Principal’s Update 19th November

Dear Parents and Carers

Colour Run. Congratulations to Bec Harris and the P&C for holding a very successful Colour Run on Friday. It was terrific to see all the students enjoying themselves and getting losts of excercise! I’m sure they were all very tired on Friday night. Many thanks to Bec Harris, Jason Sasche, Jayde McIntosh and Courtney Anderton for all their work in organisng the event. Thank you also to all parents who helped out on the day. I imagine there will be some extra washing days in Woodvale this week. Thank you to the staff for their help in ensuring the event went smoothly and everyone had lots of fun. It’s a wonderful effort in raising over $9,200. Thank you everyone. The prizes will arrive before the end of the term. We will pubish some photos from the Colour Run shortly.

Swimming Lessons. Good luck to the Year 6’s who will have their lessons over the next two weeks at Mullaloo Beach. Information will be sent home shortly for the PP-Year 5 students about their lessons at Aquamotion in Wanneroo.

Carols by Candlelight. Due to COVID-19 restrictions still being in place we will not be holding Carols by Candlelight this year. Instead, each year level will be singing a Christmas Carol which will be recorded and placed on the school website. The P&C will be holding a cake stall on 10th and 11th of December.

Student Councillors and Faction Captains. I was very impressed with the speeches the Year 5’s made for Student Councillor and Factions Captain in 2021. We will announce the students who have been elected shortly and they will be presented with their badges at a short assembly.

Winners! Congratulations to the Pre Primary students who recently won a competition where they produced a video showing road safety message. The prize was an excursion to the Constable Care Safety School. Well done Mrs Bate and Mrs Beale for their great work.

Footy Jumper Design. Congratulations also to Oliver Newham who won the metropolitan area competition for his AFL football jumper design. The prize is the school will be given a set of jumpers featuring Oliver’s design. Oliver will be given a jumper as well.

Year 6 Showcase. Parents are encouraged to view the Year 6 Showcase which is now on the school website. Well done to all the students and to Mr Barber, Miss Keil and Mrs Willis.
