LEARNING IS A TREASURE

Wishing all of our families the best for the last few weeks of Term 1 as we face the new frontier of online learning. We like to think of challenges like these as discovering new ways of doing things, who knows what we will uncover during this time! For those at home, and those on campus, please know we are all in this together and our doors (virtual and real) are always open. Take care and all the best.

GALA POSTPONED – NEW DATE!

To protect our community and to be able to present the St Stephen’s School Foundation’s Gala as the full spectacle that has been planned – amid the Government’s ban of indoor events over 100 people for the time being – we have had to postpone the highly-anticipated event until later in the year.

We are excited to announce the new date for the Gala on November 7 at Crown Perth. We hope you are still able to celebrate with us. It is set to be a great evening of food, drinks, entertainment and exciting announcements. See https://www.trybooking.com/BHKWP for more.

Sandwich Makers

Our community is now confronted with challenges like never before. St Stephen’s students rally to assist those in the Northern Corridor that are suffering financial hardship or homelessness. Students donated items to prepare sandwiches for children that might otherwise go to school hungry. A small token that will touch many.

THANKSGIVING 2020 POSTPONED

The Federal Government today advised against any organised events with more than 500 attendees in relation to stemming the community transfer cases of Coronavirus (COVID 19). In accordance with the Government’s advice, and to protect the health and wellbeing of our School community, we have decided to postpone the Thanksgiving Service, which was planned for March 31, until further notice.

We thank you for your ongoing support of our School events and will be in touch with more information when we know it is safe to proceed.

Thank you and take care.

ALL NATURAL

Jessica Sladden, Year 10, is experiencing a new approach to food service during her work experience at the Swan Valley Gourmet Farm Café. It’s a sustainable farm café that caterers for all kinds of food allergies and diets – it’s even Coeliac Australia Accredited. Jessica has been loving her time learning different skills at this quirky café!

HOMESLAND STORY

The film Donydji Homeland Story captures life in the Donyji Aboriginal Community of the Northern Territory – a people who live a lifestyle that has remained unchanged for the past 200 years. Homeland Story was filmed over 50 years and truly captures the community’s transition from nomadic life to the present day over three generations and highlights the importance of their culture and identity.

The Rotary Club of Western Endeavour and the Wadjak Northside Aboriginal Community Group will host a special screening of the film in the St Stephen’s School Duncraig Theatre on Tuesday, March 24 from 7pm. Entry is $5 cash at the door. The film is rated M so children under 15 will need to be accompanied by an adult.
