Mount Lawley Primary School

Term 2 Information

Friday, 1 May 2020 @5:03PM

Good evening families,

Thank you so much for the last three days! It has been so lovely to have such positive feedback from you that your child/ren have either loved being back at school or have enjoyed the online Distance Education learning. We are looking forward to next week when we know we have even more students returning, making our school an even happier place. Please be aware that we will continue our drop off and pick up routine, using both Second and Third Avenue. Please remember to say a quick goodbye to your child so they can move into the school and go to the basketball courts to line up with their class, as no parents/carers are allowed on site. Please don't drop off students before 8.25am as there is no one to supervise before the gates open and we want all our students to be safe. 

Please continue to use the Kiss N Drive in the correct manner and refrain from doing U-turns in the street or reversing into resident's driveways. If your child is being picked up by another person, please contact the office so Grace Adam and myself are aware when we release students in the afternoon. We will not let a child go home with someone else if we haven't been notified. The afternoon pick up is when we appear to have the most adults gathering outside the gates, so please remember to enact social distancing while you wait so we are all safe. Once you have collected your child, please move from the school site quickly to avoid congestion and to follow the COVID rules. Pre-primary students (who don't have siblings) are able to be picked up from 2.45pm at the Third Avenue gate.

You may have heard the announcement this afternoon by the Minister of Education and the Premier that we have been selected to participate in a research study by the Telethon Institute regarding COVID-19, which will look at both staff and students. Eighty schools in total throughout WA were selected and we will send home more information when it comes to us. Please note that the study is opt-in and written consent will be required to participate. 

A reminder the Library is closed for borrowing and readers, so we encourage you to access books from home so your child continues with their daily practice of home reading. Connect Notices will now come out on Monday each week. There is a Well-being Survey on the Distance Education platform for each year level that we would like each student to fill out on Friday afternoons and submit. Please have your child complete this weekly survey.

As always, please contact me if you have any questions or concerns

Stay safe and take care,

Cavelle Monck



Kindy Enrolments 2021

In Western Australia, children can start their education in Kindergarten, however compulsory schooling starts the following year in Pre-Primary.

Applications for 2021 open 18 May and close on Friday 24 July 2020.

You need to apply to enrol your children in school for 2021 if they are:

  • starting Kindergarten – 4 years old by 30 June 2021
  • starting Pre-Primary, the first year of compulsory school – 5 years old by 30 June 2021
  • starting Year 7, the first year of secondary school
  • changing schools.

Enrolment requirements differ from school to schoolMount Lawley PS is a local-intake school with a defined boundary as described below. Families who reside within the local-intake area are guaranteed enrolment for their children in the compulsory years of schooling (PP to Year 6). Children whose usual place of residence is not in the local-intake area are accommodated where possible but acceptance is at the principal's discretion. Parents are encouraged to apply by the closing date, even if the child is of compulsory school age and is guaranteed a place in the school. This assists us with planning for the following year.
