Middle 2

Middle 2 has had a very busy and exciting term. All students have settled into our class routines and have adapted well to any changes made for the new Semester. This Semester we have some exciting community access outings planned, including the art gallery, WA Museum and Scitech. We have also started our new Literacy program where students have adapted well to transitioning to different classes and working with different staff.  Levi, Sienna, Elle, Daniella and Declan have all had birthdays in the month of July which we have all enjoyed celebrating with the class favourites of hot chips and cake! We are so excited for the coming term and the new challenges and learning opportunities that lay ahead.

P&C News

The P&C are so excited how well the Mother’s Day stall went and look forward to doing another stall for Fathers Day. This is a great opportunity for our Malibu kids, staff and parents to shop for their special loved one for Father’s Day. Plus the kids get an opportunity to grow on their skills for money handling.

Our Father’s Day stall will be held on Wednesday 30/8/34 9-11am to allow parents an opportunity and for each class to come through. Please send money with child on the day if you wish them to take part. We aim to keep prices low and reasonable. So even a few dollars will allow child to purchase something.

We are looking at also doing another raffle for Father’s Day to give opportunity for parents that don’t come into the school much to be a part of something. Tickets will be sent home at a cost of $1 each. Which would be drawn before Father’s Day of course. 

Just like the Mother’s Day we are asking for any donations of unwanted gifts or new items not needed that are suitable to be added to our father day stall. Also if you own a business or know someone that owns a business and would like to donate a voucher or items that would be wonderful. 

The P&C joined Malibu for the PESA Book Week Disco assisting in cooking and serving sausage sizzle orders.

If you would like to connect and/or network with other Malibu parents we are hosting coffee and cake chats after each assembly. Look forward to getting to know you. 

Blessings to you all

What an amazing start to semester 2 we have had with the Hydrotherapy Program. With the addition of over 10 students having new plans and joining us in the water with some more expected to start soon.

We have had so many successes this year, with our junior In-term swimming at Aqua Jetty and plenty of wins in the school pool with new skills being learnt.

In semester 2, as well as implementing students’ hydrotherapy plans, we will also be focusing on water safety. This will include safe entries and exists, floating, breathing techniques and water recovery.

We would like to acknowledge all the parents/carers for their involvement in preparing our students for the swim program, working with therapists, and providing appropriate swimming gear.

For those asking about Containment Swim Shorts, we have attached a link for an Australian provider.

Principal's Pen

Dear families 

What a great week we have had. Monday Book Swap, Tuesday combined school Disco, Wednesday the early childhood classes enjoyed a visit from the Sensorium Theatre, Thursday I had the pleasure of reading a book about a girl who uses a device as her voice to the students and Friday has been brilliant too.

This week we've had a lot of experiences with books, which is such an enjoyable reminder with so much technology around us.  As you may know, I've just returned from a short trip to America which included a stop at Las Vegas. For those who have never visited, the visual overload doesn't stop during the daytime! Las Vegas is somewhere you won't find a book!

I was fortunate to have an incredible view from my room and marvelled at a new installation called the Sphere. It is effectively the world's largest TV screen. Day and night, it displayed an amazing variety of images, including the moon! While I was watching, I knew many of our students would be facinated by it and wanted to share. I certainly was facinated, though appreciated the move towards books this week!  

Our combined school disco was our largest yet and I congratulate our team for coordinating such an incredible event and to the P&C for their spectacular sausage sizzle. Thank you to our families for supporting all the dress-ups and those who could join us during the day. Your efforts made the day very special. 

May you have a wonderful weekend and we hope to see you at our next event for our incredible students and families. 

Kind regards
Merrilee Wright
