Kindy Playground Upgrades

We were so happy to see our Kindy children playing on their tricycles on their new figure eight path.  We are also looking forward to the new cubby arriving very soon!

 




 

World of maths

Thanks to the money raised at our yearly Math-a-thon, we were able to pay for every child in the school to experience the 'World of Maths' incursion.  The presenter was very impressed with the behaviour of our students.


 

 


 

Cross county

We held our annual cross country and were very impressed with the perseverance and determination of our students. All the training paid off with many of our students placing in the inter-school cross county!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Year 5/6 camp

Every two years our year 5/6 students go on a camp.  This year they went to Karem Adventure Camp in Bullsbrook.  The students and staff went for three days and two nights and participated in a variety of team building activities that were challenging and fun. Although they came back exhausted, an amazing time was had by all!

 


 

 


 

P&C Movie Night

Every year our P&C hold a Movie Night Fundraiser.  This year the movie was ‘Ferdinand’ and was another great success raising $253. The students and parents loved wearing their pyjamas and bringing their sleeping bags and pillows to our covered assembly area.

 

 

 

Running Club

This term, some of our students, staff and parents have been participating in Running Club before school on a Tuesday morning.

JOONDALUP LANTERN PARADE

This year, we were lucky again to take part in the annual City of Joondalup's Lantern Parade. Our Year 4-6 students loved the opportunity to showcase their shadow puppets.

 

 

 

SCHOOL CAPTAINS

Each year we choose our School and Faction Captains.  Our captains take their roles very seriously and they relish the oppotunity to develop their leadership skills as they perform their duties across the school.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ACTIVE LEARNING, CODING AND ICT


We continue our commitmemt to providing engaging learning at Heathridge PS. Active learning and technology are key components of all lessons across the school.


 

 

 

HEATHRIDGE HARMONY GAMES AND HARMONY DAY


In 2018, we held our inaugural Heathridge Harmony Games.  This special day coincided with our Harmony Day celebrations and the Commonwealth Games that were held in Brisbane this year.  Our students rotated through a variety of maths based activities that had a sporty twist! Our students were split into teams representing a different country of the Commonwealth.  We held an opening and a closing ceremony where medals were awarded.  In the afternoon the parents joined us on the oval for a yummy lunch and some team sports.  A very successful day and fun was had by all!

 

 

 

 

MOTHER'S DAY

 

Every year, our Kindy and Pre-Primary classes love holding pamper mornings and afternoon teas where they can spoil their mums in many ways. Our mums really treasure these special moments.

 

 


 

 

ANZAC CEREMONY 2018

 

Each year, the ANZAC Ceremony at our school is a very important and special event. Our students demonstrate their respect via the activities they complete prior to the ceremony and their behaviour during it. We would like to thank Mr Bolton for coming in from his Long Service Leave to deliver his annual speech.  Once again he captured the spirit of ANZAC and the spirit of our values at Heathridge Primary School.  There wasn't a dry eye in the audience.

 

 

 

FATHERS' FRIDAYS

Each Friday at lunchtime, we invite our dads to come in and spend time with their children. This initiative is another example of the way we actively engage our families in their child's education.

 

 

 

 

FITNESS FANATICS

 

In Term 2 of 2018, Miss Marrs and Miss Redknap are running a before school fitness club known as the Fitness Fanatics for our students.  Despite the puffing, the students love it!
