Special Events

Meet and Greet Night

Meet and Greet Night is an informal event held at the beginning of each year to enable the school community to come together, get further acquainted and learn more about our learning programs. Students enjoy taking family members around the school to meet staff and members of the Governing Council and Parent Coordinating Committee (PCC). The evening begins with visits to classrooms and other areas of the school followed by a BBQ.

Harmony Day 21st March

Harmony Day is a day which promotes cultural respect for everyone, from the traditional owners of the land to those who have come here from countries around the world. It is a day when we celebrate our diversity as well as connect with each other and share things we all have in common. Each year, on or around Harmony Day, we begin the day with a school community breakfast followed by special activities throughout the day. At the end of the school day we join together for a Harmony Day Assembly and welcome families to attend.

End Of Year Carols

At the end of the year, all Balaklava Primary School students have the opportunity to participate in the End of the Year Carols which are held on our oval. Members of the Balaklava Community are warmly welcomed to this event.
