Planting the Seeds of Wholeness

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”

Robert Louis Stevenson

 Hello and thank you for all support given to the life education and growth journey of the children.

The upgrade of the front gardens and playgrounds is a wonderful stage in the life-education journey for us all. The creative pathways the work provides for the children are inspirational. The fences will soon be removed and work will commence on the Kindy Rose play area.

As we embrace the changes these developments bring we give thanks to Chris our dedicated gardener and all those who have tended and nurtured these spaces with such care and love. Thank you.

We will advise everyone when we know the commencement dates for the installation of a multi-purpose room and the re-location of the Cottage, to enable the transitions to be successful.

Exploratory Play Spiral: We are fundraising to complete the exploratory play section around the spiral located in the Primary Playground. If you would like more information, or would like to contribute to this project, please contact our finance officer on financeofficer@wcss.wa.edu.au.

West Coast Fathering Group: A West Coast Fathering activity will take place on Sunday 17 June from 10.00am. Please see the attached flyer to learn more about this initiative.

Strings Assembly: All parents are welcome to attend our Strings Assembly next Thursday May 24, commencing at 8.35am. This is an opportunity to be present for the beautiful, musical work of the children, led by Jasmin and supported so well by the teachers. The strings assembly provides for a moving celebration of the curriculum; meaningful, engaging and so rich in expression.

Open Day Fair: We will hold our Open Day Fair when the above playground and building works are completed. This will provide opportunity for the whole school community to celebrate the beauty, scope for imaginative engagement and learning together, that they will offer the children.

Our Website contains important and purposeful polices related to school operations. Please take the time to read them and follow-up if you have any questions. It also captures and highlights much amazing activity, such as our Winter Festival to be held this term. The updates on our School Website and posts on Facebook and Instagram are great ways to engage with and share our story.

The Feature Article in next week’s edition of the Gazette, Warmth, by Kindy Rose teacher Vanessa Fountain, I found to be great learning, the insights contextual and renewing. Happy reading.

Water Bubbler: Some students have not been using the water bubbler this week.  Please assure your children that it is thoroughly cleaned every day and is safe to use.

PAT and Waddington: We administer the PAT Reading (Spelling list, Reading Comprehension, and Vocabulary), PAT Maths and PAT SPG (Grammar and Punctuation) resources each year. We also implement the Waddington standardised spelling resource. Implementation of these resources are part of the whole school assessment schedule. They help enable analysis of progressive achievement toward informing related planning going forward.

Walk to School Day tomorrow Friday May 18th is a great opportunity to park at Nollamara Shopping Centre and walk the few minutes to school with your child/ren.

Please see the reminders in next Tuesday’s Gazette or on the website in The Parent Handbook on the children’s dress code and procedure for absences, late arrivals and early departures. The Gazette also has important dates to note for the term.

Thank you again everyone for your ongoing support for a growth environment for all.
