Stella Wild and Pritika Baptist Win Merit Certificate Design Comp!

The school recently decided to redesign our Merit Certificate, creating two new Merit Certificates for Citizenship and Endeavour. The idea was that these would show how students are following our school values of Doing Your Best, Honesty, Valuing Others and Respect.

MissAndrew and the Student Council organised a competition to design the new Merit Certificates. To tell students and teachers about the competition, the Student Councillors paired up and made posters for all the classes.

Students who were interested designed their certificates and handed them in to their class teacher, who then chose the top six designs from their class and gave them to the Student Council. The Student Councillors each chose their two favourite designs and these made up the finalists in the competition. From these finalists the Student Council voted for the winners.

The winners were Pritika Baptist and Stella Wild. Both stuedents are from Miss S’s Year 5 class and she was very happy that they were chosen!

Pritika’s Citizenship Merit Certificate design is of a paper doll chain circle with a spiral of repeating words: “be kind – respect – include all”.

Stella’s Endeavour Merit Certificate design is a school logl in the background and a large gold star in the centre.

The new Certificates were first presented to students at our Assembly on the 29th of July, which was boss, because Her Excellency, the Governor of Western Australia, Kerry Sanderson AC was there!

There were loads of cool entries, which made it so hard for the Student Council to choose. Commendations to the designs that were chosen for the finals and thanks to all the students who entered. Finally, thank you Miss Andrew for organising this great competition.

They were the winners of our raffle and each chose $20 worth of items from the fair.

Thank you for your support.

The Governor’s visit

Thank you to all the parents who attended our special assembly on Friday, which was in honour of a special guest, the Governor of Western Australia, her Excellency, the Honourable Kerry Sanderson AC.  A big congratulations to Maddie in Year 5, who won the competition to introduce the Governor to the school. Below is her speech, which she beautifully read to the assembly. Well done, Maddie!

 

Good morning. My name is Maddie and I have the pleasure of introducing the Governor of Western Australia. Today we have the honour of being in the presence of her Excellency, the Honourable Kerry Sanderson AC, Governor of Western Australia.

 Her Excellency is the thirty second and current Governor of Western Australia. She has been in office since the 20th of October 2014 and is the first woman to hold the position.

 The Governor was born in Subiaco. For primary and high school, she went to Wembley Primary School and Churchlands Senior High School.

 Her Excellency graduated from the University of WA with a Bachelor of Science, a double major in Mathematics and later a Bachelor in Economics. In 2005, she was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Letters by the University of WA. In 2015, she was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from Murdoch University.

 The Governor was previously a businesswoman and senior public servant. In 2007, she helped Fremantle Ports to win the Australian Business Excellence Medal for the top organisation in Australia.

 Her Excellency’s job as Governor of Western Australia requires her to:

      • Preside over the Executive Council
      • Appoint Ministers, Judges, Magistrates and Justices of the Peace
      • Appoint the President of the Legislative Council
      • Accept the resignation of Members of the Legislative Council; and
      • Issue writs for general elections.

 We appreciate the time and effort her Excellency puts into her role as Governor. Please join me in welcoming the Governor, the Honourable Kerry Sanderson AC to our school. Thank you.
