Katitjiny – Week 2 – 04.05.2020

Week 2 – beginning Monday, 4 May 2020

Last week saw the return of approximately 60% of our students. This week we are expecting about 80% of our students to attend school. We had a wonderful three days and we are looking forward to welcoming back more children this week!

Please remember to check last week’s Katijiny for pick up/drop off locations and times. Please send us an email or give us a call if you would like your children to find their siblings before meeting you.

For those of you continuing the Learning at Home with Millen program please be reassured we are covering the same content at school to ensure continuity for all of our students. As well as the weekly learning programs being shared by the class teachers, please remember to look out for the Japanese, Art, PE, Music and STEM programs. There are plenty of interesting activities to choose from.

A few parents have asked whether the children are allowed to play during recess and lunch. The children are playing during the usual break times in their usual areas (with the exception of the covered senior play equipment on the oval). We are fortunate enough to have plenty of space for the children to spread out and play.


Our cleaners are now working during school hours and we have employed two new cleaners. Desks, chairs, handrails, door handles, equipment and the toilets are cleaned throughout the school day.

School Uniforms

At present, the uniform shop is not opening, but orders can be placed online via the Millen website:

Have a lovely week.
