Message From the Principal

Dear Families,

As I write this, we are busy getting ready for our Swimming Carnival and Water Fun Day. These days are not possible without our staff putting in extra hours and our parents volunteering their time. We are so appreciative of the help we receive to run these special events for our students.

Yesterday, our swimming lessons for Years 3 to 6 came to an end. Although the water was chilly on some days, the outside weather was perfect for being in the sun. A big thank you to the Karratha Leisureplex for continuing to run the school swimming program, and to the swim teachers who travel around the regional parts of Western Australia delivering lessons.

Next week we will be celebrating our mothers and mother figures. Those wonderful women who look after us and teach us so much. On Tuesday and Wednesday we will be running our Mother’s Day Stall, with gifts costing $6 each. On Friday, the P&F are holding a Mother’s Day breakfast, followed by a whole school liturgy led by our Year One classes.

I look forward to seeing you at our celebrations next week.

Wishing you all a safe and restful weekend.

Warm regards,

Clare Bennett

Acting Principal

School Canteen

We are unfortunately running into a few difficulties with reopening our school canteen due new Food Health and Safety legislations.

In the meantime, we will continue to offer Special Lunches on a Friday, such as sushi or Subway. Next Friday, Sushi will be available for all students to order via Quickcliq. Please note that orders will close at 2pm on Wednesday.

Our Service Club will also be selling icy poles on Friday for 50c each. This term, all proceeds will be going towards Communio, a fundraiser that supports those in need within our Geraldton diocese.

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:
