Principal’s Update – October 21st

Dear Parents and Carers

Welcome back to what will be a busy fourth term. The Premier has delayed to possible move to COVID-19 Phase 5 until early November. We will go ahead with the Colour Run but I will wait until later in the term before I make a decision about the Carol by Candlelight. Swimming lessons and the Year 6 Graduation will go ahead.

School Development Day. Parents are reminded that Monday 2nd November will be a School Development Day and students do not need to attend school.

Pre Primary-Year 5 Swimming Lessons. A letter was sent home with the students today with information about the lessons which will take place from 7th-17th December There are nine lessons as the students finish school on Thursday 17th. The lessons will be $60.00 which includes pool entry at Aqua Motion in Wanneroo and bus costs. Please complete the permission slip and return it to school by Monday 30th November.

The Year 6 students will be going to Mullaloo Beach for their lessons in weeks 7 and 8.

Vacation Swimming Lessons. Information on Vac Swim lessons please follow this link: https://www.education.wa.edu.au/vacswim

Champion. Congratulations to Jake Daly who placed first in the Year 6 boys 200m event last Friday 16th at the Primary Champion Schools Track & Field Carnival.

Winners! We are pleased to announce that PP1 and PP2 have won an excursion to the Maylands Road Safety school, this also included the transport cost. 

Mrs Beale(PP2) and Mrs Bate(PP1) entered their class into a Road Safety Awareness Competition to complement their unit on Road Safety in 4th term.  

They were required to submit photos promoting Road Safety.  Both classes also submitted a video. PP1 brainstormed rhyming words and wrote a rap song. 

Calendar. I have updated the Term Calendar on the website. Please note that some events may change due to changes to the COVID-19 restrictions. Please check Updates and Connect for current news.

PAT Testing. All Pre Primary to Year 6 students have completed tests in English and Maths over the last two weeks. We will have the results shortly and will inform parents.

Woodvale Secondary College Soccer Program. WSC have elected to discontinue their soccer program as of the end of 2024.  Next year’s Year 7 intake will be the last.  They anticipate that those children will continue until the end of Year 10 in 2024.  In the meantime, the program will continue as normal with their current staff.

Regards

Neil McCallum
