Newsletter 10 Term 3, Week 10, 23rd September 2020

FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Thank you to all staff, students and parents for your cooperation and flexibility during a very different Term Three. Unfortunately, we have not been able to participate in a number of events that we normally would (WAGSMS, Book Parade etc.) due to COVID-19. However, we did enjoy our Conga Dance and Athletics Carnivals. Let’s hope moving forward that we are able to bring our school community together more often.

It is hard to believe that we will be commencing Term 4 in a couple of weeks, this being the final term for our Year 6 students at Wellard Primary School.  I would like to wish these students all the best and hope they continue to work hard throughout the term. 

BICYCLES AND SCOOTERS

Over the last week we have had a bicycle and scooter stolen from the bike racks. Whilst we make every effort to ensure the safety of all property belonging to students we cannot guarantee this. Parents are asked to provide their child with a lock so their bike or scooter cannot be removed from the bike rack area.

OPEN NIGHT

Thank you to everyone who attended our Open Night conducted on Tuesday evening. The night was quite unique as it was the first time that parents were able to enter their child’s class since March of this year. Feedback from parents has been very positive and I know students were very excited about showing the wonderful work they have been doing during the term. It was most pleasing to see so many parents come along and view their children’s work. A big thank you to staff (including non-teaching staff) who went to considerable lengths in preparing their classrooms. I hope that parents enjoyed the experience and now have a more informed understanding of the learning activities their child has been involved in.

HOUSE ATHLETICS CARNIVALS

Congratulations to all students on the level of sportsmanship they displayed throughout the days and the way they conducted themselves in their bay. At last we had great weather for all three days!! Well done to Green House and to the champions and runners up for each of the age groups.

Special thanks to those parents and relatives for your support in cheering on all students. Another huge thank you to the P&C and their helpers who organised the Sausage Sizzles on both days. Well done Mr Paparone and Mrs Protzman on organising outstanding carnivals. I would also like to thank and acknowledge the efforts of staff over the last term in preparing students for their week of athletics.

END OF TERM DATES

Please note that students finish this term as of Friday 25th September

NO SCHOOL DEVELOPMENT DAY

Please note that students return to school on Monday 12th October. There is no School Development Day on the first day back so students need to come to school.
