Traffic Warden - River Road and Church Street
19/06/2018
14:45

Dear Parents, Caregivers

The Traffic Warden who works at the Children’s Crossing on River Road near Church Street is unable to work Tomorrow Afternoon, Thursday and Friday (Morning and Afternoon). Unfortunately  the Traffic Warden State Management Unit have no relief staff to cover the position.  Please take appropriate action. The  Police traffic Warden do send a police call to any unattended crossings but can’t guarantee the Police will show up.

The Traffic Unit will endeavour to provide a relief as soon as possible, however they can’t guarantee it.

Please inform your children to be vigilant whilst crossing without a warden.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Annual Parent Night
08/06/2018
7:55

Dear Parents,

This year, all teaching staff have been further increasing their use of Seesaw as a form of communication for reporting and celebrating your child’s progress and achievement.   We are very pleased with the high rate of participation by so many parents across classrooms who are enjoying receiving Seesaw notifications and being able to view the posts, make comments and re-view later.   This work by teachers to manage Seesaw occurs during class time and after hours.  We need to make sure as a community that teaching staff are not unnecessarily overloaded especially when it comes to duplication of work.

Over the last three months, the teaching staff have discussed the duplication of the work they are performing now with Seesaw and the work they have traditionally prepared for each Annual Parent Night.  That is, teaching staff were going to be doubling up and repeating what they are communicating through Seesaw.  The school has also noticed that parent participation at our Annual Parent Night over the last two years was steadily dwindling.

So, after a consultation with all teaching staff it has been decided to no longer conduct an Annual Parent Night.  The opportunity for a face-to-face meeting with your child’s teacher at any time of the year, will always remain by making an appointment.  Furthermore, the reasons for this change has been shared with the P&C and the School Board.

All staff are fully aware about ensuring Seesaw is regularly managed.  Please ensure you keep in contact with your child’s teacher about any concern by dropping in to have a quick chat, or for larger issues please make an appointment.  Also, if you are yet to connect with your child’s class via Seesaw, please see the teacher.

With your cooperation, we look forward to the use of Seesaw and parent-teacher meetings becoming a strong feature of the Kelmscott PS community.

If you have any concerns about this change please email Neil.Spence@education.wa.edu.au or phone 9390 8011. 

Regards,

Neil Spence

The Newsletter
16/02/2017
15:45

Dear All Parents

 

The parent newsletter has been published and circulated each fortnight for many years at Kelmscott PS.  With the addition of other communication tools such as email, the School App and school Facebook page we are communicating news and other information more regularly.  This expectation to be informed of school news more immediately through these technology tools is common across other organisations we are associated with.  We are also forming an expectation to receive smaller amounts of information more regularly.

 

Therefore, Kelmscott PS will publish a newsletter at the end of each term.  This termly newsletter will be a collation of events and celebrations that have occurred throughout the term.  Meanwhile we will inform you of issues, event information and provide reminders by using email, or the School App or the school Facebook page.  Furthermore, we will point you to our School Website so that you can easily refer back to information previously sent to you.

 

Our P&C has approved of this change and will also continue to use the school Facebook page, School App and School Website to inform our community of any P&C news.

 

We will monitor this change, however we anticipate this change will assist in the important process of communicating information with our school community.

 

Regards,

Neil Spence

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

The Treasure Hunters Lunchtime Bible Club at Kelmscott Primary School runs each Wednesday from 1:25pm to 1:45pm in the library by trained and accredited YouthCARE volunteers and comes to KPS in collaboration with Kelmscott Anglican Church.  The club is not compulsory and children from years one to six are welcome to attend. 

Treasure Hunters includes games, competitions, puzzles, drama, discussions and each week, a key story from the Bible.  The program is linked to and strongly supports the school’s moral compass.  YouthCARE club leaders are trained to be respectful of the diverse cultural and religious backgrounds of the all children. 

This year we will be looking at the Golden Rule (treat others as you would like to be treated), a topic called “Kids Can” (kids can do great things and make a difference), some Bible stories about King David and King Solomon, Bible stories about Jesus and at the right time of year, we will take a peek at what the Bible has to say about Easter and Christmas.

Further enquiries

More information about YouthCARE can be found on the website www.youthcare.org.au. If you require more information about the Treasure Hunters program please contact Meredith van der Klip on 9390 5351.

If you would like your child would like to participate in the Treasure Hunters Club please fill out the permission form attached to this email and return it to the CHAPLAIN’S LETTER BOX in the hall.  Treasure Hunters will commence on Wednesday 1st March.
