Year 5/6 News
Year 5/6 students are making every day count in Term 4!
We have just started swimming lessons, art for All Saints Day, Scottish dancing, writing and following a variety of procedural texts, and engaging in economics and business lessons through MAPPEN as well as many more activities.
On Friday last week, we were fortunate to have Garnduwa Young Men's Leadership Program help us with our football and basketball skills. Here are some photos to showcase some of our many talents.
Pre-Primary is in full swing for a jam-packed Term 4. Last week we had an exciting phone call from Santa at the North Pole, who rang to make sure we were all busy with our work.
Our literacy unit this term is focused on writing letters. Our Post Office is currently operating and, through participation in purposeful and playful learning experiences, it provides them with the tools to actively engage in play, and to make sense of the world around them. We look forward to writing and posting our letters to the North Pole next week!

St Joseph’s School is a Nut Awareness Zone
We have a student who has a touch-sensitive, life-threatening nut allergy. Please do not send nut products to school in recess or lunch boxes. This includes peanut butter, Nutella and many muesli bars.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Canteen Volunteers Wanted
Miss Kris is looking for parents or friends of the St Joseph’s community who may be able to lend a hand. As they say, many hands make light work! If you can assist in any way, please have a chat with Kris or the Principal.
St Joseph’s School Uniforms
At St Joseph’s School we take great pride in our appearance. The school uniform is also an important aspect of child health and safety. It is a requirement that all students wear a St Joseph’s uniform (including a hat with our logo) that is purchased from our uniform shop. Similar items bought elsewhere may not be worn to school.
Please note that our “no hat, no play” policy will be enforced.
See our website for a full range of uniform items.
Uniforms may be purchased at any time from our office.
Praying the Rosary
Sr Marcella will lead us in one decade of the rosary each Friday at 7:35am on the grass outside the administration building. Please feel welcome to join us for five minutes of prayer.
New Enrolment Policy
The West Australian School Education Act (1999) stipulates that information about immunisation status and date of birth must be supplied when applying to enrol at school. As of 2018, a child’s birth certificate and immunisation documents must be provided before they can commence their schooling at St Joseph’s.
Thank you for your cooperation.
