Principal’s Updates Term 2 week 3

Kaya Everyone,

Welcome back to Term 2. It has been wonderful to join such a welcoming and caring school community and I look forward to building on the strengths of the school. We have started Term 2 positively with students settling back into school routines. It is great to see students arrive at school and engaging in their morning work straight away, getting ready for the school day and completing some consolidation tasks before the first lesson starts.

Thank you to our P and C for their incredible set up of our Mother’s Day stall which was held this week. The students certainly enjoyed selecting a gift to celebrate this special day for our mothers, grandmas, carers and other important women in our lives. I wish you all a safe and Happy Mother’s Day for Sunday the 14th of May.

Public School Review

The Public School Review affirms existing good practice across the six domains at Quinns Beach Primary School. The report provides the school with a point of reference so we continue to reflect on school improvement efforts and identify areas in which our current work could be more effective to in meeting the needs of our students. The Quinns Beach Primary School review was held last term and our report is now ready to share. To access the full report please see the attachment.

Trek2School Study

Quinns Beach Primary school has been selected to participate in the Trek2School Study which is being conducted by the Telethon Kids Institute and the University of Western Australia in partnership with the WA Department of Transport. If you have a child in Year 5 or 6 I encourage you to participate the parent survey to provide information regarding traffic and road safety to assist us in future school transport initiatives and programs. Please refer to the parent information sent out via Dojo and email.

Assembly

Our first class assembly for Term 2 will be held in the undercover area this Friday the 12th of May at 8.45am. We look forward to seeing K4- Year 2 perform their class item and all our merit awards winners to receive their certificates.

School uniform

As the weather starts to cool down, I encourage all families to ensure their child is still wearing full school uniform including jumpers and trackpants. Uniforms give students a sense of belonging and enhance pride in their school.
