Brekkie show at school

Joondalup Times - - STREET WATCH -

PADBURY Pri­mary School took to the air­waves re­cently for Free Cof­fee Fri­day.

Ra­dio sta­tion 98five Son­shine FM vis­ited the school to broad­cast its break­fast show, bring­ing with it a van with free cof­fee and donuts along with the school’s break­fast bar­be­cue and cake stall.

P&C pres­i­dent Jenny Evans said this was the se­cond time the school had hosted 98five, which this time was “even big­ger and bet­ter”.

“There was a great at­mos­phere amongst stu­dents and par­ents who en­joyed the en­ter­tain­ment of the break­fast ra­dio show,” she said.

“The crowd en­joyed lis­ten­ing to the school choir per­form and the West Coast Ea­gles ran a train­ing ses­sion.”

Though usual break­fast pre­sen­ter Kirste was ab­sent, Morro and pro­ducer Corey were on hand to in­ter­view school prin­ci­pal Neil Wood, chap­lain Jade Cromp­ton and P&C mem­ber, par­ent and lo­cal artist Su­san Arkley.

With just 107 stu­dents, Mr Woods said the suc­cess and hap­pi­ness of the school came down to a com­mu­nity ef­fort and cre­ative projects.

“We have fan­tas­tic staff and par­ents who are in­volved in all sorts of events pro­mot­ing the school, a chap­lain seek­ing to or­gan­ise com­mu­nity out­reach, putting to­gether fundrais­ing to re­source the school,” he said.

Money raised from the event will fund re­sources for the school’s chap­laincy ser­vice.
