Principal Weekly Update





EPS will be celebrating NAIDOC week in classrooms when we return from the school holidays in Week 1 of Term 3.

This year’s theme honours the enduring strength and vitality of First Nations culture – with fire a symbol of connection to Country, to each other, and to the rich tapestry of traditions that define Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

NAIDOC Week, which first began in 1975, provides an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth.

Our Foundation students have been learning about people who help us in the wider community and it has been fantastic to have many hardworking people visit our school including our local emergency services.
