Recently, students in Years 4 and 5 and staff voted to elect students to fulfil the following leadership roles in 2018 – Student Councillors, Faction Captains and Vice Captains.  The school will also be continuing the new leadership roles that were created this year with students being given the opportunity at indicating preferences to be in one of the following teams: ROC Reading Team, Environmental Team, Civics Team, Library Team, Playground Helpers Team and the Technology Team. Students who have been successful in being selected to one of the leadership roles will be announced and presented with their leadership badges at one of the first assemblies in 2018.

I am really looking forward to 2018, as we welcome back the students, parents and staff from the West Coast Language Development Centre for their second year as part of the Poseidon Primary community.  I am looking forward to once again working with the School Board, the staff and school community to continue building the reputation of PPS in the wider community so that we do become a school of choice in Heathridge.

The office will re-open on Wednesday January 24 and Thursday January 25 2018 and the students come back to school on Wednesday January 31, 2018.

Once again, I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and safe and happy New Year.

Student reports will be emailed home on Monday December 11.  Teachers have put a lot of time and thought into creating individualized reports that reflect the achievements made by each student this semester.  Please make the time to sit down and discuss your son or daughter’s report.

I would like to thank all parents who have assisted in classrooms and around the school throughout the year.  There are many programs in the school that would be extremely difficult to operate without parental assistance.  Invitations have been sent out to a thank you morning tea which is to be held on Friday December 8 in the staffroom.

A final reminder to all families, that on Friday December 8 we will be holding our Christmas Assembly.  This is one of the highlights of the year and will be followed by our annual Book Awards Assembly on Monday December 11, commencing at 9:00am.  The Year Six Graduation ceremony will be held on Monday December 11 commencing at 5:00pm.  I am looking forward to seeing lots of parents, grandparents and friends at both end of year events.

School commences again for students on Wednesday January 31 2018 and the office will open from Wednesday January 24 2018.

Enjoy the holidays with your children, have a lovely Christmas and we look forward to seeing you back at school next year.

The count down to the end of year has well and truly begun!  The Staff are well into the process of preparing the end of year reports for all students.  Teachers put a lot of thought and effort into creating individual reports that reflect the progress and achievements that each student has made during this semester.  Reports will be emailed home on Monday December 11 so that if you have any concerns about any aspect of your child’s report there is still time to make an appointment to discuss it with the class teacher.

Also on Monday December 11 we will be holding our annual Book Awards Assembly commencing at 9:00am.  The Year Six Graduation ceremony will be held on Monday December 11 commencing at 5:00pm.  I am looking forward to seeing lots of parents, grandparents and friends at the various end of year events.

This year our annual Christmas Assembly will be held on Friday December 8 commencing at 8:45am.  This will involve the Pre Primary students performing a nativity play and the singing of Christmas carols.

Can you believe it?  We are almost half way through the last term already!  Yesterday, the school had another very successful International Food Day.  Staff, students and parent volunteers prepared delicious food from New Zealand, France, Italy, Greece, China, Vietnam, Mexico and Australia.  The canteen also provided a one stop multi-cultural culinary experience which was enjoyed by many of our school visitors and students alike.  This has developed into a traditional event for our school that is very well supported by families and extended family members. Yesterday, it was wonderful to see so many families that make up our school community enjoying themselves with their children.

The afternoon concluded with our annual Lapathon on the oval.  It was wonderful to see the enthusiasm with which all students took part in this event. Sponsorship money can now be brought in and given to classroom teachers

At this time of year in the classrooms, it is reasonably intense for both staff and students.  Students have started completing a range of assessments that will be used by teachers to help them create the end of year reports that are due to be sent home on Monday December 11, 2017.
