There have been very long lines of children at lunchtimes this week wanting to audition for Richmond’s got Talent. This is a show organised annually by the student councillors and is always a lot of fun.  It looks like about fifty acts will audition this week.  Around twenty will progress to the final on the last Wednesday afternoon of term, which everyone gathers to watch.  Richmond kids certainly have lots to offer.

The athletics carnival is shaping up to be another fantastic day next Wednesday. Everyone from pre-primary to year 6 will be involved in events and they all need to wear their faction shirt and a hat. Year 6 parents will run a refreshments stall, but children do need to bring their usual water bottle and food please.  Hopefully families will have a great day cheering for their faction. The program for the day is on our website at the top of the physical education page here: http://richmondps.wa.edu.au/programs/physical-education/

If you are coming to watch the year 3-6 field events on Monday morning, and are able to help out with some measuring please let us know on Richmond.PS@education.wa.edu.au  Thank you!

All spots in the Bricks 4 Kidz workshop that will run on Mondays after school next term have been filled, so I have organised for a second workshop to run on Wednesdays. This is now open for booking on their website:  Wednesday class

If you previously booked for Monday and now prefer Wednesday, the company says please just email them to let them know the name of the child you would like to transfer and they will do their best to help: applecross@bricks4kidz.com

Other upcoming school events include the pre-primary / year 1 dance concert; swimming lessons for year 1-3 students; the music assembly and the football assembly.  All of these enrichment activities are much loved by the children and are on our web calendar.

We are looking forward to the new administration block being finished. The timeline is for us to have practical completion in the holidays, and handover in week two next term.  Everyone has been really flexible during the build, not least our students, and we have really appreciated how well they have adapted.

Finally, the East Fremantle Lions Club advises their Riverside Markets start again this Sunday at Norm McKenzie Reserve on the foreshore, and will operate on the third Sunday each month. They have a bouncy castle, train rides, face painting, food… it’s a lovely event for children.

How lovely that spring is finally here!
