The Easter period brings with it a reminder of the importance of lived Gospel values. As we reflect during the season of Lent, we pray in solidarity for those in our community affected by COVID-19. We have been humbled by the remarkable acts of generosity and kindness in our school community.


Easter is also a time for renewal and hope. As we prepare for the solemnity of Holy Week and the joy of Easter, let us reflect on the strength of our Christian unity.

I wish you and your family every blessing this Easter and may it be a time of renewal as you celebrate together.

To Our Families

Thank you for your amazing support throughout Term One. By standing alongside our teachers and staff you have enabled us to support your child’s learning in the most challenging of times. Your child’s attendance at school underpins their learning, social and emotional development, as well as their physical and mental wellbeing.

I recognise how concerning it has been for many of our families who have faced a COVID-19 diagnosis and understand the stress this may have placed on many households. Thank you for doing the right thing by isolating for the required period of time.

Term Two Guidelines

Guidelines for the start of Term Two were announced by the State Government last week. This was followed up by information from CEWA. Essentially, the operations of the school will stay pretty much the same. Below is a run-down of operations for the beginning of next term:

  • The mask mandate for Year 3 to 6 is still in place. Optional for other year levels.
  • Outdoor drop off and pick up of children with social distancing and mask wearing will still take place.
  • Parents are not able to enter the school buildings or volunteer to assist in classrooms during the school day.
  • Parent meetings with teachers can be requested and held as long as children are not in the classroom.
  • School Advisory Council and P&F meetings are able to proceed on site after school hours.
  • Assemblies will be able to take place for single year groups only. Parents are able to attend.
  • Year levels will be kept separate as much as possible.
  • Year level incursions and excursions can take place with COVID safe measures in place.
  • The ANZAC Ceremony will be conducted by the SRC over the PA system with children in classrooms.
  • The Littlies Lapathon and School Cross-County will take place in year levels only. Parents will be advised of the times and procedures closer to the date.
  • Edudance lessons will take place in the Undercover Area.


We are hoping that all staff get to the end of this term, COVID free, so they can all enjoy a well-deserved rest. Likewise, we hope that all families are able to enjoy some happy, healthy and special time together in the school holidays. If there are any updates, I will keep you informed.

COVID Self Reporting Portal

The Department of Health (WA Health) has brought to my attention that some of our parents have reported a positive COVID-19 RAT result on the school’s COVID-19 Self-Reporting Portal, but have omitted to do so on the WA Health RAT Register, as is required by the WA Government.


As a reminder, if your child has a positive RAT result you need to:

Class of the Week

The Year 6 Student Representative Council would like to recognise the great teaching and learning that is happening in our school. We will be choosing a class and teacher to focus on each week to show this to everyone.


Our Class of the Week this week is YEAR 3.

Year 3’s have been very busy in class. They have busily been building a miniature city out of cardboard boxes for their spheros. They will be programming their spheros to navigate the streets.




Brain Breaks are really important to keep the Year 3’s on task during important learning. Some of their Brain Breaks are: Golden Child on the Basketball Courts, soccer and using the playground equipment.

During Art, Year 3 students have been enjoying making sunflowers. They get to use this image to represent the light of Jesus. Through Art, they also enjoyed sharing in class what their families do together.

Most of the Year 3’s told us that Sport was their favourite subject. When asked why, the answer was a unanimous, ‘because it’s the only thing that is fun!’

Ms Lesque is very proud of her students because of their creativity and problem-solving. She thinks she has the best class. Congratulations Year 3. We loved looking at your work and talking to you.

SRC: Coby, Marlah, Vivienne and Nathan.

Project Compassion Update

Our Project Compassion giving boxes have been full of generous donations. Thank you to all those students who contributed to their class box.


The overall winner of the Project Compassion Chicken Coop Competition is YEAR SIX.


They were not only generous in their giving but creative in raising funds through their pop-up crochet and craft shops.

The competition is over, but donations can be made up until Friday afternoon when boxes will be collected for the final time.


The total raised from our giving boxes and raffle will be announced next term.


Thank you for supporting Caritas with their important work throughout Australia and around the world.
