African Cultural Day

Last Friday was African Cultural Day at HWPS.  Our Junior School Council organised the day to raise funds for our sponsor child, Doris.

Doris lives in Ghana, Africa. She has to walk 10 minutes every morning just to get water for her family before walking to school.

Thank you for showing your support by donating gold coins to help with Doris’ education.

Level 3 Hooptime Champions

A huge congratulations to the two Level 3 Basketball Teams, Hawthorn West Hotshots and Hawthorn West Heat, winning places in the Victorian State Finals.

Congratulations to all players for their skilful play and good sportsmanship.

Big thanks to Sam and the parent coaches and supporters.


This week¬†all HWPS students¬†experienced what it’s going to be like in the next grade level.¬†¬†They were¬†really excited going to different classrooms and meeting new kids and teachers.¬† Students were able to ask questions about what it will be like in a different grade next year.

Some questions were:

  • How much homework do you get?
  • What’s interschool sport like?
  • Can you sit with anyone you like?
  • What rewards do you have?
  • Do you get to use the computers much?

What questions do you have about going to a new class? Post a comment on the blog.

The teachers are working really hard to ensure the transition process is fun, informative and comfortable for all students.  There will be two more sessions before the students meet their 2014 teachers and classmates on Tuesday December 17.
