We look forward to seeing you at the dance demonstration on that date.

Remember to get your stickers in promptly so they count towards the class competition!


Lunchtime Judo Demonstration - Thursday 21 September at 12.40pm

Representatives from the U.W.A. Judo Club will present a brief demonstration during lunch time this Thursday. Interested students can bring their lunch and eat in the Altius centre from 12.40pm.


Thank you Louise

This week will be the final week for Ms Louise Zoller who has worked with our Junior classes supporting students and class programs as an Education Assistant.

Families would have seen her work, perhaps without knowing the size of her role and the value of the work she did. We wish her all the best with her plans for the rest of the year and beyond. Thank you!

Nationally Consistent Collection of Data of School Students with Disability

Our school is part of an Australia-wide project about students with disabilities. As defined in the Disability Discrimination Act(1992), disabilities can include Medical (eg asthma, anaphalaxis, diabetes), Social/Emotional and physical conditions and/or learning difficulties. The Australian Government has asked school to provide information about the number of children in our school with specific needs, and the programs and resources used to support them. School staff will draw on evidence to identify the level of adjustment being provided for these students. The data collected will inform planning and decisions at the national, state and sector level. This information will assist all Australian schools to better meet their responsibilities under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and improve support for the learning needs of students with disability.

To safeguard the privacy of individual students, only de-identified school level data will be used. All information collected will be kept confidential.

The collection of the data will occur early in Term 3. An information sheet is available from the school office or from the following website: -nationally-consistent-collection-data-school-students-disability
