We understand the concerns among our school community regarding COVID-19. Please be assured that the safety and well-being of our students is our highest priority. We will continue to monitor the Coronavirus situation and be guided by advice from the Department of Education and the Department of Health on actions to be taken. Please know that our school and classrooms are an extremely safe place for students to be. There is currently no indication that WA schools will be asked to close.
Our school remains open and students are expected to attend unless we advise you otherwise. Please continue to let us know via School Stream or by phone (9923 1278) if your child is at home unwell so that their attendance can be marked accurately. Staff will continue to focus their time on planning and teaching.
We will continue to remind students about taking care of their personal hygiene while at school by using the soap and hand sanitiser that are provided.
If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Changes to Events:
In line with the government’s social gathering advice, this Fridays Cricket Carnival has been postponed and we will also be altering our all-school Harmony Day activities to classroom groups only.
Our School Assembly scheduled for Friday 27 March has been postponed. Merit and Reading certificates will be presented to students individually in front of their classroom peers. We look forward to Room 15 having the opportunity to present their Assembly item at a future date.
It is important that we have access to our families most recent contact details. A yellow Student Update Form has been sent home with students this week. Please complete and return to us by Friday 20 March. Thank you to those who have done so already.
We encourage all parents and caregivers to follow our Facebook page and download our School Stream App for important updates. Instructions on how to download this app are included inside this newsletter.

Nationally Consistent Collection of Data for School Students with Disability.
Our school is part of a national project about students with a disability and/or learning difficulties.
We have been asked to provide data about the number of children and their learning needs. The name of the school and the name of the students will not be reported. Information about the different types of needs and the programs and resources the school uses to overcome barriers and support children with special educational needs will be collected.
We believe it is important to contribute to this because it will help Governments and the Department develop better policies that acknowledge the level of resources needed in schools to meet the needs of all students in Western Australia.
