Student Leaders 2018

Last week we had over 20 Grade 5 students deliver wonderful speeches. It was a very impressive ceremony, the children spoke beautifully.

All children in Grade 3, 4 & 5 voted & the results are:

 

§  School Captains – Jack Taylor & Mirriam Tippet

§  Vice Captains – Tom Pratt & Summer Roberts

§  SRC President – Imogen Morgan & Cody McKerrow

 

Congratulations to these students, they will make fantastic leaders. There will be an official presentation early next year

There will be many other opportunities for leadership in 2018 and I encourage all students to “put their hand up”

Forensic Science Videos

During Term 3 our Year 6 students were involved in making videos to show preventative actions that can be taken in the community. Six other local schools were also involved in this program. There were 3 categories that could be entered: theft, burglary and theft from a car. Our students won the category ‘theft from a motor car.’ Congratulations to Tahlia, Ethen, Darci and Oscaray with their message to keep belongings out of sight when your car is unsupervised. The catchy message is ‘LCC: Lock it, Conceal it, Cover it! Thank you to ‘One Idea’ the Commercial Production Company who professionally filmedthe students. The video will be shown on Prime 7 TV - January and February 2018AC

Grade 6 Graduation

Next Thursday 14th December our Grade 6 students will be attending their Graduation at the Mercy Theatre. This is a very special occasion, I do hope you can come and join the celebration. Tickets have been sent home with the students and they are all very excited and are preparing for the night. There are still a limited number of tickets available if you need some extras, please see Janine to organise extra tickets to be sent home. 

Grade 6 Transition to Secondary School

Next Tuesday & Wednesday our Grade 6 students head off to experience a taste of Secondary School. I know they are all very excited and I wish them all the best. Please support them if they are nervous, as this experience can be daunting for some.

Our School Concert – “Under the Western Stars”

As you know, MWPS has a very big concert at the Arts Centre each ‘Even year’ and on the ‘Odd year’ we have a “mini concert” on the school oval.

This concert is low key and a chance for everyone to get together to celebrate the end of another FANTASTIC year at West. There is no cost – unless you are purchasing a sausage at the BBQ or maybe even an Ice cream or two.

It’s bound to be fun!

When: Tuesday 19th December

Where: MWPS School Oval

Time: BBQ will be operating form 6.30 – 7.15pm

Concert will begin 7.30pm Sharp

40 hour Back Pack Challenge

Last Thursday a group of year 6’s took part in the 40 Hour Back Pack Challenge. This was to raise awareness for refugees and displaced children. We lived out of our backpack for 40 hours with only the essentials. We had to stay overnight at the school and sleep on the ground with no mattress. We did a lot of activities to help us understand more about refugees. This was such an emotional and eye opening experience! It made us really understand what refugees have to go through and it made me so grateful for the life we live today.

Keep Victoria Beautiful

Mildura West Primary school was announced as the Winner of the Keep Victoria Beautiful, Active Schools Category of the Tidy Towns Sustainable Communities Awards 2017.

Being involved in many environmental initiatives within the school and beyond the school gate, led to the award success. Our students in 5/6 did an excellent job earlier this year to convince the KVB Judge that our student action teams make a difference to the sites at Rio Vista, Lake Ranfuly, Johnson’s Bend and Etiwanda Wetlands.
