Principals Welcome Week 9 Term3

Dear Parents and families,

The term has certainly flown by.

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending camp with Neela and Cooper (and the Mallee School Year 5 and 6’s). The behaviour of all students was superb. As always, the students were respectful to everyone around them and so willing to engage 100% in all activities. The teaching staff that attended the camp were certainly proud of every single student.

A huge thank you to Mrs Stirk, Mrs Giliomee and Mrs Sills for making the camp run smoothly. Also, a big thankyou to the staff at Point Walter who looked after us for the three days.

As Term 4 approaches, I would like to introduce you to Miss Martino as the Principal of Scaddan Primary School for Term 4. Miss Martino currently works at Como Primary School in Perth. I know that Miss Martino will have a fantastic time as Principal of Scaddan Primary School.

To the whole community I would like to say thank you for all of your support over 2020. Have an amazing Term 4 and I look forward to seeing you all in 2021.

Take care,

Thank you so much to the Junior students for their assembly. We all really enjoyed your performance based on ‘The Wrong Book’ by Nick Bland. It was very funny and we were all impressed by the way that you all expressed yourselves clearly.

Principals Welcome

As a school, we are required to work towards improving the attendance of our students. There are a so many important reasons why your child needs to attend school regularly.  By regularly, we mean above 90% of the time (no more than five absent days per term).  Of course there are always exceptions to this when children need to take time off school for perfectly acceptable reasons.

What should I do if my child is away from school?

  • Please let the school know at the earliest convenience, either by phone or email.
  • If your child is going to be away for more than three days, please let the school know by phone or email.
  • Send a note with your child to explain why your child was away.

Influenza Vaccination Program for Primary School Aged Children
