Gawler students’ success celebrated

TWENTY-FIVE Gawler Primary School students were recognised for their efforts during term two, on Friday.

The awards are presented to students who have worked hard during the term, and aim to encourage children to strive further in their learning.

“This is unique to Gawler Primary School, it is a very special thing that we have done for a number of years,” Gawler Primary School principal David Pitt said.

“It’s something that is highly valued by our school community.”

On Friday, the school’s students and staff also dressed up in pyjamas for the day, helping to raise funds for the year sevens’ end of year graduation.

“Everyone got involved (by dressing up), and staff have done it as well, which is great,” Mr Pitt said.

“(Initiatives like this show) that we, as a whole school, work collaboratively and everyone gets involved.

“We have such a community-minded approach and see that we are collectively responsible for every student.

“We work together with every student, we own their problems, their challenges, their successes.”
