From the Acting Principal

Mr Steven Noble’s Appointment to Alinjarra Primary School

Steven Noble has been promoted to a level 5 Principal position at Alinjarra Primary School. After nine years as Principal at Glendale we would like to wish him the best of luck in his new position. Steven takes up the new position next term so will not be returning to Glendale. I will continue in the role of acting Principal until the position is advertised next term and a new Principal is appointed.

Scitech

A big thank you to all the members of the P&C and school community for an enjoyable event at Scitech.  A special thank you to Kimberley Russell, Julia Boardman and their team on the events committee for dedicating their time to arrange the evening. The Glendale Community thank you. On the evening I was taking pictures of all the children having fun and engaging in Science concepts and have attached these to the newsletter.

Open Night

What a wonderful turn out we had for open night. Thank you to all the staff and parents that attended. It was fantastic to interact and see so many parents at the STEM presentation. We have attached some photos of open night that Mr Marsden took in the engineering room.

Canteen Naming Competition

Congratulations to Chanel Keenan from room 18 who won the name the canteen competition. The new name for the canteen is the Snack Shack because it sounds cool and the canteen has yummy snacks. Chanel will receive her prise at the nest assembly in week 10.

Room 16 Assembly

Next week Miss Wilson’s class will host the last assembly of the term. We extend an invitation to all parents and guest to the assembly to join Miss. Wilson and members of the administration team in the staff room for morning tea straight after the assembly.

Perimeter Fencing

Our school has been allocated funding for a new perimeter fence as part of the 2019/2020 Perimeter Security Fencing Program. Details of the fence will be discussed with the school in the new financial year. We have been informed the fencing will be around the building and not the oval. Thank you to Michelle, our Manager of Corporate Services for her efforts in making this happen for our school.

A reminder that the colour run is on Wednesday. Please get your donations in as all proceeds are going towards our senior playground. The colour fun run starts at 2.30pm starting with an assembly in the undercover area. Students will not go back to classrooms after the run.

All applicants will be advised if they have been successful in securing a place in our 2020 Kindergarten program by 9 August 2019.

Late Pick Up

Teachers will be reminding children that if they are not picked up after waiting 10 minutes to come to the office. Can you reinforce this at home and explain the safety concerns of waiting in the playground unsupervised. Please make sure we have the correct emergency contact details in the office as we will ring all contacts listed if we cannot reach you. Please be aware that if you contact the office close to the bell we may not be able to get the message to your child before the end of the day. In an emergency or unexpected circumstance that results in a late pick up we will make every effort to make sure your child is aware of this and remind them to wait in the office.

WAGSMS

The WA Government Schools Music Society Concert is on August 1 at the Crown Theatre. We are hosting the evening and performing the finale. Please make sure you get your tickets form Ticket Master if your child is performing. Mrs. Paul will be sending home details of the night shortly to the families involved.

Changes to Cross Country

Cross country has been moved to Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 of August which is week 3 next of next term. The event starts at 9am.

Assembly Changes

Please be aware that due to the Roald Dahl performance and the interschool sport carnival we have had to move two assemblies next term. Mrs. Taylor’s room 4 will now host the assembly in week 5 (21 August) and Ms Wheeler’s room 18 class moves back to week 9 (18 September). Unfortunately, we have no control of the interschool carnival or the date offered to the school for the Roald Dahl performance.

Parking in the Staff Carpark

Unless you have prior permission to park in the staff carpark please use the kiss and go or parking around the school during pick up and drop off time. We have limited bays and it is a safety issue when students are making their way to and from school.

Reports

Mid-year semester reports will be sent home to parents on Tuesday. If your child is absent the class teacher will hold the report and pass it to the office at the end of term.
