Five returning schools and two new entries, Williams Primary School and Gnowangerup District High School, joined us to make a total of eight participating schools. We had just over 200 chairs setup in the hall and every seat was filled. A very big thank you to our P&C who did a tremendous job once again with the food, Jenny Williams for her beautiful floral work and Scribe efforts, Julie Justins for being the Scribe and of course to Michèle Brown who once again was the Judge for the event.
To the rest of the team I thank you personally for all that you did to contribute to such a great day for our School and Town and particularly Tamara on her meticulous preparation and planning for the event - she had everything paper wise completed and simply ready to go! Thank you Tamara!
The day is very lively and requires a sustained effort by all involved to keep to the clock and make the day run on time. We, of course, would like to pay a special tribute to all of the teachers across the district who coached their students and prepared them for the day, without your time and commitment our children would simply miss out on such a valuable GROWTH opportunity.
To the students of Dumbleyung Primary School, I congratulate you on your ‘Commitment to Achieve’, the Term of preparation, daily practise and dedicated efforts to complete your Art all came together and paid off for a collective result of overall winning school for the day! Well done to you and those around you who encouraged you along the way. Your teachers and I, are super proud of you, well done!
Spectators and competitors were also asked to vote for their favourite piece of Art work and the Popular Choice award went to Katelyn Ferry—Nyabing Primary School. A final award was given to the Highest Scoring School over the day and this prestigious award this year went to Dumbleyung Primary School.
