A big welcome back to our Evatt community.
It has been lovely talking to students and families about their break and it's nice to hear that families are once again able to travel and get away during these times.
We are looking forward to a great term of learning with some exciting things happening. This includes the opening of our new community hub which is near completion. Watch this space!
Today we held an ANZAC ceremony here at Evatt Primary. This was hosted by our school leaders who did a fantastic job. Our students have also been very fortunate to have a wonderful presentation that has been prepared and shared by Evatt parents Carney and Jeremy Elias. Carney is currently working in Kuwait and has shared her thoughts around ANZAC Day and modern day work to enable the freedoms we experience everyday.

Melba Copland Secondary School Arts Academy
Evatt Primary School have been involved in the Melba Copland Secondary School Regional Arts Program – Dance, Music, Singing and Community Musical Programs over the course of the last 9 years since its commencement in 2012.
As the Regional Arts Program continues to build, MCSS are looking at providing an after-school Arts Academy Program which will be available for students in Years 4-6 in our feeder school area. The aim of this program will be to provide students from Evatt Primary School with the opportunity to train in Dancing, Acting, Singing, Cheerleading and Visual Art in a low cost capacity, and would also involve yearly performance and showcase opportunities at Copland Theatre.
Students would attend weekly after-school workshops at MCSS at a cost of $50 per semester for each Arts discipline they choose to participate in. The minimum commitment for this program would be one semester.
If the Arts Academy is of interest to you, please can we ask you to complete a very short (3 question) survey so that we can identify what interest we have in the Arts Academy Program.
