Last weekend we had our school fair and as always it was full of stalls and more rides than ever before.
It was great to see our Mount Hawthorn school community enjoying the day and supporting our school. Everyone had a great time, we also need to look at the time and dedication it takes to organise such a great event.
Thank you to the the Fair Committee brilliantly led by Mrs Sonia Siamos, the P&C, teachers and students for organising class stalls, sponsors, performers who provided us with entertainment and parents for giving up time to help at the stalls and packing up.
All these people played a role and we really need to say a big thank you to everyone for making it happen. All students will enjoy the improvements made with the money raised for our school well into the future.

67 years on and Brownes is still making memories. In 1950 Harold Coppock visited Brownes milk processing plant in North Perth with his MHPS class. Harold remembers the free chocolate milk they sampled. On Saturday, 28 October at the Old School Community Fair, four-year-old Amber Clark was delighted with seeing Moo, the cow and of course sampling the new range of Brownes flavoured milk. Amber is enrolled to start Kindy in 2018 at MHPS.
Thank you to Brownes for bringing Moo to the Fair and for providing free flavour milk and yoghurts to this generation’s school children.
REMEMBRANCE DAY CEREMONY
On Friday, 10 November the school will be holding the annual Remembrance Day Ceremony at 9.00am on the tiger turf.
Students who belong to service groups e.g. scouts, rangers etc are welcome to wear the uniform of their club. Traditionally the purchase of a poppy for this occasion is the school’s Term 4 fundraiser. During next week students are asked to donate a gold coin for the purchase of a poppy. The poppies will be distributed to students on Friday morning prior to the ceremony. Members of the school community are welcome to attend the short ceremony.
IN TERM SWIMMING
Pre-primary to Year 2 students have been attending swimming lessons each day at Beatty Park for the past fortnight.
This week we went to swimming.
We really liked going on the bus!
We have learnt lots of different skills like kicking, over arm and learning how to stay safe around water.
It has been fun getting wet but some of us have been a bit cold!
