Remembrance Day  11.11.2015

Congratulations NWPS for raising $520 to help in the renovation of a small school in Pozieres, France.
Thank you to our captains and prefects for presenting the service so well, and also to those students who assisted with the microphones and speakers and the raising of the flag.  Special thanks to Mrs Voss and our wonderful Arts Alive Choir and to Mr Jim Braid, the excellent piper, for their amazing contribution.

Campaign to Rebuild Historic
French School

AUSTRALIAN schools are being urged to participate in a fundraising initiative that revives one of the most touching gestures after World War I.
To help mark Remembrance Day on November 11, school children across the country will be asked to donate a gold coin to help rebuild a dilapidated school in the village of Pozieres in France, where thousands of Australian troops died in fierce fighting in 1916.
The fundraising campaign mirrors one conducted in the 1920s when Victorian school children collected pennies to rebuild the shattered school in the village of Villers Bretonneux, which Australian soldiers had liberated in 1918.
The project is being organised by the Camp Gallipoli Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation established to educate Australian children about particular moments during World War I.
It has been described by the French Department of Veterans Affairs as the best project from Australia to mark the centenary of World War I.

This will be a simple but very meaningful initiative, Camp Gallipoli Foundation chief executive Chris Fox said.
After the traditional minute's silence on November 11, a hat will be passed around the assembly at each participating school so children can make their contribution.
"We want to reinforce the memory of Australian casualties of the battle, to provide an enduring legacy in the village for local children to have a connection with Australia, and to encourage our children to learn and understand the great sacrifice this village represents," Mr Fox said in a statement.
All participating schools will be acknowledged on a special website and on a plaque at the school in Pozieres.
Building work is scheduled to begin in July next year and be completed around the same time in 2017.
The campaign proposes building seven classrooms, a teachers' common room, a small library, toilets, an assembly hall and some accommodation.
Schools wishing to take part should visit the Camp Gallipoli website for details at
Family Fun Day
Many thanks to our amazing P&C and the Family Fun Day organisers, capably led by Ms Duncan-Nagy, together with all other hard working volunteers for once again organising a fantastic Family Fun Day. The school truly resembled a theme park for the day. It was great to see past, present and future students and their families appreciating the live entertainment, food selection, variety of stalls and rides. Congratulations to all students who entered the various FFD competitions. We are very grateful to our many sponsors. Well done to our school community for coming together on this special day to remember.
Funds raised go to assist our school and students.
It was great to see our Principal, Mr Greg McLaren, Assistant Principal, Mr Matt Pinchbeck, teacher, Mr Damien Vaughan as well as Year 6 students being such good sports at the sponge throwing stall.
