It was great to start here at Kingston Primary School last Monday and my first week was a very smooth one as expected. I would like to thank the community for the warm welcome that I received.
Of course the first day of term was a pupil free day and our team used this time to participate in some professional learning in Maths as well as an interesting conversation around the direction of how we teach handwriting. It was a busy day, but a most beneficial one for our staff.
I would like to give special mention to Tanya Uren who has been the Principal of Kingston for the last six months. Tanya and I have had the opportunity to catch up a couple of time before the start of term to discuss the “need to knows” before I started. Tanya has been doing an excellent job leading the school this year. I commend her on her leadership and am very thankful for the comprehensive handover. I am looking forward to working with the leadership team and as I said earlier, we have made a great start.
Quite clearly Kingston is a very well run and organised school with excellent community support and I am looking forward to being part of this great team.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
On the day we had some top results with Max Campbell placing 4th in his year 3 race, Sebastion ‘Bash’ Murray placing 2nd in year 4 and Kyla Robinson placing 3rd in year 5.
On the day the results recorded meant we had finished 3rd overall as a school, but after receiving the official score sheets back, I noticed a mistake had been made and one of our runners had been added to Picton PS.
So once this score had been added to our score it meant we had WON!!!!!
So for the 3rd time in our 11yr history we have won the Interschool Cross Country Shield.
Well done to all the students for a great day and the teachers who assisted on the day.
Congratulations to the following students who received Merit Awards this fortnight:

This fortnight our Core Virtue is : Honesty
Being honest is being open, trustworthy and truthful. When people are honest, they can be relied on not to lie, cheat or steal. Honesty is telling the truth. It is admitting mistakes even when you know someone might be angry or disappointed. Being honest means that you don't pretend to be something you are not. With honesty, you can trust things to be as they appear.
For those of you that have never attended/or heard of Chin Wag, any parents or carers who are:
- New to the area
- May feel isolated
- Have a partner who works away/shift worker
- May have some ideas on how we can extend our support to families
- Or you may just have some spare time and would love a 'cuppa and a chat'
We meet each Wednesday morning at 8.45am - 10.15am for morning tea. You will find us in the OSH Club room, T9 (Demountable building next to oval). We would love for you to come and join us in a friendly laid back environment. We look forward to meeting some new faces and catching up with the regular Chin Wag crew.
Congratulations to the following students who were nominated for Cupcakes for Caring :
Kael O'Byrne, Violet Davis, Mystique Fraser, Brodie Pearce, Taj Clarke-Cheek, Hope Barasa and Pippa Spicer.
Mischa Francis's story:
Last year I did a try out to be part of the Kanga Cup Soccer Carnival over in Canberra. I was lucky enough to be selected for the team and have been training hard for the past 6 months. Through the school holidays we made our way over to Canberra to compete in the 2019 Kanga Cup. There was just over 300 teams all up at the cup, only 2 Western Australian teams went over which was under 13’s girl team and also an under 12’s boy team. We played 8 games and even competed against Nation Premier League teams. The competition was very strong but we were lucky enough to make it to the semi finals but unfortunately we were knocked out by the top team. It was a great experience and I have come a long way as a soccer player learning new skills and making great friendships along the way. I really enjoyed my time over in Canberra and would love to do it again. Soccer rules!!!!
A very big thank you to Fergie's Total Lawn Care who were our Term 2 WHAM sponsors
Congratulations to Hope Barasa who was the lucky winner of the scooter and helmut supplied by Fergie's.
Thank you to everyone who donated to our 5c challenge. This money is going straight to our next project which is a Junior Nature Playground. We raised $425.15 and the best jar award went to T2. Well done to everyone.
** Just a reminder that the canteen is open 5 days a week
from 8.30am to 2.00pm **
Hi Everyone, My name is Roz Stubna and I am your new Canteen Manager.
I have some exciting new happenings over the next couple of weeks. We are bringing out a new menu and I really do hope you like it. I have tried some different foods with the students this week for recess and lunch and they have said they like it.
Thank you for letting me find my feet for my first week and I have enjoyed seeing the students.
We are always looking for volunteers. Please come and talk to me in the Canteen if you can come in for an hour or two.
Please see below our new canteen menu:
A fun fact
A bunch of bananas is called a hand.
Thank you Roz
The uniform shop is open Monday - Thursday 8.30 - 9am
Eftpos is available
We have a good range of second hand uniforms available at the moment for $5 each. Thank you to everyone who has donated polo’s, jumpers, also a few Long Pants, Skorts and Shorts too so far this year - all proceeds go directly to the P&C to improve our school facilities.
Please also check that all clothing items and hats are clearly labelled with your child’s first and last name as this makes it much easier to return items to your child if they end up in Lost Property. I do go through the Lost Property once a week and unfortunately there has been heaps of clothing not labelled.
With all this raining weather and you want to keep the kids as dry as possible, our Black Rain Jackets are back in stock, in all sizes.
I know it’s early to think about but Sports Carnivals Junior and Senior will be here before you know it, we are fully stocked up with your sports colours now, so get in before they sell out. Kid’s shirts are $25 and we do have some Adult sizes too for $26. Don’t forget we also have Sport Colour Hats available for $10.
The uniform shop is run by volunteers and is open Monday – Thursday from 8.30 – 9.00am. We are not open on Friday. Alternatively, you can order uniforms online at www.quickcliq.com.au and they will be delivered to your child’s classroom.
