School cel­e­brates year and pre­pares to usher in 2018

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - REPORTER NEWS -

ST ANNE’S Pri­mary School cel­e­brated the achieve­ments made as a com­mu­nity over the past year at its an­nual pre­sen­ta­tion night on De­cem­ber 5.

Par­ents, fam­ily and com­mu­nity guests en­joyed a night un­der the stars as stu­dents from each year sung Christ­mas songs and awards were pre­sented.

Prin­ci­pal Dar­rin Croft looked back on the year and how it had re­flected the cen­tral goal of the school.

“Cen­tral in our school vi­sion is our stu­dents, that they are nur­tured to de­velop in­di­vid­u­ally as cre­ative and re­spon­si­ble learn­ers with a love of truth, faith and knowl­edge,” Mr Croft said.

“I know through vis­it­ing rooms, be­ing present at as­sem­blies, read­ing re­ports and just talk­ing to our stu­dents that they have all con­tin­ued to grow as re­spon­si­ble learn­ers. “For this I am very proud of all of them.”

Mr Croft in­tro­duced a new award this year, with the Ver­i­tas Award pre­sented to a mem­ber of the Year 6 grad­u­at­ing class who in their time at St Anne’s had con­sis­tently as­pired to the school motto of Ver­i­tas, which is Latin for truth.

The in­au­gu­ral re­cip­i­ent of the award was Nina Ben­nett.

Stu­dent lead­er­ship po­si­tions for Se­mes­ter 1, 2018, were also an­nounced with Char­rish Maniego named the head girl and Alain Ro­das the head boy.

For­mer St Anne’s prin­ci­pal Peter Sell also ad­dressed the crowd and an­nounced his re­tire­ment from education.
