Following the formal media event all the students, staff and community were welcomed to a celebration assembly. There were over 400 people that were severed cake and fruit. The assembly acknowledged the students with certificates whom helped make our new school a safe and diverse community for all.
The grant funding covered large cakes for 400, fruit, bulletin board to post our photos, forks, napkins, trays, coffee for the media event, photo printing and other small items. The event was a success at bringing the school, media, community and volunteers together.
