Term 2 ~ Week 5 ~ 16 May 2024

Messages From the Principal

Principals Address

It has been a busy and engaging start to Term 2. The best parts of the term so far have been involving events which have brought so many parents, carers, and families on school site. These included a morning tea for our 2024 student leaders and their families, the athletics faction carnival, Deadly Ladies’ morning tea and the Year 3/4 class assembly. The school also ran an afternoon of activities to celebrate Harmony Day which was led by our wonderful chaplain, Ms Jen. We held our own ANZAC Service which was a sombre and respectful ceremony highlighting the importance of remembering those that have fort and are still fighting for us to live under a peaceful sky. We still have lots of exciting events coming up with attendance rewards, incursions/excursions, the Year 2/3 assembly and Semester 1 Reports to be sent home in Week 11.


The last two weeks of attendance has seen a positive jump into the high 70% range across the school. Our overall attendance rate so far this term is 74.2%. This means that on average, our students are absent up to 1.5 days per week. To ensure our students can get the best out of their time at Moorditj, a short-term attendance goal is for the rate to continue to increase into the 80% range by the end of Semester 1.


Generally, the students are displaying our core values of being responsible, respectful, and caring as part of the whole school Birdiya Booyi positive behaviour system. We are so thankful for our families continued support and constant reminders at home. When demonstrated, these behaviour expectations give every student the best chance to have a safe, successful, and fun day at school.

Please continue to remind your children that these values need to be displayed on the bus as well. In particular:

·         following the bus aide/driver’s instructions

·         remaining in seat using seatbelt

·         keeping hands/feet to self

·         using respectful language

Home Reading

Home Reading is an important part of our literacy strategy at Moorditj Noongar Community CollegeIt is important that children read every night for at least 10 minutes. We will send home a variety of books that are at their appropriate level. Students that get their home reading books folders signed, will earn books every 20 nights at assembly.

FREE Flu jabs available in May & June 2024

The best protection against influenza is immunisation, and all Western Australians are urged to get their flu jab ahead of the winter months to help prevent severe illness. 

Free influenza vaccines will be available to all Western Australians aged six-months and older for the months of May and June. Some providers may charge an administration fee.   

The highly contagious influenza virus can severely affect the respiratory system and cause symptoms ranging from minor to life-threatening. 

Influenza is a serious disease, especially for the most vulnerable members of our community, including older adults, young children, pregnant women, Aboriginal people and people with chronic medical conditions.

Receiving an influenza vaccine in May and June will help optimise protection over the peak period for influenza transmission in Western Australia. 

To get your free influenza vaccine, book your appointment at participating GPs, community pharmacies and Aboriginal Medical Services. 

Student Absences

If your child is sick or away from school for any reason, please ring the School to provide a reason for the absence: 9374 8800  or please reply to the text messages sent. It only takes a couple of seconds to respond. Thank you for your assistance.

Alternatively if you have Skoolbag then you can access the sick / absent note to let us know.  Simply logon to your skoolbag app, click on the Moorditj Logo at the top, then click on EForms and then you will see the sick/absent note to fill in.  


Please be advised that our buses are extremely full and we can only accommodate emergency requests to drop at another address if there is room to do so.  If you are NOT going to be home for afternoon drop off then you need to make sure someone will be there.

In addition, please make sure your children are ready and waiting outside for their morning pick-up.  The bus will only wait 2 minutes at each stop. Thank you for your assistance.
