"This year 11 November marks the 98th anniversary of the Armistice which ended the First World War (1914–18). Each year on this day Australians observe one minute’s silence at 11 am, in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts."
In Art this week students have been making poppies of various sizes and media to mark Remembrance Day. The poppies have been used to create a large temporary outdoor artwork.
Last week saw 49 of our intrepid 5/6 students accompanied by teachers and parents head off on our yearly senior school camp to Wombat Corner in Emerald. The group had a fantastic time and spent their days canoeing, walking, doing archery and a number of other activities to be topped off at the end of the camp with a ride on Puffing Billy! We look forward to their camp stories when they join us back at school this week.
We recently held our bi-annual Arts Festival here at Pender's. The festival involves some spectacular displays of visual and performing arts that have been prepared over the last 18 months. Out opening night was a fantastic success with over 300 people turning our on a cold, wet and wintery night to see what talented artists our Pender's students are.
We began with some musical performances lead by Warwick our Music Specialist and Katie, one of our instrumental teachers. Amy, one of our 5/6 teachers, also presented a dance performance prepared by a group of 3-6 students. We then saw the official opening of the gallery in our school library and a new outdoor 3D mural celebrating our school values that has contributions from all of our students.
The evening was also a fantastic social event with a BBQ organised by our hardworking Community event Committee.
Thanks to Clare our fantastic Art teacher and everyone involved and we look forward to our next show in 2018!
