Year 4 Assembly

Tomorrow morning at 8.50am our Year Four class will present their assembly item in the hall. I know they have been working hard and I am really looking forward to seeing what they come up with. It promises to be a great way to finish Term 2!

Reports

Yesterday, the student reports were made available online to families through SEQTA. These reports contain specific information relating to each individual student’s achievement at this point in time.


I hope you have spent time with your child/children, going through their report, to celebrate the successes and work to be done to achieve even better results.


The teachers here at Queen of Apostles have spent a great deal of time gathering data and writing individualised comments so you have an accurate picture of where each student is at. I would like to thank them for their time and commitment to this task.

NAIDOC Week

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920′s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians.


NAIDOC Week is always held in the first full week of July and for us this is in the school holidays. Therefore, early next Term we will be doing activities in class that celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements. It is also an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.

Keeping Safe Online Talk - Paul Litherland

On Wednesday 10th August at 6.30pm in the library we have been lucky enough to secure the services of Paul Litherland to do Keeping Safe Online presentation for all parents and guardians in our community.


Paul is an ex police officer and will give you tips and insights into how to keep your family safe when accessing the internet and using social networking sites. He is highly regarded and presents to around 280 schools each year.


So I encourage you to register for this free event by using the QR code or link on the poster later in the newsletter so you can be informed on ways to keep your family safe online.


There will be a creche available for those families who require it.

Holidays

Tomorrow afternoon, Term Two will come to a close for our students. There have been many wonderful learning opportunities for all students this term and I have been very impressed with the way they have embraced the challenges that have come their way. I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday.


Please be reminded that Term 3 for students begins on Tuesday 19th July.

Best Wishes

Mark Ryan

As part of this, Catholic Education Western Australia Limited (CEWA) will be hosting the Festival of Words Autocue Pop Up at the State Library in the Perth Cultural Centre. This will run daily between 11.00am and 1.00pm.


CEWA are very excited to offer students from all segments of the education sector, including public, Association of Independent Schools of Western Australia (AISWA) and CEWA schools, an opportunity to experience the Autocue. This is an experimental exercise for all students to practice reading and presentation skills. It is also a preliminary warm up for CEWA students with Rick Ardon in the CEWA Premier’s Autocue Reading Challenge which is being scheduled for a few weeks’ time.


The Department of Education will ticket the event to ensure the two hours are filled with engaged participants. Parents are encouraged to secure a timeslot through the Department of Education Festival of Words online ticketing facility


The Festival of Words will be a fantastic mix of immersive story times, with hands-on activities including the Autocue Challenge hosted by CEWA, Zine workshops, a Bananagram Alley and a TikTok challenge for older students.
