From the Principal – Term 2, Week 01


Dear Parents, Caregivers and Community Members,


Welcome to Term 2! I hope you all had a happy and Holy Easter and had the opportunity to enjoy a break from the routines of school and experience some quality family time together. The start of a school term can be a challenging time where we struggle with getting back into the early mornings, library bags, homework, notes, and various activities that schools provide. It is important that this time remains as calm as possible and that we give our children some time to adjust. Early nights, a decent breakfast and healthy snacks and lunches will all help with this. It is also important to allow children to make mistakes and to learn from these mistakes. Primary schools are fantastic environments for learning for life and it is very difficult to learn without having the confidence and safety to try new or challenging things, even if we make mistakes. Be calm in this transition, encourage your children to have a go and allow them to make mistakes so they can grow, build confidence, and develop resilience.

New Families – I wish to extend a very special welcome to the KYLE-BARTLETT Family – Ruben, Pre Primary. The QUINTAL Family – Weatherby in Pre Primary and Remington in Year Two. I know you will really enjoy your time with us as CtK is a wonderful, vibrant and engaging school community.

As we commence a new school term, we renew friendships with others we may not have seen over the holidays. This little prayer below reminds us all of what we should be striving to achieve in our relationships with others:


“Everyone will know you are my friends if you love one another.”

Let us show our love by making peace and trying to make things better.

Let us show our love by caring about the happiness of others and by thanking them for their goodness to us.

Let us love one another as we share our friendships, laughter, learning and meals in celebrating together.

Help us, Lord, to love one another as Jesus has loved us.


The school website is currently undergoing changes and improvements so it remains current and informative. I have nearly finished; just adding new promotional photos now that were taken at the end of last term. Improvements have been made to enrolments, absentees and the general look of the website.

We welcome our 3 Year Old Kindy children to their new classroom today. I wish to thank Miss King, Mrs Anderson and Mrs Luelf for helping create an amazing learning environment for the children. Mr Dom has been very busy helping ensure the area is tidy and safe for lots of potter and play. Thank you, Mr Dom. Also, I wish to thank Miss Williams and Miss Kezic for helping purchase and put the furniture together during the school holidays. A huge team effort, thank you all.

School Uniform Update

As we move to our winter uniform, parents have a choice for the boys to wear pants or shorts. The girls can wear the old pinafore uniform or the new uniform. Please remember we have a two year changeover once the new uniform becomes compulsory. The updated policy is on the school’s website.

This term the School Community is focused on our Years Three, Four and Six students who will be making one of the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Communion or Confirmation We ask Jesus to be with our children and their families during this special time. We hope Year 3 parents and students enjoyed working with Mario Borg at the Reconciliation Workshop Tuesday evening.

 Cooking Pancakes in the Learning Centre

Have a look at what some of our children cooked in the Learning Centre this week. Love the pancakes. Well done, chefs!


Christ the King School had a special visit from Mrs Annette Morey, Deputy Executive Director CEWA on Tuesday. Mrs Morey visited some classrooms and had a walk around the school to understand our context. Our School Advisory Chair, Mrs Beaton also joined us as we discussed the State and Federal elections next year and how we need to lobby government for better funding for our system and school. Mrs Morey was welcomed by our Head Girl, Dominique and Head Boy Christian.


As a school we will be commemorating ANZAC Day on Wednesday, 24 April, at 9:00am in the Quad. All are welcome to join us for this special service. A reminder Thursday, 25 April is ANZAC DAY (Public Holiday) and Friday 26 April is a Pupil Free Day as all staff will be involved in a Spirituality PD.

Our Wicker Garden Beds have arrived! With support from the P&F we have 5 wicking beds and 2 wheelchair accessible garden beds all located in the quad. This Wednesday, classes will choose what they wish to plant for the upcoming season and then they will plant the seedlings. A huge thank you to Mrs Tilzey for coordinating these for us. Awesome job, Mrs Tilzey. A huge thank you to our P&F for paying for the garden beds. All our students will have better access to growing, harvesting and cooking the fresh produce.


Year 6 Camp

It is an exciting time for our Year 6 students as they prepare themselves for their school camp. The students and staff will be setting off on Tuesday (30th April) morning to Nanga Bush Camp, Dwellingup.

The purpose of this camp is fundamentally about developing the leaders of the school. The school camp builds confidence, resilience and responsibility, turning students into empowered, inspiring leaders.

All children learn from the unique experience of community living; sharing, working and living as a team.  Being inter-dependant with peers affords the child an opportunity to make new friends, to view each other out of the context of school, and to witness and appreciate the different talents of others.  School camps expose children to different environments that they would not normally experience in daily suburban living.  Out of this they build personal competencies such as self-identity, self-worth, self-esteem, leadership and self-respect.

Camps help develop self-esteem as children learn to try different activities in a supportive and friendly environment.  Professionally trained, outdoor instructors help children feel secure and capable.  This will help children grow by providing a supervised, positive environment that has safety as a primary commitment.

Students participate in activities they have never experienced before and are rewarded with a sense of accomplishment and self-worth.  Camp is therefore a wonderful experience for all children as they learn new skills and develop a sense of autonomy and trust in their decisions.

The aims of the camp are:

  • to develop within the students their leadership skills.
  • to build and develop new friendships.
  • to build personal competencies such as self-identify, self-worth, self-esteem and self-respect.
  • to participate in activities that perhaps students have never experienced before.
  • to develop new skills and develop a sense of autonomy and trust in their decisions.

Staff members attending the camp:

  • Miss Kezic
  • Mrs Barrett
  • Mrs McLinden
  • Mr Martelli
  • Mr Geaney
  • Mr Kelly

We wish all the students and the teachers all the best for the four days. We hope that they have a great time and participate in some wonderful and memorable experiences.

3 Year Old 2025 – Applications are Now Due

In 2025 Christ the King will be offering 4 days of 3 Year Old Kindy. More details will follow shortly. Please register your interest now!

4 Year Old Kindergarten 2025 – Applications are Now Due

We consider the safety, health and well-being of all our children to be of paramount importance and, therefore, ask that parents respect the procedures that are in place. Classroom doors open at 8.30am allowing students to unpack and become settled for the school day.

Welcome Back Everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful break and are ready for an exciting term ahead.

The ECE Colouring in Comp, Easter Egg Guessing Game and Easter Raffle winners were all announced on the last day of school. For the first time ever, the Easter Raffle was drawn using an electronic wheel on the big screen in the hall, and the children (and teachers!) were very excited to see their names spinning around. Congratulations to all the winners of the raffle and thank you for all of your generous donations and support.

A huge Congratulations to William Edwards (3yr old), Lilliana Green (Kindy) and Elle Micalef (Pre-Primary) for winning the Easter Colouring in Comp. There were so many beautifully coloured entries, so well done to all the children as they were all so amazing.
