MAWA Have Sum Fun Maths Competition
Mr Chambers, our PEAC coordinator, arranged for a group of students to participate in the Have Sum Fun Live competition. It required the children to complete 4 rounds of 8 questions and the questions are extremely challenging. They are designed to challenge the children’s problem solving abilities.
There were 23 teams from around Australia. Wandina Primary & Mt Tarcoola Primary children formed a team of 4. They were phenomenal, finishing fourth in the competition! What a great achievement! Both schools are very proud of their students!
Last Tuesday, Wandina Primary School had two teams participate in the Numero competition and it was a great day of competition.
Here are the top 6 placegetters:
1st Place - Dongara Destroyers
2nd Place - Mt Tarcoola Takers
2nd Place - Wandina Wonderkids
4th Place - Dongara Dominators
5th Place - Mt Tarcoola Denominators
6th Place - Walkaway Smarties not Jellybeans
Wandina is very proud of the students who represented our school and we would like to thank Mr McKenzie for coaching them.
Interschool Sports Carnival
Woo!! Hoo!! Wandina won the shield for this event. Our children were amazing, they gave everything when they were competing against the other schools and were rewarded for their efforts by winning the carnival. Staff who attended were very proud of the way the children conducted themselves, showing true sportsmanship. As we were hosting the event this year, we have to give accolades to Mr Sumich who organised the event. The day ran smoothly and other schools commented on the great organisation.
Results for the Carnival:
Wandina - 460 (Even though Wandina had the highest results they couldn’t win this shield due to winning the overall shield, as per the rules in the Geraldton booklet)
St Lawrences - 339 (winning school due to the reasons above)

Waggrakine - 298
Mt Tarcoola - 236

Cross Country 2022
Last Friday, Wandina Primary were awarded the Cross Country Shield at the event, but afterwards it was discovered that there had been an error in the calculations and St Lawrence should have been awarded the shield. As this has not happened in the past, the organising school was to make a decision about how to proceed and they have acknowledged their error. In the spirit of true sportsmanship, Wandina have now handed the shield to St Lawrence Primary School.
We would like to acknowledge the participation of all students at the Cross Country.
This morning students munched and crunched but could only manage a Quokka Chew! Then they tried again and everyone in Wandina heard them do a Crocodile Crunch!!! We heard cheering from everywhere; even the Vege Man heard the children and decided to visit! Mr O was so excited that he also had his photo taken.
THE BIG CRUNCH
The Big Crunch is on Wednesday 14th September at 10am. This is when we discover whether the children nibble like mice or CRUNCH like CROCODILES! We have the Crunch-o-meter ready to gauge the crunches, so make sure that if you live in Wandina, listen carefully and you might hear the crunching!
Interschool Cross Country Champions!
Today, our Cross Country runners competed against the other schools in the Chapman Division. We only had a few children get in the top four but we had lots in the top 10. Wandina was the highest scoring team and were awarded the Cross Country Shield. It was definitely a team effort! Congratulations to all the participants; we are so proud of your achievement and thank you Mr Sumich for all the time that you have put into training the team. 😊

Parent Open Night
Tonight, the classrooms were open for our parents to come and look at all the amazing work that the children have been doing this term. It was so lovely to see parents back in the school now the Covid restrictions have eased. So many happy faces could be seen everywhere and we thank the parents, children and staff for making it an awesome night.
Dear Parents and Carers
From Friday 9 September, public health measures will ease. The isolation period for COVID-19 positive cases and close contacts will reduce from 7 days to 5 days, provided they are free of symptoms at the time they leave isolation. Mask requirements for public and passenger transport have also changed.
People who test positive for COVID-19 must isolate for a minimum of 5 days and can leave isolation if they no longer have symptoms. People who are still symptomatic must remain in isolation until symptoms clear.
Close contacts with no symptoms can continue to attend school and do not have to isolate for the 5 days if they:
• undertake a daily Rapid Antigen Test (RAT)
• wear a mask outside the home (Year 7 and above).
Testing for COVID-19 for students who are symptomatic or as a close contact, remains an effective way to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our schools. If you need additional RATs, please contact us.
Please let the school know if your child tests positive for COVID-19 or is a close contact.
Masks will no longer be required to be worn on public or passenger transport. Masks are an important measure to reduce transmission and are still encouraged to be worn in crowded indoor settings when people are unable to physically distance. Students and staff can choose to wear a mask at school, at any time.
Please contact the front office if you have any queries about COVID-19 safe measures in our school. Thank you for your continued support of the school community in keeping our school COVID-19 safe.

Today we had a number of children reach reading milestones and they came to the office to select books. The Pre Primary children are our superstars, with 18 receiving books today. They were very excited and took their time to select just the right book! Happy reading tonight!

Public education in Western Australia
WOW! What a fantastic turn out today for Book week. Last night, when the children were ‘Dreaming with their Eyes Open’ they were not aware that they were being transformed into some very strange and exciting characters. When they arrived at school we could not recognise them. Luckily, over the course of the day, the children slowly awoke from their dreams and we saw them return to normal. What an amazing day!
