Telethon Speech and Hearing News

Last weekend saw two of our St Stephen’s Primary students participate in the Power of Speech Awards run by Telethon Speech and Hearing.  This is an annual event where students present a  3 minute speech of their choice in front of an audience of about 200 people.

This year we had Amelie McCormack from Year 2 present a speech titled ‘My Favourite Things’ and Eamon Doak from Year 1 present one titled ‘It is What it is’.

Both Amelie and Eamon spoke with confidence and great expression and we were very, very proud of them.  It was an especially exciting day for Eamon, who won his section.

Well done to both of you, you represented TSH, St Stephen’s School and yourselves admirably.

Both these students will present their speeches this Friday at The Loud Shirt and Sock Day assembly commencing at 2.45pm which will then be followed by our end of term PP-6 Worship.

 

The Wizard of Oz Production

 

As the term comes to a close, I would like to say how very proud I was of the Year 3 to 6 students who participated in the production of The Wizard of Oz. The quality of the performances was outstanding, the effort and dedication to doing things as well as possible was amazing and the experience gained by our students was simply incredible! You may, or may not, be aware of my background but, I can say from a professional viewpoint that the colour, staging, sets and utilisation of space was nothing short of brilliant; Alison Hignett, you are awesome!!!

To you, the parents, thank you for your support with this massive venture and, to the teaching staff, you always do so much for the growth and positive development of your students that I am grateful for your work every day.

Finally, to Alison and her production team, thank you for so very much….. time to rest until the next great idea.

Brett Roberts

 

To celebrate the end of term and raise money for Telethon Speech and Hearing, all students and staff are invited to wear their loudest shirt and socks this Friday 27 September for a gold coin donation. Looking forward to seeing all the bright colours coming together! Please see note above about the special assembly on Friday.

Kindy Fundraising Initiative

This Term we asked our Kindy families to contribute one family recipe. We have worked closely with the Kindy children to create illustrations for their recipe. These recipes and illustrations have formed a collaborative Cook Book!

We are pleased to announce that our professional cookbook is now ready to be printed. We would like to open up the opportunity for our cookbooks to be purchased by members of our School Community! Each Cookbook will be a steal at only $15!

And the best part is, all funds raised from our Family Cook Book will go directly to supporting Gene Warriors, a cause very close to the Doak family’s hearts. They are raising funds to buy a Stem Cell Robot for the Lions Eye Institute WA and to support research into Stem Cell Therapy.

So, how do you get your hands on one?

Starting this Thursday, please feel free to come and view a sample book outside the Kindy Studio (just near the coffee area in the Forum). This is also where you will find the order forms.

Please return your completed order form with the EXACT CASH to an educator in Kindy by Friday 27 September (end of Term 3). Please note that this deadline is very firm and we will unfortunately not be able to process any orders after this date. Unfortunately, we do not have the facilities to provide change so please ensure you have the correct change.

Thank you in advance for your support & happy cooking!
