Year 3 and Year 5 students will participate in NAPLAN Assessments, along with students across Australia, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in Week 3.  I am confident that our students are well prepared for the assessments. We encourage the students to do their best.  We are mindful that, although the NAPLAN tests are valuable, it is one test on one day. Please make sure your children have a good night’s sleep during the week and have a healthy breakfast before coming to school.

Parent Volunteers

We are keen to welcome our parents back into classrooms as parent helpers.  We will begin with a cautious approach, with only one volunteer in classrooms at any one time.  Parent help with reading books will re-commence in Week 4.  Parents are reminded that proof of vaccination is required if volunteering at any school for more than two occasions in a week.

COVID_19 Reporting

Please continue to report positive COVID-19 test results on the CEWA portal.  Please keep us informed in a timely way if your child or a family member has COVID. Students who are close contact family members are strongly encouraged to attend school if they are well.  A negative RAT test needs to be administered and reported on the portal every day for 7 days.

Thank you for continuing to keep your children at home, if they are unwell.
