The theme for this year’s Book Week is “Reading is my Secret Power” and this certainly came through in the super-powered introduction by Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Spiderman, Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Thor, Leonardo and The Hulk, at our Book Week parade. Our classes took turns on stage, showing us their fantastic costumes and giving us a taste of what their book was about. They would not give away the ending though and left us all enthusiastic to read the books for ourselves!

Special thanks to Mayor Logan Howlett, JP who was our special guest speaker and reflected on his own experiences at a cemetery in France, that is the final resting place for many of our fallen soldiers. The imagery in his story gave us all a sense of how well respected and cared for the area is.
We would also like to thank our other invited guests Mr Phil Mort (former Principal) and Mrs Viv Mort, Mrs Sharyn Silverman (P&C President), Mrs Pat Howlett (City of Cockburn), Mr Malcolm Small (Cockburn RSL), Mr Josh Wilson MP (Member for Fremantle) and Mr Gary Dawson (Community member and Grandparent) for their involvement.
We congratulate the Atwell Primary School Choir for their beautiful singing, the school councillors for their speaking roles and the flag attendants for their important role in the service.
One of the behaviours is “Caring for the School Environment”, which we performed to the Year 4 classes today. Millie and Eliana were littering and Holly told them to pick up their rubbish and they did. The world is in our hands, so don’t be a fool, follow the rules!

The Waste World incursion presented by The National Theatre for Children followed Mayor Matilda who is facing a big problem – the town’s recycling plant has stopped running! It seems that Robo-Ned Jelly, leader of the Jelly Gang has sabotaged the recycling technology and is determined to waste all the resources in town! Luckily Matilda managed to re-program Robo-Ned in time to save the town.
We were fortunate enough to receive 4 Lego We-Do kits as part of the program, these are in addition to the 8 we recieved from last year’s Bee On The Team incursion. Our students love using the Lego We-Do kits to design, build and program their projects.
