We had a wonderful array of activities for our NAIDOC celebrations last week.
They included Aboriginal games, art and dance, and our students engaged with all the activities really well. Thank you to Mrs Eades and Ms Griffin and the rest of the Aboriginal Education team for their great work in organising the week. Thursday’s assembly was a highlight.
Thank you to Mrs Morgan who has organised our Book Week activities. The library looks stunning, the theme this year was Find Your Treasure.
March 26/27 we saw two days of great Maths activities with Professor Maths.
It looked wonderful and I’m sure our students got a lot from it.

INTERSCHOOL CRICKET CARNIVAL
Thursday 29th March we headed off to Kent St Senior High School to participate in the WACA run interschool T20 Blast cricket carnival.
Kewdale was represented by four teams, 2 boys and 2 girls, from years 4-6. All four teams performed well, with wins from all teams in round 1!
Our most successful team, coached by Mr Bayliss and with help from Geoff Tilbee on the day, were the boys ‘A’ division team.
Going through undefeated and lead by captains Jake P, Phoenix L and Micah A the boys now have the chance to play off in the state finals held at the WACA. They will first need to get through the regional finals in term 4 played at Yokine Reserve. We wish them all the best and are sure we will see them out training!!
EASTER HAT PARADE
It was great to see so much effort put into the hats made for our Easter Hat Parade. I’m sure everyone had fun showing them off.
Our Colour Run was a great success on Friday 1st June. Most children participated and
we had a very good turn out of parents. I am very pleased to an ounce that the event made a profit of $2 580. The funds are going towards iPads for special needs students to use. A big thank you to Mrs Piani and Mrs Fiegert for organising the day. We look forward to having it again in two year’s time.
Children in Rooms A1, 2, 9, 10, 11 and 13 have collected donated items to make up care packages to send to our troops in Afghanistan.
The children were very enthusiastic about this and many included personal notes to our troops overseas. In the end, we posted 16 boxes to members of our defence force.
Congratulations and thank you to all the children that donated to this worthy cause.
FOOTBALL CLINIC WITH WEST COAST EAGLES PLAYERS
On Monday 14th May 2018, we welcomed two West Coast Eagles players, Luke Partington and Tarir Bayok, to Kewdale. They came to run football clinics for all classes from PP-Year 6. Luke played several games for the Eagles in 2017, whilst Tarir is on the rookies list and is yet to make his AFL debut but is hoping to get his opportunity one day soon. Here are a few photos from the morning’s sessions.
