Prin­ci­pal in­vites par­ents to help choose name, logo and ethos of Banksia Grove east pri­mary school.

PAR­ENTS of chil­dren who will at­tend the fu­ture pri­mary school in east Banksia Grove can help choose a school name, logo and colours next week.

Foun­da­tion prin­ci­pal Stephen Be­van, who started in the role this term, said par­ents of chil­dren in the in­take area could at­tend the “com­mu­nity con­ver­sa­tion cafe” from 6.15pm on Au­gust 28.

“That’s an op­por­tu­nity for par­ents to start build­ing the school cul­ture,” he said.

“We want a school that is com­mu­nity-based.”

Mr Be­van said they would dis­cuss the school name, logo, in­de­pen­dent pub­lic school sta­tus, uni­form op­tions and the over­all di­rec­tion of the school.

This will be his first role as a foun­da­tion prin­ci­pal.

“It’s re­ally ex­cit­ing; it’s a learn­ing curve,” Mr Be­van, who started teach­ing in 1990 and has held deputy prin­ci­pal or prin­ci­pal po­si­tions since 1999, in­clud­ing most re­cently at Made­ley Pri­mary School, said.

To reg­is­ter for the com­mu­nity con­ver­sa­tion cafe, call 0436 626 571 or email Stephen.be­van@ed­u­ca­tion. wa.edu.au.
