Earn and Learn Program

As you know, our school has been participating in Woolworth’s Earn & Learn. The program has now finished for this year, so a big thanks to everyone who supported our school. We’re now at the important stage of the program where the Sticker Sheets are collected and lodged as our Earn & Learn claim. We need all Earn & Learn Sticker Sheets and any loose Earn & Learn stickers to be dropped off at school by this Friday, 22 September. Remember to check your handbag, the car glove box or they maybe stuck on the fridge. Every little bit helps. Thanks again for all your support!”

Students vs Teachers Lunchtime Team Game Challenge

With our exciting interschool event approaching fast, our student interschool competitors honed their skills and took to the field against the teaching staff during their lunch break.  The teacher’s team included a leader ball line up that looked hard to beat. Mr Quantock known for his accurate cricket bowler’s arm took the lead position, with the long term experience of Mr Longhurst holding down the challenging last position. Although the teachers caught well, things got dubious when the teachers were required to sprint with several teachers demonstrating that they had been paying little attention during sports carnival practice and were even seen to be confused as to the direction they were required to run in. We’re glad to say the students experienced no such difficulties and all teams performed like well-oiled machines! The students all performed exceptionally well, which gives us high hopes for school success next week. Thank you to all the teachers who participated and the students for willingly giving up their lunch time breaks to demonstrate their enthusiasm and commitment to Subiaco Primary School achieving their best at the upcoming carnival! Good luck to all competitors!

Duty of Care Before and After School

Lately we have noticed a number of students staying and playing on the school grounds unsupervised after school, while other students are waiting around to be picked up well after 3:30pm.
Parents have the duty of care for students travelling to and from school. This means it is the parent’s responsibility to ensure their child arrives safely both to and from school.

Schools are responsible for duty of care of students once in the school grounds during school operating hours. At our school, children are asked to come to school from 8.30am when a teacher is on duty. If children come to school prior to 8.30am they are asked to sit on the steps outside the staffroom until 8.30am when a teacher will be on duty. After school, it is expected that children make their way home straight away unless under the supervision of parents, for example if playing in the Blackies.

The school cannot take responsibility for students who are at school after 3.15pm. For more information, click HERE to view extracts from the Department of Education’s Duty of Care Policy.
