Next week our Year 3 and 5 students will undertake the National Assessment Program- Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN)
NAPLAN tests skills that are essential for every child to progress through school and life. With the test results, teachers can tailor each child’s education more effectively.
NAPLAN is made up of tests in the four areas of:
- language conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation)
The best way to support your child is to encourage them to do the best they can do.
Please find below the schedule for testing dates over the next two weeks. We would appreciate if students are not late on these dates unless unwell.
Any queries, please contact Mr Van Der Meulen, Mrs Thompson or Mrs Kalajzic.
National Walk Safely to School Day
Our year 5/6 students ran a Mother’s Day stall at school Thursday and Friday this week. They sold potted succulents which were very kindly donated.
Students managed to sell all stock and made a profit of just over $150 which will go towards their camp in Term 3.
The winner of the Mother’s Day Raffle was Mr Smith who won a beautiful large bowl full of succulents also very kindly donated.
Our P & C have also been doing an amazing job yet again with their beautiful Mother’s Day Flowers. Thank you for all your hard work!
All orders will be available for collection on Saturday 8 May 9:30am – 11:30am from Curtin Primary School.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all our Curtin Primary School Mother’s, we hope you all have a lovely day on Sunday.
WA Wildlife Incursion – Pre Primary
This Term the Pre Primaries have been focusing on Recognising Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and how they care for living things. We have learnt about our native animals, their needs and wants, how to build them shelters and we even have our very own animal sanctuary in the classroom.
To add to our learning, we have arranged an incursion on Wednesday 12th May at 11am. WA Wildlife (formally trading as Native Arc) will be visiting the Pre-primary and bringing in some Native animals to show to the children.
WA Wildlife is a Native Animal Rehabilitation Centre, which was initially formed out of concern for the rescue, treatment and care of injured, sick, orphaned and displaced native wildlife. It provides medical care and rehabilitation services for approximately 4000 injured, sick and orphaned native wildlife each year.
Some of the animals the children may see and handle include Stimson’s Python, Wombat, Woma Python, Shingleback Lizard, Blue-tongued Skink, Brush tail Possum, Tawny Frogmouth, Kookaburra, Muir’s Corella and Alpine Dingo.
