Last month, former Nedlands Primary School student Premier Colin Barnett presented current students with their Acts of Service certificates, including sisters Chantel and Liviya Chen, who received service badges.

Students who complete more than 100 hours of good deeds receive a special badge, while those who complete 10, 25 or 50 hours receive a bronze, silver or gold certificate.

Included in the good deeds that students have completed are feeding the neighbour’s kookaburras, bringing in the washing for nanna, volunteering to be a participant in a clinical trial examining childhood asthma research and sitting with someone who was by themselves.

Next month, the school will launch a history book commemorating its 100 year anniversary.
