We hope this newsletter finds you refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready for an exciting journey as we embark on Term 4! We extend a warm welcome to both our returning students and those who have just joined our school community for the first time. It’s going to be a wonderful term filled with opportunities for growth, discovery and achievement.
As we resume a new term, we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all the parents and families for your unwavering support and involvement in your child’s education. Your partnership is instrumental in creating a nurturing environment where our students can thrive academically, socially and emotionally.
Transition into Term Four:
We are extremely proud of the way our students have displayed remarkable enthusiasm in getting back into routines, which is a testament to their incredible capacity for growth. We commend our students for embracing new challenges and settling into their learning routines with such determination.
Celebrating Achievements and Progress:
We celebrate not only the high achievements but also the continuous progress of our students. Every step forward, no matter how small, is a significant milestone in their educational journey. We encourage our teachers to recognise and acknowledge the efforts of each student, fostering a growth mindset that inspires them to reach even greater heights. Please celebrate these milestones with your children, no matter how small.
Academic communication for this term will include posting term overviews on Seesaw, progress conversations prior to reporting for students receiving D grades and formal reports. This term, staff have many exciting learning activities and events planned, including excursions and incursions, sporting carnivals, prayer service, assemblies, Numero competition, leadership day and camp overnight stay, spelling bee competition, Grandparents morning, Remembrance Day service, Christ the King Day and our annual Carols Evening. Amongst other learning opportunities, our Year 6 students will graduate from primary school at the end of the term!
Please make sure you have made note of the dates during this term. We conclude Term 4 on Friday 8 December, 2023. Please note, that Monday 6 November (Week 5) is a Pupil Free Day for our students. Our Staff will participate in a professional development planning day.
It would be appreciated if parents and carers could email or phone the school office before 9 am, in order to notify staff of their child’s absence from school. Please do not wait for a message from the school. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this matter.
Student Uniform Vigilance:
Please ensure uniform items are labelled correctly so that they can be easily returned in case they are misplaced.
Our Year 6 Head Girl and Head Boy, Ahlia and Maksim will be interviewing our staff throughout the year so that we all can get to know each other well. This week they interviewed Sinor Desiati, our fabulous Italian teacher. To find out more about Sinor Desiati, please read below;
How long have you taught Italian at Christ the King?
What is your favourite colour and why?
All colours – blue and the colours of the Italian flag.

Did you know that the Parkin family ran in the Perth Running Festival 4km Dash last weekend and raised a total of $2252 for Telethon? This money will go towards medical research into childhood diseases, providing equipment, critical services and life-changing opportunities for sick, disadvantaged and vulnerable children in Western Australia.
In order of finishing (crossing the line) the Parkin’s finished:
49th out of 2046 people Charlie (7th in category) time 14’23”
51st out of 2046 people Jeremy ( 4th in category) time 14’23”
212th out of 2046 people Lucinda ( 21st in category) time 18’48”
The Parkins family all managed to get their PBs which is wonderful news! Congratulations!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our dedicated staff for their tireless efforts in nurturing and guiding our students. Their commitment to providing a positive and engaging learning experience is commendable and we are fortunate to have such passionate educators at Christ the King School.
It has been a wonderful start to the term so far and I wish everyone an enjoyable weekend and term ahead!
