Another bumper term for the PFA at SPW.

Mum’s Day Out Day to Remember

Beautiful Autumn weather greeted the 100 mums (and the odd grandma) who met at SPW in mid-May to make the coach trip for a Mum’s Day Out to remember. The four-course lunch at Golding Winery in the picturesque Adelaide Hills was truly delicious. The wine and conversation flowed smoothly, as attendees enjoyed live acoustic music from Sophie.  It was a great way for old and new friends to come together and enjoy each other’s company. Special thanks to Kate Hobart for coordinating this memorable event.

Guest Speaker Night with Mark LeMessrier

The PFA held its first Speaker Night this term and along with the school welcomed Mark Le Messurier to present to the parent body sharing his insights into the adolescent brain. From the age of 10 the human brain undertakes significant changes as children develop into young adults. It can be a puzzle for many parents and Mark, a teacher, counsellor, published author and winner of Australian National Excellence in Teaching Award outlined how these changes affect all aspects of our children’s lives and how we as parents can assist them navigate through this critical stage.

Bouncing at the Lock-In

The students weren’t forgotten this term, with another sold-out SPW Lock-In at Bounce Inc. held in Week 7. The doors were locked, the music was pumping and the kids truly bounced to their hearts content exhausting themselves and relishing the time with their friends. Feedback from a parent attending expressed how lovely it was to see all the different year levels enjoying themselves together.

As we head into the second half of the year, planning is already well underway for our traditional Fathers’ Day Breakfast, another speaker night, a parent night out and a major raffle where families will have the chance to win an amazing family holiday. View the PFA events and meeting dates here.

 Thanks to all for continuing to support the SPW PFA and our efforts in building our fantastic school community.
