From The Principal

Representative events

This term we have the Athletics Carnival in Week 10. Following the School’s Cross country event last Friday, Ms Sharrock and I will pick a team to represent the school at the State Interschool Championships on Friday 10 August.

Following on from the Orienteering that Rooms 1 and 3 did last term, they will be providing a team to represent the school at the State Orienteering Championships on 22 August.

On Friday Mr D’Mello took an open team to represent the school at the Glory Cup soccer. The students performed well and were great ambassadors for Leeming Primary School. The standard was very high this year with an exciting final that went to a penalty shootout.

Emergency Drill.

Last week we held an emergency evacuation drill. We picked a day that was not raining (trick) and called for an evacuation. All of the students evacuated in a calm and sensible manner and all students and adults were accounted for. There were a couple of items that we noticed immediately could be done better e.g. going all the way to the centre of the oval and a few other things that have come out of staff feedback and review. Although every minute of class time is important these drills ensure that we are well prepared  if we need to be.WE will be holding our alternate emergency (lockdown) drill this term as well.

Thanking You

Japanese Student Visit

On Tuesday, July 31st, a group of high school students from Japan (who have been staying with Leeming SHS families) came to Leeming Primary School to do Japanese cultural activities with our students.

Some students from Room 10 wrote about the visit:

Today Japanese students came to our school. The group I was in first read Japanese books. A high school student read in Japanese and then translated it into English. The Japanese people didn’t know everything in English, but they tried their best.

The second activity we did was play with balls filled with air. I felt were excited. In our little group we got fifty catches. By myself I got fourteen. I had a fun time meeting people from a different country and playing games. (Madi)

It was awesome when the Japanese students came to the class. At recess my friends and I talked to them, they were really nice. My friends and I talked a little bit in Japanese, but they were better than us to be honest. After recess the Japanese students came into our class and said ‘hi’ then the teacher split us into groups. First we learnt to write our names in Japanese, the we made paper cranes. It was hard so a girl helped us. At the end we went back to our class.  (Aaya)

On July 31st some Japanese students came into our school. They came here to learn English. They only know a little bit. We played one game called Paper Balloon game and read a few books, the topics were Little Things and Big Things, and then Pets. My favourite part of the books was the cats. I had so much fun. (Charlie P.)

Scholastic Book Fair

The Scholastic Book Fair this year has been the biggest and most outstanding one yet. Thank you to all the children, their wonderful families and the staff at Leeming Primary School, without you all this could not have happened so a very big, big thank you from the bottom of my heart. Now to the exciting part!!! We sold $6210.10 of books and other merchandise and with the commission made, we can now purchase more books and resources for the library and have the  other side of the library painted with a mural like we did last year.The children are very excited about this and will once again have input into the design.

So once again, a huge thank you for all the support of the Leeming Primary  School library.

I look forward to your support again next year.

Belinda Williams (School Library Officer)

Hi Everyone, 

On behalf of the Leeming Spartans JCC Committee, I would like to welcome all girls and boys to the club for this upcoming cricket season. 
The committee was massively proud of all last year’s team achievements. They represented the club with great sportsmanship throughout the season and were humble in victory and gracious in defeat. 
Registrations are now open for our 20th year. Just follow the link https://playcricket.com.au/ and type in Leeming Spartans Junior Cricket Club. The price includes our brand new shirts with numbers on the back and for the older age groups all umpire fees. 

During the off-season, we registered as a Kids Sport club, so vouchers can be used this season if you are eligible. 
I look forward to seeing you all back this season and don’t forget to get in early for registration, as a signed and authenticated full-size bat of the Perth Scorchers (Women’s) bat is up for grabs.
