A busy term As the 2017 school year draws to a close, John Wollaston continues to be a hive of activity.

While the holiday period can sometimes be a stressful and difficult time for some families, I do have some simple tips that may assist in making the most of your time together as a family. 1. Schedule some time over the holiday period that is dedicated to the family. Ensure that everyone clears their diary and commits to spending quality time together.2.

Issue 19 Principal

End of Year Events Staff Farewells Student Farewells Thank you End of Year EventsThis is a special time of the year as we celebrate the students' achievements as a school community. On Monday evening I attended Year 6 Valedictory and PYP Exhibition, an important occasion to acknowledge our senior Primary students. The students were invited to reflect on their Primary years, take pride in their many achievements and begin to look forward to the next phase of their schooling. Whilst there were some nostalgic moments during the Valedictory, the overwhelming mood was one of excitement. The Exhibition, which is the culmination of the PYP, provided an opportunity to engage with the students about their learning. As I have come to expect, the students were articulate, confident and knowledgeable. Congratulations to our Year 6 students and class teachers Zayja Monteleone, Kate Hewson, Sheree Squillace, Brady Morris and Glyn Teape (Semester 1) on their fine work this year. On Tuesday evening Year 10 and 11 students celebrated Praise and Thanksgiving with The Right Reverend Kate Wilmot, Administrator of the Anglican Diocese of Perth in attendance. It was a successful evening acknowledging the many achievements of our students. Head Prefect Elect Tom Ayres delivered…
