Dear Families & Friends,
Year 6 Camp
This week our Year 6 students, and some very dedicated staff, have travelled by train to Kalgoorlie for our Year 6 Camp. They have experienced panning for gold and visiting a range of Kalgoorlie landmarks such as the ‘Super Pit’. Thank you to Mr Miranda, Mrs Allingame, Mrs Cottino and Mr Rechichi for accompanying our students on camp.
This week, all families should have received a flyer with information regarding our 2020 School Photos. Photography sessions will be held on Monday, 21 September for students in Kindy, Pre-Primary and Years 1, 2, 3 & 6. Students in 3-Year-Old Kindy and Years 4 & 5 will have their photos taken on Thursday, 24 September. Our School Choir Photo will be taken at 8:40am on Thursday, 24 September in the Library. We please ask that students in the Choir arrive promptly by 8:30am and bring along any instruments that they have played this year as part of our Choir performances.
As we are in our final transition year to our new school uniform, there will be no restrictions to which uniform the children wear on their photo day. We just ask that students wear shoes which are predominately black or white and that students follow our normal grooming requirements – neat natural coloured hair, no jewellery (except for a small crucifix on a necklace or stud earrings) and black or blue ribbons for girls (no large bows or hair accessories). Please find below a message from our photographers Kapture Photography.
For the duration of COVID-19, please be aware that Kapture photographers are following all recommended health guidelines and safe practices. Photographers will use verbal queues and instructions in an effort to uphold a high standard of student presentation. Students may be instructed by photographers to use single use sterile combs, use wet wipes or tissues, to fix collars, buttons and stray hairs – without physically touching students.
The only method of ordering your photos is online through the Kapture website as your payment is secure and can be easily verified at any time. Sibling orders can only be placed online at www.kapture.com.au
You have the option to order a sibling photo package online, however, please note there is a physical limit in the school schedule to how many sibling photos can be taken. Once the maximum capacity of sibling orders has been reached, no more sibling orders can be placed.
If maximum capacity is not reached, sibling orders close 12pm midday sharp, AT LEAST one business day prior to the first photo day. Enter your school code as soon as you receive your flyer in the Order Online page of our website for a live countdown.
The school or the photographers cannot accept late orders for sibling photography. Please do not ask as your request simply cannot be accommodated. Order now to avoid missing out!
You can place an order online for class or individual photographs at any time for the remainder of the current school year; however, a $20 fee will apply if you order more than 10 days after photography.
If your child is in a special photo, you can use the same school code on your order envelope to view and order these photos on Kapture’s website, around the time that school photos are ready to be delivered. Please note: class, individual and sibling portraits are not available to view online prior to purchase.
Kapture offer a money back guarantee for any parent who is not fully satisfied with their photo package. Should you have any queries before or after photo day, please direct them to the Kapture office on 9240 1714 or email email@example.com.
All students will be photographed individually on photo day for school administration records AS WELL as included in their class group presentation available for purchase to all families. Should there be any reason why your child should NOT be included in the photo shoot –please contact the school office.
First Holy Communion
Across the next 3 weekends students from our school, as well as children from our Parish, will be celebrating their First Holy Communion for the first time. We wish these candidates and their families a joyous and memorable experience.
