Hello Parents/Carers and Braeside School Community members,
I am in the Principal seat for now as Mrs Wigg is on Long Service Leave until the 9th
of November. By all accounts she is enjoying her rest and relaxation.
Well, what a busy term Term 4 is! We are all full steam ahead, training for our
Interschool Jumps Carnival on Wednesday and the Interschool Athletics on Friday. I
am sure we will give it our best, as Braeside students always do, and maybe even
come home with some trophies.
I ventured down to the Library last week to listen to the Year 5 speeches, delivered
by the nominees for Student Councillor and Sports Captain positions. I must say I
was very impressed by the amount of thought that went into the preparation of
these. Each student that delivered a speech had clearly thought about what being
an elected member would mean to them and how they would approach their duties.
Congratulations to the successful candidates.
The P&C Katanning Show fundraiser was well attended by a lot of our staff
members, with many of them giving their time to sell strawberries and cream. I
would like to acknowledge the mountain of work Corry Why and her daughter
Chelsea put into this event. Their efforts are impressive as Corry is a staff member
and does not have any children at our school. Thank you on behalf of the P&C.
At the P&C meeting last Monday the committee pledged to finish off the paving
along the playground side of Rooms 3 and 4, look into funding the student diaries for
2016 and to supply the funds to finish off the cubby in Pre-Primary. We thank them
for their support.
During Week 2 we had representatives from Foodbank come to our school and work
with the Room 5, Room 12 and Room 9 classes to spread the healthy eating
message and do cooking with the students. The Food Sensations Tour was a great
success, with students enjoying what they had prepared and learning lots about
healthy foods and eating habits along the way. We have included photos of the day
below, and onto the next page!

Food Sensation Incursion
Mr Andrew Patrick has finished his practicum in the Room 12 classroom last Friday.
We would like to wish Andrew all the best for his future teaching career and thank
him for his efforts at our school. We are sure he learnt a lot from his wonderful
mentor, Miss Dodd. Mr Patrick was presented with a lovely card and gift from the
students in Room 12 on his last day.
This year, Braeside hosted a Year 12
Workplace Learning Student, Samara
Nicholson. Miss Nicholson worked in the
Room 8 classroom with Miss Altus and with
Miss McCarley in PE. At her Valediction last
Thursday night, Samara won the “Workplace
Learning – On the Job Ttraining” award. We
would like to congratulate Samara on this
achievement and thank her for the time she
spent with us.
The children formed a great bond with Miss Nicholson, which was very evident when
she was „mobbed‟ last week when she returned to have her photo taken!
Food Sensation Incursion
As we head into the notoriously busy term, a timely reminder to parents to keep
routines of home reading and diary checks. Teachers often use diaries to
communicate with parents and it is important that students get into the habit of using
these as they are intended – as a communication tool and to keep abreast of
homework activities. Spot checks of diaries will occur this week to keep students on
their toes!
In closing I would like to congratulate two ex-Braeside students, Sheridan Kowald
and Cooper Morrow, who have been elected Head Girl and Head Boy for 2016 at
Katanning Senior High School. A fine achievement - we wish them well.
Warm Regards,
Sharon Poett

Braeside P & C Committee
Food Sensation Incursion
Braeside‟s School Canteen will not be operating for the rest of 2015.
What we will be offering, starting as of Monday the 9th November, is a canteen
service run from the Katanning Senior High School canteen and delivered to
Braeside.
The students from Braeside will be able to order lunches 5 days a week from the
KSHS Canteen Menu. The students will place their order in a box at the front office
and their lunch order will be given out from the canteen at lunch time.
When placing a lunch order it will need to be on a brown paper bag which will be
available at the Braeside front office or can be purchased at Woolworths.
Change can be given and will be returned in the bag with the child‟s lunch. KSHS
canteen offer a prepaid card, where money can be sent in the brown paper bag to
be added as a credit or you can pay the KSHS canteen in advance. You will then be
notified when your credit is nearly gone.
The food and drinks will be delivered to Braeside at the beginning of lunch with hot
and cold food and drinks stored separately, then combined as it is given to the
student. *The KSHS Canteen Menu is attached to the back of this Newsletter*
If you have any queries please contact Lynley Keley, KSHS P&C Canteen
Coordinator on 0427 235 082 [email protected]

News from the Arts
Fiddlesticks presented by Musica Viva.
Fiddlesticks performed at Braeside last Tuesday and what a fabulous
performance it was too! This magical trio of guitar, violin and cello was the
perfect introduction to chamber music for students. The three outstanding
musicians introduced string music in an entertaining and relevant way.
Chamber music is often described as a conversation between instruments and
Fiddlesticks spoke to students using music they may have recognised.
Braeside students responded really well to the live performance, with
enthusiastic reflections, despite the plague of bush flies! A child from year 1/2
class summed up his experience of the performance with his reflection. "I loved it
when they all played vibrato!" Many thanks to the hard working P and C, who
with their donation, made this an all-inclusive concert.

Year 5 Leadership Workshop with Mrs Ball
Last week the whole Year 5 student body were organised into groups where
they worked collectively to answer questions on the role and responsibility of
leaders within our school. They had to brainstorm the qualities that people
display when assisting the school and what good leaders do. They took part in
the exercise for student council nominations and in preparation for being the
school leaders next year.
Students had to define „What is Leadership?‟ Here are their responses:
“A good leader shows good sportsmanship, is organised, they are role models,
they don‟t tease people about their culture and are responsible to finish work
and stay on task. Leaders at Braeside Primary School show honour, pride and
achievement.” - Lucy, Anthea, Dean, Jaiycob
“Leadership is being respectful to others, being kind to others, being positive
and being honest. You can be relied upon to do the right thing.” – Kate, Japhet,
Lachlan, Patrick and Aaliyah
“Leadership is when someone will take responsibility for others and is a good
role model. They show respect to property, others and their teachers. Good
leaders bring out the best in others. They lend a helping hand when it is needed,
never give up and believe in others!” – Lahnee, Skye, Xu, Guraki
“Leadership is being a responsible and helpful person. Good leaders are
respectful to others and try to be the best they can be. When you show
leadership it feels like you are doing the right thing . People with leadership
believe in others and show honour, pride and achievement.” – Braydon, Louise,
Frank and Sydnee
“Leaders at Braeside Primary School bring out the very best in others. They are
positive and respectful of our school and others. Good leaders are responsible,
organised, follow teachers‟ instructions and show respect.” – Shenielle, Clayton,
Shanell, Kane
“Leadership at Braeside Primary School is supporting others, being a role model
by following instructions and welcoming others to the school community. Being
a leader is also showing school pride and always being positive. A leader helps
if someone is hurt or in need. Leaders are resourceful and show great actions
and support others. Leaders at Braeside Primary School show honour, pride
and achievement.” – Alyssa, Godeliva, Ira and Aaron

Book Fair in Term 4
Our Scholastic Book Fair will be held in Week 5 this term. It is always quite
tricky to organise these with minimal disruptions to the schools learning
schedule. This Term, to avoid disruptions to the start of the school day, the
opening times will be an hour prior to 9am only. This will ensure students are
not late to class, and hopefully our parents can attend with their child prior to the
start of their working day.
