Many parents have already responded to our quick survey emailed yesterday. Your responses will assist in our planning if we need to:
1. Return to a remote model of learning, and
2. Adjust our usual excursions for 2020.
Thank you for your input on these important issues and please contact me if you want to discuss either of these points more fully.
The Royal Far West have been supporting nine of our students with a program offering support in speech therapy and occupational therapyfor several weeks now. The program is delivered in our little library via zoom on a weekly basis. This is a pilot program for 2020 and we are fortunate to have been selected to be part of it.
We are really proud of our uniform at St Mary’s and students look very smart and also comfortable. Can all parents please ensure that their children are in winter uniform as per our uniform policy. Some students are wearing shorts and summer dresses regardless of the weather becoming very cold. Our uniform shop makes it easy for parents to access items and Ms Marsh and Ms Holland are always available to assist. Another gentle reminder that black school shoes are required for Tuesday to Thursday and girls navy pants should be worn Tuesday to Thursday as well, not track pants. We also have plenty of winter tunics available. If you need assistance with uniform please let us know.

National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country. Now in its 20th successful year, it is a colourful, vibrant, fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy, using an Australian children's book that explores age-appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum for Foundation to Year 6.
By facilitating NSS we aim to:
promote the value of reading and literacy,
promote the value and fun of books,
promote an Australian writer and publisher,
promote storytime activities in public libraries and communities around the country,
and provide opportunities to involve parents, grandparents, the media and others to participate in and enjoy the occasion.
