I would like to acknowledge the terrific attitude of all of our students as our term is now well underway. Students are entering with a smile on their faces, demonstrating high levels of independence and are working hard in classes.
Phase 3 Restrictions
Please see attached for more information about what school processes will change given the State Government’s announcement about Phase 3 restrictions.
National Reconciliation Week
Our school acknowledged this week 27 May – 3 June. The theme for the week this year was ‘In this together’. Reconciliation is an ongoing journey that reminds us that, while generations of Australians have fought hard for meaningful change, future gains are likely to take just as much, if not more, effort.
Caralee CS has received a video presentation link from Mr Mark Ninyett, a decorated member of our Police Force and a representative and advocate for the Noongar community. We encourage you to take the time to view Journey of Health & Wellbeing.
The safety of your children around our school is a priority. Members of our school community have raised observations that we all need to be mindful around the school to watch out for students, park and drive respectfully. Thank you in advance for being safe.

What to expect when your child starts Kindergarten. Hello Kindergarten!
When your child starts school, you need to give the school your child's Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) history statement. (Source: Dept of Health)
As we draw to the end of Semester One, this is a friendly reminder to all our Kindy 2020 parents/guardians that a copy of your child's Immunisation History Statement is required by the school.
The Department of Education reports the immunisation status of our enrolled students to the Department of Health.
For those parents/guardians whose child is still yet to receive their 4 year old vaccinations as part of their catch-up schedule, please forward a copy of your statement to our Administration Office as soon as possible.
When your child starts school, you are now legally required to give the school your child's Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) history statement.
Why is immunisation important?
"Some diseases, like measles and mumps, can be very serious for children, and other people in the community.
In places where people are in close contact, like school, disease can spread fast". (Source: Dept of Health)
Parents and carers can access the AIR immunisation history statement by:
The Department of Health will follow up any statements that are ‘not up to date’.
Students without an ‘up to date’ AIR immunisation history statement may be advised to stay away from school if an outbreak of a vaccine preventable disease occurs.
Further information on obtaining a current statement can be found on the Department of Health’s website, along with additional information regarding Immunisations and Vaccines.

The Caralee band is continuing to practise their skills under the guidance of Mr Acott and myself. We are currently working on a Monkees’ classic, Steppin’ Stone. The song makes the students think of their maths programme, Stepping Stones and could lead to a few lyric changes in our version.
Year 1 and 2 students are currently focusing on rhythm and playing in time with un-tuned percussion instruments.
Year 3 students are learning about popular song riffs and performing them on the glockenspiel and keyboards.
Year 4, 5 and 6 students have begun working with the ukuleles. Students are currently perfecting their chord changes for their class’ song focus.

We are encouraging everyone with ideas to apply, from family teams, friends, community groups, school groups, individuals or groups of artists from hobbyist to professionals.
Our Caralee students certainly have an advantage having a School Dental Service permanently on site.
School Dental Service (SDS)
The School Dental Service (SDS) is a public health programme and provides free general dental care to students who attend a Western Australian Department of Education for recognised school aged children 5 to 16 years, or until the end of Year 11.
The SDS is delivered state wide through fixed and mobile dental therapy centres (DTC) co-located with some schools.
