A Word From The Principal 24

I can't believe I am saying this but the end of term has finally arrived! What an absolutely interesting year this has been. Students learning at school, students learning remotely, teachers supervising at school and then working at home, it has been a whirlwind. 

We ended the year with Grade 6 Graduation on site with parents able to attend. We were so happy that this was the case. The graduation video is on our webpage.

Academic Excellence Awards and 2021 School Captain presentations were viewed by parents via Webex.

Christmas songs were performed by all grades and shown to parents via Webex.

Mr Bodley took a class photo of all grades with them emailed to parents for printing. Thank you for this Jeremy, it was not an easy task.

The grade 6 class went to the park, had pizzas and went bowling.
This all happened in the final week!

It is now time to take a break with our families, relax in the sun and prepare for a whole new year.

Take care everyone and have a wonderful Christmas and a well earned break.

2021 School Captains

It is always difficult to select our school captains and our current Grade 5 children did not make the selection of the 2021 School Captains any easier, but have made our decision. I would like to present to you........
School Captain- Islay KSchool Captain- Kyra L
Vice Captain- Levi BVice Captain- Melissa P

First Day of 2021

The first day at school in 2021 at Karingal Heights Primary School for all children will be on Friday 29th January.  Gates will open at 8:40am to allow for all the nice first day at school photographs to be taken. The bell will then ring at 8:55am so the children can enter their grade and begin their learning at 9:00am. For our new parents, don't forget that the school day ends at 3:15pm.

SWPBS Character design

KHPS would like to thank Brittany Hammond for her support in her role of providing art for SWBPS. Brittany Hammond volunteered to help make the student's designs for our SWPBS characters, into professional quality pieces. KHPS would like to thank her for the hours of hard work she put in and the wonderful artwork she gave us.

Please support those who support the school. If you have any design inquiries or know anyone who may need a custom design, Brittany would be able to discuss a range of options for you.

Christmas Songs

We have been asked by some parents if we can put a copy of the Christmas songs perfomed by the students on either our website, Facebook or Dojo. Unfortunately, due to media permission and privacy we are unable to do this. Thank you for your understanding.

2021 Foundation Parents

Our Foundation parents are invited to morning tea on Friday 29th January. After you have said goodbye to your child please make your way to our staff room to have a cup of tea or a cool drink and a nice biscuit. Tissues will be available if needed.

Helpful Elves

We have had some lovely helpful elves giving out Christmas cards this week. I love hearing the jingling bells coming down the corridor.
