Student Leadership Speeches

Nominating Year 5 students wrote inspiring speeches about their ambitions to represent the school as Student Councillors and Faction Captains in 2018.

 

Transparency was the aim behind the change to the process, students designed campaign posters, wrote their speeches at home and then read them before parents, staff and peers.

Safe Swimming Message for all Families

As summer approaches, we want students and families to enjoy our beautiful waterways; remembering to swim between the flags when at the beach and stay safe around the water.

 

Royal Life Saving’s recently released National Drowning Report shows that 280 people drowned in Australian waterways in 2015-16. This is a five per cent increase from the previous year.  Each drowning death is a personal story, affecting families, rescuers and communities.

 

The Department of Education, Royal Life Saving WA and Surf Life Saving WA wish everyone a safe and fun summer holiday.
