Dear Parents and Caregivers
It has been very pleasing to welcome back our students and see the number of students attending growing each day. At present around 80% of our students are attending face-to-face classes at school.
The State Government has advised that until 18 May, students can return to school for face-to-face teaching or learn from home and strongly encouraged Year 11 and 12 students to attend to continue their critical study program. It is a personal decision influenced by each family’s circumstances. If you are unsure or have concerns for your child’s health, please discuss this with your GP. They are the best person to help you with your decision.
The government advice means at this time there are just two reasons for absence from school:
I would like to update you on a few items that have progressed over the past week or so:
Our additional cleaning and hygiene practices will continue. I would like to thank our cleaning staff for their efforts as they ensure all high-use areas, such as benchtops, desks, doorknobs, water fountains, taps and hand rails are regularly cleaned and surfaces disinfected.
Staff are continuing to disinfect laptops at the beginning of each lesson and all students have the opportunity to use hand sanitizer prior to entry into each classroom.
The gym remains closed before school, at recess and lunchtime. The outside Basketball courts are still open. Please ask your child to respect appropriate social distancing and good hygiene practice when playing games.
The City of Kalamunda Library also remains closed. Students can still use the school library with limited numbers being allowed access due to social distancing.
Week 3 Lessons
Our staff continue to provide face to face learning for students. Students learning from home can access curriculum via Connect.
Compass Parent Portal
Information regarding the Compass Parent Portal will be emailed to parents over the coming weeks. This is an exciting innovation to make parent/school communication easier through the Compass App.
The Uniform shop will open each Tuesday for students to try on and purchase uniforms. At this time, as directed by the Department, no parents are able to enter school grounds, so you may choose to simplify purchases by completing the order form available on the website and use one of the following options to pay:
Uniforms ordered this way will be available from the Front Office by the following Tuesday afternoon.
Year 7 HPV vaccinations – Wednesday 3 June and 18 November
Year 10 Meningococcal vaccinations – Monday 22 June
The Canteen will reopen on Monday 11 May. When possible please use our online ordering system Quickcliq via the website www.quickcliq.com.au.
The Canteen will open from 8.00am with breakfast items subject to availability and please understand that menu items may vary at this time.
Some important changes have been made regarding exam and assessment dates for Term 2. Please have a look at the calendar via the website, lesmurdie.wa.edu.au.
Because of the COVID 19 disruption, our scheduled exam program has been changed to allow extra teaching time.
I would once again like to thank you for your ongoing support as I take on the role of Acting Principal as Kerry Chipchase recuperates from knee surgery. The surgery has gone well and we wish her a speedy recovery.
