teacher Mr McDonald and parent volunteers Sharyn Bennier, Kris Innes, Kim Maguire, Andrea Campbell, Martin Chilton and counselling student Keshi O’Halloran have accompanied our Year 6 students to Rottnest Island for their week-long camp.
