One of the most loved Richmond social events is the big breakfast.  It’s a chance for families to socialise before work, in our beautiful quadrangle. There is a big breakfast this Friday, 25 October, from 7.30am to 8.30am, and everyone is warmly invited to drop in.  I have posted the details on Facebook and the event is on our website calendar.  And yes, there is a coffee van! Thanks to Chris and Tony for organising.

Friday looks like a busy day. Following the big breakfast, there will be an assembly with a performance by rooms 12 and 13, and later that morning, the year 6 graduation photograph will be taken. It is also World Teachers Day – an opportunity to recognise and appreciate our teachers.

Parents are very welcome to come along on Thursday November 7 to see the Hon Sue Ellery, MLC, Minister for Education and Training, officially open our new administration building. We will have a short ceremony in the quad from 10.15am, at which the Minister will speak and the chorale will sing.

The P&C is seeking a canteen manager for 2020. If you have an interest in finding out more about this school-hours, part-time job, please let us know by email: Richmond.PS@education.wa.edu.au

We will have a film crew at school on the afternoon of November 5, using our site to shoot some advertisements for a local food box delivery company. They are seeking interested children to be in the adverts. If this sounds like something you’d like your child to take part in, please click here for more information.   Apparently the advert will be shown, amongst other places, at the Perth KISS concert… sounds exciting!  Parents of selected students are welcome to attend the filming.

Finally, we wish our interschool athletics team the best of luck for the carnival next week. Have fun, play fair and do your best.  Remember to give yourself the best chance by eating healthily every day, sleeping at least eight hours every night and exercising daily. These are the things all of our students need to be doing to be at their optimum capacity for learning every day.

Hope to see you at Friday’s breakfast,

Lisa Dentith.
