Education Week is a state-wide, annual event to celebrate NSW public education.
The aim of the celebration next week from 5-9 August will be to communicate the achievements of public schools, their students and the value of public education.
The theme this year is ‘Every Student, Every Voice’. It is a celebration of student empowerment and how the NSW public education system gives students the skills they need in order to have and express a voice during their own educational journey and as engaged global citizens.
The key messages for this year’s theme are authentic participation, partners in learning, respectful relationships, connecting communities, and change makers.
Parkes Public School will celebrate the week with an Open Day on Wednesday, 7th August with open classrooms on the infants’ side from 11:30am to 12:15pm, and on the primary side from 12:15pm to 1pm. There will be a picnic lunch from 1 to 1:45pm in the Infants playground.
The day concludes with the Education Week Showcase Assembly featuring performances by the senior choir, cultural dance group and the senior band from 2 to 3pm.
