A huge thank you to all the students who participated in the MS Readathon and to everyone in the community who sponsored them. We raised a phenomenal $15,895 and read 1,775 books, smashing both our goals!
We are so incredibly proud of our students and thankful to everyone for supporting such a worthy cause and helping to bring awareness to the challenges faced by those living with neurological conditions.
The money raised will go towards family fun days, family camps and support groups for those in our community who live with a neurological condition.
We are yet to find out if we are officially the top fundraising school in Australia, but it is looking promising. Fingers crossed!

R U OK? Thursday 8 September – Wear Yellow to School
R U OK? is a harm prevention charity that encourages people to stay connected and have conversations that can help others through difficult times in their lives. R U OK? Day is on Thursday, 8 September and we invite all students (and any family members bringing their children to school!) to wear yellow as a reminder of the importance of asking “R U OK?”.
Follow the four steps to starting a conversation:
- Ask R U OK?
- Encourage Action
- Check in
Parents are invited to visit the website below for some excellent information for their children and for themselves. We look forward to seeing a sea of yellow as our Wembley community asks “R U OK?”.

Compass for Parents – We go live in Term 4!
This term, our school officers and Admin team have been working with Compass behind the scenes to prepare our school Compass portal. Compass is a school management system that will enable the school to have a more streamlined approach to communications.
Prior to the start of Term 4, you will receive an email with your login details. You will be able to use the app or website to login and view your child’s profile. Until then, staff are being trained on how to use the platform and the portal is being configured to meet the school’s needs. We will begin a staged rollout starting Term 4 with attendance and a school and class news feed.
Please follow the link here to read more about the Compass platform.
Chaplain Corner – Mindful Mondays
The Juniors braved the currently chilling weather yesterday morning. We began with getting our Vitamin-sea and tasting lemons. By the reactions displayed lemons may not be their favourite food. The juniors were then tasked with creating a raft. We had all hands and creativity on deck. There is nothing ‘mainstream’ about these rafts and we look forward to testing them on water!
Pre-primary – Year 2 Athletics Carnival
Last Wednesday, it was our junior students turn for team games, sprints and relays on the school oval. It was perfect weather and a great community turnout for the morning. We were so proud of all students who took part, giving their very best efforts and joining in with such enthusiasm. It was so much fun having our Kindy students join us to start the morning with a fun running race followed by team games for our PP-Year 2 students.
Thank you to Amy Suijendorp, Gemma Blewitt and Caroline Read for all their help with the organisation. It was Amy’s final stint in the scoring tent after 12 years assisting us as a parent volunteer. Thank you Amy! We also thank all teachers, EAs and Mr Bowman and Mrs Watson for all the organisation and training prior to the event. A great day all round and congratulations to each faction for their efforts, results are as follows.
