On Friday the 23rd of March the Year 6 students (along with some Year 5’s) participated in the Summer Lightning Carnival. Our students competed in basketball, cricket, teeball and volleyball against Aubin Grove Primary, Jandakot Primary and Harmony Primary. Our students played with respect, dedication and a fantastic team spirit that allowed us to win both divisions undefeated in basketball and teeball. Overall, we placed second behind Harmony, but our students stood out with their behaviour and ability. We want to thank the students for their wonderful attendance at training sessions as this assisted their performance on the day. A special mention and thank you to our parent helpers who helped manage our teams at the carnival.

On Tuesday the 20th of March, fifty five, year 4, 5 and 6 students from our school choir performed at Government House at the Commonwealth Youth Harmony Day. The students sang two songs and delighted the Governor of Western Australia, Her Excellency the Honourable Kerry Sanderson AC with their talent. There were three other extraordinary items on the program, Penrhos String Orchestra, Hampton Senior High School Gifted and Talented Dance students and Scotch College Pipe Band, who will be playing at the 2018 Edinburgh Tattoo.
Atwell Primary School Choir students made us all proud. They were focused, well behaved and coped so professionally with the venue and the situation. A great credit to all the hard work Mrs Cook has achieved with the choir over the years and a joy for me to work with.
Congratulations Atwell Choir, this is just the beginning of the year. Lots more “shimmy’s” to come!
Grateful thanks to all staff for their support.

To start the term off, every student in Year 1-6 created a monochromatic (one colour) artwork that represents themselves. These mini artworks have now been joined together in the library to form a giant rainbow!
This term in the art room, we are looking at the bold and colourful art movement Pop Art! The Pop Art movement began in the 1950’s and is a style of art based on simple, bold images of everyday items, such as soup cans, painted in bright colours. Each class will explore various Pop Artists who created pictures of consumer labels, photos of celebrities, comic strips and much more! Our key focus artists are: Richard Hamilton, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Claus Oldenberg. Take a look at the colourful creations we are currently working on.
