Dragons Visit Jervis Bay
The St George Illawarra Dragons were on hand to help celebrate the centenary at Jervis Bay PS on Saturday.
Local Culburra Dolphins juniors Dylan Farrell and Adam Qunilan, alongside Ambassador Shaun Timmins, joined many current and former students, staff and local community members at the schools village fair to mark its 100th birthday.
Jervis Bay PS was first known as Captains Point School and built by the NSW Department of Education but because it was in federal territory the funding came from the Commonwealth.
At its peak there were more than 200 students, the majority of whom were linked to the HMAS Creswell base.
Now 92-percent of students are indigenous and live in the Aboriginal community of Wreck Bay.
There are now five classes, from preschool through to year 6 and the school continues to have strong ties to the Navy base.
The Dragons have been in partnership with Jervis Bay School for a number of years now and are very proud of this association.
“Once again can I thank Dragons Community for their support of our 100 year celebration," said Bob Pastor, Principal, Jervis Bay PS.
"As always your team did a fantastic job, you are a most valued and respected partner of this school”
