Hi Everyone,

Thank you to our Year Four Gang for today’s assembly! This was a whole lot of fun and was enjoyed by all of us. What a beautiful start to the day.

Following the assembly, the whole school 'Narrative Brightpath Immersion' took place. This was a great experience! The way in which our Literacy Team structured the event provides us with many valuable opportunities - to track our student’s writing over the last few years, practise moderating with other teachers, and see the impact that 7 Steps for Writing is having on the quality of the writing produced.

Thanks to everyone who covered off on student absences this week. It aided a lot with the State government audit which took place today. A response to the sms sent by Michele on the day of the absence remains the simplest explanation for record keeping purposes. Far and away most people reply promptly to these which helps so much. Thank you.

We wish our year Six students every success as they engage in the Winter Sports Carnival on Thursday. This is a highly prized competition with children involved from a large number of schools.

Next Friday sees our school cross country for our children in Years Three to Six at Jackadder. This is a very popular event, well supported by your good selves. We look forward to seeing many of you there. Also on Friday, our Pre-Primary children will be attending mass in our parish starting at 9am. You are most welcome to join them, and then stay for coffee. This is such a great start to the day!

Have a great weekend.



Please use the Self Reporting portal to register if your child is positive. It is important that we continue to monitor numbers across the school.

We are fortunate and grateful to have been able to remain open and reasonably normal to date. Classes continue to run well with ‘only’ a few of our staff and children away with the virus at any time. Our events have continued albeit changed at times to meet the conditions we have been faced with. Your support, with unwell adults and children staying well away from school, has been second to none. Thank you very much indeed.


While Friday July 1 is still a while away, we want to acknowledge the support of and give thanks to the P&F for the opportunity of working together to make the last day of term a very special one. It is the first time these events have been combined - fantastic idea! Don’t worry the Kindy Kids won’t be missing out - we have plans for them to get their cupcakes on Thursday.

Last day of term, Friday July 1:

  • Casual Dress

  • 9am - Mass

  • 10am Bake Sale (cupcakes donated by parents and guardians, distribution run by student leaders)

  • 2pm disco (similar plans as for 2020 – discos in gym, Veritas, Undercover area – depending on the age of students from Pre-primary to Year Six) - instead of a night time disco next term.

  • 3pm go home

Cost - $5 per child or $10 per family, covering:

  • Donation to St Vincent De Paul Blanket Appeal ($1 per child)

  • A cupcake from the Cake Stall

  • P&F - Contribution to Graduation, and to other P&F initiatives

The disco replaces the one initially planned for next term, and the bake sale is a different take on the one usually held at the end of the day. Our Year Six Students will be in charge of all the arrangements. It will be a big and excellent day for them – in fact for all of the children.


Every Thursday at around 8:25am. Generally in the veritas garden, and in the Undercover area when it is raining. All welcome.

Well what a brilliant week, with lots happening around the school in some chilly conditions. Running Club is in full swing with the wonderful Mrs Catherall at the helm, helping to prepare our runners in Years 3-6 for next Friday’s Cross Country.

The Year 6’s are also training hard for their Winter Sports Carnival which is next Thursday. Netball, Soccer and Football are in full swing. Special thanks to Ms O’Neill, Ms Passmore, Mr Scutti and Mr D’Aloia for their help with our teams.

I will upload the fixtures and timings for both carnivals on Seesaw so have a look there for all the detailed information about both events.

We could still use some helpers for the Cross Country next Friday if we have any parents that are free I would love to hear from you. Please email, admin@hrs.wa.edu.au and I will get back to you early next week. Thanks in advance.

How fabulous to celebrate W.A. and the Queen’s Jubilee in one weekend! It’s made for a super fun week of princess books and books about our gorgeous home state.

As we approach the end of term 2, a reminder about our lost books policy. If your child has an overdue book at home, please return it before the holidays. If it is lost, please purchase a replacement over the holidays so borrowing can start first day back. Thanks for your support of your school library.

Hoping you all had a lovely long weekend. For all those in years 3-6 who joined in on early morning running club, it was so good to see you all pushing yourselves and having fun. A big shout out & thank you to Mrs Catherall for running this no matter what the weather - Amazing! And thanks to some of our teachers for their efforts in coaching the year 6 footy, soccer and netball teams in preparation for next week's winter carnival.

This week the P&F agreed to assist the school to purchase some more books for junior primary which link in with the Diana Riggs (phonics programme) running at school.

Over the next couple of weeks we will be finalising the bench & table purchases.

Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 21.6.2022 at 6pm either face to face, online or a mix. if you are interested in joining us please email Michele in admin by lunchtime Monday.

An interesting range of Lost Property this week! The table is behind Admin - do check it out. Some items have the names of former students (Byrne, Psaltis) but no new name which makes them hard to return. Please rename things as you get them so our students can return them quickly. Thank you!
