We are proud to inform you that we are producing a new eNewsletter format with Schoolzine. The purpose of moving to this new format is to engage the school community more effectively and provide parents, students and the community with a more effective and content-rich newsletter format. This new format can include videos, image galleries, online bookings, feedback forms, calendars, an app and much much more.
Please take to the time to install the New App on your Smart Phone or iPad from
http://www.schoolzine.com/szapp and subscribe.
Please note: that the skoolbag app will no longer be used after this term.
This week marks the final week of Term 2. I would like to congratulate the students and staff on their wonderful efforts throughout Semester 1 and wish everyone a safe holiday.
End of Term 2, Term 3 Commencement Dates
Term 2 finishes on Friday 5th July which is this Friday at 3.00pm. Term 3 commences on Tuesday 23rd July for students. All staff return on Monday 22nd July and the administration block will be open, but staff will be engaged in professional development all day.
Student progress reports will be issued tomorrow, 3rd July. This formal report is a summative assessment of the whole semester and is a half-way point in the ongoing assessment which will determine the end of year grades. A huge amount of work has gone into preparing these reports, starting with comprehensive assessments, moderated judgements, grading and written descriptions. These comments and grades have been edited twice for quality and readability, as well as ensuring that the written descriptions appropriately describe the grade. No parent should be surprised by what the reports contain as our staff work hard to communicate every child’s progress and achievement throughout the semester. Please remember, a “C” grade describes a student who is working at the expected level for that year level.
ACROD Parking Pays
As a community we need to work together and show the virtues of Care and Respect. A simple start is to not park in the ACROD parking bays unless you have a current permit displayed in your vehicle. A number of families need these spots and use them on a daily basis. It is very upsetting and difficult for them when other cars are parked in these bays. Please remember your personal responsibility and sense of compassion for others when parking around the school.
As communicated last week Ashley King is the permanent Principal for KPS and will start at the beginning of Term 3. Staff, students and the school community are extremely fortunate that we have secured the services of such a talented operator. Whilst I have loved leading the school for Semester 1, I am very excited to be working with Ashley as we move forward. I would like to sincerely thank the staff, students and community of KPS who have been simply phenomenal during my time at the helm of this wonderful school.
We are at present taking applications for Kindy for 2020 but we are nearly full. Please make sure you get your applications in otherwise you might miss out. The closing date for applications is 26 July 2019 unless full before.
Congratulations to the following students who received Merit Awards this fortnight:
Dontaé Elsdon, Lucas Marchese, Bailey Johnstone, Kyelan Parfitt, Savannah Allen, Harry Thompson, Kodie Davies, Hunter Butler, Kadyn Townsend, Scout Reely, Luke Newport, Forrest Pasian, Himaksh Patel, Ava Taylor, Violet Davis, Zeke Edwards, Caida Carter, Evie White, Xander Webb, Lucas Jury,Mikaylah Stuart, Louis Gualter, Oliver Thursby, Mackenzie Denham, Rhys Freeman, Jack Meyer, Joel Williams, Haami Duke, Ashton Morris, Taylah Halliburton, Madden Smith, Bella Bascombe, Kai Johnston, Brandon Bartlett, Mana Wells, Katie Emmerton, Crystal Timbers and Scarlett Zannella.
This fortnight our Core Virtue is: Excellence
Excellence is doing your best. It is giving your very best to any task you do or any relationship you have. Excellence is effort guided by a noble purpose. It is a desire for perfection. The perfection of a seed comes in the fruit. When you practice excellence, you bring your gifts to fruition.
I give my best to the work I do. I give my best to others. I dare to set noble goals. I choose excellence in all things.

The Canteen Team
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 (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.
Dental forms were given out to all Pre Primary students and all new students who have started this year. There are a lot that have not been returned to school. Please return them as soon as possible. If you have misplaced them, please could you call into the Australind Senior High School dentist to collect one or phone them on 9797 0266.
