This week our interschool athletics team competed at Bateman PS and won the Interschool Athletics Meritorious Shield, which is awarded to the best school on handicap. Congratulations to the Richmond Team! Special mention to our medallists – Ruby Cuthbert (gold), Cruz Sowden, Poppy Beekhuizen and Ollie Neesham (bronze). There is a photo on Facebook.
We have a new chaplain!
We welcomed Mitra Cole this week and she will work on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please make contact with her if you feel she can assist your child. Her services are non- religious and she acts as part of our pastoral care team.

All year 6 parents have been invited to the graduation ceremony on Thursday 6 December at Swan Yacht Club. We will end the year with a final assembly on Wednesday 12 December to which everyone is invited. At the assembly, end of year awards will be presented, the year 6 and kindy students will perform and the chorale will sing.
At the end of semester, all student reports will be distributed electronically. This means that all parents will get their reports on the same day and they can be electronically stored or printed out at home. Please can everyone ensure that Lara has their correct email address by emailing her on Lara.Carter@education.wa.edu.au or phoning her on 9339 5055.
