I know that for many it was a great opportunity to catch up and chat about their past days spent at Dalmain Primary School. Mr Peter Sweetman, the founda"on principal, spoke very fondly about the early Dalmain days outlining some of the special events that occurred. One in par"cular concerns the ‘Dalmain’ tree which is located behind the early childhood block up on the hill. This tree was the mee"ng place each morning for students and staﬀ as they boarded buses heading oﬀ to other local schools as Dalmain s"ll wasn’t quite ready. This tree features as part of our school logo as a result. Slide shows provided a great way for the audience to see just how much our school as changed and evolved since those very early days. Former students Steven Archibald and Jessica Laden also addressed the assembly providing a perspec"ve from a student’s point of view. Both were very grateful for the experiences and wonderful "mes that they had at Dalmain Primary School. Students from TA5 and TA6 gave us all something to think about with fashion from the nine"es and the prices of various products including housing in 1990 and today. Fashion has most certainly changed and so have prices! Once again our school choir, led by Ms Pinakis, sang beau"fully adding to the occasion. At the conclusion of the assembly everyone was invited to the library for some delicious morning tea and a chance to peruse the memorabilia put out on display. All present then joined in to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Dalmain Primary School as the 25th Anniversary cake was cut by all four principals over this period of "me. This included Peter Sweetman, Vic Richards, Jim Bray and me. A number of aendees also took up the opportunity to visit classrooms and speak to students and staﬀ. All in all it was a terriﬁc morning full of emo"on and nostalgia. A tremendous amount of work has been put in by a number of people, including students, parents and staﬀ, to ensure that today was a great success. There are so many of you who contributed in so many diﬀerent ways that it would be almost impossible to list. So thank you to everyone who assisted and contributed towards our anniversary celebra"on. Connued on Page 2 PARENT-TEACHER INTERVIEWS It was pleasing to see the majority of parents taking up the opportunity of mee"ng with their child’s class teacher on Tuesday. I certainly hope that parents were able to gain some further insight into how their child has started the 2015 school year and some ideas and strategies to further assist them in their learning journey. I would also like to thank all classroom teachers for their prepara"on and professionalism. The process is a taxing one with so many interviews in the one aKernoon. However all teachers see and value this process and the opportunity to update parents on their child’s progress. P&C EASTER RAFFLE Thank you to all parents and community members who donated towards this raﬄe. Over forty prizes were drawn on Tuesday aKernoon. Thank you for suppor"ng this P&C ini"a"ve. ANZAC SERVICE (Thursday 23rd April) I would like to draw parents and community members aen"on to the scheduling of our school ANZAC service at 9:00am Thursday 23 April in the school quadrangle area. Being the 100th Anniversary, this is an especially signiﬁcant occasion. As such it would be wonderful to have a large turnout of parents and community members join us. The service will be followed by a cuppa and Anzac biscuit for parents and community members in the staﬀroom. TERM TWO Students will commence term two on Tuesday 21 April. Staﬀ will be involved in mee"ngs as part of our School Development Day on Monday 20 April. I would like to wish everyone a happy and safe Easter and term break.
