Welcome to Week 7!



A gentle reminder that with the cold and flu season upon us, we greatly appreciate parents keeping their children home when they are unwell. It would be appreciated if parents could email or phone the school office before 9am, 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:

The Christ the King school uniform is a symbol of our school and helps our students develop a sense of belonging within our school community. Wearing the uniform correctly and being well-presented encourages a sense of pride in appearance and what the uniform represents – our school community. It is timely to remind all students to continue to wear the correct uniform, on the correct day and to wear it with pride. Please ensure items are labelled correctly so that they can be easily returned, in case they are misplaced.


Report Time is Approaching!

The Mid-Year Reports for students will be available for parents on SEQTA Engage at the end of Term Two. Could you please check your login details NOW to ensure that you have access prior to the reports being released in Week 11.

New families from Year 1 to Year 6 and all Pre-Primary families will receive a welcome email next week 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 if you have any concerns.

Reports for 2024 – Understanding Your Child’s Report for PP – Year 6

Parents will receive 2 Formal Academic Reports this year:

July – Mid Year Report:

This report provides parents with a ‘snapshot in time’ of how their child is progressing in relation to the end-of-year achievement standard for each learning area for their year level. The grade provided is taking into account the curriculum which has been taught and assessed to that point in time.

December – End of Year Report:

This report provides parents with an overview of how their child has progressed, across the entire year, in relation to the end of year Achievement Standard for each learning area for their year level. The grade provided is taking into account the curriculum which has been taught and assessed across the entire year, not just Semester Two.

Understanding the Grading System 

Is a ‘C’ grade good? Yes, you should celebrate ‘C’ grades as this indicates that your child has progressed to the desired level of understanding for his/her year level.

Is a ‘C’ grade just a pass like it used to be? No, a ‘C’ grade today, is the expected Achievement Standard for each year level and each Learning Area.

Does an ‘A’ or ‘B’ grade mean my child is working a year or two above their current grade? No, an ‘A’ or ‘B’ grade means that your child is responding to the content taught to a deeper level. They may be thinking more critically about the content, which is a wonderful skill to demonstrate.

How are final grades determined? Teachers collect numerous samples of work and assessments to determine the final grade. The grade is determined with the use of the School Curriculum and Standards Authority’s (SCSA) Judging Standards. For more information on this go to

We hope this information assists you to understand the reporting process at Christ the King. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.

Introducing our new School Nurse:

Hi everyone,

My name is Andrea, and I am very excited and honoured to be CTK’s first school nurse.

I have been living in Australia for the past 9 years and am originally from beautiful Ireland.

I am a Registered Intellectual Disability Nurse and since coming to Perth – I have worked both in the community and residential settings with both children and adults. For the past 6 years I worked with Therapy Focus as a Continence Clinician – helping many children, teenagers and adults with their toileting needs and goals– so please don’t be shy in coming to me for a chat – the toileting department is one of my favourite things to talk about J

My hope and vision for CTK is to set up and bring a Wellness centre that is both welcoming and relaxing for any child feeling unwell or just quite simply needing a little mental health break from all the chaos of day to day life. I hope that this Wellness centre provides you as parents a feeling of reassurance that your child is being well cared for until such a time that they are at home.

I am big into sports – my current focuses over the past few years have been participating in Triathlon – as well as managing/coaching my local Camogie Team (for those that don’t know the sport – it is an Irish sport also known as Hurling). Finally, the last thing to know about me is I have a beautiful little French Bulldog named Henry. I adopted Henry 3 years ago after he had corrective surgery on his cleft palate. Hopefully, at some point you and your children will also get to meet Henry as he has been known to join me at work in the past and I have no doubt Henry would love to meet all of the beautiful children of Christ the King.
