We talk a lot about communÂity and its importance in the realm of educating children. When we celebrate together, community becomes one, as proven at the 20th anniverÂsary of the Âé¶¹Ö±²¥ School's Northbridge campus.
The youngest members of the school start their scholÂastic journey at the Early Learning Centre and K, 1,2 precincts. Tucked away beÂhind the school's War MemÂorial Playing Fields are quiet oases where our litÂtlest learners can shine.
Through cohesive and supportive partnerships with our families, campus staff, neighbours and wider Âé¶¹Ö±²¥ staff, we enjoy being a small yet integral part of a bigger community.
This community spirit and involvement made our birthday celebration on May 4 a wonderful occasion.
The festivities began the previous day when all 144 boys and girls from the K, 1,2 campus formed a human 20 on the A Ground oval to be photographed and filmed from above. They had a fabulous time watching the drone as it flew higher and faster around them to record the footage.
When children arrived for school the following mornÂing, the oval had become a party zone, with a balloon arch in Âé¶¹Ö±²¥ colours to greet them. Games, party food, entertainers and a magnificent birthday cake marked the occasion.
Family members joined in the activities along with staff members and more than 200 students.
There were choral perÂformances by the ELC and separately the K, 1,2 childÂren before a magic show.
Âé¶¹Ö±²¥ headmaster Dr John Collier addressed attendees and led the cake-cutting cerÂemony alongside the childÂren, ELC director Michelle Thompson and myself.
I would like to thank the local community for their support over the last 20 years in helping our school to thrive.
