WE Day festival 2018

WE Day festival

Students from both Year 4 and Year 5 had the opportunity to attend the worldwide WE Day festival – a festival that inspires children to create positivity in their school, community, country and worldwide! We listened to several inspirational people describe their hardships and challenges they have faced during life and how they were able to overcome these obstacles. It was a once in a lifetime experience and we have been inspired to start changing the world ourselves. No matter how small or alone you think you are, when we change our attitudes from ‘me’ to ‘we’ nothing is impossible.
