Rebecca Clarke | Principal

Dear parent and caregivers,


This week our Pre-Primary students aged a lot and came to school on Wednesday to celebrate 100 days in Pre-Primary! They looked truly amazing and from all accounts had a great day! Thank you to Mrs Passera and Mrs Hardie for making this such a magnificent day for our students. Also, well done to our parents and caregivers for getting their children to school ‘looking old’!


Good luck to Mrs Clarkson and our Year 2 students who will be participating in the CEWA Performing Arts Festival, ‘Spirit of the Arts’, on Tuesday. The students will be showcasing their dancing skills in the Christian Dance section of the festival. I cannot wait to see their performance on stage.


Thank you to all our families for your ongoing support as Covid still manages to impact school life. A reminder that mask wearing, and hand sanitising are effective measures against Covid. Additionally, if your child is unwell with a cold or flu, please keep them home until they are well enough to come back to school.


Finally, a reminder that if you are using Kiss and Drive for drop-off and pick-up, please do not get out of your car to collect your child. If your child needs help with seatbelts, I encourage you to park in the carpark so that this can be done safely. Please be patient if you are using Kiss and Drive.


Wishing you all a lovely weekend.


God bless


Rebecca Clarke

Principal
