Parents & Community - EVENTS

Paraburdoo Primary School hosts and is involved in many events throughout the year. For more detailed information on upcoming events, please check the term planner, newsletters, Facebook & Dojo.

Assemblies

Assemblies are held every few weeks and include items from a designated class (refer to the term planner for assembly dates and host class). The class hosts the assembly and includes learning experiences from class or acts learned for the assembly. Assemblies also include merit certificate awards and special recognitions.

Presentation Night

Presentation Night is held at the end of the school year and showcases an item from each class and presentations are given for student achievements. Individual students from each class are recognised for their hard work throughout the year and whole school awards are also presented. Presentation Night is a fantastic night where parents, family and friends can celebrate a successful school year with staff and students.

Our World of Learning - Open Night

Our World of Learning Open Night invites parents to come and enjoy the work that their children have completed throughout the school year. This event holds two sessions on the day:- 2.45pm - 3.45pm / 6.15pm - 7.15pm.  This is a great way for students to show their families all their hard work.

Sport Carnivals/Faction Athletics Carnival

Paraburdoo Primary School is involved in several sporting carnivals, both intraschool and interschool, throughout the year. These days showcase the abilities of our students and promote participation, enjoyment and team spirit. Our Faction Swimming Carnival is held in Term 1 and Faction Athletics Carnival is held in Term 3.

The Faction Carnivals sees our three factions, Ashburton, Fortescue and Robe, compete for the Championship Shield.  Following the Faction Carnivals, students may also be involved in the Interschool Swimming Carnival and Interschool Athletics Carnival. In Term Two, students are also involved in the Freo Dockers Cup. Competition in the Interschool Carnivals involves the two Tom Price schools, North Tom Price Primary School and Tom Price Primary School. While the carnival sees our three schools compete against one another, it also gives our schools the opportunity to share our passion for physical activity and show our sportsmanship against one another at a competitive primary school level.

Senior Camp 

To enable our senior class to bond and become leaders in our school we organise a yearly camp. This camp incorporates fun, learning and team building and has visited such places as Perth, Canberra, Broome, Point Perron and Dampier.  This year (2018) our year 6 group held their camp in Term 3, Week 1 in Dampier.

Incursions

Throughout the year we invite a wide variety of visiting performers for the enjoyment and engagement of our students. Groups range from authors, Scitech, Constable Care, sporting clinics, dance and musical groups. These incursions provide students with unique experiences which enriches their learning.  

NAIDOC

Paraburdoo Primary School is proud to be involved with the NAIDOC Day (National Aboriginies and Islanders Day Observance Committee) celebration on an annual basis.

Book Fairs

Are are held during the year and notices will go out to parents/carers when the Fairs are on.  We also have Book Week dress up and this year (2018) was held in Term 3.  Book Fair is a great way to stock up on books for home as well as raising money to enable us to enhance our school library collection.
