This year Book Week, that was originally planned to be in August has been postponed to Term 4. This was a decision by the Children’s Book Council of Australia and due to the uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Due to this change, we will also have Book Week in Term 4 in Week 3. We have changed our Book Fair, our dress up day and will hold our Father’s Reading Morning during Term 4 also. Although we are planning these events to be held, we need to acknowledge that, due to the pandemic, our plans may not come to fruition. We can only pray that this is not the case.
I wanted to firstly thank you for your strong support of Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA), and especially for our wonderful staff, over the past six weeks. Our system’s commitment to a Christ-centred and student-focused education has been at the forefront of our efforts as we have been challenged by and responded to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Firstly a huge thank you to all the many families, most of the school, who completed the Forms survey to let us know your decision for your child/ren about the commencement of Term Two.
As you are aware, the last six weeks have been an incredibly challenging time for everyone. The COVID-19 virus has impacted on every aspect of our daily lives. Education has been no exception. I do want to thank you for your ongoing support and commitment to St Bernadette’s Catholic Primary School.
The loss of a parent, close family member, a separation in the family, a serious illness or accident, moving state/country or any other significant change can be a crushing event in a child’s life; the impact can be overwhelming. These situations affect children socially, spiritually, behaviorally and academically. In order to support our students’ well being here at St. Bernadette’s we will be commencing the annual rainbows grief and loss program next term.
Through Rainbows, children are helped to verbalize their feelings, build a stronger sense of self-esteem and dispel their guilt and anger over the changes in their family. They no longer feel alone when they gather with other children who are facing the same or similar situations. If you feel that your son or daughter would benefit from the program, please complete the following nomination form. You will then be contacted further by Andrea Groom to discuss the nomination in more detail. This is to inform you that your child/ren, will be participating in the Rainbows Program at Name of College/School. The commencement date of the program will be in term 2. You will be notified in due course of the start date.
