Principal Update – Term 2 Issue 2

Sorry Day Assembly

Last week we had our Sorry Day Assembly to remember the Stolen Generations and reflect on how we can work towards Reconciliation. Aboriginal Elders, Mr Frank Davis and Mrs Kathy Davis, joined us to share their story with the students. Mr Davis also treated us to a wonderful didgeridoo performance, accompanied by his great-granddaughter, Seanna. We then did a

Walk for Reconciliation before placing our reflections on the front lawn. In art, throughout Reconciliation Week, each class will be adding to our depiction of the Rabbit Proof Fence in commemoration of the Stolen Generations.

Winter Carnival

On Friday 21 May, two mixed netball teams from West Northam went to compete in the Winter Carnival. I would like to congratulate all of the students who competed in the carnival for their great sportsmanship and excellent behaviour; and of course, for their spectacular performance, with Team A winning 7 of their 9 games, and Team B winning 6 of their 9 games. Well done, guys, you should be very proud of your achievement!

I would also like to thank Miss Shepherd for organising and coaching the teams, Miss Lynn and Mrs Don for assisting with the coaching, and Ms Slater for accompanying the teams to the carnival together with Miss Lynn. The time and effort you put in to helping the teams to be their best is greatly appreciated.


Next Thursday, Room 1 will be hosting their assembly in the undercover area at 9:00am. The class has been practising hard, and it is looking like it is going to be a wonderful performance, so please do come along to support the students, we look forward to seeing you there!
