    Dear Parents/Care Givers

    Our school is a great school in which to learn, play and grow. To maintain this culture of calm, nurturing, respect and care for each other (this is our Caladenia Jigsaw), we need to focus on all the little things that make a big difference in making our school culture what it is. Manners, dress standards (including hair styles and jewelry), social protocols and all the niceties that make life for others more pleasant are important characteristics of what our students learn at Caladenia and are lauded by high schools for these characteristics each year.

    We practice these skills at school each day and so it is that our students have become pretty well self-regulating (able to solve their own conflicts and problems, most of the time). Respect, integrity, honesty and kindness to all is our mantra which we live by at Caladenia. We try to live up to it every day.  

    Before School

    When arriving inside the gates of the school, every student is asked to move straight to their classrooms for entry at 8.15am. Please ask your children to sit down outside their room quietly – do not allow them to run around playing nor go onto play equipment as there are no teachers on duty in the mornings. It is dangerous for children to run while smaller children are around at this time and could be hurt. Thank you for your help.


    Please try to toilet your children before coming to school if possible. Adults in student toilets can create an issue. Thank you for your understanding – we are trying to protect our students as much as possible.

    Student Pick-Up

    Please be on time to pick up your children after school. We cannot guarantee that someone will be in the office if we are in staff meetings or staff leaving for other appointments early. We cannot guarantee student safety if your children are left to wait, sometimes, for more than an hour after school. We do have an after school care centre at Caladenia – please ring them to look after your children is you are going to be late at all. They are called Helping Hands and their mobile number is 0448 025 638.

    Happy Labour Day

    “Whatever is worrying you right now, forget about it. Take a deep breath, stay positive and know that things will get better.”

    Best wishes.

    Pre Primary Room 1 

    This week in Room One we have been learning all about the letter P! We have been very busy making pizzas and practising our handwriting. It has been a P…P…P…perfect week!

    Year 6 Room 11

    Welcome to Year 6! There are so many new and exciting things to look forward to as we enter our final year of primary school. As we are settling into new routines and reacquainting ourselves with our fellow Year 6 peers. We started the first few weeks letting our teacher and our classmates know a little about ourselves through a bit of Pop Art. Each section was designated a different part about ourselves, such as, favourite beverage, favourite place or movie, etc.
