North Parmelia Primary School staff and students have celebrated their 50th anniversary in style by participating in the Walk to School event, followed by a breakfast.

The event was hosted by school leaders, P & C members and school staff. About 100 community members walked from the Parmelia Dog Park to school.

Upon arrival, everyone was able to enjoy a breakfast including egg and bacon rolls, pancakes, coffee and tea.

Breakfast Club was also operating at the same time, under the supervision of staff volunteers. Breakfast Club menu items included cereal, fruit, toast, porridge, beans and spaghetti, sponsored by Foodbank WA.

Junior primary teacher Toni Bennett said the community participation was outstanding and the students commenced their day “with a hearty breakfast.”

The school’s 50th year anniversary celebrations will culminate with a festival at the school grounds on November 27.

Ms Bennett said the school was looking forward to past, present and community members and friends to attending this special day of celebration.

A significant ceremony will also mark the occasion with the opening of the school’s “Yarning Circle”.
