Leadership Mass

On Tuesday we celebrated a wonderful Leadership Mass where our Year 6 students were recognised in front of the community for the roles they will undertake this year. I am really looking forward to working with all the Year 6’s as they play a very important part in the running of the school.

I would like to thank Ms Maloney for her work in organising the Mass and assisting the students on their leadership journey. I would also like to thank the parents for supporting the class during this very important time.

There are a few cases of COVID in the community at the moment. Please look out for any signs and symptoms and, as with any sickness, keep the students home until they are well.

The COVID portal no longer exists so If your child does test positive to COVID please let us know when you report their absence. We also ask that you keep them home until they are well to minimise the spread and keep our school safe and open.

Year 2 Assembly

Next Friday at 8.50am in the hall, the Year 2 class will be showcasing their talents and letting the community know what they have been working on at their assembly. I am looking forward to seeing what they come up with. It promises to be a lot of fun.

Wellness Week

Wellness Week has again been very well received by our community. I hope you have taken the opportunity at home to slow down and spend some valuable family time with no homework. It's a great opportunity to take a mental break and reset for the second half of the term.

Interschool Swimming Carnival

Good luck to all our swimmers competing in the Interschool Swimming carnival next Thursday 9 March at the Fremantle Leisure Centre. I know that you will give a great account of yourselves in the competition.

Parents please aware that the interschool swimmers will leave from school at 8.20am on this day. Thanks to Mr B for his work in organising the team for this event.

Footy Tipping Competition

The P&F are running the Footy Tipping Competition again this year. It was well received last year and very competitive. It helps to create a wonderful community spirit and some good fun banter.

See the poster below in the P&F section for more info on how to join.

Go Blues!
