Year 6 Camp Update

Camp 2022

Dear Parents & Caregivers,

As you would be aware, ALL overnight camps have been cancelled for Term 1 in line with the latest health advice from the Chief Health Officer and WA Health Department. Currently, the Year 6 Camp for St Francis of Assisi is scheduled to be held:

Week 1 of Term 2:

April 26th through to April 29th.

With restrictions in place for High Caseload Settings, we have tried to plan ahead to ensure our Year 6's do not miss out on a camp experience for their final year of primary school (as we know this is the one event our children enjoy the most in Year 6 and prepares them for their Year 7 camp).

As a result, we have tentatively booked an alternative camp date:

Monday 24th Oct - Wed 26th Oct

At this stage, there is no indication whether our Term 2, Week 1 camp will be cancelled or postponed due to restrictions. But in the event this occurs, we will then postpone Year 6 camp to the date above 24-26 Oct. As you can imagine, many schools had camps cancelled and booking alternative options was very competitive.

You will notice the camp in October is one day shorter. To make up for this, we are looking at providing an additional excursion for our Year 6's (in addition to a graduation excursion) in Term 4. Therefore, the camp fee of $380 will remain.

Let's hope the restrictions are eased and our Term 2 camp will proceed. However, if there are changes, we will notify parents in advance of the school holidays. We thought it important to notify parents of our alternative camp dates as early as possible.

Should you wish to contact me, I am happy to discuss any of the above. Please either phone the office on 9562 9500 or email

Best wishes

Jason Baker
