School’s sneaky score

North Coast Times - - FRONT PAGE -

FOR­MER teach­ers joined cur­rent staff and stu­dents cel­e­brat­ing St Andrew’s Catholic Pri­mary School’s 20th an­niver­sary this month.

Prin­ci­pal Sam Fon­taine said the Septem­ber 20 cel­e­bra­tions started with mass, then a per­for­mance by a WA Po­lice bag­piper and cake cut­ting.

“Af­ter lunch, the chil­dren and staff were treated to a per­for­mance by the Wad­um­bah Noon­gar Abo­rig­i­nal Dance Group,” he said.

“In the evening we held our an­nual open evening in­clud­ing an in­au­gu­ral art show in the hall which con­tained mas­ter­pieces from the chil­dren, a his­tor­i­cal photo dis­play of the school, and mem­o­ra­bilia from the school’s time cap­sule, which was due to be opened this year.”

Al­most all the foun­da­tion staff, in­clud­ing in­au­gu­ral prin­ci­pal Mar­garet Sweet­man

and for­mer prin­ci­pal Eileen Climo, at­tended the event, as well as Catholic Ed­u­ca­tion of­fi­cials, board mem­bers and P&C mem­bers.

“It was won­der­ful to see a num­ber of ex-staff at­tend this cel­e­bra­tion as well and com­ment upon the growth and devel­op­ment of the school as a

whole,” Mr Fon­taine said.

Mr Fon­taine said eight staff started the school, which now had al­most 50 staff mem­bers.

The school ded­i­cated the first stage of its na­turescape play area to the 20th an­niver­sary.
