Centenary

Richmond Primary School will be 100 years old on 21 March 2021.

There will be some celebratory events.

P&C Centenary Fete 20 March

The P&C will hold a Centenary Fete on Saturday 20 March 2021.  To get involved in any way please email: rpsspringfair2020@gmail.com

Current news on the fete planning is here:

The P&C Centenary Fete committee last met on 29 October. The group has planned out the event and is at the point of needing people with specific skills. If this sounds like you and you can help, please do let us know:

  • Photographer
  • Face painter
  • Entertainers
  • MC’s
  • People with ‘celebrity’ contacts who may be able to secure or donate services or prizes
  • Someone who can organise a ‘Silent Auction’ (with some big ticket items!)
  • Someone who can organise a raffle
  • A fashion show coordinator, and people who wish to be involved in showing their clothes or modelling
  • Stall holders
  • Someone to organise alumni gatherings during the day

Students will have a school stall at the Centenary Fair and classes will soon all be making craft items to sell (we are currently collecting glass jars with lids and would appreciate you sending these to school if you have any).

The next P&C Centenary Fete meetings are 19 November and 8 December, both at 7.15pm at the Swan Yacht Club.

Assembly 19 March

The school will hold an assembly on Friday 19 March 2021. We anticipate performances by students and some speeches.  We cannot decide audience numbers until closer to the date due to COVID restrictions.

Walk Through the Decades 20 March

The school will open classrooms to create a walk through the decades to 2021. Displays will be created by students.  This will be open on Fete Day.

The school is collecting memorabilia from the decades since the school opened. If you have anything we could use in a display please call us on 9438 8700 or email Richmond.PS@education.wa.edu.au

Art works

At school, our arts teachers are engaging students in creating large-scale centenary art works in conjunction with artist, Virginia Ward;  and in composing a school centenary song with Eskimo Joe musician, Kav Temperley.
