From the Principal
Dear Parents and Carers,
We are almost half way through Term 2 and I am enjoying building relationships at Landsdale Primary School and getting to know more of our staff, students and community.
Last week I was fortunate to meet with the P&C on Wednesday evening and discuss many of the upcoming events, fundraising opportunities, focuses and history of the Landsdale P&C. I was really inspired by the level of support and dedication to our school from the P&C members. P&C meetings take place twice per term on Wednesday’s at 7:30pm in Weeks 3 and 7. If you would like to be involved, learn more about our school and the role our wonderful community play in enhancing opportunities for our students and wider community, please come along.
This Friday the 19th May is Walk to School Day however it is also another very important day. This Friday is also the 2023 P&C Day and this falls within the National Volunteers Week. This day is about celebrating the contributions of P&C members in schools and educational institutions. P&C Day started in 2019 and was celebrated by schools, parliament members, and other education stakeholders throughout Western Australia, with a range of different events being held to show appreciation for P&C members.
If you see our P&C members on Friday please say an extra thank you and celebrate them. I look forward to continuing to work closely with the P&C into the future.
Thank you from all the staff and students at Landsdale Primary School!!

Walk to School Day
Friday 19th May is 'Walk to School Day'. We are encouraging all students and families to walk to school on this day. We are setting up some walking stations around the community to walk to school together. We will have a staff member at the following designated points at 8.10am ready to walk to school in a group. Landsdale shopping centre-near the pharmacy to meet Mrs Bracegirdle (2), the top end of Warradale Park (Snake Lake- corner of Warradale Tce & Coverwood Prom) to meet Ms Woodhouse (1) and at Southmead roundabout corner of Sandison Way to meet Mrs Mattock (3). Each student who walks to school will go into a draw for an icy pole from the canteen. Looking forward to walking to school together on the 19th.
Ride, Scoot, Walk!
The results from our first Your Move active transport survey Year 1-6 are below - you may like to discuss these results with your children. We hope to increase students active transport to school over the year, so look out for our upcoming activities and promotions. We will complete another survey in Term 4 to assess our impact.
Tender of Skope Vertical Display Chiller
Landsdale Primary School has a Skope 980lt vertical display chiller with 2 glass doors and top mounted motor, available for purchase by tender. The item was purchased in March 2021 and will be sold in “as is” condition. Members of the school community can place a tender. The purchaser will need to take into consideration the cost of removing the condenser unit off the top prior to removal from the canteen for transporting. All tenders must be handed into the school office in a sealed envelope, marked confidential and addressed to Jacqui Lyons, Manager Corporate Services. Tenders close at 3.30pm on Friday 26th May. The successful tender will be notified by Friday 2nd June.

Legends of Landsdale
Congratulations to all of our students who put their best foot forward in the Legends of Landsdale Cross Country event in Week 2. It’s not an easy trek but we saw some fantastic efforts throughout the school.
I’d like to give a special mention to Isabella P (Yr 5) & Tyler B (Yr 6) who took out the fastest school times with Isabella winning the award for the 2nd year in a row.
Monday Morning Running Club
Congratulations to Mitchell R for reaching the 200 lap milestone in our Monday Morning Running Club and Koen M for reaching the 100 lap milestone.
P&C News – Roadwise
Each term has designated year groups for parents to volunteer for a session to help Kiss N Drive in the afternoon. Parents are able to forward plan their session into the year and change as required.
Please note that the Kiss N Drive is not just the responsibility of the school, the Kiss N Drive is outside school grounds and is not the responsibility of the school to run, that's where parents and volunteers come in.
The roster updates in real time which makes changes immediately allowing the roster to look after itself.
A link to the roster is below. The Roadwise Committee will do the first week of each term as we return to school. Thursday of the first week will double as a training session for those who wish to see how easy it is before you do your own.
All parents participating that term will go into a raffle to win one of two $10 vouchers for the canteen and don’t forget you also have the use of a staff car park on the day you volunteer for Kiss N Drive. If you find it as easy as you thought it would be, roster in for a second or third session for more entries into the draw!!
This was Kiss N Drive's first major change to how it’s been run in the school’s 24 year history and has been running for a couple of years now. The committee was so excited to spread the word and see this grow year on year after much planning and to have it be so successful was an extra win.
Now it’s over to the parents of 2023 to help even ‘just once’ to make it a success.
Contact our Roadwise Coordinator for any questions on firstname.lastname@example.org

Emergency lunches happen from time to time and we will never let a student go hungry. If your child comes home with a note from the canteen, the amount can be paid cash the next day or on Qkr via the accounts to pay menu.

Ellenbrook Fencing Club
Ellenbrook Fencing Club is a not for profit sporting club, that teaches the Olympic sport of epee fencing. We are a small but modestly successful Club and the only fencing Club in the City of Swan and surrounds.
We have had a lot of success at State level, with teenagers and primary school students. In fact, last year, our students were the State u13 boys epee champion, the State u13 girls epee champion and the State u15 girls epee champion!
We train at Priestley Hall at Guildford Grammar Preparatory School, on Tuesday 5.45-7.15pm and Saturday 9-11am.
We are offering Landsdale Primary School students and staff a $15 per session discount from our normal Club session price (so pay $15 instead of $30), for the first 4 weeks. You would just need to mention that you are coming to the Club because of the SCHOOL’S PROMOTION. Just call or text Bruce on 0413688300 to make arrangements.
City of Wanneroo – Bin Sticker Competition
Following on from the success of previous years’ “Bin Sticker Competition” we are excited to invite students at your school to participate in our upcoming design competition. The competition is open to all students and aims to encourage creativity, environmental awareness, and community involvement.
The competition requires students to plan, design and create a persuasive poster that will be turned into bin stickers for bins in the parks and along the coast. This project provides a fantastic opportunity for students to showcase their artistic talents and demonstrate their commitment to environmental responsibility. It is also a great way to engage students in a fun and meaningful activity that supports their academic growth.
Please see the attached poster. The size of the sticker will be A3 in size, so you may choose to either print off the template in this size, or complete as an A4 and we will do the enlarging.
Entries close 5pm, Wednesday 19th July 2023.
