A Word from the Principal: 28 Nov

From the Principal:

I would like to inform the school community that as part of our commitment to being a sustainable and waste free school your child’s school report will now be sent electronically to you by email. If you require a hard copy then please let the office know.  Reports will be emailed to you on Wednesday 12 December.

We are currently working on class lists for 2019. We currently have 202 students enrolled for 2019. With increasing numbers in the early years there is going to be a need for split year level classes throughout the school. This situation is not new to this school. I would like to emphasise that there is no difference between split or straight year level classes. There are students of all abilities in either and teachers differentiate the curriculum for students when it is required. There are a number of factors that are taken into account such as academic ability, the ability to be able to work independently and social/emotional needs. Your child will be placed in the class that the teachers think will be the most beneficial for each individual student. Class lists will be placed on the Administration window at 2.30pm on the last day of school.

Recently one of our students demonstrated the values that we try to instill in our students at East Hamersley Primary School. Of his own volition, Shea decided that he would make some cupcakes and lemonade to sell at his family’s garage sale to raise money for Guide Dogs WA..

Last week he got to meet two of their
ambassador dogs on Wednesday when he donated the $31.40 he had raised money. Shea, we congratulate you for  demonstrating the values of consideration, commitment and enthusiasm!

On Friday 16 November the school and P&C held its annual Lapathon. Students were encouraged to wear bright clothes.

Students and parents enjoyed running around the oval and having a cold icy pole at the end.

A huge thank you to the students and their families for getting friends and relatives to sponsor them. Your hard work has so resulted in $2400 being raised with more money still to be counted!. The highest fundraiser in each year level will receive a prize at the Kindy assembly on Friday.

Last Monday Mrs McDonald and I, accompanied our school captains Bronte and Kaitlyn to Parliament House. Mr David Michael MLA for Balcatta had invited us along with some other schools in his constituency to join him for lunch. We were very proud of the way Bronte and Kaitlyn conducted themselves on behalf of our school.

The last two weeks of term are very busy with swimming lessons, Christmas Concert and the Year 6 Graduation.  I look forward to seeing you all at either or both of these events.
