Dear Parents, Friends, Staff and Students
The final few weeks of the term are flying by. The teaching staff have been busy conducting parent and teacher interviews over the telephone. Thank you to our staff for their preparation for the interviews and thank you to our parents for making the time available to have a conversation with your child’s class teacher. The parent and teacher interviews in Term One are most valuable conversations. The interview provides the parents with an opportunity to hear from the class teacher the progress the children are making during the term and set goals for further improvements into Term Two. Please make sure you organise an interview time with the teachers, prior to the end of the term.

Pupil Free Day – Monday 28th March
Parents are reminded that Monday 28th March is a pupil free day, and the children can enjoy a long weekend. The staff will be working together on Monday to begin writing our Vision for Learning.
All students, from Pre-Kindy to Year Six, will finish at 12.00pm on Tuesday 5th April. The early close will provide our teaching staff with time to conclude their parent and teacher interviews.
Thank you to the P&F for organising the Annual Easter Raffle. A flier has been sent home requesting donations of Easter goodies. Please support the Easter Raffle as it is something the children look forward to each year.
St Patrick’s Day Fun
Covid-19 Self Reporting Portal
I am most grateful to our parents for using the self-reporting portal to report both positive and negative COVID-19 test results. Entering results on the portal assists the school in monitoring COVID cases and saves us time with reporting to CEWA and WA Health. The portal is an efficient way for parents, and the school, to fulfill their requirements to report cases. It continues to be mandatory that positive RATs are reported to WA Health. The portal is available on our website and can be accessed via the link: COVID-19 Self-Reporting Portal
Harmony Week celebrates Australia’s cultural diversity. It is about inclusiveness, respect, and a sense of belonging for everyone. The Harmony Week values are central to our faith as Catholic Christians. They reflect the example of Jesus in valuing all human life, in the richness of difference and diversity. It recognises the image of God in every human being.
Loving God, just as you chose your apostles from all walks of life, we pray that we may follow your example and embrace the unique qualities that each of us possess, so that we may bring about harmony on this earth. We pray to the Lord.
I hope you all enjoy the extra-long weekend.
