Thank you to those parents and carers who attended the Annual Community Meeting last Wednesday evening. Your support is greatly appreciated!
Christ the King Day:
Christ the King Day was an enjoyable day for our staff and students. We gathered as a school community in the hall for Mass, led by Father Isidore. Following this, each class ran an inviting stall and students had fun, with some even being awarded prizes. The afternoon session was spent with buddies.
Teaching and Learning:
Time in class is precious for teaching and learning. Every effort is made to reduce interruptions to teaching and learning time. If it is unavoidable to collect your child during the day for appointments, please report to the office. Teachers are not able to speak with parents during teaching time as this does not honour the time and attention for the discussion and interrupts the teaching of the class. If you need to speak to your child’s teacher, please send them an email to set up a time for a discussion to take place. We appreciate your support.
End of Year Reports:
The End of Year Reports for students will be available for parents on SEQTA Engage at the end of Term Four, 2023. We ask you to please check your login details NOW to ensure that you have access, prior to the reports being released. New families from Pre-Primary to Year 6 will receive a welcome email, directing you to set up your account for SEQTA Engage. Both parents will be sent the email, however if you are happy to operate just one login for both parents, you don’t need to set up the second one. If you can’t see the email in your Inbox, please check your Junk or Spam folders as sometimes these emails will appear there, as they are sent in bulk. Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any concerns.
It is important that you log into your SEQTA account before reports are posted online. Passwords often need to be reset if your account hasn’t been accessed regularly or may need to be reprovisioned. It is advised when checking your SEQTA Engage account, you do not open from a saved bookmark as data can be cached and affect your access. Please access your account from a new link (preferably on a laptop or PC, not your mobile phone) on our school website under SEQTA ENGAGE quick link or https://ctk.engage.cewa.edu.au
It is highly recommended you check this now, so your child’s reports can be accessed easily.
Please note, that all Year 6 parents/carers and any students leaving Christ The King School at the end of this year, need to access, print, download and save their reports this year, as students come off the Primary SEQTA system at the end of the school year.
As previously mentioned, it would be appreciated if parents could email or phone the school office before 9am, 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.
Many school and community members are suffering from gastro, colds, flu and/or COVID. Please keep your child home if they have any symptoms such as a sore throat, high temperature, running nose or cough. Parents will be asked to collect their children from school if they present at school with these symptoms.
Student Uniform Vigilance:
We strongly encourage you to remind your children to wear the correct uniform, on the correct day and to wear it with pride. Staff have noticed children are not wearing the correct uniform on the correct days, incorrect shoes and socks are being worn (some students are wearing black socks or socks with nike/sporting logos on them etc), and hair ties/scrunchies should be the school colours or the colour of their hair. No claw clips please. Socks should be the school socks or plain white. Please ensure your child is not wearing dangly earrings to school – studs or sleepers are appropriate and safe. Hair below the shoulders should be tied back and out of one’s face. Students should always be looking neat and tidy. Please ensure items are labelled correctly so that they can be easily returned in case they are misplaced. We thank you for your continued support.
Early Childhood Gates:
The ECE playground gates are now locked before and after school for safety reasons. The gate will be unlocked at 8.20am for the students to enter and will be re-locked at the end of the day at 3.20pm. Thank you for your support with this matter.
Move Up Morning – Monday 4 December
Between 9am and 10.30am on Monday 4 December, students will spend time with their classroom teacher for 2024 and will participate in some activities with their 2024 cohort.
St Vincent de Paul Christmas Appeal:
Term Four is well and truly upon us and Christmas time is fast approaching. This is the time when we start collecting for the St Vincent de Paul Christmas Hampers. The St Vincent de Paul Society helps to provide hope, comfort, and dignity to families who require extra assistance during the festive season. Due to the nature of the season, Christmas can be a particularly emotional time of year where feelings of disappointment, failure, and isolation can be heightened. We hope you will help bring ’Christ into Christmas’ and generously donate non – non-perishable items to our appeal.
Last date to bring in your donations to your child’s classroom is:

This lovely community event showcases our talented students and is a fabulous way to celebrate the school year and the magic of Christmas. Please wear something warm, bring along a picnic rug/blanket, and join with us in celebrating the true magic of Christmas.
Where: Christ the King School Quadrangle
When: Wednesday 29 November 2023
Time: 6pm – to be seated at 5:45pm.
Please arrive early, as children need to be seated at 5:45pm when the siren sounds. The Concert will conclude around 7:40pm. Children have been advised what to wear by their teachers. Please make sure your child has a water bottle with them. Each class from Kindy to Year 6 will be involved, along with our school choirs. The P&F raffle will be drawn at the end of the evening! There will be plenty of parking available on our school oval. Please be respectful of our neighbours and do not park on their verges. We kindly ask for students not to run around on the evening and to sit with their families before the concert begins at 5.45pm. We appreciate your support with this.
Please bring your best Christmas cheer and your best singing voices and join in this special Christmas Carols event.

Seton Catholic College
Perth Goju Karate
We teach classes for young children, teens and adults and they are fantastic for fitness, wellbeing and of course, self-defense.
Students who attend the schools on-site After Care can be collected and taken to the class in the hall and returned to After Care when their class is finished.
Classes continue over the school holidays (with a short break over the Christmas period) which makes it perfect for the kids who are looking to try something on the holidays.
Karate has many benefits which include confidence, respect, discipline and fitness.
Places for the beginner’s class will be limited, contact us to book your name in and secure your spot for week 1 of the trial period.
