Wishart State School (WSS) is proud to open its doors once more for the annual WSS Open Day this September.

This primary school has been famous, not only for being the school of choice for various TV hosts and parliamentarians, but also for its academic programs and extra-curricular activities. The school, which has been around for a while, has recently had some new additions, including a new Information Resource Centre, Instrumental rooms, and interactive whiteboards and computers installed in classrooms, just to name a few. Students are always taught to excel, in reference to the school's motto: "Gain by Endeavour". Set in a quiet area of Wishart in a bushland setting, there is plenty of room for students to learn and enjoy themselves, including a heated swimming pool, indoor sports and activity hall, grassed oval, tennis courts, and of course, the kids' favourite - the adventure playground. There are over 500 students currently enrolled from Prep to Year 7.

There are a variety of programs for students, both current and future, to be involved in. The instrumental, choir, and music programs available are vast, and perform in many eisteddfods and are linked to local high schools in the area, especially the esteemed music program at Mansfield State High School. Also, all students participate in the school-wide public speaking and narrative writing competitions. In grades six and seven, students have a choice of learning a Language Other Than English; and grade seven students also participate in the School Leadership Program. Grade 7'ers have the opportunity to purchase their own momento's for Grade 7 before graduating. Additionally, there are a variety of school camps that are held for most grades over the year.

One of the best programs at Wishart State School is their before school care, after school care and vacation care. Not only does it keep kids engaged while waiting for parents, but it also helps kids learn and interact with others, and importantly, keeps them in a safe, supervised and child-friendly environment. After school care provides kids with afternoon meals, activities, games and also homework catch-up; and vacation care provides kids with fun opportunities and team-building activities throughout the school holidays.

So to experience a taste of what Wishart State School has to offer, come along to the this September. There will be a range of other activities on, including teacher demonstrations, student displays, a sausage sizzle, raffles and much more. Don't forget to bring along your little ones, as enrollments for next year can be arranged. All members of the community are invited as well.
