Inter House Swimming Carnival
Congratulations to all of the students who participated in the St Damien’s CPS Swimming Carnival on Tuesday. It was amazing to see how all students, no matter what their swimming ability, try their very best during the carnival. The weather provided a very pleasant day which complemented the students getting in and out of the pool without the excessive heat and sunburn.
The final outcome of the day for our factions houses was as follows:
· 1st: Melros
· 2nd: Florida
· 3rd: Bouvard
· 4th: Wannanup
There were some outstanding individual efforts on the day, with a number of our students being awarded with both ‘Runner’s Up’ and ‘Champion’ Boy and Girl swimmers for each Year level. Congratulations goes to these students for their individual successes, as follows:
· Year 3 Runner Up Girl & Boy: Ariah-Rose Vallance & Tyler Penny
· Year 3 Champion Girl & Boy: Amelie Wroth & Tiarnan Shadlow
· Year 4 Runner Up Girl & Boy: Hayley Brown & Solomon Middlebrook
· Year 4 Champion Girl & Boy: Remy Lukasik & Nate Broderick

We had great support from the parent community as volunteers during the carnival. A big thank you to all of the parents who did volunteer and contribute to the success of the carnival.
A special thank you to Miss Sanders for all of her efforts in planning, coordinating and running the swimming carnival this year. She did an amazing job ensuring all students got the opportunity to participate and enjoy the event. She was supported by all of the school staff and I thank them for their efforts during the day, as well.
Some of the students in the school qualified to compete in the upcoming Inter-School Swimming Carnival, which will be held on Tuesday 8 November, 2022. More information regarding this will be shared in the coming weeks.
World Teachers Day
World Teachers’ Day is a chance to recognise and celebrate the incredible contributions teachers have made in our communities and is an opportunity to celebrate the teachers who are making, or have made, an impact on our lives and the lives of our students.
To all teachers at St Damien’s Catholic Primary School, thank you for everything you do for all of the students in your care in our wonderful community.
Tomorrow, Friday 28 October is ‘Bandana Day’. During the week it has been great to see a lot of students wearing their bandannas in support of this initiative of helping kids with cancer. Bandanas have been selling through the front office and if you would like to purchase one, they are $5.
