The Terrace Times

Principal’s Message

Good afternoon Parents / Caregivers,

Welcome to this edition of the Terrace Times. (I told you this would be a hectic Term.)

In-term Swimming (P/P to Year 2)

Thank you to everyone who have got their swimming notes and payment back to us so quickly.  I’m pleased to say that In-term Swimming will go ahead starting next week.  The timetable for classes will be available shortly.

Computer School

I am very pleased to announce a great resource for both classroom and for home.  Anzac Terrace has signed up for access to The Computer School.  The website is designed to have all sorts of IT lessons for you to teach yourself or even just refresh your memory all in one location. It includes engaging and detailed tutorials and lessons covering an extensive and varied range of virtually all of today’s most commonly used computer and technology-based programs, apps and devices, and most related topics. There are typing tutors and loads of information about cyber safety.  Best of all, it’s free for you to access at home.  Just click on the link below (this will take you to the welcome screen)

Book Week

Quick reminder about Book Week.  This year’s Book Week theme is – Escape to Everywhere.   Book week will run from 21 August culminating with a Dress Up on Friday 25 August.  On the Wednesday 23 August at 9.00 am, there is a performance for the whole school.  All years (K to 6), are expected to attend.  The cost of this performance will be $5.50 per student.   Payment can be made through Qkr! or the front office in a cash envelope no later than Wednesday 16 August.

Kindy T-Shirt 2018

At Monday’s School Council meeting, members unanimously voted to approve the introduction of a Kindy T-shirt.  The idea is that Kindy Blue would wear a blue t-shirt, Kindy Gold a gold/yellow t-shirt and kindy green a … you get where I’m going here.  I would like the design (that will be screen printed on the t-shirt) to come from one of our students.  I have asked teachers to allow students an opportunity to draw a black and white (only) picture; I have set the theme of the picture as Family/Together. All drawings are to be on an A4 piece of paper, black and white only, and must be original work.   I ask you to encourage your child to participate in this occasion so that their work may be emblazoned on Kindy T-shirts for ever.

Anzac Terrace Has Got Talent

We have entered the second week of auditions for our Anzac Terrace Has Got Talent (ATHGT) Talent Show.  Some of the contestants I have seen perform have been absolutely amazing.  From Martial Arts to Pianists to Singers to Dancers, the performances have been great to watch.  The School Prefects are doing a sterling job judging the performances based on the assessment criteria of Audience Engagement, Stage Presence, Originality, and Overall Performance.  Finalists will be announced in coming weeks, but all entrants will receive a certificate for their efforts. The final will be held at 1:15pm on Friday 22 September, and it will be great to see plenty of parents there to support the acts.

Have a great week,
Stuart Blackwood

Being a Reading Sensation

As most of our students read each night, the BEARS reading program is not extra work for students, parents and caregivers or teachers, it is simply a method of calculating the number of nights the students read, and then rewards them at strategic numbers, eg 50, 100, 200 and so on.

Well done to the following students who have read for –

Constable Care Incursion

On Monday 24 July at 1:00pm Constable Care came to visit us. Nadia and Constable Care showed us three different ways to get to school safely. We had to use our imaginations. I liked it when Constable Care flipped around. It was funny. They showed us how to walk, drive and ride to school safely. Timmy and Nadia rode their bikes to school They wore protective gear like a helmet, elbow pads and knee pads. Nadia and her Grandpa walked and drove to school.

Neve Banfield. Room 12, Year 3

On Monday 24 July we had to use our imaginations for Constable Care. It was funny and interesting. It was about safety and there was a lot of time travelling. Nadia, Grandpa, Professor and Timmy showed us three ways to get to school safely. They told us that we should get out of the car on the side that is closest to the path not the traffic. The Professor, Timmy and Grandpa were puppets.

Declan Page. Room 12, Year 3

On the 24th July we had Constable Care come to our school. We got to see a puppet show about road safety. We used our imaginations to make it interesting. The characters were: Nadia, Constable Care, Grandpa, Professor Tell-you-what-to-do, Timmy and Sage. Constable Care took Nadia on an adventure on the ways to get to school safely. Nadia walked to school with Grandpa, rode on a bike to school with Timmy and drove in a car with Grandpa. Nadia taught us a song to help cross the road. We did a fun road rules quiz!

Message from your School Council


Dear Parents and Friends,

The School Council is proud to announce that it has nominated Mr Tristan Kaempf for the Premier’s Primary Teacher of the Year in this year’s Department of Education Awards.  Mr Kaempf is a very deserving nomination and we wish him all the very best in this year’s awards.  It is important to add that while Tristan is very deserving of the nomination, when all is considered, there are also many very deserving teachers, support and administration staff who could equally have been nominated.  Due to the complexity of completing a nomination, the evidence required and support materials, the council simply did not have enough time to nominate other people in this year’s awards.

As a council, we have learnt a lot through the process of nomination and we have decided, in order to nominate more staff next year, we will be starting the process much earlier to ensure more of our staff are acknowledged in this way for the fantastic work that they do.  In order to do this we need your help.  Every day, our children and ourselves interact with staff in positive and enriching ways.  There are so many opportunities for us to note this and to recognise our staff.  We want to hear about these situations.  How can you tell us?  You can email us at, drop in a note at the office, or have a chat with a school councillor and let us know.  We will be collecting and collating this information to help with nominations next year.  We will also be looking for volunteers to help us prepare those nominations early in the new year.  If you are interested in putting your hand up to help please let us know.

Warm regards,

Adam Cheetham

School Council Chair

Netball News

This term, Anzac Terrace Netball Club started our first NetSetGo Skills Program for ages 5-7 years, which has had overwhelming interest.

These Skills programs are a great way for your child to be introduced to netball without the pressure of competition.

They encourage strengthening of their gross motor development, coordination and the importance of teamwork in a fun and friendly environment.

We will hopefully be holding more of these in the future.

With such a great response to our first season, we are going to be offering teams to compete in the Spring Netball season, also held at Swan Districts Netball Association, which will commence in October and conclude in December.

This season consists of 9 rounds and the teams will range from ages 7-11 years (Year 2 – Year 6).

More information on registration will be available in the next few weeks.

Look out for more Netball news in the coming newsletters on Connect.

The end of the Winter Netball season is fast approaching, (only 3 games left), and Anzac Terrace Netball Club has definitely put our name out there!!

Warriors, our Year 5 team, are currently 2nd on their ladder and Aces, our Year 3/4 team,  although they don’t keep a ladder, have worked so hard and are proving to be real contenders in their division.

Both teams have improved dramatically and it has been great to see their progress, both individually and as a team.

Keep up the hard work girls!!

Go Warriors, Go Aces!!
