Dear Parents and Caregivers
I hope that you have all had a good week and have managed to stay well during flu season!
P&F Fundraising Co-ordinator
The P&F is urgently seeking a fundraising co-ordinator. There is a sub- committee available to support this person and many parents willing to help out, however, we require someone to co-ordinate and delegate. If you are able to assist please contact our P & F President, Tanwyn Travers on 0421 618 298.
As part of our pastoral care at St Michael’s, we have a school social worker, Lisa Mueller, who works with students, families and staff to support your child’s wellbeing. School social workers provide interventions regarding a wide range of social, school, family and emotional issues that may impact negatively on school engagement and learning.
Lisa is available on Mondays and Wednesdays at school and is happy to meet or talk with you if you have concerns about your child’s emotional wellbeing and/or if you feel they are in need of support. Parenting is full of challenges and life has many unexpected bumps in the road, so there may be times when you need support. Please remember this service is available.
If you would like to speak with Lisa please either call her on a Monday or Wednesday or email her on Lisa.Mueller@cewa.edu.au to arrange a time to meet.

Year One Parent Roster
I have noticed the Year One parent roster at the entrance to the Year One classroom is looking very empty. I encourage any parents who are able to help out to please put their name on the roster to provide an extra pair of hands, particularly during literacy sessions.
End of Year Dates
We have been waiting on confirmation from CEWA on an end of year finish date for students. I can now confirm that for St. Michael’s, this will be Friday 13th December. Please note that each school may have different end dates this year related to their current school hours.
