A word from the Principal: 17 October

From the Principal:

Welcome back to school! Term 4 is an action packed term with a range of special activities and learning experiences for the students.
These include:

  • An excursion to Kings Park and Scitech
  • Year 4 STEAM challenge at Warwick SHS
  • Life Ed Van
  • A Bunnings workshop
  • Kindergarten outdoor classroom days
  • Lapathon
  • Disco
  • Christmas Concert
  • Year 6 Graduation

A term calendar was emailed to families and was also sent out on the school app. Please check these weekly to see what is happening.

Over the school holidays we had some games painted in front of the teaching blocks. As you can see by these photos the students are having great fun using them. Handball with the older students in particular is a big hit!

These were funded by the P&C, so on behalf of the students I would like to thank the P&C  and the families who assist with the P&C activities. Your wonderful contribution to the school is very much appreciated. Our students are certainly benefiting from your  hard work and generosity.

The next P&C meeting is on this Thursday 18 October at 3.30pm in the staff room.

The school would really like to keep our three/four year old Kookaburras program running next year but we need the assistance of our parents. We have a meeting planned for Monday 29 October at 9am in the Kindy demountable classroom. Maria Heenan from Playgroup WA will be joining us to discuss the 2019 program. If you are interested in coming along please let the front office know.

Last term our school nurse worked with Mr Moser to cover the Health areas of Growth and Development/Puberty with our Year 5 and 6 students. There are reading materials on these subjects available for parents/carers in the front office if you would like to collect them. Finally can I please remind families that it is vital for school planning for 2019 that you advise the school if your child will not be returning in 2019.

Have a great fortnight everyone.

Lyn Dawson
