Term 4, Week 5

School Sport WA Champion Schools Track and Field Carnival


Last Friday, selected high achievers from last term’s Primary Interschool Athletics Carnival were invited to participate in the School Sport WA Champion Schools Track and Field Carnival. The students did an outstanding job representing St Stephen’s Carramar and many achieved personal bests on the evening. Some of our amazing Year 4 athletes even took out places on the podium. Congratulations to Isla Vo Hoang (Gold in 200m and Bronze in 80m), Matipa Munjodzi (Gold in 400m and Silver in 200m), Maita Munjodzi (Silver in 400m and Bronze in 200m) and Callum Hoggart (Silver in Shot Put and 200m). Fantastic achievements everyone!

Term 4 Running Club

All students in PP to Year 6 are encouraged to join Miss Uglow on the Primary Green every Thursday morning to run as many laps around the Green as you can! No matter what your ability is, come on down to earn House points, improve your fitness, build your confidence and run your way towards a healthier lifestyle.

Each participating student will be given their own Running Club lapathon card to count their laps every week. Students will earn 1 Running Club House Point for every lap they complete around the Primary Green. Running Club lapathon cards must be left with Miss Uglow at the end of each session.

Congratulations to Neil Schoeman (3BE) and Kane Marshall (6S) who became the first ever students to join the 100 Laps Club by completing 100 laps on their lapathon cards! Both students are from Parresia and will be acknowledged at our next assembly. Well done boys, keep up the great running!

We will meet on the Primary Green every THURSDAY morning from 8.00am onwards. Come dressed in your sport uniform or normal school uniform and running shoes. You can still participate even if you are not dressed in your sport uniform! Everyone is welcome – you do not need to sign up to participate in this club. Run at your own pace and come and go as you please.

Share the Dignity ‘It’s in The Bag’

Each November Share the Dignity donate thousands of bags to women in need. Each bag is filled with essentials and gifts to help women, teenagers and new mums in crisis or emergency accommodation.

Over the past 5 years our Secondary girls have been collecting and packing these bags.

WE NEED YOU to help make 2022 our BIGGEST year and beat our previous bag record of 130 bags!

Please consider donating your preloved handbags or pop into your local Salvo’s and grab a bag from there. We also want those unopened toiletries hiding in the back of your bathroom cupboard. Most importantly, we need sanitary products, unopened pads and tampons, cups or underwear. Women shouldn’t have to choose between feeding themselves and their children or buying sanitary items.

Donations can be dropped into the Reception Office until Tuesday 15 November.


At OSHClub we are super excited to introduce The Brekkie Bunch

The Brekkie Bunch is a new and free add-on club for our kids to learn, cook and eat yummy breakfast foods, before their school day starts! The kids will have fun with their friends’ following recipes and developing cooking skills, while learning about nutritious breakfast options……..and the best bit, they get to enjoy the fruits of their labour before they start their school day!

If you would like to learn more, please feel free to reach out either via email, phone or by dropping into the service! We’re always super keen to chat!

We are in the 3rd transportable next to the school oval, book in online at www.oshclub.com.au or contact us on 0478 066 366 with any queries.

Final Day of Term 4 Celebrations (Wednesday 7 December) 

t’s hard to believe that we are already planning our end of year celebrations 🙂! To end the year on a high note, please note that we will be holding a final Assembly at approximately 11:45am in the Primary Forum followed by a Fun Colour Run on The Green at approximately 12:15pm 🙂! All parents are welcome to attend! Students will be dismissed from school at 1pm. Lots of fun to end our 2022 academic year! We suggest families bring a few spare garbage bags to cover their car seats as students will no doubt be a little messy after their run 🙂!

Below is some important information to note for this event:

What do students need to wear?

The optimal effect of a Colour Run occurs when participants wear a plain, white t-shirt.  Old clothes that you will not mind getting slightly stained (see below regarding possible staining). We also recommend for students to wear goggles.

Do all students need to run?

The Colour Run will not be compulsory. However, all students are encouraged to participate and enjoy the celebration 🙂.

How is the colour administered?

A running course on The Green will be set up. Designated staff will be stationed along the course to gently dispense colour powder along the way. All colour powder will be aimed between shoulder & hip level.

What is the colour made from? Does it stain?

The coloured powder we are using is made from 99% corn-starch and natural food grade dyes. We’ve been told it doesn’t stain, but you never know… We feel it would be best to wear old sneakers or opt to run with bare feet. Please note that we do not take any responsibility for costs associated with the removal of colour.

Will the Colour ruin clothes or running shoes?

The colour does wash out after the event. As with anything dirty, the sooner you wash it, the better. We suggest wearing items that you wouldn’t mind getting colourful. Please note that we do not take any responsibility for costs associated with the removal of colour.
