National Science Week
A huge thank you to Sue Webber for organising all of the national Science Week activities for the students across the school. From the before school experiments, photography competitions and the science talks in the undercover area, thank you so much for providing these opportunities for our students and nurturing and igniting their curiosity in everything Science.
One Big Voice
One Big Voice was on Friday 18 August, at the Perth Arena. With over 100 students from WPS’ Junior Choir in attendance, this was a joyful performance to connect WPS with the wider community.
Sam E. sang beautiful solos (despite breaking her arm the day before!) and the Wembley PS Junior Choir showed excellent CARES Values – not only being commended for their amazing singing, but also for the excellent behaviour. Well done, Junior Choir!

Rotary Public Speaking Competition 2023
A few weeks ago, two Year 6 Students competed in the Interschool Public Speaking Competition. Tshokiey and Ayanna were selected to represent Wembley in the annual public speaking competition. This competition is for the best two public speakers from each school in the Cambridge district. The two girls did a fabulous job and we are very proud of the effort they put in. Well done, girls!
