Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Carers,

Wow, what a term it has been.  I can hardly believe that term 3 is coming to an end. 

Students have been busy in their classrooms, engaged in their work and meeting their individual education goals and targets. This term, Parent and Carers received their child’s Individual Education Plan. The teaching and learning in classrooms, is based around students’ individual plans and I am looking forward to reviewing student success and achievement.  

Westminster ESC Positive Behaviour Support values and skills are explicitly taught and acknowledged across the school daily. Thank you to Laks, Christine, Raph and Emma A, who created videos including key word sign and explicit teaching of PBS skills, these are an incredible resource for our students. Checkout these videos on our Facebook page! 

  • Respectful 
  • Engaged learner 
  • Safe  

The teaching and learning extended outside of the classroom this term, with lots of incursions and excursions opportunities provided to our students. Reflecting on Term 3, it was eventful and highly rewarding: Science week, Book week, Sports Carnivals, photo day, thank you to our wonderful staff for organisation and contribution to the past events.  

Last week, a number of our students participated in the Education Support North Network interschool sports carnival. This was an opportunity for selected students to leave school and participate in a day full of fun, comradery, and good sportsmanship. Thank you to Creaney ESC and Beldon ESC for hosting these events and providing the invaluable opportunity for Education Support schools to come together and celebrate student diversity, whilst having fun.  

As we move into Spring, and the sun is shining, remember to be sun smart and bring your hat to school. 

Today is R U OK day, this is an important opportunity to remind everyone that every day is a day to ask 'Are you OK?'

I wish everyone a safe and happy school holidays.  

Kind Regards,

News from Room 25

Term 3 is almost finished for this year and quicker than imagined. Our students in Room F25 started the new term with great excitement enjoying all our classroom sessions and outdoor activities, including morning fitness. Students have been very busy this term with the Sports Carnival activities practising their races, throws and run, as well as with Science Week, REmida, where they used recycled materials to create their own designs. 

Our students have had a great start in English creating sentences using the Colourful Semantics program; and with Maths, learning about money and division. In our classroom, we enjoy AUSLAN songs and activities by signing greetings, colours, feelings, and family members.  In Cooking, we explored different flavours and textures creating faces on biscuits with fruits to help our students learn healthy food habits, as well as making our delicious Honey Crackles that we all shared and loved.

During HASS we have been looking at the continent of South America and its geography, discovering and identifying the different animals that inhabit the Amazon rainforest with the help of slides, posters and video clips.  

Room F25 had a lot of fun playing different musical instruments during Music, with tambourines, triangles, claves, and drums. We always end the session with Just Dance Videos on the IWB, where students move freely at their own pace, rhythm and beat to contemporary music, which they enjoy very much.   

For Social Skills, we are following through our Positive Behaviour Support lessons, to help them learn our expected behaviours, by receiving class rewards with visits to our Principal, Ms Lopez, for interesting and positive conversations with her, as well as Merit Awards at Assembly when positive behaviours are achieved to help them feel motivated and inspired in our supportive WESC environment.

We are very enthusiastic and looking forward to another busy Term 4 with lots of opportunities for success, rewards, fun, and fantastic new achievements in the learning of new topics to the start of next term.

Principal Article

Dear Parents/ Carers,

Costumes, colours, culture, and creativity have brought our school community together over the past weeks.

Thank you to all our wonderful staff for organising special events and exceptional opportunities for our students.

‘Little Voices, Loud Futures’

National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day, our students spent a block of time in the morning sunshine, engaged in art, play and sensory activity stations. Importantly, an Acknowledgement to Country commenced the event, followed by themed activities that celebrate the strength and culture of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and all, our children. Roaming the area, I saw children painting colours, catching play fish, creating art, playing with different textures and materials, with lots of big smiles.

Science Week

All things Science themed the week. Scientists were out and about, all over the school grounds. Scitech and Reminda visited our school and engaged students in inquiry-based learning, whilst staff were quizzed in a competitive round of science- based questions and answers.

“Read, Grow, Inspire,”

Book week is a much-anticipated event that aims to ignite a love of reading and books. Costumes, colourful displays, and activities themed the week. The book character dress up and book week assembly parade provided students the opportunity to lap the undercover area and show-off their days ‘get up’ to peers and staff. Staff were involved too, and I appreciated the hi-fives given by students as we walked our lap as well. What fun!

Sports Carnival

The anticipated annual sports carnival was a day of colours and events. From the faction march and chants, to running races, team games, modified game rotations, jump jam dancing and tug-a-war, there was an activity for everyone

Students were wearing their colours!  

Swan – Blue               Avon – Red         Tuart – Green

Congratulations Tuart on the win!

Students hit the track for their running races!

Students wearing ribbons, with smiles on their faces!

The weather was perfect, sun was shining, and air was fresh- excellent conditions for our running track racers. I was fortunate enough to stand at the finish line and see the excitement in the student’s faces as they ran their race. The team games brought competitive fun, and our students participated on the same basis as their mainstream peers, for the day events.  It was wonderful to see students in their colours and supporting their factions. I personally wore a multicoloured tutu in support of all three factions. I congratulate Tuart on the overall carnival win. Thank you to Westminster PS staff for facilitating a wonderful day. On days likes these, it makes me reflect and appreciate coming together, providing an invaluable experience for us all.

Thank you to all parents, carers, extended families, and community members who have attended these special events and school activities, as always, we warmly welcome you to join our festivities. Also, thank you to our wonderful P&C for your sausage sizzle and fundraiser on the day. It wouldn’t be a sports carnival without the smell of a sausage sizzle and most importantly, children’s energy levels restored.

I had a building meeting on Wednesday, and I am pleased to report that the build is on track for completion end of December 2023. I will continue to provide the school community updated information and progress reports as I receive it.

Sick Children

Parents and Carers, please keep your child at home if unwell. Staying away from school when sick, will help prevent infecting other students and staff. Together we can get through the last of the “flu season” together. For more information please see: School exclusion periods - infections, colds, COVID-19 | healthdirect

Kind Regards,
