COVID-19 UPDATE

We have been so impressed by the resilience and independence shown by your children during these COVID-19 times.  Your children are excited about both coming to school and seeing you at the end of the day.  We have also enjoyed seeing their happy faces at the gates.

Feedback from parents has been positive. 

We have seen:

  • Your children are happily carrying their bags and water bottles and setting themselves up for the day.
  • They are noticeably more confident.
  • They are less likely to be late.
  • Classes are beginning on time with minimal disruption.
  • Older siblings are looking after the little ones.
  • Children in the ESC are feeling calm and safe.

 

In the interest of maintaining these benefits to your children and in accordance with the instructions received from the Department of Education Western Australia today, we would like to update you with our new school management arrangements.

We have been instructed to limit the number of parents, carers and visitors on the school grounds to 100.

The Department has encouraged us to continue with our usual management practices to ensure that we do not go over this limit and to continue our good hygiene strategies.

Therefore, we will continue to follow the drop off and pick up arrangements that are currently in place.  All gates will continue to be locked throughout the day.

You are very welcome to attend our school site if you have a pre-arranged meeting.  Please contact the office or your child’s teacher if you would like to organise this.
