What's on at HPS
Monday 14 August was the start of Book Week at HPS. The students participated in many Book Week activities including being entertained by some special guests in the library at lunchtime. On Thursday the students dressed up as their favourite book characters and even the teachers got in on the act! For more photos from Book Week, click HERE.
Shrek the Musical Jr!
Shrek the Musical Jr. was performed at Mount Lawley Senior High School's Tricycle Theatre last week. We were lucky to have some of the high school students coordinating the lighting, sound and front of house for us, making it feel very professional. Our students performed a total of four shows, which gave them the valuable experience of performing in front of different audiences. It was wonderful to see their confidence grow, characters develop and comic timing improve over the course of the show. As Mr Ivey pointed out on closing night, the actual performance is just the tip of the iceberg and it represents months of hard work and dedication from all of the students involved. It was a fantastic show and everyone should be very proud!
Pizza with the Principal
On the last day of Term 2, Sofiya was the lucky winner of the Pizza with the Principal competition. Students were eligible to enter the competition if they had a Green Slip (for going 'above and beyond'). Sofiya's class mates were also invited to eat lunch with them.
Also, on the last day of Term 2, the students at HPS participated in Pyjama Day.
Our annual Book Fair was held 29 - 31 May and raised over $7400 which results in more than $2500 worth of new books and resources for the school ! Thanks to Zrinka and her team !
