At Narre Warren North Primary School we hold our assemblies each fortnight on Friday mornings.
Assemblies are facilitated by our School Captains.
Assemblies provide us the opportunity to:
- Provide information to our school community about school programs and events
- Have students share their learning experiences
- Present Star of the Week and Aussie of the Month awards
- Announce our social skills winners for the week
- Award the House Cup to the winning House for the week
- Promote fundraising events – for the school and various charities
- Celebrate achievements
- Announce Principal and Assistant Principal awards
Four Houses operate within the school and students are assigned to one of the houses when they join the school community.
In recent years, it was decided that the houses should be renamed and students undertook an investigation of four pioneering families of Narre Warren North, which became the new names for our houses. In fact, some of our current students are descendents of these locally famous families.
Students are awarded House Points for a wide variety of activities (for example sporting achievements, community involvement, positive behaviours, completing homework, etc.) and the house cup is presented on a weekly basis at assembly. A winner is also awarded at the end of each term.
During Term 4, Narre Warren North Primary School holds its annual Show Day. The event provides a day of fun and enjoyment for students as well as the broader school community. With items for sale, food and drink treats, performances, games, competitions and our very own Side Show Alley, there really is something for everyone.
Students in the senior school are actively involved in the planning, organisation and operation of the day, while every class in the school is responsible for a stall or activity.
The day raises important funds for the school, to help improve facilities and purchase resources. The Grade 6 students operate stalls that raise money to help fund their end of year graduation.
Show Day for 2015 will be on Friday 6th November.
A qualified First Aid officer operates in our Sick Bay during recess and lunch each day.
