Remembrance Day 2018

Remembrance Day 2018

November 11, 2018 marks the centenary of the end of World War I, known as the Armistice. At Spearwood Primary we learnt about the history of Remembrance Day and the meaning behind the red poppies we wear. In the library we made more than 100 poppies to pin up to mark the 100 years since the Armistice was signed. For a small school like Spearwood this is a big achievement.  Lots of classes read the book In Flanders Fields by Norman Jorgensen and thought about the peace that came at the end of four years of brutal war. Room 16 also wrote some beautiful acrostic poems about Remembrance Day which they have put up outside their class.

Thank you everyone who helped bring this project to life. Thank you especially to Room 14 who did an amazing job helping the little Pre-Primaries make theirs!

WAPOL – Pipe Band

WAPOL – Pipe Band

Last week Spearwood Primary School had a special visit from the West Australian Police Pipe Band.  At 10am students sat expectantly as the band marched into the undercover area playing their bagpipes and drums. We listened to them some fast and slow songs. The drummer was able to drum very quickly. During the performance some of the teachers got to do the Hokey Pokey. At the end the band members took their instruments to the classes and talked about their instruments and their special uniform kilt and sporran.

Lap-a-thon

Lap-a-thon

On Wednesday 31 October the P&C organised a Lap-a-thon for fundraising. Students walked, jogged and ran their way around the oval on a lovely sunny Spring afternoon and were rewarded at the end with a deliciously, frozen treat.
