Message for Kindergarten Parents and Carers
21 Feb 2019
Dear Kindergarten Parents and Carers,
Due to circumstances beyond our control the Kindergarten Canteen Excursion needs to be postponed from tomorrow until next Thursday, 28 February.
Ms Wilson apologises to all Kindergarten students as they have been looking forward to this excursion with great excitement. Please try to keep that excitement going for another week.
Gifted and Talented Education - GATE
21 Feb 2019
Included in the last newsletter (11 February) there was information regarding a Certificate of Gifted Education Course - GERRIC.
Within this information we asked for parents' permission to have an additional Staff Development Day (SDD) at the beginning of Term 2 so all our teachers at WPPS would be able to complete this intensive course to enhance your children's learning. This would mean that the students would come back to school on Wednesday 1 May and there would be no SDD in Term 3 - children would return to school on Monday 27 July.
A decision needs to be made by next Tuesday 26 February. Would you please send a quick email to the school firstname.lastname@example.org as to whether or not you approve of this change.
Just a reminder that the Uniform Shop will not be open this afternoon Tuesday 19 February as previously stated in the last Newsletter.
Staff Car Park
18 Feb 2019
Dear Parents and Carers,
It has come to our attention that pedestrians are walking through the staff car park. For everyone's safety we ask that you please refrain from using the staff car park to enter/exit the school grounds.
Please set a good example for our children and follow our school expectations of being safe.
Many thanks for your cooperation

Don't forget to purchase your tickets for the Welcome Night, Friday 22 February (straight after Meet the Teacher).
Please note that this invite is for ALL parents and carers not just kindy. It is a great chance to meet other parents as well as chat to some of the teachers.
Thank you to everyone who applied to join our STEM and Robotics Team. We received over 40 expressions of interest! We have given students who have made the team a permission note today. Please fill it out and returned it to Miss Yee prior to our first session starting next Monday (Week 4).
Criteria for joining the team was firstly age based with preference given to older students who were interested. We then looked for students who displayed an interest in and knowledge of the creative and critical thinking skills we will be exploring in our sessions.
Thank you for your applications and please don't forget to bring in your notes!
