Good evening St Emilie’s Families
At 8:15 pm tonight the Premier announced a 4 day lockdown for the Perth and Peel regions commencing at midnight tonight.
This announcement follows a further case of community spread reported this evening.
This is an evolving situation, however hopefully with good community cooperation WA can get on top this situation again.
Schools have been instructed to remain open, especially to cater for those parents who are emergency workers or service providers.
The Premier acknowledged that as with previous lockdowns, parents may choose to keep their children at home for the remainder of the week (or in our case, Tuesday and Wednesday, as we have Pupil Free Days on Thursday and Friday anyway).
If you choose to bring your children to school:
– Year 1-6 parents MUST use drive through.
– Kindy and PP parents can use drive through or walk children in – however MASK WEARING is compulsory.
If you decide to keep your child at home, please email your child’s teacher explaining that this decision is due to the COVID lockdown and /or because of your work commitments.
· Schools will remain open
· Parents may choose to keep their children at home, as with the previous lockdowns.
· Requirements for mask wearing remain unchanged.
Thanks everyone and stay safe!
As you will be aware, the Government has announced a return to Stage 1 COVID restrictions from noon today.
Please note that:
· Schools will remain open
· A three-day restriction period will apply for Perth and Peel region
· Masks are mandatory indoors and on public transport from noon today.
· Private gatherings restricted to 30 people
· Events with large crowds will be postponed
· The two-square-metre rule has been reintroduced with numbers capped at 150 people
· Heightened cleaning requirements have been reinstated.
We would ideally only want to see Kindy and PP families onsite for the next three days and you must wear a mask. All other families are asked to please use the DRIVE THROUGH. While it isn’t the end to the term we had hoped for, rest assured we will take good care of the children and finish the term off well! Take care everyone!
Welcome back to another busy term!

We love reading stories in Year One!
This week we looked more closely at the story Edwina the Emu by Sheena Knowles and used this story to complete a variety of activities.
We learnt 3 new vocabulary words while enjoying this story…announce, perfect and require. We wrote some great sentences using these words!
We put our super sentence writing to the test and wrote our own mini retells of the story! We had to think about the beginning, middle and end of the story. Super sentences make sense, use punctuation correctly and tell us information about someone or something! We sure do love writing!!
We even created our own Edwinas! We were given a choice as to how we made our emus…paint, charcoal, collage materials…some of us even made puppets! We were encouraged to think creativity and to use various materials in interesting ways! We loved how our Edwina’s turned out! They are all so different!
Year One is such a busy place!
