WALK SAFELY TO SCHOOL DAY
Friday, 23 May is Walk Safely to School Day, when all children between the ages 5 and 13 are encouraged to walk to school safely, practice important road-safety skills and have fun!
You can get involved by colouring in the WSTSD poster at walk.com.au asking your local P&C to help support the event, and walking to school on the day. Parents who drive their children to school can park the car at least a kilometer away from the school, and walk the rest of the way. This is a fantastic way to exercise with your children and teach them the importance of road safety.
Take the challenge – walk safely to school on Friday, 23 May, learn important skills, and have a lot of fun as you participate in this healthy event! - Student Councillors – Kate and Luke

SURVEY RESULTS
During Term 1 we conducted a survey via the Liaison Parents about Kindy Start Times and Communications. We were very pleased with the high number of responses we received.
As a result of the key findings from the survey (78% in favour) we will keep the current Kindy times as is. We will also continue with the current broad communication plan i.e. send fortnightly newsletters and information via Parent Liaison representatives. The School Board will report on current issues via the school newsletter and the school website. We will also continue to promote the School Website as the first point of contact. Parent information sessions will be held on weekday evenings. Thank you to those parents who complete our short survey once a term. It is important for parents to know that we act upon the survey results and will continue to do so.
TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT
We realise the traffic situation in Killarney Street is horrific. Thanks to those who are adhering to the rules, patience and courtesy is the key in the short term. A traffic management plan is being partially funded by the P&C and the recommendations from this will be prioritised as a matter of urgency.
SUPERVISION AFTER SCHOOL
It has been great to see the school facilities being used for hockey and netball after school. We appreciate the increased level of supervision for siblings, as this has been an issue in the past. We have more injuries than the Eagles and Dockers, with a spate of broken arms in Year 4 and 5, impacting on our netball teams. I would like it noted that all these accidents have occurred out of school.
BOOK CLUB
Term 2's Issue of Book Club is out now. All orders are to be placed in the mailbox in the Harbeck Library before Friday, 23 May. Late orders will not be accepted. Thank you for supporting Book Club.

Eagles Rock Our School

On Monday, 12 May  three players from the West Coast Eagles Dean Cox, Chris Masten and Xavier Ellis came to our school, as part of the "Eagles Rock My School" program. They spoke about staying healthy and fit and answered questions from the Year 5 to 7 students.After the talk they visited some classrooms to sign autographs and played a game of footy with the MHPS Footy team in front of a very enthusiastic audience! It was great to see Mr Thompson excited to have his photograph taken with the EAGLES players.
Room 15's "Windy Day"
The Pre-primary students in Room 15 have leapt into reading this term, through the new shared reading program. This week, they had a lot of fun playing out the story of the ‘Windy Day’. In small groups, using their expressive voices and dramatic role play, they acted out the characters in the book! The king had lost his crown in the storm!! Can the others help him find it??

Perth Wildcats
visit MHPS!
Two players from the Perth Wildcats paid a visit to Room 39 on Monday 12 May. My family won a competition to have them visit our school and coach some basketball skills to our class for an hour.
Matt Knight and Jesse Wagstaff taught us some great games, such as "Golden Child" and "In the Water On the Bank", to help with our running, shooting and jumping skills.
We all had a great time with the Widcats and Jesse and Matt really enjoyed their time with us. Everyone went home with an autograph.
Go Wildcats! -By Zoe, Room 39
