Prayer to Christ the King
Lord our God,
You alone are the Most Holy King and Ruler of all nations.
We pray to You, Lord, in the great expectation of receiving from You, O Divine King, mercy, peace, justice and all good things.
Protect, O Lord our families and the land of our birth.
Guard us, we pray, Most Faithful One.
Protect us from our enemies and from Your Just Judgment.
Forgive us, O Sovereign King, our sins against you.
Jesus, You are the King of Mercy.
We have deserved Your Just Judgment.
Have mercy on us, Lord, and forgive us.
We trust in Your Great Mercy.
O most awe-inspiring King, we bow before You and pray;
May Your Reign, Your Kingdom, be recognised on earth.

Colour Explosion – 25th November
What a fantastic fundraiser the P&F Colour Explosion has proven to be. At last count we have raised over $10 000 which is a wonderful effort from our community. We hope the weather next Friday is perfect for the colour explosion and getting wet.
Parents can you make sure that the children have everything they need including a white t-shirt and old runners which you don’t mind getting wet and colourful. I’m looking forward to a fun filled afternoon!

It is still vitally important that parents and caregivers inform the school if their child tests positive for COVID-19.
Parents and caregivers can inform the school of their child’s positive or negative COVID result via this LINK - https://cewa-collections.powerappsportals.com/COVID-19-Self-Reporting-Form/
The information will go directly to me.
If a positive result is recorded via a RAT test it must also be registered on the WA Health RAT register website -
Please do not underestimate the importance of informing us of a positive COVID case. Your actions will ensure the risk to others is minimised and that we do our very best to limit the spread of the virus across our community.
During Term 3, some students from Years 3 – 6 took up the challenge and participated in the ICAS Assessments.
ICAS is an International Assessment that is delivered in 41 countries to approximately 10 million students. This International competition is an opportunity for students to explore their strengths and passions in Spelling, English, Writing, Mathematics and Science, and pit their academic talent against students of the same age.
We had approximately 25 students from Years 3-6 participate in the competitions. It was wonderful that these students were willing to participate and stretch their applied knowledge and problem-solving skills to the limit. Congratulations to all the students who took up the challenge.
We would like to acknowledge the students who received the following certificates:
