Principal’s Update

Welcome to term 4.

We are so proud to welcome so many new students to our school and to celebrate them becoming an important part of our school community. Our existing students are known for their warmth and inclusivity, so I hope transition between the ‘old’ school and Baynton West PS is smooth and joyful.

We welcome 18 student teachers from universities around Western Australia to our school. These students are all currently in third year are completing practicums with our expert teachers. We are fortunate to have a strong reputation in education and are able to attract so many teachers embarking on a career in primary education to enhance the opportunities for our students.

On another note, we are thrilled to be finalists for the following awards:

Governor’s STEM Awards

WA Primary School of the Year

WA Premier’s Excellence in Aboriginal Education.

Please wish us luck!

Principal’s Update

24 September 2021

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

Term three is almost over and hasn’t it been busy? We have really enjoyed the athletics carnivals this term and congratulate the exemplary sportsmanship of our students and thank our parents for their great support of these events.

We hosted the judges for the WA Primary School of the Year award last Friday; our students, staff and parents all spoke so glowingly about our school, it was very impressive. Prior to that, we had also hosted judges for the Aboriginal Excellence in Aboriginal Education award and once again, our wonderful community and students did not disappoint.

We are so fortunate to be nominated for these awards and proud to be finalists.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a restful and enjoyable break and we look forward to seeing you all back on the 12 October (our office opens on the 11 October).

Happy holidays!

Lisa Ledger
