Poetic Poets in Year Four


Executive Director’s Message: Reflecting on the first half of 2020

The end of Term Two is just a couple of days away, and as our lives at school, work and home in Western Australia become less and less restricted, looking back on this year so far gives a truly remarkable perspective.

There is much to be grateful for with the COVID-19 situation continuing to improve in our State, to the point where our Catholic schools and colleges not only have students and teachers in classrooms, playgrounds, labs and libraries, but students are able to look forward to camps and enjoy many co-curricular activities again.

I know that schools and staff across our Catholic education system have received wonderful support from parents all year, and from their colleagues, and I thank all of our parents and families for their support of their school communities.

Enrolments 2021

Thank you to parents and grandparents who recommend our school to others in the community.  We have had a few enrolments over this past week that are a direct result of an existing family recommendation.  Your positive and kind words to others about the school are greatly appreciated.

We are currently focusing our enrolment efforts on Pre-Kindy for 2021.  Please encourage family members, friends and neighbours to consider Matthew Gibney Catholic Primary School for Pre-Kindy.



Parents are reminded that absentee notifications need to be sent through to the administration office prior to 9.30am in order to avoid an SMS message being sent out.  Parents emailing their class teacher about an absentee are asked to copy the administration office email into the message.
