Prayer to begin a New Semester
Lord, as we prepare for the coming of a new semester, make us ready, attentive and available to hear you. Thank you for the gift of being able to rise each day with the assurance that You walk through it with us. Thank you for the gifts of creativity and uniqueness, and the energy to put them to good use. May all that we are today, all that we try to do today, may all our encounters, reflections, even the frustrations and failings all be place in Your hands. May the work we do and the way we do it, bring new hope, new life, and courage to all we come in contact with this semester. We thank you, Lord.
The 2021 STEAM Night of the Notables
Last Thursday night, our Year 5 and Year 6 STRIVE students wowed us with an amazing Night of the Notables. The students took the audience on a journey to meet some of history’s greatest figures and present-day heroes. The night was the product of a term’s hard work. The students’ presentations, costumes and table displays were outstanding. Congratulations, Notables!
Term 3 Curriculum Outlines
The Term 3 Curriculum Outlines are now posted to SEESAW. Please take the time to read the outlines and discover what your child will be learning in Term 3. The Outlines provide key learning outcomes and link to the West Australian curriculum.

A Reminder to Keep Unwell Children at Home
As we begin a new term, and in particular during the COVID period, we feel that it is a good time to review school procedures in regards to children who are unwell at school. If your child is unwell, it is imperative that they are kept home from school. A child who is unwell will not be able to perform well in school and is likely to spread the illness to other children and staff.
Please do not send your child to school if he/she is unwell, such as:
- A fever in the past 24 hours
- Vomiting in the past 24 hours
- Diarrhoea in the past 24 hours
- A bad cold, with a very runny nose or bad cough, especially if it has kept the child awake at night.
- Head lice – live bugs or nits (lice eggs)
- A rash
If your child becomes unwell at school and the teacher or school feels the child is too sick to benefit from school or is contagious to other children, you will be called to come and take him/her home from school. Following these procedures are meant to serve the best interests of all the children and staff in our school. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the School Office.
SHPSH STEM HUB
As part of their weekly Science Lessons, students in Years 5 and 6 take turns to be the STEM Designer of the Week. This STEM activity sees our students follow the SHPSH Design Process to solve an inquiry. The students then present their research, planning and design models to the class. Check out the work of some of our impressive SHPSH STEM Designers so far this year!
