Leavers Assembly

On Wednesday 8th December we hosted our Fremantle LDC Leavers Assembly. This was an opportunity to celebrate the success of our students, and say farewell to the friends who will be leaving us to return to their mainstream primary school next year. The children displayed confidence and courage to sing a beautiful song, We’re On Our Way which is all about trying your best and never giving up. The Year 3s hosted the event and did a wonderful job speaking in the microphone.

Celebration Night

On Monday night Bull Creek Primary School held their Celebration Night. The B1, B2 and B3 students performed a dance to Chihuahua and were absolute superstars! Congratulations to Ava for receiving the Citizenship Award on behalf of the Fremantle Language Development Centre. Thank you to our families for joining us on this very special occasion.

Christmas Raffle

A very big thank you to the P&C for organising a wonderful Christmas raffle. We had many happy winners at Bull Creek! Thank you also to the families who kindly donated items to be included in the raffle.


Nature Playground

After much anticipation, our new early childhood nature playground was opened by Mrs Marchenko and the Bull Creek Primary School P&C last Friday. Our Pre-Primary children love making music on the steel mushrooms, delighting in the ‘magic’ water that appears from the rocks, and climbing on the logs.

Bull Creek News: Celebration Night & Fathering Project

Celebration Night

Celebration Night will commence at 5:30pm on Monday 13 December.

Please ensure that children arrive at school and make their way to the classrooms at 5:00pm. Teachers will walk their class out to the Sheoak Basketball Court and be seated by approximately 5:20pm.

We will cordon off areas specifically designated for parents who wish to sit on blankets so please be mindful of this. School chairs will not be provided, but there will be nominated areas for families who bring their own fold up chairs.

Following the Edu-Dance performances, Mrs Sharon Marchenko, Principal Bull Creek Primary School; Mrs Nicky Stott, President of the Bull Creek PS P&C and class teachers will present the Citizenship Awards. Award winners will receive a medallion, certificate and book voucher. The book vouchers have kindly been donated by the Bull Creek PS P&C. Mr Darren Roberts, Bull Creek PS Board Chair will address the assembled group.

The Bull Creek PS P&C will be selling sausage sizzles, hamburgers, vegie burgers, drinks, and ice creams. Thanks to Marisa and her team of helpers from the local church who will be cooking and serving. This will allow parents to watch their children perform.

This is a great opportunity for the children to showcase their dance moves and we look forward to your attendance.

Chickenpox

It has been confirmed that a child in our school community has chickenpox. You usually get chickenpox by breathing in the varicella virus that has been coughed or sneezed into the air by an infectious person. Chickenpox is highly contagious. If you have chickenpox you will be contagious (able to spread the virus) from up to 2 days before the red spots appear and until around 5 days after rash appears and until vesicles have formed crusts. You will stop being contagious when there are no new blisters or moist crusts forming on your body.

If you suspect you or your child has chickenpox please see your doctor for a diagnosis.

If you would like more information relating to chickenpox, please click the link below for the fact sheet from the health department. https://www.healthywa.wa.gov.au/~/media/HWA/Documents/Health-conditions/Chickenpox/Chickenpox-factsheet.pdf

A Message from the Bull Creek Primary School P&C

Thanks to all who attended our movie night on Friday night. Thanks to your generosity, we raised over $2000! There were a few items left behind, 2 cushions, a Disney jumper and a white cardigan. These will be in the front office if you would like to collect.

Many thanks! Amanda


School Library

In order to implement the new library system, I need all students to return the library books they have on loan by Wed 24th as Data Migration procedures need to commence on Friday 26th Nov.

There is no further borrowing from the library for 2021.

I apologise for the early closure on borrowing as I know the students love coming to the library to borrow books, but this is unavoidable.

Your cooperation in reminding students to return their books ASAP would be very much appreciated.

Thank you, Nola Williams – Library Officer
