Mothers Day at WRJ
What a terrific morning to celebrate Mothers Day at White Rock. A beautiful breakfast followed by a fashion parade. Thanks to all the wonderful parents involved in making this such an enjoyable annual event.
There was plenty of dancing and fun at the KBJ disco last Friday evening. Great to see so many dressed up for the “Heroes and Villains” theme. Parents, students and staff were on their best behavior as we had top-flight security in place! Thanks to the parents for providing the food, drink and decorations and to our staff for making this a truly enjoyable night.
Junior School assemblies
Our student-led Junior School assemblies are a wonderful opportunity to celebrate student achievements and thank those who have helped us. It is always great to see our parents in attendance and sharing our celebrations. And what a stunning performance on the piano by Vivian Zhang at WRJ! Thanks to the Year 1s for a terrific presentation and congratulations to the award winners at KBJ.
Really enjoyed a visit to WRJ on Friday where I was shown around the Prep garden and saw some of the Year 1s making bubbles with straw-built blowers they had designed themselves.
Peninsula Cross Country
All roads led to TAS WR on Friday for the Peninsula Cross Country event. The ovals looked great, TAS students performed very well indeed, and the P&F ladies worked up a sweat feeding and watering the masses. Thanks all for a great day.
Plain English Speaking Australia competition
Congratulations to Max Pappin and Elizabeth Tomscoll for their presentations at the Plain English Speaking Australia competition on Saturday at St. Monica’s. Both students spoke very well in their prepared pieces and handled the impromptu and interview sessions with poise and maturity.
