Welcome to Week 3! We hope you have settled in well to Term 3!


Term Three Planning:

Academic communication for this term will consist of posting of Term Overviews on Seesaw and an open night, later in the term. We have many exciting learning activities and events planned, including incursions, excursions, assemblies and carnivals.


Pupil Free Days for Term Three:

This a gentle reminder that there is a Pupil Free Day on Friday 18 August and Friday 22nd September 2023.


2023 Religious Education Assessment (rea):

Our Year Three and Five classes were recently involved in the Religious Education Assessment (REA). This Assessment provides a point-in-time snapshot of student performance in Religious Education. Students’ knowledge and understanding of the content of the RE curriculum is assessed using a combination of multiple choice, and short and extended answer response items. The REA was completed online and will give us information to measure student learning of content in the Religious Education curriculum. The results of these assessments will also inform teaching and will be made available to parents and carers, once released. Thank you to our Year Three and Five teachers for all of their support in administering the assessments.


2023 NAPLAN:

NAPLAN results for 2023 were sent home to families last week. Information was also sent home about interpreting and reading the data. The data is a good resource for our school to review how we are travelling across different learning areas and focus areas for continuous improvement. Please contact your child’s classroom teacher if you have any questions.


School Procedures:

This a gentle reminder that class begins for our students at the times listed below:

Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten:
Doors open at 8.30 am and class begins at 8.40 am

Pre-Primary to Year 6:
Doors open at 8.30 am and class begins at 8.40 am

For the safety and well-being of each individual child, no student should be on school grounds, unattended, before 8.10 am (unless your child is participating in a co-curricular event). We have had several students who ride and get dropped to school arriving closer to 8 am and school supervision does not begin in the quadrangle until 8:10 am. We appreciate your support with this and appreciate your understanding.

If your child arrives at school after 8.40 am, please take your child to administration and sign in via the app on the iPad before going to class. This is also required if a child is collected during the day and then returned to school. If a child needs to be collected before 3.00 pm (or 2.45 pm for Kindergarten), please sign out via the app on the iPad in the office. If a child will not be attending school on any day, please contact the school prior to 9.00 am on the day of the absence using one of the following methods listed below:

Word on Wellbeing – Highway Heroes:

On Friday 18 August, (Pupil Free Day for students) our staff will be engaging in a Professional Development Day and will be learning about the Highway Heroes Social and Emotional Learning Program, facilitated by Helen Davidson.

Little Highway Heroes (Early Years) and Highway Heroes (Primary Years) are curriculum-aligned, research-based, Social and Emotional Learning resources with a continuous process of skill development. By commencing this learning early through the explicit teaching of selected skills, children will have the opportunity to lay down healthy habits of emotional self-management and social engagement, which will impact every area of their life, including increased academic achievement and greater awareness and understanding of relationships. Watch this space!

 Helen Davidson (co-author of Highway Heroes) will be presenting a FREE parent workshop about ‘Growing Resilience and Wellbeing’ on Tuesday 22 August from 6 pm – 7 pm in our school library. We hope to see you there!


One Big Voice:

On Friday 18 August, our school choir will be performing at the One Big Voice Festival at RAC Arena. Please refer to the information note sent home to families with all the details. We wish our choir students all the best of luck for this special event! Please contact if you have any questions or queries about this festival.


Book Week 2023:

Book Week is fast approaching! The theme for this year is ‘READ, GROW, INSPIRE’. The Book Week Parade will be on: Wednesday 23rd August at 9 am for students from K-6 in the quadrangle. On the day, your child is welcome to come to school dressed as a character from a book they enjoy. If you have any questions or queries, please contact your child’s classroom teacher. We have some amazing Authors visiting our school before and during Book Week to conduct some workshops with our students, which will be a highlight for everyone!

Staff Profile:

Our fabulous Year 6 leaders, Ahlia and Maksim, will be interviewing our staff throughout the year so that we all can get to know each other well. Their first target was Mrs Hagan, our amazing Learning Support Co-ordinator. Find out more about Mrs Hagan below:

 Why did you decide to become a teacher?
When I was little, I would pretend to play teachers with teddies. I would dress in my Mum’s clothes and at that moment, I knew I wanted to be teacher. I had a wonderful teacher called Mrs Lyons and she was amazing!

What is your favourite colour?

What is your favourite subject?
Maths – but I didn’t like it at school.

Did you have a pet when you were young?
Yes – a dachshund called Sasha. She was spoilt, fat and lazy. When you would take her for a walk, she refused by making choking noises.

How many years have you been teaching at Christ the King?
15 years.

What do you love most about Christ the King?
The whole staff have a shared vision. We want every child to have the best version of themselves.


Student Spotlight:

We know that many students at Christ the King have amazing gifts and talents and achieve outstanding things outside of their life at our school. We would love to hear about all these achievements and have created a ‘Student Spotlight’ section in the Newsletter where you can share your stories with us. In order for us to share the news, we require as much detail as you can provide, so please email Mrs Reardon at: We can’t wait to hear and share your news!
