Congratulations Daniel

In Term Two the Year 3 and 4 classes entered the Therapy Focus Art Competition.  

Children were asked to read the text from book 'Ben Tries To Fly', and illustrate a page of their choice.  Over 4000 children entered from all over Western Australia, and Aarav Paul and Daniel Tesfaye were chosen in the top 100.  

At the beginning of Term 3 we received the exciting news that Daniel Tesfaye from Year 3 was chosen as a winner and would have his illustration published in the book.  On Thursday the 24th of August he was awarded his prize at the unveiling of the book, and the winners and their illustrations will be published in the community newspaper soon. Congratulations Daniel on promoting greater understanding, acceptance and inclusion of children with special needs in our community.



Best wishes!
