Back to school ready in 2023
25 Jan 2023
We know that the start of the school year can be both an exciting but demanding time for students and their parents. We've put together...
27 May-03 June
National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. Reconciliation Week is 27 May to 3 June every year. During this time students, staff commemorated two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey – the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision. They read Indigenous stories, investigate the local Dahrug and Garingai languages and had yarns about the significance of the week but also paying respects to past and present and future Traditional Indigenous Custodians. If you would like to know more see Our reconciliation action plan from the Department of Education or alternatively the Reconciliation Australia website.
Class teachers will distribute information closer to the date. Each grade/stage has slightly different celebrations planned so please wait for further information from teachers or check Sentral closer to the date. Students wear mufti (no school uniform) with closed shoes, please bring a hat and drink bottle.
The last 15-20mins of the very last day is a special time, especially for those who say goodbye to APS. The whole school forms a guard of honor, where we 'clap out' the leavers and send them on their way with best wishes and hopes for their futures.
