Athletics Carnival

What an amazing day we had for our Athletics Carnival. I was so proud of the way in which all students gave their best and cheered on all their friends. It was wonderful to see so many families in attendance sharing in this special day. A big thank you firstly goes to Mr B for the exceptional organisation and coordination of the day and for all his extra efforts put into preparing the students. As Mr B says, this day works so well because we have such an amazing staff who contribute to the big day. A special mention to the parent volunteers who helped set up, pack away and assist with the carnival. Well done to the staff who treated parents and students with a flash mob dance!


Thank you to the Lawrence family who organised the sausages for the school carnival. Through their connections, Borrello Beef kindly donated the sausages which were so good that they sold out!


Catholic Education WA Performing Arts Festival

As another year of the Catholic Education Performing Arts ends, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Vanessa Reedman for teaching and coordinating all our students in these events. Vanessa has made sure we have a quality musical program. Well done as well to our instrumental teachers and to Rob for his amazing work with our school band. Thank you to staff and parents for your ongoing support and to those who could make any of the events to support our students. Most importantly well done to all our very talented students who through their ongoing hard work performed so well.


Parent/Teacher communication

When parents are contacting teachers, they are asked to please use the following:

  • School Phone 6278 9500
  • Teacher School email
  • Class SEESAW

Please allow at least 24 hrs for a reply as the teacher’s main focus is working with students. Any emails sent after 3pm on a Friday will be replied to the following Monday.


Canteen Menu

You will find the Term 4 Canteen Menu later in this newsletter. We have increased prices which have not been adjusted for the past 5 years. We have been very conservative with the increases and have only increased most items by 50c, leaving some cheaper options untouched. You will also notice that some of the poor selling items have been removed.


End of term

As we come to the end of Term 3, it is important to remember that students are tired but still have three full days of learning. By setting high expectations we are able to encourage successful learners. Term Three concludes next Wednesday 21st September and Term Four commences on Monday 10th October.


God Bless
