Principal News: 11th April 2018

I would like to congratulate all children and staff  on the many achievements they have made this term. I would also like to acknowledge our wonderful P&C who have continued to raise funds for the school. So far this year they have funded maths resources across all classrooms, sustainable gardens for Caralee and Bull Creek, and provided our Beeliar site with new reading books. In addition they provided funds to support the establishment of an extra classroom at Beeliar and iPads. Over the past week there has been a focus on the meaning of ANZAC day. There will be a special ANZAC day ceremony at each site & parents are very welcome to join us at:

Caralee: Thursday 9:30am

Bull Creek: Friday 2:15pm

Beeliar: Friday 9.00am

I will be taking long service leave from this Thursday 12th April and returning at the start of Term 3. On my return I will be reducing my hours to four days a week, taking Thursdays off. Vivienne Doig will be taking on the Principal’s role in my absence and one day a week on my return in Term 3. Viv has been a long term Deputy Principal at the school and has experience in being in the Principal’s role. She has strong management and leadership skills and I know the school will be in safe hands. Deputy Principals Jennie Dawson and Nichola Middlemiss will increase their days to take on Viv’s Deputy Principal’s role.

The upcoming holiday break provides an opportunity for you to extend your child’s vocabulary and world knowledge through visits and holiday activities. These can be as simple as a bush walk, a visit to the harbour to watch the boats and cranes, or a trip on the train or bus. Remember to name, describe and discuss what you see and most important, see how much they can remember later on. I hope you all have a happy and safe holiday break with your children.
