NCVISSA – NETBALL CARNIVAL 

Good luck to the students competing in the Secondary Netball Carnival being held in Geraldton tomorrow. Mr Quimby and Ms Pearson will be keeping the school updated on their progress over the course of the day. 

NAIDOC WEEK 2020 

To kick off our NAIDOC Week celebrations we had a visit from local Nanda Elder, Colleen Drage. Ms Drage spoke with all the students across the school about growing up in Kalbarri as a child and her work out at the National Park with the newly completed ‘Kaju Yatka’. She also shared some local artefacts, bush tucker and history with the students. Over the course of next week, students will complete a variety of activities in classrooms to celebrate Australia’s rich Indigenous history. 

ASSEMBLY 

This weeks assembly is being hosted by the Pre-Primary students. Please come down and support them as they perform their class item in front of the school. 

SCHOOL COUNCIL 

The next school council will be meeting on the 27 November 2020 to support the school in it’s planning for 2021. An email will be coming out to council members shortly.
