FROM DR ROBERTS
Thank you to the P&C for organising and running the Neon Disco on Friday 11 Jun. From all feedback received, the Disco was a wonderful success. On behalf of us all, thank you P&C members.
Another fabulous SMARTS Day was enjoyed by all who participated. The weather was perfect as was the day for students and adults, the latter also enjoyed a scrumptious lunch. An enormous thank you to everyone and especially to Mrs Everall, Miss Randell and their team for their thorough organisation.
End of semester reports for P-6 will be emailed home on Friday 25 June so please ensure we have your correct email address. We send reports home one week before the end of term so if you have any questions for teachers, you will have the opportunity to speak to them before the holidays. Kindergarten reports will be hard copies and will also be sent home next week.
SCHOOL PROCESSES – SECONDARY SCHOOLS
Many of you may be aware that Hawker Park Primary School (HPPS) is in Warwick Senior High School’s (WSHS) local in-take area. This means that students who are in WSHS’s in-take area generally gain automatic admission into the school.
At the end of term 1 both the Principal of WSHS and the Principal of HPPS organised a get together for early this term. At the meeting many topics were discussed but of relevance to the HPPS community may be the following:
- HPPS is happy to add a flyer provided from any secondary school, including WSHS, to our Kindergarten information packs.
- As with any secondary school principal, the WSHS Principal is always welcome to speak to parents, at any forum to be arranged, but to let the school know when this could happen so that the information/promotional talk may be either a specific meeting, or an agenda item to an existing forum. Such presentations will be advertised to enable interested parents to attend.
- Promotional talks given by secondary school representatives from any institution may speak to parents with their children after school hours
- HPPS will continue to add requested WSHS notices to our Community Notice Board and note these in our Hawker Headlines under Community Notices. This is our process for all external community notices.
As parents make decisions for the future schooling of their children beyond primary school, we encourage them to contact the desired secondary school directly. If we can be of any assistance, please contact our front office and speak to one of the Admin team.

MAKE A MOVE – MRS BARRETT
What an amazing showcase of dances yesterday, they were all fabulous.
Every student put in 100% effort into their performance. Their costumes were really creative and effective on stage.
Each student was able to perform a piece of their own choreography.
I’m so proud of our Hawker Park community.
Thank you to all the parents/Grandparents who were able to come and watch our show.
Thanks Miss Baronas for your knowledge and love for dance.
I can’t wait to see what the children have install for us next year.
“The last 2 soccer games have been amazing. Both were played at different schools, which means BUS! On the bus everyone sang their ABC’s and other nursery rhymes. After arriving at the grounds, we unpacked and split up into netballers and Socceroo’s. Us Socceroo’s warmed up with some goal shooting and then we got into the game. We emerged victorious in both our school matches. Our team is a unique mix of players who work very well together. We hope to do well in the upcoming lightning carnival, held at Halidon primary school oval. Halidon is the only team; we are yet to beat. Good luck Hawker!!!”

“Week 8’s game was against Dalmain. Both teams played great but could not take out the win. We played last weeks game at Marangaroo and both A and B team won. Everyone’s skills are improving and we all are having a very fun time. This week we have the main lightning carnival at Halidon. We will play 5 games, and hopefully we can come back with lots of wins. Good luck Hawker Park.”

So many great activities all happening at the same time! What a day.
Thank you to all our leaders comprising of teachers, Education Assistants and community members.
Your time effort and enthusiasm in preparing and presenting your activities provided a great range of experiences for our Hawker Park students.
We hope to see our volunteers back again next year with even more people recruited along with their SMARTS to make another great SMARTS Day. Please register your interest in taking a group with Michelle in the front office (94222000) for next year ASAP while your ideas may still be fresh.
Many parents worked together in pairs to present an activity which also worked well, even if you are just thinking about an idea please ring me and I can discuss it with you to further develop it for the day.
A huge thank you to Dr Roberts for supporting our ideas and to the SMARTS leadership team Felicity Randell, Michelle Atkinson and Nigel Kirkby who worked together like clockwork to make it happen. What a pleasure to be part of such a team. Also thank you to Chevonne Burr for preparing the food on the day and Sandie Beard for her efforts with resourcing.
Thank you parents for preparing your children and helping them make their selections. I’m sure many opportunities arose to discuss strengths, interests and ‘having a go’ at something new. These all help your children to grow, even more, in their knowledge of self.
Enjoy the snapshots from our day!
P&C – DISCO
Thank you to everyone who attended our P&C Neon Glow Disco.
We had a huge attendance of 206 colourful children, who showed us their amazing dance moves and their bright smiles too!!
A big THANK YOU to all who volunteered and donated items, to make it a successful night. We could not have held a safe and fun evening for our beautiful Hawker Park children without all of your support.
A special mention to our DJ Scott, Rosie for organising the games, Emma and the canteen crew, Kym, Jes, Karen.H and our first aider Karen.R. You were all amazing!!
