Dear Parents and Caregivers

Week commencing – Monday 7th March 2022

    Assembly – Merit Assemblies will continue via TEAMS. Year 6 Leaders will run our assembly via TEAMS. Children will remain in their class groups, the Merit Award will be announced by Leadership, and the Merit Award will be handed to the student in the classroom. A photograph will be sent to the proud family and TRUE awards will be announced. Performance assemblies will be postponed until these settings change.

​We have been overwhelmed by the support from our Year 3-6 parents in relation to their children wearing masks from today. I am so proud of the agility and resilience of these students who have not complained and just got on with their day. They are a credit to you as parents and to our school.

Please keep those families who are currently dealing with Covid-19 or who are close contacts in your prayers. They are following all guidelines to keep our community safe.

Should a family member or a student within our school test positive for Covid-19, you will be guided by WA Health as to testing and isolation protocols. They will inform you to notify the school immediately. Please be advised that this is kept in strict confidence and from there, the school will enact our 6 Step Covid-19 Response Plan. Please click here to view the Level 2 Public Health Measures – effective from 12.01am Thursday 3rd March –  Level 2 Public Health Measures

From Tuesday 8th March until Friday 11th March, I will be on Long Service Leave. In my absence, Mr Brennan will take all emails and calls related to Covid-19 communication within the community. Mrs Caputi will be responsible for staff management with Covid-19.

In the words of Archbishop Timothy Costelloe during his celebration of Ash Wednesday Mass, ” No matter what dangers or difficulties we face, we are never abandoned by God who remains with us.”

We thank you in advance for your support in keeping our community safe.

Stay Healthy, Stay Safe and Stay United!!

Kind regards

Mrs Pina Hutcheson
