Early Childhood Fairy Garden

Early Childhood Fairy Garden

Today our very special garden committee volunteers have installed a ‘Fairy Garden’ in the Early Childhood Centre.

A special thank you to Annette and Garth who have given their time and expertise to bring this project to life.

Stage 1 is now complete with the installation of the raised garden bed, stepping stones and mulch.

Stage 2 which involved planting out the garden will be done shortly.

Here is our progress so far…

Soccer Goal Posts and Perth Glory Clinics

Soccer Goal Posts and Perth Glory Clinics

In response to student and parent surveys in 2018, Spearwood Primary School has installed Soccer Goal Posts on the small oval.

We have received a Sporting Schools Grant and have secured a coach from the Perth Glory for 4 sessions commencing August 27.

Spearwood Primary School welcomed author Mark Greenwood to talk with students about the process of story writing and the adventure that is exploring history.  Mark showcased his children’s books and shared anecdotes about his life and the inspirations for his stories.  All of Mark’s books are available to borrow from the school library.

Jars Needed!

Next semester our school will have a fundraising stall at the Cockburn Rotary Spring Fair. We are requesting donations of small – medium clean glass jars to use for our Lucky Jar items. If you have any jars that you are able to donate, please bring them to the office. Thank you.

Crunch n Dip

Crunch n Dip

To celebrate the final NAPLAN test and encourage students to bring Crunch’n’Sip to school we had a wonderful Crunch’n’Dip morning tea on Thursday. The rainbow colours of the vegies were amazing and made it all so much fun to share with our friends at recess time. The popularity of these morning teas is a good indication that our students are keen to eat healthy as they devoured the crunchy treats. Please remember that students are having to wait a bit longer for their morning tea with the new timetable trial so a small container of easy to eat, chopped fruit or veg will help them re-fuel to assist their physical and mental performance as well as concentration in the classroom.

Thanks to Kim and Shane Clarke for their help chopping up the vegetables in time for recess.

Consent2Go Reminder

Parents and carers are reminded that Spearwood Primary School uses Consent2Go for excursions and incursion permission. The system has replaced our paper process for obtaining parent permission and consent.

There is no username or password required to use the system. All information is stored in accordance with the Australian privacy requirements.

You will be asked to update your contact details and your child’s medical and allergy information. This only needs completing once; parents can then easily update and change details if required through the system.

The school will also use the system to collect payments from parents for excursions. Parents may also attend the school and pay in person if they prefer.

Consent2Go is being introduced to improve the process for parents by providing the school with the most up to date information regarding their child’s medical or other related information. This greatly improves the school’s ability to manage school excursions and events.

Please contact us if you require more information.
