Parent Information Sessions

Thank you to all of the parents who were able to attend the Parent Information Sessions this week. I hope you found the sessions useful in understanding the operations and procedures of your child’s classroom, as well as got the opportunity to meet the classroom teacher. Thank you to all staff for their time and efforts in planning and running these Information Sessions for our parents.


For any parents who were unable to attend the Parent Information Sessions, please feel free to contact your child’s classroom teacher and make an appointment to meet and discuss the year ahead.

Parent E-Safe Cyber Safety Session

All parents are invited to attend an E-Safe workshop, presented by Kaylene Kerr, from ‘E-Safe Kids’, on Wednesday 15 February, beginning at 6:00pm. Kaylene presented a workshop to parents in 2022, with the feedback being overwhelmingly supportive and useful for parents to gain a knowledge and understanding into the use and risks of the internet by our children.

Swimming Trials

Swimming trials are being held this Friday, 10 February, at the MARC, for students in years 3 to 6. The trials will begin at 9:00am, with each year level completing the trials at different start times during the day. We look forward to watching the competing students try their best in the swimming trials.

Inter House Swimming Carnival

Our Inter House Swimming Carnival is being held on Friday 17 February, for all students in years 3 to 6. This is a fantastic day where the students get to swim and compete for themselves and for their House factions. All parents are welcome to come along and spectate the carnival and cheer the swimmers on.

Carpark Update

We have movement on the development of the planned carpark on the Wickepin Parade side of the school. Temporary fencing has been erected in anticipation the site will be cleared over the next week. I am certainly looking forward to seeing this project completed in order to provide extra parking for families in the school. Further updates will be provided as we progress through this minor build project.


Just a reminder to parents that our school assemblies begin again next week, with our Monday morning assembly taking place online for all classes. Our first Friday morning assembly will be held on Friday 24 February. All Friday morning assemblies will be held in the school hall.

Medical Action Plans

Just a reminder that it is that time of the year again where all documentation needs to be completed and returned to school, especially any medical action plans your child may have. Could I ask that all priority is placed on parents who need to return medical action forms and anaphylaxis management forms and asthma action plans to the school as soon as possible.

Swimming Lessons: Years 3 to 6

Congratulations and well done to all of the students in Years 3 to 6 who participated in the Swimming lessons over the last fortnight. I also thank all of the parents for ensuring these students came to school prepared and organised for the swimming lesson.

Principal's Awards

Over the past week a student has been sent to my office to receive a Principal’s Award for completing some exceptional work. I congratulate Xavier Geary, from Year 5 Gold, for his great work in Mathematics. Well done and keep up the great work!

God Bless,


Daniel Gooch
