Lately there have been several children who thought orders had been placed but who did not have orders on the system. Could families please be aware that if you do not receive a confirmation email for the child’s order then it has not gone through. Sometimes the ‘add item’ and ‘pay and place order’ buttons have been missed. Please check for the email to ensure your child’s order will be received. Thank you.

General News Week 5

Year 6 Day Camp – 21st May 2019 (Day Camp photos in our Gallery section)

On our Day Camp we grew our leadership skills of perspective and active listening as we learned about Aboriginal culture and how to fish and hunt. We tried some bush tucker such as damper and kangaroo.  There was so much knowledge and understanding of the land and animals that we never realised, like the Aboriginal people adapted themselves, not the environment. We also did lots of other activities like grinding grain, painting our faces with a totem animal and making fire. Lots of parents came to help us with our barbeque and then we did a night walk through the forest to look for native animals – so many spiders and possums! All our learning was done outside surrounded by beautiful native trees and bushes. At the end of the day, our most prized possessions are our memories of the great time and learning we had at the Perth Hills Discovery Centre. Charli, Emma, Charleze, Anna, Luka, Arwen

Kapinara School Disco – June 7th 2019 

The year 6 parents and students would like to invite all students from Kindy to Year 6 to the school’s annual disco Friday June 7th upstairs at Floreat Beach Surf Club.  The Junior disco (Kindy to Year 2) will run from 5.00-6.30pm and the Senior disco (Years 3 to 6) from 7.00-8.30pm. There will be a fun theme, DJ, decorations, food and drink included in your ticket price.
Floreat Beach Surf Club is a fantastic and secure venue that provides plenty of space for the children to move and the DJ to set up. The area is fully lockable downstairs so no child is able to enter or leave the premises without being signed off on the attendance register.  The senior students will enter through the front door for their disco whilst the younger children will be taken to the back courtyard to await pickup with year 6 parents as supervisors throughout the evening.  Please note that the disco is fully supervised by Year 6 parents who will be easily identifiable.  Bathroom and kitchen facilities are all within the complex so there is no need for anyone to exit once they have been signed in.
This is an off school grounds experience which makes it extra exciting for the kids. However, if your child feels uncomfortable being left alone any parent is welcome to come up to the balcony area to stay and watch (younger siblings are also welcome). 
The school disco is a major fundraiser for the Year 6 students and the money raised goes towards their camp and graduation activities. So please put the date in your diary and support our Year 6s. Further information will be sent out closer to the event.
With thanks from the Year 6 Disco Planning Committee.  If you have any questions to be fielded to the committee, please feel free to contact Danielle Huljich on 0429 884 033 or email daniellehuljich@hotmail.com

School fundraiser – The school is collecting Woollies stickers again this year.  We have collection boxes in the office and there will be one down at Kindy as well. Stickers are to be placed on a sheet (these are at the office and at Kindy) and placed in the box and then we can earn to obtain resources for the school.  This will run from 1 May to 25 June, thank you.
