31st January, 2020
I would like to extend a warm welcome back to everyone, especially our new students, parents and caregivers. Welcome to our wonderful school! I hope you all had a lovely break and spent some quality time with your families.
I would like to welcome our new Japanese Teacher, Ms Victoria Keranxi, who will be teaching this year while Mr Kumagai is on leave, and our new Special Needs Education Assistant, Ms Indry Ponto. Ms Jo Frost has returned from leave and will be teaching Year 2/3, Mr Russell Anderson has returned from retirement and will be teaching PE and Mr Mack Byron is now joining us full-time as a Year 3 teacher.
This is the first issue of our new weekly parent bulletin, the Katijiny. The Katijiny will be used to inform and remind parents of upcoming events and to notify parents of any cancellations or changes.
The Katijiny will be sent to parents each Monday morning. We hope this will help streamline the communication you receive from us. In the near future this will be sent via Connect. We will provide you with further information about this in the coming weeks.
The week 2 edition of the Katijiny will be sent with the following forms attached:
- Student Update Form
- Student Medical Form
- Student Consent Form
- Information regarding loading & updating Qkr!
- Information regarding Connect including consent form
- Student Invoices
We ask you to please find time to complete and return these as soon as possible.

We have been advised by the Department of Education that as an extra precaution, if a child has travelled to or through China or Hong Kong in the past two weeks, parents are asked to keep them away from school for a period of 14 days from the date they returned to Perth.
This is a precaution as the incubation period for this virus can be up to 14 days. After that time, and no symptoms, the student may attend school.
If you have any concerns about this virus please refer to the Department of Health2 website (ww2.health.wa.gov.au/coronavirus) where there is a factsheet for parents3 and access to a helpline 1800 300 243.
