Term 4 – Week 5, 11 November 2020

COVID Guidelines
We will have COVID guidelines which we will have to follow on Presentation Night.  Family groups can sit together without having to socially distance, but there will need to be a distance of 1 to 1.5 metres between family groups.  This may necessitate some shifting of seats when people arrive which our Deputies will oversee.

Staff Leaving
We are sad to be losing two valuable staff members, but happy for both ladies as they take on new positions in 2021.  The details are:

  • Ms Williams moving to Beenyup Primary School.
  • Ms Avery moving to Caladenia Primary School.

We thank both ladies for the wonderful contribution they have made to Kewdale and wish them all the best for the future.

 Interschool Athletics
We have our Interschool athletics carnival this Friday.  We wish our competitors all the very best.  A huge thank you to Mrs Piani for organising and training the team.

Colour Run
In what is becoming something of a tradition, we have our Colour Run coming up on Friday 27 November.  This will be the third (3rd) time we have held the event.  Details will come to parents on a separate flyer today.  Thank you to Mrs Fiegert and Mrs Piani for organising the day.

Early Students
We have had an issue with some students arriving unnecessarily early at school.  We have some who need to be here, and the parents of those students have asked permission to do so.  However too many students are arriving far too early and are being somewhat silly when they are here.  They should not be here until 8.30 am.  All early students are required to sit quietly in the undercover area until rooms open at 8.35am. 

Car Wash
Well done to our Year 6 students on their fundraising car wash held recently.  $1080.00 was raised to go towards Activity Week, which is an excellent effort.  Thank you to Mr Kingston and Mrs Richmond for organising the car wash, and also thank you to the parents and students who helped out.

A reminder that school uniform is still a requirement for all students.
