Gift of a Candle Service

058 061 060

This week we shared in the farewell to our Year 12 cohort at our whole school service. This really is a special event as our Kindergarten and Pre-Primary students give a candle to the Year 12 leavers as part of our tradition at John Wollaston. The benefit of being one school from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 is clear, as our Primary students are provided with a sense of what they can aspire to as modelled by the wonderful Year 12 students. This sense of community is what makes our school a special place.

2017 class list requests
Over the next few weeks we will finalise class lists for 2017. If you have a request regarding a class placement for you child, please email or write to Primary Secretary, Donna Brown, before Friday 4 November, briefly outlining the rationale for your request. Please note that this should not include requests for a specific teacher but rather focus on sibling or peer relationship issues relevant for your child. We hold all our teaching staff in high regard and therefore class lists are determined by the composition of the class and not the individual teacher. We cannot guarantee that all requests will be met; however, I can assure you that a great deal of time and consideration takes place in determining each class for the coming year.

Year 6 City Encounter experience
On Thursday 13 October the Year 6s went on an exciting Encounter experience into Perth CBD exploring the city's artworks and Elizabeth Quay.
