Message from Geordie

Dear Families,

I hope you have had a relaxing Wellness Week. There has been a lot of fun here at school with excursions, Kolbe Visits and Senior Sport being a highlight.

This newsletter contains a lot of information so I will keep this one short for my own wellness and in the hope you have time to read all the information below.

Enjoy the weekend!

Geordie Thuijs

Disabled Car Park

A gentle reminder to parents that disabled bays are for people with the appropriate permissions and that even when it rains, we are late or we just want to do a drop and go, they should not be used without the ACROD sign displayed. We have a number of parents and grandparents who rely on these bays and have not been able to use them as other people have parked there. As you can imagine with 450 students, our entry and exit gets busy in the morning and afternoon, however, we do our best to clear traffic as quickly as we can while keeping everyone safe.

Please be mindful of the speed limit in the car parks especially during peak times. Please be aware of the crossing zones and follow staff directions as required.

It is important that we are honest with each other when there is a problem and treat each other with kindness and respect at all times!

Year 1 State Library Excursion

This week our Year 1's went to the State Library on Perth. It was a big adventure traveling on the bus and train - thankyou to the lovely parent helpers who provided 'extra eyes' on this excursion!

Here is what a few of the children had to say:

Holly D - I really loved the excursion because we made fairy tales with puppets.

Isabelle B - I loved the excursion because we read so many books.

Blake W - I really enjoyed making the fairy tale chatter boxes.

Jet S - I loved all of the activities.

Leo M - I loved going on the bus and the train.

Chloe L - I liked the part when we made chatterboxes.

Robyn L - I liked the bus because it was like a bumpy rollercoaster.
