On Friday 3 May St James’ held the Official Opening and Dedication of the Senior School (Stage 3) Building. The event was a wonderful success and celebration of the School’s new facilities. It was also a brilliant showcase of student talent. With student guest speakers and musical performances, the SJAS Orange Army was certainly well represented!
The dedication was performed by The Right Reverend Kate Wilmot, Assistant Bishop of Perth, and Honourable Christian Porter MP (Member for Pearce, Minister for Social Services and Federal Attorney-General) who officially declared the building open. After the service, guests were treated to a magnificent morning tea grazing table, prepared by the Year 10 Food Technology students, and a tour of the campus.
We thank the special guests who attended: The Right Reverend Kate Wilmot, The Honourable Christian Porter MP, The Honourable John Quigley MLA (Member for Butler, State Attorney-General and Minister for Commerce), Mayor Tracey Roberts (Mayor of Wanneroo), Mrs Barbara Godwin OAM (Chair of the ASC), the Reverend Peter Laurence OAM (CEO of the ASC), Mrs Keva Crouch (Chair of St James’ Anglican School Council), members of the Anglican Schools Commission and St James’ Anglican School boards, local ASC principals, architects, project managers, builders, parents, staff and of course our amazing students. It was a great day to be part of the Orange Army!
