Principal's Report

Welcome back for Term 3. It has been great to see our whole school community reconnecting so positively after the holidays.


Living the WUPS Vision

Over the past 2.5 years we have been working hard with “learning at the centre of everything we do in a culture of kindness”. Everyone feels welcomed and respected. WUPS staff are aspirational and expect our learners to achieve their best. Essential to this is positive relationships in a safe environment where the school community feels valued. I am interested to hear your feedback on our journey. How are we going living our vision?




Value Spotlight – Courage

This term we are focusing on the value of Courage. Courage is accepting challenging and embracing opportunities. Today we were privilege to have ex-student Callie Enright speak to us about how she has shown courage as a learner since leaving WUPS. Callie focused on the courage required when transitioning into grade 7, and the immense opportunities she has been offered because she has taken positive risks. Callie stated, “Opportunities are there, you just need to have the courage to try things you never thought you would.”



It is important to be aware that courage means different things for different people. It also looks and feels different in a range of contexts. Courage allows us to take risks, explore new ideas, look at opportunities in a positive light and to have a growth mindset.

Courage looks like:

  • feeling fear and doing it anyway
  • being prepared to go into difficult, unknown or new situations
  • not being afraid of judgement
  • asking for help when something is not working


Check out a DoE video of our value of courage.





Book Week Friday 26 August

Each year across Australia, the CBCA brings children and books together celebrating CBCA Book Week. We will be celebrating Australian children's literature and by holding a book character parade, sharing our favourite books and amazing displays. This will be in the hall at 9:15am on Friday 26 August.

The theme is about stepping into your own story, dreaming with eyes open...
listening to Country as the first storyteller...
learning from friends who help you on your way.

What will you come dressed as in 2022?





Student Wellbeing and Engagement Survey


Attention: Parents and Carers of students in Year 4,5 & 6

The wellbeing of our students is important to us - we want to hear how students feel, and think, about different things going on in their lives.


Those in Year/s 4,5 & 6 at WUPS will be taking part in the Student Wellbeing and Engagement Survey. The results from this survey will help us get a picture of the current wellbeing of our students, and what we can do to improve future wellbeing for learning. The more students who take part, the clearer our picture will be. 


The Student Wellbeing and Engagement Survey is part of the Department of Education’s Child and Student Wellbeing Strategy .


The details for the survey are:

When:                                        Wednesday 31 August (up until 23 September if students are absent)

Who:                                          Years 4,5 & 6

What do I need to do:               You and your child don’t need to do anything. The survey will be done in class time and will not require your child to prepare in any way.


A letter with more information has been sent home with all Year 4,5 &6 students, including Frequently Asked Questions and a form to sign and return to the school if you do not want your child to participate in the survey.   

If you would like further information, please contact Mrs Jenny Rodman. 

Thank you for supporting us to ensure that all our learners are safe, feel supported and are able to flourish, so they can engage in learning.


Staffing Update

This term we have welcomed Miss Phillips as our Art teacher, Miss King as K/P and LiL teacher and Mrs Rodman as AST – Support Teacher. Please be sure to find them in the school, say hello and let them know who is in your family.



Yours in partnership
