    “Reach for the Stars”

  • From the Principal, Miss Sarah Perrett

    Dear Parents & Care Givers,

    We near the end of an extremely busy, but

    very productive semester. Both students and

    staff have earned themselves a well

    deserved break. Parents, may you cherish

    the holidays with your children and enjoy not

    making school lunches or washing uniforms.

    Student Reports and 3 Way Interviews

    Student reports will be emailed out and

    distributed next Thursday. On Thursday 25 th

    July (week 1, Term 3) there will be three-way

    parent, teacher and student interviews from

    11.35 am. This is a 15-minute session to dis-

    cuss your child’s achievement and progress

    following the Semester 1 reports, as well as

    setting goals for the second semester. A

    timetable was emailed home or alternatively

    contact the office to book your preferred time.

    Year 5/6 Resilience and Well-Being Expo

    Our Year 3—6 students attended the annual

    Football/Netball Carnival in Southern Cross.

    This is a day to allow students in these years

    to participating in a sport of their choice–

    netball or football. The students were able to

    play in teams with a mix of students from our

    school, Southern Cross DHS and St Joseph’s

    Primary. Once again we can be very proud of

    our students and the sportsmanship they

    displayed throughout the day.

    There were plenty of smiles on the students’

    faces and it was pleasing to see them

    develop friendships with students from the

    other schools.

    Congratulations to Claire Birtles who was

    recognised as being Fairest and Best for her


    Football and Netball Carnival

    Yesterday Year 5 and 6 students went to

    Merredin with schools from the district to

    learn about the harm drugs and alcohol can

    cause to self and others, how behaviours can

    affect others and lead to crime; as well as

    improve students’ understanding of making

    good decisions and goal setting.

    I encourage you all to attend our final

    assembly for the term on Friday 28th June at

    9:00am, where the Junior Room will be

    showcasing their learning from this term

    through an entertaining and informative


    Following the assembly there will be a

    Cancer Council Biggest Morning Tea and

    open classrooms, concluding around 11am.

    Free Dress Day

    NAIDOC Day

    NAIDOC Week is from

    7th—14th July, and as

    these dates are during the

    school holidays, we will be

    recognising NAIDOC Week

    in week 2 next term. The

    theme of NAIDOC Day is ‘Voice. Treaty.

    Truth’ which focuses on working together for

    a shared future. Our students will be joining

    those from Southern Cross DHS and St Jo-

    seph’s PS for an afternoon of activities and

    awareness. More information will be provided

    early next term.

    Timetable Changes

    There will be a few changes to the timetable

    for next semester. Art will be replaced by

    Music, and Physical Education (sport) for both

    classrooms will be on Tuesday afternoons,

    allowing the classes to combine to practice for

    the YSSSA Athletics Carnival in Term 3.

    I am very pleased to

    announce that our

    school has been suc-

    cessful in being accept-

    ed as a Circuit Breaker

    School for 2019.

    This is a program run by

    Western Power for students in our Senior

    Room who will learn about the various as-

    pects of the Western Power network and ex-

    ploring what it takes to provide electricity to

    our community so it is safe and reliable, as

    well as exploring new technologies that are

    changing the way we look at electricity supply

    in the future.

    Throughout the program, students will have

    access to a Western Power Engineer who will

    meet the students and share their knowledge

    of our network and assist where required.

    I look forward to sharing our progress in the

    program and successes of our students

    throughout the year.

  • On Friday 21st June we attended the YSSSA Football and Net-

    ball Carnival at Southern Cross. The Senior Room travelled on

    the bus to Southern Cross to participate. We played 4 games of

    football or netball and we all enjoyed it. My favourite part of

    the whole day was shooting a goal in netball.
