Tatura’s Power of Youth festival to look at climate change
A day of inspirational films, conversation and ideas on climate change is promised at Tatura’s Power of Youth festival next week.
On Wednesday, August 14, foundation students from Tatura Primary School celebrated 100 days of school. Children enjoyed dressing up as 100-year-old people and participating in fun activities. We saw some lovely wigs, glasses, walking sticks, woollen jumpers, long skirts, beads, trousers and hats. The day started off with a parade and parents/carers enjoyed watching happy faces as students and teachers showed off their creative costumes. Students then rotated throughout the day to decorate a ‘100 Days Smarter’ headband, create an old-person collage using modelling clay and participate in play-based activities relating to the number 100. Foundation students enjoyed eating delicious cakes to mark the occasion. A special mention and thank you to Tracy Fitzpatrick for making an amazing 100 Days cake and to Simone Dunne for supplying scrumptious theme-based cupcakes. A big thank you to our foundation families for the effort they put in to organising costumes. It was a terrific day enjoyed by all.
