St Andrew’s celebrates 20 years in Clarkson

26 September 2017

Students, staff, families and guests commemorated the 20th anniversary of St Andrew’s Catholic Primary School in Clarkson recently with a full day of celebrations.

The day commenced with a Mass in St Andrew’s Catholic Church, attended by CEWA Executive Director Dr Tim McDonald and the school’s first two Principals, Mrs Margaret Sweetman and Mrs Eileen Climo. Students participated in the entry procession, and contributed musical and liturgical dance.

Following mass, a bagpiper from the WA Police Pipe Band spoke to students about St Andrew, patron saint of Scotland, and the Scottish origins of bagpipes, while providing plenty of entertainment and laughs along with his bagpipes performance.

The Wadumbah Noongar Aboriginal Dance Group performed during the afternoon, with celebrations carrying through into the annual open evening, and incorporating the school’s inaugural art show, a display of historical photos and memorabilia from the school’s time capsule, as well as the annual book fair.

The anniversary celebrations were also chosen to officially launch the new nature play area, a gift to the school from the board and Parents and Friends association.
