Did you know that when Woodend Primary School was first built way back in 1995, we planted a beautiful Rose Garden out the front?

Over the years we have enjoyed watching the roses bloom and grow from tiny plants into mature rose bushes.

On Wednesday at our first assembly for the year, we officially welcome our newest members of Woodend Primary School Community … our Reception students from Rooms 3, 18, 22 and 23.

We wish these new students who are just 4 and 5 years of age, every success in their future journey of learning at Woodend.

As a special welcome for the Receptions, they were each presented with a rose by our eldest members of Woodend, the Year 6/7’s.  We hope that the Reception children continue to bloom and grow just like our beautiful roses in the Rose Garden.

We also thank Mrs MacFarlane’s Year 6/7 and Mrs Sheppard’s Year 3/4 class for helping to organise the ceremony.
