In the last three weeks of the school year, our focus is celebrating achievement and involvement.
This began last Tuesday, with the Thank You concert and morning tea. This Canning Vale Primary School tradition gives staff the opportunity to thank the many people who help at the school. The celebration had 3 sections.
The concert: Ms Della-Vedova invited children to perform for invited guests. This is not an easy task because we have so much talent throughout the school. Thank you to those students and classes who performed on the day.
The presentations: Each year people are nominated for the Honour Roll. This acknowledges those who have worked tirelessly for the school. This year, Andrew McLean and Jan McLean were selected.
Morning tea: The staff found their favourite recipes and prepared the morning tea. Children from across the school decorated the area.
Teachers are busy finalising Semester Two student reports. These will be sent home on Monday December 12th. If you would like to discuss any aspect of your child’s report, please make an appointment to meet with the teacher.
Wednesday December 14th is our Christmas Concert. It begins at 8.45am. Each year level performs and it is a wonderful way for the school to be together for the last assembly. Please come and join us.
On Thursday December 15th, the Year six students celebrate their last day at primary school. They participate in a formal graduation ceremony, followed by dancing and lunch. They return to school by 2.30 for the Ringing of the Bell. This is another Canning Vale Primary School tradition. The bell from the original school was given to us by a past teacher, Mr Andrew Bramley. At the Ringing of the Bell, the school gathers. The graduands form a circle around the outside (together with staff members who are also leaving) and ring this bell for the last time. This is a moving celebration and one that students and staff remember for their lifetime.
This is the penultimate newsletter for the year. We will publish one on Thursday December 15th. This will give you significant 2017 dates so you can plan your calendar.
