While the Western Australian Department of Education supply text materials, work books and some art resources, parents are required to provide items such as pencils, pens, some text books, rulers and so forth. It may be necessary to replace some consumable items throughout the year as the need arises.
Separate lists of the requirements for each class will be issued at the end of the year for the following year, or on arrival at school in the new year, for newly enrolled students. It is important that all items are labelled clearly.
To develop habits of neatness and pride of work, it would be appreciated if parents would cover all books in which written work will be done by the child throughout the year.
Change of Contact Details
It is vitally important that we can contact a child’s family. Please advise the school know if you change your home, work or emergency address or phone number.
Where possible we appreciate a few days’ notice if you intend transferring to another school, so that belongings can be collected and library books returned etc. On admission to the new school, a transfer note will be sent to us advising of the student’s enrolment and their date of commencement. The student’s records will then be forwarded to the new school.
