P&F Play Equipment
Year 6 Camp
Preparations have started for this year’s Christmas concert, being held on Wednesday 29 November, beginning at 5:30pm. Classes have started practicing their concert items during the week and are looking forward to celebrating this wonderful event in the school calendar.
One of our treasured staff members, Miss Jorje Harman, will be leaving St Damien’s at the end of the year, returning to St Mary’s Catholic School in Broome, where she spent 3 years as a teacher prior to joining our school last year. Miss Harman has been a fantastic teacher and staff member and whilst we are very sad to see her leaving, we wish her the very best as she returns to the northern part of our state. We hope she enjoys her last 6 weeks in our school community.
2024 Student Leaders
It is that time of year when our current Year 5 students go through the process of nominations and voting for the 2024 student leaders. Whilst this is both an exciting and nervous time for the participating students, it is a great opportunity for them to develop and grow in their leadership capacity and skills at school.
I congratulate all of the students who have chosen to take on the challenge to participate in the 2024 Leadership program of the school and look forward to announcing the successful students at this year’s Christmas Concert.
The current behaviour focus is for ‘waiting for supervision before playing during breaks’. What this means for students is that they need to wait for the allocated staff member to arrive on their duty site before students begin playing.
The school’s Friday afternoon Beach Sports program this week, on Friday 10 November, with our Year 1 and 2 classes going to the beach. We hope the participating classes have a great time.
