The Fathering Project

For those who may not know, the Somerly Dads Group is a group of dads that meet each term to participate in an activity organised by the school. Events are organised by classroom teacher and father of four, Mr Daniel Gane, and have been funded by our generous P&C.

It is a great group that provides an opportunity for dads and father figures to have fun with their kids and become part of a strong and supportive network of dads and father figures who are connected to Somerly Primary School.

Events run on a termly basis, so this term we partnered with Bunnings Mindarie to take part in a hands-on woodworking session. Pizza dinner was also provided!

New families are always welcome, so join the What’s App group by using the QR code below or watch this space for future updates about upcoming events!

World Environment - 5 June 2024

World Environment Day is a global program led by the United Nations that is aimed at raising awareness and encouraging action to protect our environment. It takes place every year on 5 June.  This year focuses on land restoration, desertification, and drought resilience under the slogan “Our land. Our future. We are #GenerationRestoration”.

To recognise this event, our students planted native plants around our school to help revegetate our play areas, each class received a plant. Each block received watering cans to allow students to continue to water and look after their plants, to help it grow and thrive. 

The students really embraced this event and enjoyed naming and planting their new plants. I saw many smiles as students built forts to protect their plants and showed other students their plants, referring to them by names such as ‘Bob’ and ‘Groot’. It was really encouraging to see how well-received this event was and I am sure the students will continue to look after them as they grow.

In addition, to the planting we also encouraged all staff and students to come to school with green hair or green hair accessories to acknowledge World Environment Day.  This was also embraced, and I saw lots of amazing green hair styles!

Even though this event is now over, we must all remember that we are #GenerationRestoration and what we do now can help save our environment. 

Thank you all for your support with World Environment Day.

Principal’s Report

Dear Parents/Caregivers

Our vision is to foster every individual’s academic and social development driven by high expectations for success and aspirations for them to become resilient, respectful individuals.

Kaya Families

As the term nears the end, it is an opportune moment to acknowledge the collective strength and adaptability of our Somerly Primary School community. Despite the various challenges and events that we have encountered this term, our community has demonstrated remarkable resilience and unity. It is testament to the supportive and collaborative spirit that defines us. Looking back, we can appreciate the growth and learning that have emerged from these experiences, shaping us into an even stronger and more connected community.

Last week we celebrated World Environmental Day with each class planting and caring for a small shrub in their play areas. Students are proud to be improving our school environment.  Some classes have named their shrub - ask your child to show you their class shrub.

Our school recently completed the Public-School Review process which involved staff, School Board members and members of our P&C Committee, reviewing six domains based on the Department of Education Standards for Public Schools. Following a comprehensive assessment of Relationships, Partnerships, Teaching Quality, Leadership, Learning Environment and Use of Resources, we received a positive three-year review with highly commendable feedback. In the domain of Student Achievement and Progress, we are undertaking a one-year review to provide additional evidence of our assessment practices and developing further moderation with other schools.

We still have a few more eventful things to enjoy this term - Clarkson Community College hosted a Rugby Clinic for our Year 5 & 6 students. Tomorrow, all of our students will be participating in our NAIDOC incursion hosted by Yalkarang Consulting to share Noongar language and culture. Throughout the last week of Term 2, students will participate in activities in classrooms acknowledging NAIDOC Week following on from the incursion.

National NAIDOC Week is held in the first week of July every year (Sunday to Sunday) to celebrate and recognise the cultures, history and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.  

The 2024 NAIDOC Week theme ‘Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud and Proud’ invites all to stand in solidarity, amplifying the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The fire represents the enduring strength and vitality of Indigenous cultures, passed down through generations despite the challenges faced. It is a symbol of connection to the land, to each other, and to the rich tapestry of traditions that define Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. ‘Blak, Loud and Proud’ encapsulates the unapologetic celebration of Indigenous identity, empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to stand tall in their heritage and assert their place in the modern world. This theme calls for a reclamation of narratives, an amplification of voices, and an unwavering commitment to justice and equality. It invites all Australians to listen, learn, and engage in meaningful dialogue, fostering a society where the wisdom and contributions of Indigenous peoples are fully valued and respected. 

On Friday 21st June, our Year 5 & 6 students will be competing against other local schools in the Lightning Carnival. Please ensure you have provided consent and payment through the Consent2Go app or contact the school. Events and schools involved include;

Volleyball at Quinns Rocks Primary School, Speedball at Mindarie Primary School, Tag Rugby at Kinross Primary School, Boys Soccer at Beaumaris Primary School and Girls Soccer at Somerly Primary School. We wish our students all the best, as they participate to represent our school.

Semester One reports will be emailed out to families on Tuesday 25th June, please ensure you have provided the school with your current email address. If parents require second reports to be sent, please contact the school Somerly.ps@education.wa.edu.au with the relevant information.

Year 6 Camp is scheduled for the last week of Term 3, our Year 6 students will be hosting various fundraising activities to help reduce the cost of the camp. If you have any ideas or if you would like to assist them, please contact the Year 6 teachers. The students are hosting a crazy sock day on the last day of term Wednesday 26th June, please join in the fun and bring in a gold coin donation.

The last day of term is Wednesday 26th June, if you require childcare, Theircare will be available, please contact them 0473 100 777.

I hope the last week of term is enjoyable and provides opportunities for wonderful learning experiences. I also hope you all have a safe and happy school holiday we will see you back at school on Monday July 15th for the start of Term 3.

Waste Wise Schools

Gardening Club

Kaya Somerly community,

Due to the wet weather last week we were unable to get into the garden.  We did however have our annual “It’s Cowabunga to be Green” challenge. Participating classrooms had to pick up rubbish around our school on Wednesday and Thursday. The class that collected the most rubbish won the challenge. Our students picked up enough rubbish to fill two 140 litre bins!

Our Challenge winners were:

Don’t feed the fill!
Be the Change!

Thank you to all our staff, students, and community for continuing to support our Containers for Change challenges!

Congratulations!

2023 Total 51526 containers!
2024 Goal 60000 containers!
Our current total is 22815 containers!

Congratulations - as a whole community we collected 7722 containers for our Green House Challenge and Lily’s family won the $50 Bunnings voucher!

Our next challenge and final challenge for term 2 will be our Environment Day Challenge:
