Hi, my name is Stephen Bevan and I am Principal at Madeley Primary School in Perth, Western Australia. Research shows that open and clear communication between home and school is important which is why I have created this blog. As Principal of Madeley Primary School I value your opinions and encourage your comments. Feel free to comment on any of the posts. Comments are moderated prior to going live on the blog.

I will endeavour to provide you with regular and informative posts about our school and its activities. I ask that your comments be constructive and positive with any concerns or complaints directed to me personally at school.

Madeley Primary School prides itself on the positive, open and friendly culture that has been established. Our core values of Curriculum, Community and Care are guiding principles that shape our school.

P&C Meeting

It was great to meet the P&C Executive team and all the parent members at last night's meeting. The school is certainly well represented although there is always room for more parents to be involved. The amount of financial support provided by the P&C this year has been amazing and many thanks go to all the parents who have contributed their time, physical resources and money. David Belcastro, P&C President has indicated that he will not be available for the role in 2015 and will need to be replaced. I am sure that his leadership will be missed.

Below is my report to P&C

Some matters raised at the meeting were:
  1. Safety regarding the use of kiss-and-drive and parking on the grass. Parents are reminded that the safety of students is of utmost importance. The grass area is not for parent parking (only student teachers have been given permission to park there). Please  use the kiss-and-drive the way that it was intended. Do not stop the flow of traffic by parking in this area. The P&C will be installing limestone blocks around the grass area at the north east corner of the school.
  2. There are still plenty of P&C recipe books available for a bargain price of $25. Please support the school by purchasing a book (they would make excellent Christmas presents).
  3. Additional P&C funding has become available for the school to use. We will be gathering requests for funding from staff in the next week.
  4. Students being allowed to access play areas off-site and climb trees. I have explored the issue of tree climbing with the Wanneroo Shire. Due to a number of reason including student safety and duty of care, students will not be permitted to climb trees. I am developing a school policy for nature play incorporating the off-site area. I will communicate this to parents when it is complete.
