Port Kennedy students celebrated Endeavour Schools’ inclusive approach to education last month with a day of activities to support social and emotional learning.
Endeavour Schools hosted its annual Fun and Friendly Fair on March 28 as a way of rewarding and empowering students by highlighting the positive culture that exists there.
Principal Chris Burgess said events like the fair were important for the cultural identity of the school and the reinforcement of its values.
“It was great to have many of our parents come along and participate in the activities with our students as they play an important role in the education of our students,” he said.
“The leadership and responsibility of our older students who supported and guided their younger buddies throughout the different activities was really positive and reinforced what it means to be a student at Endeavour Schools.”
The fair was also a way of putting the schools’ buddy program to use with older students joining those younger for a range of fun activities including obstacle courses, making music, face painting, ‘win in a minute style events’, biscuit decorating and sporting skills challenges.
