Principal's news

End of term 2

A reminder that Friday we will begin our staggered dismissals from 2.10pm. 

Friday marks the end of a historical term and we hope the Covid-19 situation stabilises and allows us to slowly return to normal functioning. We expect to see updates to our operational guidelines that will provide us with updates as to whether we will need to continue with staggered starts, finishes and play times and we will communicate any changes via Compass as soon as the advice is given to the school. Sometimes this can lag a bit from minister’s announcements on the news to what this means at BWPS, but rest assured we will communicate as promptly as possible.


P&F and Community Support

On behalf of all staff at BWPS I would like to thank the P&F and wider community for supporting us all with a District Brewer voucher. I can’t tell you how happy and appreciative our staff were when receiving their voucher. Covid-19 has been tough on all of us and the community support has been a comfort. We have all executed our duty very well in assuring a safe, happy learning environment for our kids. They have in turn stepped up and supported their community. We are very proud of what we have achieved together and wish you all a well-earned break.


Reports will be released early next term and parent teacher interviews will also occur. We will release information about the process via Compass.


Enjoy the holidays.

Steven Capp
