Katitjiny – Week 6 – 15.11.2021

Week 6 – beginning 15 November, 2021

Millen Dads’ Campout

Thank you to Steve Ball and Steve Feast for organising another fantastic campout. I know a lot of time and effort goes into organising these events and it looked like a great success! I enjoyed looking at the photos in the P&C newsletter.

Bike Locks

Two more bikes were stolen last week during school arrival time (when the bike enclosure is open). This was in front of a teacher, a parent and our gardener. Luckily, Mr Geoff (the gardener) managed to get the bikes back. Please purchase a cable lock for your child’s bike if they do not already have one. Scooters can be kept in classrooms.

Parent Survey

A parent opinion survey will be sent out via email to all parents today. All public schools are required to survey their parents, staff and students every two years. You will be emailed a link to the survey and a personal access code.

The results will be shared with parents in a future edition of the Katitjiny and in the Annual Report 2021. The School Board will use the survey results to create a plan for improvements.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or feedback on this process.

End of Year Admin Housekeeping
  • Final accounts were emailed to families who had charges outstanding. We would be grateful if these could be paid by the end of November.
  • Many families who paid $6 for the STEAM incursion in Term 3 (which was subsequently cancelled due to Covid restrictions), still have that amount as credit on their child’s account. This credit will be carried over to the 2022 school year, unless you would like to Pay it Forward (a donation to the school to be used for students who are unable to pay for activities through the year). If so, please email .

If your child will not be returning to Millen in 2022, and you haven’t already advised us, please email


We’d love the Millen Community to donate an item or two for the Brightwater Christmas Appeal (box in office).  See attached information for details.
