Welcome to Year 4 - 2021

Image
Good morning Year 4 parents,  Welcome to the 2021 school year! We are looking forward to meeting you all and getting to know the students as we begin the year. We thought that it would be helpful if we gave you some information on the logistics of the first few weeks which may be handy in finalising the last preparations for the students to come to school on Monday 1 st February. Due to ongoing restrictions and general COVID awareness, you are welcome to walk your child to the door and then we will take it from there. Day 1  – Is always busy and everyone (including us) is nervous about how the day will go. If you can make sure your child is at school as close to 8.30am as possible. might be a good idea to throw in a bandaid or two as new shoes sometimes take some time to wear in…don’t worry, we have plenty! Book Orders - If you can please make sure that you have unpacked and labelled all items as necessary, we would be very appreciative. We will assist the students with putt

The End of Term is Here!

 Good afternoon parents, Welcome to the last week of 2020...it has been a very busy few weeks and whilst this one feels like a lot...we can do it! Unfortunately though, I haven't recovered as well as I would have liked, so I will be taking Monday off just to make sure that I can see out the week...this is absolutely not what I want to be doing and rest assured I may have thrown a few toys about it! I am a horrible patient! I know its important to rest and make sure I am back at 100% for a fantastic last few days. I would like to thank you all for an amazing year...I have thoroughly enjoyed working with these beautiful children and they have been one of my favourite classes ever...I do know that you aren't supposed to say that but its true. I am giving them back to you a little taller, heavier and hopefully better at the learning things!! We have laughed and learnt and laughed some more...it certainly has been a year to remember! A few reminders for this week... Books - these wi

Week 7 Update

 Good morning parents, A short one this week...I hope you enjoyed the extra long weekend! The weather was amazing!! A few reminders for the last couple of weeks... Stationery - We will be working right up until the very end. If you can please make sure that your child has in their pencil case - a glue stick, ruler, lead pencil, eraser, read and blue pen.  We will begin sending books home in Week 9...if you would like to make sure that your child has a reusable bag tucked in from then that would be great! Vinnie's Appeal - A reminder that we are collecting toiletry items...if you can please have them in by the end of Week 8. Uthando Dolls - I am looking for someone to take on the coordinating of some people to help with quality control. Please let me know if you are able to do this...you can then organise a time and date that suits those helpers best. Maths & Science Assessments - We will be having our end of unit assessment on Tuesday next week. I will make sure the student

Week 6 Is Here!

 Good morning parents, Welcome to the week...I shared with the students today that we only had 19 days left of school! This was met with whoops of joy which I am sure was aimed at the 6 weeks holiday rather than leaving me. I can't believe how fast this year has gone...I remember March, June and August...throw in a bit of September and the rest has just been a blur! I have said it before but I am beyond proud of how much these amazing kids have grown and matured...physically and emotionally! They look a little different right! A massive thank you to Misty Hearne for the delicious cupcakes on Friday...they were enjoyed by all! Thank you also, to those parents that were able to make it! Congratulations to our Star Citizen award winner Cruz. A worthy recipient for this term's focus on Excellence! A few reminders for the coming weeks... Vinnies Hamper Appeal - This is a fantastic initiative that our school does every year in which we as a school community are asked to donate an it

What an Amazing Week!

 Good morning parents, Wow, what a day yesterday was! I was so incredibly proud of all the children...they were absolutely amazing. So reverent and respectful and I definitely had the proud tears during our Communion Reflection! Thank you so much for supporting the students, they all looked amazing! A massive thank you to Vanessa Hodge for the beautiful welcoming sign...I felt it really set the tone for the day. We will come together as a group on Friday morning 13th November at 10am in the hall to present the students with their certificate. We will also have the chance to have a cup of tea and the students will enjoy a cupcake kindly baked by Misty Hearne! I look forward to seeing you there if you are able to make it! If you have any photos from the weekend and are happy to share them I would love to have you email them through so I can share them! I was also lucky enough to spend part of my weekend down in gorgeous Hamelin Bay...I haven't stayed there before, only passed through

Week 4 Is Here!

Hello! Welcome to Week 4...we are on the countdown to a very special event this weekend and I am super excited! Just a few reminders for the coming week... Eucharist - Is on this Sunday 8th November at 10am...please make sure that you are there by 9.45am. We ask that you don't arrive any earlier as the parishioners from the previous mass will be leaving and this is part of our social distancing requirements. We are aware that a number of families are impacted by the limit on numbers...we do appreciate that many have family members that have travelled a long way to be a part of this special day and it is hard to have some miss out. It has been a  difficult year in this regard and we are truly sorry. We are having conversation at the moment with Amie Meyer and Fr Francis. to see if we are able to have some people bring an extra guest if others are having smaller parties.  We will get clarification out on this issue as soon as possible! We feel that the ceremony should be completed by

Welcome to Week 3

 Good morning parents, Welcome to Week 3 here in 4DEL. I hope that you enjoyed the beautiful weather over the weekend...it was lovely to feel that true warmth in the sun letting us know that Summer is on the way...another reason why Term 4 is my favourite term! I unfortunately spent the majority of the weekend in the company of the fine staff at Busselton Hospital after twinging my back on Wednesday. I am so grateful to live close to a hospital like Busselton, the doctors and nurses there are just amazing and I was blown away by the care and compassion that I received. I still need another day to make sure that I am tickety-boo but I am confident that I will be back on deck tomorrow. I just need to be careful...thank goodness for Pilates and heat packs! I hate missing class as I am a control freak at heart but something that always makes me proud is the feedback that I receive from my relief teachers about how well the students coped, their level of respect and consideration and behavi
