Parent Child Camp Out 2021

The campout at school where parents are allowed to come along with their child and camp out at school is going to be on Friday October 15th. We hope the weather forecast will be for fine weather.

At this campout a parent needs to attend with the child but it is fine for you to be responsible for another child if their parent can’t come. Please note that staff are not responsible for children on the night, parents are.

The requirements are as follow:

Students and parents can arrive from 5pm at school to set up their tent on the lawn behind B Block. Access can be gained by driving down the fire break track behind the Kindy building and parking can be on the basketball court. Otherwise parking can be on the gravel area behind the shed. All food etc needs to be provided by you. There will be BBQs available and B Block for water etc for washing up. There will be an urn. There will be ice-creams provided during the movie.

The programme outline is:

5-5:45 set up tents and then play games

5:45-6:45pm Tea time

6:45-7:30pm Undercover area games

7:30-8:30pm torch walk and camp fire

8:30-10pm DVD in the classroom

6:30-7am Rise and shine for own breakfast and heading home by 8 am

This is a lot of fun as well as a lot of work by you but well worth it. We hope that you will be able to attend to socialize with your child and fellow parents and play games with your child.

Please let us know if you able to attend.

Kind regards

Gooseberry Hill Primary School Challenge

On Friday 24 September (last day of this term), students from Pre Primary to Year 6 will participate in the annual GHPS Challenge. The aim of this challenge is to encourage our students to explore their own natural environment whilst putting into practise the virtues we talk about at school such as perseverance, courage and determination.

The students will be walking a track from the school via Hill Street, through the Kalamunda National Park, near Spring Road and through to the Bibbulmun track and into Jorgensen Park. Parents and friends are most welcome to join us on this walk. Please note that this walk is not suitable for prams or people who have difficulty walking up steep hills. The actual walk will take approx. 60 to 90 minutes to Jorgensen Park.

Students will leave school at 9:00am to begin the walk. There will be several stops along the way and we aim to get to Jorgensen Park by 10:30. At the park the students will have morning tea and a rest before the return journey. All students will be allowed to walk back to school as this is the ultimate challenge for the students but there will be a bus at Jorgensen Park to take the Pre-Primary children back.

The students will need the following on the day:

  • Sports uniform or free dress clothes (suitable for bush walking).
  • Gold coin donation.
  • Track shoes or similar for walking – NO SKATE SHOES/ SANDALS etc
  • Water bottle (can be refilled at Jorgensen Park).
  • Raincoat (if necessary), hat and sunscreen otherwise. 

As we are going into a national park we do not have ANY facilities for rubbish so children will be given a piece of fruit to eat on the way. No other food is to be taken on the walk. At Jorgensen Park we hope to be supplying morning tea (pikelets made by Year 1-3 school families) for all the walkers. Please let the office know if you can provide some pikelets- we need approximately 840 pikelets on the day.

There will be a coffee van at Jorgensen Park for staff and parent volunteers to purchase a hot drink. Lunch will be back at school.

There will be teachers supervising the walk but we would more than welcome parents and guardians to come along. This will be a great day for all involved and we hope you will be able to come along to be a part of the Challenge.

The bus will only be able to accommodate the students so please organise for car pooling or leaving a car at Jorgensen Park for the return trip if you do not want to walk back.

Any queries please contact me.


Kind regards
