Stage 1 of the rebuild is moving along nicely

The kindergarten block is at lock up stage and the landscaping and brick paving has commenced.

The Year 2/3 block is at plate height now and sits up high on the hill, the year 1 block will be along them. A walkway will connect this block to the Year 4/5 and 6, 2 story building.

Building Progress- Wow it goes up fast

The new Kindergarten and Teaching Block are progressing. We are now looking at an

early Term 3 transition to these buildings. This delay has been caused by final fit-out

supply issues.

Partnering with Bunnings Wangara

Thanks to Lily Rose from Bunnings Wangara for meeting with us and donating 50 drumming buckets for our school drumming program.

Bunnings are also keen to help us with our sustainability and cultural initiatives.

The new Early Childhood building has bricks.

It was very exciting to arrive at work and see the bricks for the rebuild be delivered. At lunchtime the Preprimary students were very excited to see that some walls had already been build.

I wonder what it will look like after the holidays?

Bricks arriving
We have walls.

Story Dogs Fundraiser

On Friday 4th March 2022, we held our Story Dogs fundraiser. Students came in free dress, with a splash of orange and donated a gold coin. HPS raised $600.00 for this wonderful charity and the work they do. A special thanks to Mrs Nicholson for organising this event.

Our Story Dogs come in every Friday and students read to the dogs and practice their literacy skills.

Joondalup Festival Artworks

The Joondalup Festival being held down at Hillary Marina has some of our Year 1-6 students artwork. If you get a chance to go down and have a look it is on from 11th March -2nd April.

Masks must be worn by all students in Year 3-6

Thank-you to all our parents, carers and community members who continue to support our school’s COVID-19 safe measures.

As announced by the WA Government, students from Year 3 to Year 6 are required to wear masks whilst at school in all indoor areas from Thursday  3rd March. Please send you child to school with a mask from tomorrow if they are in those years. It is optional for students from K-2 to wear a mask.

If you are unable to source a mask for tomorrow the school has limited supplies of disposable masks.

It is a requirement that all students in the Year 3 – 6 cohort wear a mask , with exemptions only permitted for students who provide a medical certificate from a GP or psychologist. Any student who does not have a medical exemption will be given a mask to wear whilst in class. If a student refuses to wear a mask, parents will be contacted and asked to collect their child.

If you need any further clarification on this matter please contact the Department of Education.

Thank-you again for your support,
