Children walk over to Goodwood oval for this event where they are involved in Tabloid and competitive events. Many family members and friends join us for the day. Families are encouraged to help out in a range of ways during the day. Year 6's take on the responsibility of team captains. The team colours are lime green, purple, orange and aqua. Our focus is on all students participating and enjoying themselves. Our Governing Council and parents provide food and refreshments throughout the event. All in all it is a very positive community event.
Australia celebrates Harmony Day every year on March 21. It is a national day that provides us with an opportunity to celebrate our successes as a culturally diverse society, re-commit ourselves to harmony and say "no" to racism. Harmony Day is celebrated nationally, by all kinds of organisations and groups. At Goodwood Primary School all students are involved in activities that celebrate Harmony Day.
Each year during Term 3 Book Week is celebrated in all school libraries and is one of the most exciting weeks of the year. At Goodwood students look forward to participating in a variety of planned activities, working with their buddy classes for art and dressing up for the Book Week Parade in which Students and teachers are invited to get creative and come to school dressed up as one of their favourite book characters or something to compliment the year's theme.
