Current Virtue: Commitment
The Virtue for the next assembly Week 8 – 12 September will be Commitment.
Commitment is caring deeply about something or someone. It is the willingness to give your all to a friendship, a task, or something you believe in. It is the ability to make decisions and follow through on them. It is keeping your promises.
Independent Public School
We are pleased to announce that Phoenix Primary School has now been awarded the status of an Independent Public School. This is largely due to the information gathered through the DISA (Diagnostic Inventory of School Alignment) survey and we would like to thank all the students, parents and staff who participated. A special thank you to Janine Paruscio (parent) who made a special presentation to the selection board. This is a great achievement for our school. Would you like to know more?
