Minister’s Statement to Address Violence in Schools

We believe every child has the right to be safe at school. We provide learning environments that foster good behaviour and respect for your children and those around them.

Fortunately, most students attending public schools in Western Australia are able to learn in safe and supportive environments. At times, though, some students can be physically aggressive. This is never acceptable as it can cause psychological and physical harm to those involved, as well as disruption to teaching and learning. 

The State Government has released a Statement to address violence in schools. It sets out 10 actions to help school staff, families and communities work together on this complex issue. Programs and resources will be available for parents to support their children and where appropriate parents and staff will work closely to ensure their children maintain positive behaviour at school. A copy of the Statement is available on the Department’s website at education.wa.edu.au.

It is important to understand that these changes focus on students who have intentionally been physically aggressive towards others. Students with a disability who either cannot manage their behaviour or do not intend to harm others are not the target of this plan. 

As parents, you also play a vital role. Your children benefit from you modelling and rewarding positive behaviour. I look forward to your ongoing support to keep our school a safe place for all.

Yours sincerely

Dr Pasco Putrino

Wednesday’s Early Close for 2019

From the beginning of the 2019 school year, our school bell times will change to reflect the recent decision approved by the School Board. Classes will now finish and students released at 2.30 pm every Wednesday instead of the current 3.00 pm. Each period on the Wednesday will reduce by 6 minutes to 58 minutes.

This change allows teachers a common time free from classes to hold meetings, professional learning communities and other non-teaching work as required for improving student learning. The inability for staff to meet and collaborate without interrupting classes during the normal school day has been a constraint. A common time addresses this issue.

The 30-minute reduction in overall teaching to 1570 minutes over the week is still above the minimum requirement of 1550 minutes. The outcomes from the effective use of this time will more than compensate the small reduction in teaching time.

Bus times will not change. Students travelling home by bus will be supervised from 2.30pm until the bus leaves.


Yours sincerely

Dr Pasco Putrino
