Our new Assistant Principal, Ms Riordan, introduced this new initiative. Mr Pyne's pupils used the opportunity to educate their fellow pupils about Australia, as it was held five days after Australia Day. The children displayed artwork, performed a short drama and sang, as part of their presentation. It was a very enjoyable and informative assembly.
