Report by Tammy Bryant, avps Wakakirri co-ordinator:
AT Wakakirri this year we celebrated the life of former student Max Fatchen, who passed away last year.
We performed our item, “Between the pages: AVPS celebrates our magnificent Max” at the Entertainment Centre on Thursday, August 8, and what a night it was!
We were the second school to perform and by all accounts there were very few dry eyes. Our cast was, in a word, AMAZING!
Their professionalism, organisation, team work and behaviour throughout this journey has been wonderful and resulted in them winning the award for Best School in Public on the night – which was very well deserved.
For one of the areas they were awarded 12++ out of 10!
They were great ambassadors for our school and did AVPS proud.
Not only did they win this special award, but our Wakakirri item also placed 3RD overall in SA in Division 1!
This fantastic result could not have been achieved without the help of my support crew, Mr J, Karen Karklins, Sharyn Sherin, Amy Smith and Keri Watson.
Thank you so much for all that you do to make this happen year after year. You truly are amazing and your help is greatly appreciated.
Also thanks to our leadership team for your continued support year after year, our parents and teachers who helped out in various ways and to those who came to support us on the night. Thank you.
Now to start thinking about our story for 2014…
