Parents / Guardians, today is the last day of Term 2 2019. The students will resume Term 3 on MONDAY 22 July 2019.
We thank Ms Paula Gomez for stepping into Year 2W so smoothly and wish her well for the rest of the year as she takes up a Year 2 position in Padbury Catholic Primary School. We also thank and say farewell Ms Renee Horton who has covered in the Year 2B class.
From extended leave we welcome back next term a refreshed Mrs Marilyn Day into Year 2B.
Ms Hester Alkemade will be taking a well deserved break until the end of this year, we wish her a relaxing break during her long service leave. We are looking forward to welcoming back Ms Lisa Wilson during this period.
Thank you also to Ms Isabel Stubber who is relieving in Pre Primary while Mrs Janine Bettenay is on leave.
Can I also take this opportunity to thank all staff and students for a wonderful term and wish you a safe and refreshing break over the next two week.
See you all next term.
As part of the school build, we had a number of desks that we superfluous to our needs and have currently been stored offsite. These will return to school next week and will be available to parents for a donation towards Lifelink on Wednesday 10 July from 10-12pm in the school carpark.
This will be on a first come first served basis.
We also will not have facilities for change so bring your actual donation with you.
Storage is a major issue for our school so we would love to have this older but still, quality desks find a new and loving home.
Today we acknowledged the beginning of NAIDOC Week celebrations and the end of our very busy school term with a Mass celebrated by Fr Wilson at the church.
The Pre-Primary classes joined us for their first school Mass and all students were very respectful and sang from their hearts! Miss Spadaccini would have been very proud of their efforts as were all the staff.
The St Kieran family is renowned for their open hearts when it comes to fundraising.
We are halfway through the year and we have enthusiastically participated in these events -

Carnevale Day - $ 462.95
A total of $ 2278.99 was raised for Caritas

A very special mention to Rebecca from 5W. Rebecca held a Lemonade Stall at her house to raise money for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation so that books can be available for ALL children in Australia. Rebecca raised $37.50 on her own. Thank you, Rebecca, for being a GIVER not a TAKER!

Next term all students at St Kieran will have the exciting opportunity to be a part of the 'Make a Move' Dance Program.
'Make A Move' is an exciting new dance program that focusses on empowering students with the skills to create their own unique dance showcase.
Director, Meagan Baronas, has combined her passion for dance with education. She is a qualified teacher who also has over 10 years experience working as a professional dancer, both interstate and overseas.
Each week, students will participate in dance lessons that follow the Western Australian Dance Curriculum. They will be taught how to create their own part of a dance, within a whole class dance. This will then be showcased next term on Open Night on Wednesday 18th September 2019.
