JOONDALUP Primary School and its education support centre celebrated their home state all last week in honour of WA Day.

Acting associate principal Stacey Young said the week-long celebration included creating a map of things students love about WA, making bookmarks with artwork from the school’s Aboriginal liaison officer and a WA-themed assembly.

“On Thursday the students also dressed in WA-themed clothes such as sporting teams, state colours or olden day clothes,” she said.

“They then participated in a series of tabloid games on the school oval to the tunes of WA artists.
