Term 2 week 2 Newsletter


Dear Parents/Caregivers,

In our quest to eliminate waste in our school and the Derby community we have joined the Containers for Change project. This means we can recycle drink cans and bottles and raise money for the school at the same time. We are temporarily using tubs, in faction colours, while we are waiting for some faction coloured wheelie bins. Please send in your recyclable containers and remember “Don’t feed the fill.”

Due to four staff changes for next term, Miss Chloe moving to Port Hedland, Mr. Kayde on Long Service Leave, Miss Christine on Maternity Leave and Miss Jenny moving back to Perth, we have employed new staff to replace them. I am pleased to inform you that we have been fortunate to appoint quality staff to replace all of them. I will explain the changes in detail next week when all the paperwork and necessary checks have been carried out.

I would like to thank all of the parents who are supporting our Healthy Eating/Plastic Free initiative. The children enjoy getting their raffle tickets on Waste Wise Wednesday and Waste Free Friday. It has become very noticeable the decrease in the amount of waste in our bins going to landfill. Please help us to help your precious children and our precious environment.

Happy Mothers’ Day to all of our Mums.

Our Lady Queen of the Holy Rosary Pray for Us
