Interschool Cross Country Event

On Thursday, 14 August we took a team of 29 students from Years 3-6 to the School Sport WA Cross Country Championships. After many events were cancelled this year, it was great to see our students competing at such a big event. There were over 2000 students participating, with many of the races having up to 300 competitors. All of the Kapinara students who attended displayed exemplary sportsmanship and brilliant team spirit. We had four students who finished within the top 20 in their respective races and secured an invite to try out for the State Schools cross country team. Congratulations to Harper T (Year 3) who placed 15th, Xavier M (Year 3) who placed 6th, Meg W (Year 4) who placed 11th, and Chelsea H (Year 5) who placed 12th.  We are very proud of how our students trained to prepare for this event and the way in which they displayed strength and perseverance on the day.

2021 Planning

Just a reminder to please let us know if your child won’t be returning to Kapinara next year. While it seems fairly early, it is important information for our planning, particularly in terms of budgeting, and structuring classes. Thanks for your understanding in this regard.

Science Week

We are celebrating all things Science this week! 

Our students have been working hard on the theme for Science Week; “Deep Blue”, with lots of critical thinking and creativity being displayed. This week will also include a fun and educational day of science activities for each year group. 

An enormous thank you to all our parent scientists for sharing their expertise. So far students have heard about marine biology, drilling for oil and turtle tagging! It’s been very special for the students and the teachers and we are looking forward to hearing about even more later this week.

Check out some of these excerpts from 2JB’s recount writing:

“Firstly, we had a chat about how oil is formed and then we watched a video of where oils came from. To create oil it needs pressure, heat and time.” – David B

“We made a model of how oil is made (using sandwiches). The sprinkles and M & Ms were fossils and the vegemite was oil. I loved this activity. We had to sit on our sandwiches for pressure and it was funny.” – Nixon G.

“We pressed the straws in like drills and we drilled them out. I found oil which was the vegemite! Did you know it takes 1 000 000 years to create oil?” Joshua M.

Phone upgrade

The school has had a phone upgrade to the new TCCCP digital system. Our school phone number has been changed to 9237 7450, however an indefinite redirection has been applied to the old number.

Waste Free Wednesday

This week the students will be taking part in a lot of fun activities for Science Week. The whole school has looked at the theme of Deep Blue: Innovations for the Future of our oceans. We have produced some fabulous art work which shows all the amazing creatures in the ocean and how important it is to protect them. We have also been horrified to discover some shocking statistics about the problem of plastic pollution and its impact on the ocean environment.
The Year 5s discovered that although it’s very helpful to pick up rubbish when you see it, a better way to solve the problem would be to use less plastic, particularly single use plastic. We’ve been taking part in Plastic Aware August and have been keeping a diary of any time we were able to help with the problem by reducing, reusing or recycling plastic.
A great way that the school would be able to help is by taking part in our Waste Free Wednesday which we will be starting again next week – 26/08/2020. The aim is to have no single use plastic or rubbish of any description in your lunch box. So no wrappers, plastic wrap or plastic bags. Instead, bring your lunch in containers which you can use lots of times and there will be no rubbish.
Thanks for helping to keep the oceans full of beautiful creatures and making the world a better place. Mrs Jonklaas
