Ms Fiona, Jahlile and Florrenza attended the Tidy Towns Awards in Perth on Friday 27 November. The event was just one of many experiences over the three day excursion.
Tidy Town Awards
Getting ready for the Awards - before and after
At the Awards
Meeting the Governor of WA and receiving a Governors coin
I am so proud of our students. They spoke so well in front of a large crowd and every one was so impressed with their behaviour and composure.
A message from Tidy Towns
Thank you for attending the Awards – it was very special to have Jahlile and Florrenza join us, they did a fantastic job of speaking. For me the day was caught in the photo of the coin. The Governor giving coins to them without any fanfare sums up actions of those we celebrated at the event, community members being recognised for their quite actions. How wonderful. I know this will have a transformative effect on their lives, they will always remember that day.

We had to go on the ferry! The zoo was shut but we still went to have a look where it was. Then we caught the ferry back just because we can!
Exploring Perth City
Tennis with Yalgoo. A fabulous experience as always with the lovely staff and students there and the amazing guys from Tennis West, Geraldton. Thank you so much!
We all enjoyed cooling off at the water park. thank you Yalgoo Shire!
Walga Rock had some amazing rock art. It was facinating to see.
Dalgaranga Meteorite Crater
The Cue CRC and Discovery Centre had so many olden day things to look at, artifacts and amazing rocks. The students and staff were fascinated!
Walking around Cue we found a lot of interesting places.
We had fun with the Cue staff and students and Pastor Geoff!
Our visit and over night stays at Cue Primary School was amazing! Thank you so much to the staff and students at Yalgoo PS and Cue PS for having us. It was a wonderful experience and thank you for joining us in our friendship focus activities. We hope you can come and visit us next year!
Please join us for an introduction to the new bushfire planning tool developed for the 2020/21 season which was launched by the Commissioner and Minister on 29th November.
We would like to help as many people as possible complete their bushfire plan in the coming season.
For those that aren’t aware, DFES Media have been working hard to develop a new MYBUSHFIREPLAN platform which will replace Fire Chat. This improved version is easier for community to use, and helps to better walk them through the planning process, with the tangible outcome of a printable plan.
Mybushfireplan is a mobile-responsive website and companion app designed to inform, challenge and empower Western Australians to create better bushfire plans. It balances simplicity and intuitiveness with the detail required to ensure robust plans. Mybushfireplan is evidence based and developed locally by the Department of Fire and Emergency Services for WA.
Pia Wadjarri RCS paid homage to past and present students [as at 2018] and their Elders by capturing what it is like to live on country and learn language, and recording this via an augmented reality book.
What does augmented reality mean? It is a process of videos that are paired to images that, by scanning with the Academy Live app, will come alive.
Interviews were recorded with Elder Lenny Merry along with Lawrence Merry and family.
There were limited editions printed however there are a few books still available for sale at $40.00 per book.
