World Teachers' Day

World Teachers' Day is held on Friday 31 October 2014. In many countries, Teacher's Days (or Teachers Day) are intended to be special days for the appreciation of teachers, and may include celebrations to honour them for their special contributions in a particular field area, or the community in general. The date on which Teachers' day is celebrated varies from country to country. We would like you to take the opportunity to acknowledge a member of our teaching staff by completing a short 1 minute survey.  If you would like to nominate a non-teaching staff member, please do so.  This survey needs to be completed by Tuesday 28 October 2014.

Student Smartrider 50 Cent Fare: Conditions of Travel

From time to time, members of the public write to us about incidents where students have chosen not to stand for adults, especially those with particular with needs, when travelling on public transport.

While Transperth is the agency responsible for all bus, train and ferry services in the metropolitan area, we know that many thousands of students use the public transport system each day in school terms. Indeed, they are subsidised to do so through the Student SmartRider 50 cent fare.

You are reminded that when travelling on the Student SmartRider 50 cent fare, you must stand for adults, particularly adults with special needs (eg. seniors, people with disabilities and pregnant women).

There are many people in our community who struggle to stand for long periods when on buses or trains. By offering them your seat you are not only adhering to the conditions of your subsidised 50 cent fare but helping someone in greater need.

Further details of conditions for the Student SmartRider 50 cent fare are on the Transperth website.

Year 7 - Australian School Curriculum 2015

In 2015, Year 7 public school students will move to secondary school and be taught under the new Australian Curriculum.

The Year 7 Australian Curriculum has more in-depth content in each subject and higher expectations about the knowledge and skills that children need so they can succeed in and contribute to our modern world.  Some Western Australian curriculum content that is currently taught in Year 8 will be taught in Year 7 from 2015 in the Australian Curriculum.

Smartrider Cards

Smartrider Cards are available in our 'Student Services Department' for $5.00 per card.  This card is to be utilised in the school Library to enable students to borrow books, use on buses and is a very important source of identification.  If your child has not applied for the Smartrider Card, please do so before school, recess and lunch.


Skateboard and Scooter - reminder

Please be reminded that skateboards and scooters are not allowed at school. If you do bring them to school, then the item will be handed into administration for a parent or guardian to collect.
 
Thank you for your co-operation.
