Friday fun day at Kendenup PS

FRIDAY is the favourite day of the week for most people but especially now for the students of Kendenup Primary School.

Principal Heather Fergie recently began a school club program which sees the 72 kindergarten to Year 6 students divided up randomly each Friday afternoon to learn new skills and participate in various activities.

When the Weekender joined in the club program last week, the student excitement in the air was infectious.

From learning how to create a beaded necklace, to cooking muesli, to learning more about papier mache, tennis and robotics, each student eagerly awaited for their name to be called out to learn which club activity they would be participating in.

Ms Fergie said the idea behind Friday Clubs was to get the community involved in the school.

“Everyone has been so supportive and the response from students and parents has been absolutely amazing,” she said.

“I really want the kids to see adults doing these skills, so they can model the skills to the students.”

Other activities on offer included gardening, learning about the bush, gymnastics, knitting, making slime, clay making, chess and painting a mural.
