Welcome back to Term 2

The students arrived at school armed with their smiles and enthusiasm ready to start another term. Staff are refreshed and rejuvenated after a very busy Term 1.  It has been fantastic hearing about everyone’s adventures during the break but now it’s back to business.
There are a couple of events this week to put into your calendar :
– Assembly this Thursday will be hosted by TA 6, all families are welcome to head down to the undercover area to enjoy the show.
– Beeliar PS ANZAC Service will be held this Friday next to the flag poles at 9:00am. Parents, families and community members are encouraged to attend. We respectfully request that each family provide a flower for their child on Friday morning to be added to class bouquets.

Hygiene in School

On the Parent Information Night a number of parents approached the school about soap dispensers in the Year 1-6 toilets. We have found that having soap in the toilets can create some dangerous situations for the students, for example when the soap is dropped on the floor etc.

As an alternative to soap, the school is providing bottles of sanitiser to each classroom. Children will be encouraged to wash their hands with water and then use the sanitiser as they re-enter their classroom. This practice will commence on Monday 16 March. In addition, teachers are happy for children to keep wet wipes or their own sanitiser in their tray or school bag for personal use.

We thank you for your support.

Parent Information Night

A parent information night will be held tonight,  Wednesday 18 February 2015 from 5:00pm – 7:00pm. There will be a staggered timetable so that parent/carers can attend as many classroom meetings as they would like. Each teacher will give a short presentation and the remainder of the time will provide parents/carers with and opportunity to talk informally with their child’s teacher. This is and information night for the school and teachers to share sheer practices with you, it is not a time for formal interviews between parents and teachers. Please note: Kindergarten teachers are conducting separate meetings with the parents of their students.
