Tocumwal Pub­lic School cel­e­brated the im­por­tance of ed­u­ca­tion at a spe­cial assem­bly last week.

A large crowd in­clud­ing par­ents, grand­par­ents and chil­dren from the Tocumwal Pre-school par­tic­i­pated in the Ed­u­ca­tion Week cel­e­bra­tions.

The school show­cased many of the school’s reg­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing sing­ing, per­cus­sion, pub­lic speak­ing and recorder recitals.

Prin­ci­pal Dar­ren White said Ed­u­ca­tion Week is a time to cel­e­brate and re­flect on the im­por­tance of ed­u­ca­tion. ‘‘School­ing at Tocumwal Pub­lic is not only about now but also about the fu­ture,’’ Mr White said.

‘‘Our com­mu­nity looks to to­day’s stu­dents to de­ter­mine the world of to­mor­row.

‘‘Schools in­flu­ence the way stu­dents think, speak and be­have and some of the broad goals at Tocumwal Pub­lic are a love of learn­ing, care and re­spect for self and oth­ers, pur­suit of ex­cel­lence and fair­ness and so­cial jus­tice.

‘‘We are very proud of our stu­dents and their en­thu­si­asm to take on the many op­por­tu­ni­ties that are pro­vided for them.’’ The school choir rocked

and while the begin­ner recorder group proudly dis­played the notes they have learned.

The Glee Club wowed with a ren­di­tion of Lorde’s Roy­als, Kin­der­garten stu­dents won the crowd play­ing per­cus­sion to

and An­gus Bourchier pre­sented his win­ning Lions Club Pub­lic Speak­ing Com­pe­ti­tion speech.

‘‘As part of Ed­u­ca­tion Week, we de­cided to tie in Book Week cel­e­bra­tions as well,” Mr White said.

‘‘Stu­dents from both the pub­lic and preschools came to the assem­bly dressed in a favourite book char­ac­ter and a tremen­dous ef­fort was made by stu­dents and teach­ers alike.

‘‘The assem­bly was a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to show­case the tal­ents and en­thu­si­asm of our stu­dents.

‘‘It was also a time to recog­nise the ef­forts of the teach­ers and staff of Tocumwal Pub­lic School for their ef­forts that go be­yond ex­pec­ta­tions.”
