Dear Community,

Please read below for some start of year important dates and information.

As you will be aware, we are waiting for further information around what the start of the year will look like in schools across WA, and I will continue to update you as soon as a detailed plan is at hand. However, please see below for some things that are in place at the moment.

  • The School Office is open from Monday 24 January (closed Wednesday 26 January for Australia Day)
  • Class lists will be available from lunch time on Friday – another post will be sent once they are up with details of where and when. Please respect the privacy of our families and do do photograph these lists to post on any social media groups. 
  • Students start back on Monday January 31.
  • At this stage, there are no restrictions to parents coming onto the school site or into classrooms. No proof of vaccination is required for adults at school drop off or pick up, however masks are required to be worn by adults inside school buildings and classrooms at all times.
  • If you, or any families that you are aware of have been affected by the extended border closures and will not be able to attend from the start of term, could you please let the school office know.

Please look out for more posts that are made through the Skoolbag App over the next few days as we endeavour to keep you updated.

We are ready to embrace the adventures ahead this year and sharing it with our wonderful community!

Kind Regards,

Sarah Dawson
