Dear Parents / Guardians
Semester 1 student reports will be emailed out to parents at the end of this term.
The benefits are
- parents being able to retain a digital record of student report.
- the financial and workload benefits in the printing and collation of reports at a school level.
- the ability to provide copies of reports to each parent or guardian where dictated by family circumstances
- The timely delivery of reports to parents and guardians.
On the 1st April, selected students from years 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 took part in the Joondalup Festival Lantern Parade. While most played “You Raise Me Up” on Indonesian musical bamboo instruments called angklung, other students carried lanterns and danced in the parade. The participants wore colourful Indonesian costumes from Java, Sumatera, Kalimantan and Sulawesi Island.
We would like to say a big thank you to Mrs Zulyani Sawono and Fransisca Smith who helped us during the parade.
Thank you to parents and caregivers who watched the twilight lantern parade.
Well done, students.
This term all students viewed ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ the art installation that was at the Tower of London in 2014. It marked one hundred years since the first full day of Britain’s involvement in the First World War. Created by artists Paul Cummins and Tom Piper, 888,246 ceramic poppies filled the Tower’s famous moat. Each poppy represented a British military fatality during the war.
In response to this each student then had the opportunity to create a red poppy to be a part of a whole campus collaborative art installation for remembrance at our ANZAC ceremony.
Quite a number of our students were born overseas. Some of these students and their families also speak a variety of languages at home.
Friday couldn’t have been a nicer day for a faction carnival. The sun was out, the students were cheerful in their colours and the support was fantastic. Well done to everyone who were there and gave it their best. It was great to see such fantastic sportsmanship, hard work and happy smiley faces all round.
