Safe and Happy Holidays

The staff at Mildura West Primary School would like to wish all our families a safe and happy Christmas. We look forward to seeing you all in 2020.

Your Child’s School Report

Next Wednesday your child will bring home his/her end of year report.

As you know, our teachers write reports regularly, throughout the year. These are in the form of a CAT (Common Assessment Task) which is online.

Every child who has been at West for the entire year should have received about 15 – 20 of these small reports. Because our system of student reporting is ongoing, and includes many small reports throughout the year, we do not write a large report midyear or at the end of the year.

Consequently your child’s report will include:

  • An indication where he/she is in accordance with the Victorian Curriculum (indicated by a black dot)
  • An indication on his/her Work Habits
  • The child’s written reflection
  • Areas for improvement
  • A curriculum overview from the Specialist teachers.
  • A hard copy of previous CATs

Christmas Raffle

Our Christmas Hamper Raffle is on again!

Each class has a donation box set up in their classroom – please donate one item per student to put into the class hamper. Non-perishable items (Christmas decorations, Christmas themed table wear, toys, beauty products are all terrific hamper items.) Each child will also have one raffle book to sell. Tickets are $1 each and you are welcome to sell both sides of the tickets if you like! Please return raffle books and hamper donations by Friday, December 13th. The winners will be drawn on Wednesday 18th December, at our morning concert. More raffle books are available at the front office if you wish to sell more!

Mini Concert

MWPS Mini Concert Next Wednesday our concert is on and it’s going to be great!! The weather is predicted to be extreme (45c) so it’s lucky we are having our celebration before we all melt later in the day. 
Here’s a rundown of the morning. 


7.30am – Breakfast available on the oval. A yummy menu will be provided by our School Council, the Lions Club & our Canteen. 
o Bacon and egg roll - $4 
o Sausage in bread - $2 
o Fruit cup - $1.50 
o Cup of Juice – Free 
o Coffee – $4 small, $4.50 Medium, $5 Large 

About 7.50am performance will begin on the oval. 

  • Children need to be with their class teacher at 7.50am ready to perform. 
  • People can come earlier for a quick breaky, or eat after the entire performance has concluded. 
  • If possible, we would appreciate if everyone in the audience please sit and watch the entire performance, rather than walk around purchasing food in-between items. 
  • The Grade Prep, One and Two children will be singing and playing musical instruments for their items. 
  • The Grade Three, Four, Five & Six children will be dancing. 

8.50am Performance will conclude

  • People may purchase breaky after the performance too if they like. 

What to bring. 

  • We ask that parents & carers bring a rug to sit on or a chair. 
  • Those with rugs will sit at the front & those with chairs will be asked to sit behind them. This will ensure everyone can see their children perform. We will place some Bunting on the oval, to indicate where the chairs can be placed, thanks for your co-operation with this. Costumes 
  • Please read the costume list. 
  • It’s a “no fuss” concert but it would be super if children could wear the colours listed below. No need to purchase plain T Shirts – those with prints or motifs are fine. 
  • Children can stay in the coloured T- shirt for the entire day if they like.
