From the Principal

Dear Parents and families,

Staffing

We welcome the following new staff members to our school community:

Miss Mollie Hills who will be working in Year 3 LA 25 Monday to Thursday (Ms Tamara Dominy will be in this room on Fridays and working in her Mathematics Support role from Monday to Thursday).

Mrs Megan Mileham will be backfilling Mrs Hannah Kelly’s position in LA 4 until the end of the year. Mrs Kelly will be on Maternity Leave.

Ms Amanda King (Education Assistant Mainstream) who will be working in LA 3 on Fridays.

Miss Rebecca Lohoar (Special Needs Education Assistant).
Miss Aimee Redmond (Special Needs Education Assistant).

COVID-19

If your child becomes an asymptomatic close contact, due to a person in your household being COVID-19 positive, they will no longer have to isolate for 7 days. They will be required to:

  • do a daily Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) and receive a negative result each day to attend school
  • wear a mask at school (for students in Year 7 and above) and when travelling on public transport or ride-share.

An additional supply of RATs will be supplied for all students and staff. We will let you know when you can collect the free RATs the state government is providing for all students. In the meantime, if your child becomes symptomatic or a household close contact, please contact us.

School activities are resuming with assemblies commencing in the later part of this term. We will also continue to follow COVID-19 safe measures:

  • all staff and regular workers (including regular volunteers) at school are double dose vaccinated (third dose vaccinated within one month of being eligible).
  • adequate ventilation in each classroom, in line with health advice.
  • enhanced cleaning remains in place.

If your child becomes symptomatic they should stay home and be tested for COVID-19. Refer to healthywa.wa.gov.au for information on close contact definition, testing and isolation requirements. You should notify the school if your child tests positive for COVID-19.

Legends of Landsdale- Cross Country

The annual Faction Cross Country event will be held this Friday, May 6 (and the weather looks perfect at this stage). This is a whole school event for students in years 1-6 and will be held during different times for each year group. The program along with parent information has been sent out to parents. We look forward to having parents and spectators back to cheer for our students.

Mothers’ Day Stall

Thank you to the P&C for the organisation of this for our students during this week. Mothers’ Day is this Sunday 8th May. We hope all mothers have a wonderful day and wish all our mums a very happy Mothers’ Day.

Kind regards,

Josh Jashari
Principal

We would like to congratulate Renae E from LA16 as she has been selected as a child cast member for the WA Ballet Alice in Wonderland Production at His Majesty's Theatre which is showing in May. We wish you all the best Renae.

Foster Care Information Session

Children require a safe place to live. At times, for a variety of reasons, living with family is not the safest option for all children. Department of Communities, Mirrabooka District, is seeking motivated, caring and nurturing adults who may be willing to attend a local information session to hear about becoming a foster carer. Foster carers often tell us that making the decision to help vulnerable children and young people and providing them with a loving home has been one of the best decisions they have ever made.

There are a number of foster care options available. Some are long term, full-time arrangements while other foster carers provide support for short term or short break placements. Foster carers come from all walks of life. You may be single, partnered or married, with or without your own children. As a foster carer, you would be supported by a dedicated Placement Officer.

Interested applicants would need to attend a fostering information session. We have sessions that will occur at the Mirrabooka District office and the Herb Graham Rec Centre in Mirrabooka on the following dates:

Information Sessions – 2022

Tuesday 5th April - 10am – 12pm - Mirrabooka District Office
Saturday 28th May 2pm - 4pm - Herb Graham Recreation Centre
Tuesday 14th June – 6pm – 8pm – Mirrabooka District Office
Wednesday 21st September – 10am – 12pm Mirrabooka District Office
Saturday 22nd October – 2pm-4pm – Herb Graham Recreation Centre

Kiss & Drive Announcement

After having remarkable success in 2021 with the new rostering system for our Kiss N Drive Program, we are continuing the program into 2022 and kicked off Term 1 with a bang!

Each Term has designated year groups for parents to volunteer for a session to help Kiss N Drive on that afternoon. Parents can forward plan their session into the year and change as required. The roster updates in real time which makes changes immediate thus allowing the roster to look after itself. A link to the roster is below.

As a thank you at the end of each term a raffle will be drawn to win one of two $10 vouchers to be redeemed at our fabulous canteen. Each time you volunteer, you gain an entry into the draw. And do not forget, you also have the use of a staff car park on the day you volunteer for Kiss N Drive.

Finally, a big Thank you to all the parents of Years 2 and 6 that contributed to the safe and smooth running of Kiss N Drive in Term 1 of 2022 and congratulations to Rebecca and Deanne each of whom are the winners of a $10 canteen voucher, woot, woot!

Over to the parents of Years 1 and 5 to make Term 2 a success. Sign up using the following link:
