Message From the Principal

Dear Families,

This morning we celebrated all of the wonderful mothers in our school. Beginning with a beautiful breakfast provided by the P&F, and concluding with a prayerful liturgy led by our Year Ones. Throughout the week our Kindy classes also celebrated with their Mother’s Day afternoon teas. It’s moments like these, where we can come together as a community, that the St Paul’s spirit really comes alive.

Next week, we begin preparing our Year Four students for the Sacrament of First Eucharist. A parent/child information night will be held at St Paul’s Church on Wednesday at 6:15pm. We pray for all of our candidates as they make this special step towards strengthening their relationship with God.

Our Book Fair also runs from Monday to Thursday next week. Mrs Retz has been busy setting up the Book Fair and turning our library into a beachside paradise! Come down and check it out before or after school.

For our families who have younger siblings ready for Kindergarten in 2025, please pick up an enrolment pack from the office to secure your spot.

Wishing all of our mothers and mother figures a truly wonderful weekend.

Warm regards,

Clare Bennett

Acting Principal

Mothers Day Breakfast & Liturgy

We thank everyone who made our Mother’s Day breakfast memorable. Thank you to the P&F for their dedicated efforts in organising such a lovely event. It was a pleasure to witness families come together to enjoy a delicious breakfast on the grass in the sun’s warmth.

We also want to thank the Year One team, led by Miss Homer, Miss Connell, Miss Dawson, and the Year Ones, for their touching Mother’s Day liturgy. Their words and reflections on the importance of mothers in our lives were impactful.

Father Dom’s story about his mother further highlighted the significant role mothers have in shaping our lives. The liturgy, accompanied by Mrs. Beins and the choir’s beautiful performance, was truly special. Witnessing the school come together to bless our mothers and seeing each mother receive a beautiful flower from the Year Ones added to the beauty of the day.

Once again, thank you to everyone who contributed to making our Mother’s Day celebration a wonderful and memorable event.

Australian Early Development Census

From May 2024, our school, along with thousands of others across the country, will participate in the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC).

The AEDC is a teacher-completed census (similar to a questionnaire) which provides a comprehensive picture of how children have developed by the time they start their first year of full-time school.

The AEDC is an Australian Government Initiative and is completed nationally every three years.

Children don’t miss any class time while the AEDC is completed, and parents/carers don’t need to supply schools with any new information.

The data collected through the AEDC is used by schools, communities and governments to better understand children and families’ needs, and identify the services, resources and support they need.

AEDC data is reported at a school, community, state/territory and national level. AEDC results for individual children are not reported and the AEDC is not used as an individual diagnostic tool.

Some teachers have found that completing the AEDC made them more aware of the needs of individual children and their class, and that the data was useful for planning for transitions to Year 1 and developing programs.

Participation in the AEDC is voluntary, however the AEDC relies on all schools with children in their first year of full-time school participating in the collection. Parents/carers don’t need to take any action unless they choose not to include their children in the census.

To find out more about the AEDC and how it is being used to help children and families visit: www.aedc.gov.au.

First Eucharist

This term our Year Four students will be preparing to receive the Sacrament of First Eucharist. If your child is in either Year Five or Year Six and would like to receive this Sacrament, please contact Mrs Bennett via email, clare.bennett@cewa.edu.au

The Premier's Reading Challenge

The Premier’s Reading Challenge runs from the 6th of May to the 6th of September. The idea is that you try to read as many books as you can!

It’s a competition right across the state and there’s some great prizes – including a Nintendo Switch.

So, everyone get on board with the Premier’s Reading Challenge for 2024. Get to your books!
