2022 Faction Carnival
Book Week Parade
Some great costumes for our annual Book Week Character Parade
Dance Proms Spiel
On the 25th May we had 3 amazing people come and perform for us from Act, Belong, Commit – Dance Proms. 2 of them danced for us (Sarah and Denzel) and the 3rd was the awesome DJ (Marcen). They performed different dances such as hip hop, classical ballet, contemporary and even the can can! They taught us about healthy eating, the importance of exercise and mental health. At the beginning Faris and Dawn took part in a push up challenge warm up. In the middle the whole school did the actions for Dem Bones. At the end the year 6 students were invited out the front to dance with them. It was a fun experience for all of us.

Walk Safely to School Day
National Walk Safely to School Day is a community initiative that aims to raise awareness of the health, road safety, transport and environmental benefits that regular walking (especially to and from school) can provide for the long term well-being of our children. Apart from the physical benefits, regular walking also has a favourable impact on children’s cognitive and academic performance.
West Coast Eagles Visit
Room 11 had the pleasure of being part of the West Coast Eagles Football clinic today hosted by players Jackson Nelson and Harry Edwards from the West Coast Eagles.
Interschool Swimming Carnival
A reduced number of schools participated in the Interschool Swim Carnival held at Aqualife on Tuesday March 22 this year due to COVID. It was still a great day out and we are pleased our students got to be involved. With an isolation interrupted training schedule, we still managed to have a great turnout. The commitment our students showed to their teammates and school should be commended. We took out champion school and had a number of individual winners.
INTERSCHOOL CRICKET CARNIVAL
The Interschool Cricket carnival was held at Kent St High School on the 6th April with 6 schools competing in four divisions. It was a very disjointed journey to the carnival this term for our students who were faced with periods of isolation and interruptions. Only last week were they able to train together in their teams. Despite this, our students put their best foot forward and represented Kewdale proudly. Unable to be there, I was lucky watch videos supplied by parents and I was so impressed with their straight arm bowling and supportive cheering for one another. I saw Dawn hit the wickets for a runout and congratulations to Fiona for getting a hat trick in the last game of the day. Mrs Dalton reported that the excitement and celebrations were very special for the Division B girls to be part of.
Once again, well done to our captains for their efforts with training and equipment. Thanks so much to Mr Kingston and Ms Dalton for training and looking after our students at the carnival. A huge thank you to Chris Prescott and Mel Pitcher for coaching and managing the Division A team. Your help is greatly appreciated.
Another amazing Harmony Day, bringing together all our amazing cultures.
