Faction Athletics Carnival

Our beautiful Western Australian weather set the scene for a very successful Faction Carnival last Friday.
The focus of the carnival was participation, belonging (teamwork and cooperation), possibilities (trying your best) and enjoyment. Positive feedback was received from staff and parents about the exemplary teamwork, encouragement and behaviour displayed by our students.

Special thanks to our Physical Education Teacher and Athletics Carnival Coordinator, Elizabeth Burrows, ably supported by Dean Hodgson.  Their preparation resulted in a wonderful carnival that ran smoothly and to time. Congratulations to all the students for their effort and commitment and a special congratulations to our champions and runners up.

Thank you to our P&C and parents for who turned up to cheer the students on, it was fantastic to have so many families back on site this year. A special thanks to those parents who came early and left late to assist staff with setting up the oval on the day. Your help is greatly appreciated. We now look forward to the interschool carnival for selected students in Years 3-6 which will be held on Wednesday 15th September at the Bob Hawke Oval in Subiaco.

Tabloid Games  PP – Year 2 – Friday, 10th September – following assembly

PP, Year 1 and Year 2 classes will participate in a Tabloid morning scheduled for Friday 10th September (after assembly) until recess 10.25am.
The intent of the morning is to engage children in physical activities through a positive social experience, promoting participation and enjoyment.

Students will be grouped in year group and faction and move through a series of activities that encourage skill development, problem solving, fitness, perseverance and co-operation using normal and modified equipment.  Year 6 students will support the PP-Year 2 classes as they move through the activities as part of their leadership experiences.

Students in PP- Year 2  are encouraged to wear their faction shirt on Friday.
PP-Year 2 parents and caregivers are welcome to enjoy morning recess with their child on the lower oval. A normal routine will be in place for all other students.

If the Tabloid morning needs to rescheduled due to poor weather, we will notify parents on Thursday 9th September before 3.00pm.
We look forward to a fun filled morning!

Floreat Beach Walk 3H, 3D and Leaders

Unfortunately, the ‘Adopt a Group’ organisation that were attending the beach excursion with us has requested that the excursion be postponed until 19th October.  This is due to a poor weather forecast on Thursday.
Parent/guardian permission has been mostly been received for this excursion. This permission will apply for the rescheduled time unless the school is otherwise advised.

Year 6 Fair

The Year 6 fair will be held on Thursday the 23 September (Week 10).  The Year 6 students have been working on the design of goods and services for the Year 6 Fair.  This integrated unit of work  draws upon concepts and skills across Maths, Economics (HaSS) and Technologies.

Goods and services will be on sale to PP – Year 5 students for $1-$2 each. The Year 6 students are very excited about this event and we ask that students support the Fair by bringing some money (up to $10) to spend on the day.  All funds raised go back to the school.

NAPLAN – Individual student reports

Individual Year 3 and Year 5 student NAPLAN reports were sent home this week. NAPLAN is in a period of transition, and 2021 was the third year where students completed either a paper test or an online test. The objective of moving NAPLAN online is to deliver better, more precise and more engaging assessments for schools and students.  The NAPLAN information is part of a student’s overall assessment and complements teacher judgements. Please keep this document in a safe place as it is often required in future enrolment processes.

We hope your child enjoyed the author visits for Book week. We have quite a few outstanding payments from families for this incursion. It would be appreciated if you could forward payment if you have not already done so. If you are unsure, you can check ‘My Receipts’ in the Qkr menu for past payments. Thank you.
