and Reminders

Welcome back to Term 2

If students are wearing the skirt a reminder that its length needs to be to the bottom of the knee and that the blazer is to the outer garment - not the jumper.


At the end of Term 2 the Easter raffle was drawn. This year we raised nearly $2000.00, which is a fantastic amount. Thanks to everyone for their efforts, both with ticket sales and the donation of Easter eggs. The money raised will go to our charities, including the Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project.


Year 8 won the pizza lunch for the most Easter Eggs donated and raffle tickets sold. As I prepare this report we are looking at the weather forecast and crossing fingers that the Athletics Carnival can go ahead. Mother Nature may not be on our side this year but we live in hope!


Next Monday we will celebrate Mother's Day with our staff who are currently on maternity leave. I would like to wish all mums, aunties, grandmothers and those women in the lives of our students a wonderful day on Sunday.


Killester College is concerned about the safety and well-being of all our students and is committed to protecting students and young people at risk of anaphylactic reactions. Many of you will know someone who is affected by anaphylaxis, a life threatening allergic reaction. 


Our College does its best to be an allergy aware school. Killester relies on parents' support in providing us with the necessary paperwork, medical action plans and/or medication which are up to date, so that staff are able to provide the best care possible for their daughter. 


Staff have had training in severe allergy management and we have implemented strategies to help keep students at risk of anaphylaxis as safe as we can. We now have a number of students who live with the risk of anaphylaxis to foods, asthma and insect stings. 


Whilst these students can usually care for themselves, we ask that you help us educate your child on the importance of not sharing food with others, washing hands after eating and calling out to an adult if they think their friend with allergies is sick. 


With increased awareness and understanding of anaphylaxis, we can all work to make the College a safer place for these students.


Best wishes for the Term ahead.

Family Learning Centre


Are you too shy to talk to people because you cannot speak English very well? Well you can improve your English because Killester College runs a ‘Conversational English Class for adults’ every Monday morning at 10:00am till 12:00pm during school term, for parents, family members and friends.  Classes are fun, where you are safe to try your new language skills in a friendly place. You will learn words that you may use everyday while at the same time make new friends who will encourage you to talk in English.  We also talk about things that are happening in our community.  


We would love you to join us to help improve your English and at the same time have lots of fun.  Mondays 10.00am till 12.00pm in the Family Learning Centre at Killester College. Please contact Loreto Cannon at the College or via email at to book.  We hope to see you there.

COVID and Rapid Antigen Testing Instructions

Please email report if your daughter has covid or is a household contact.  This applies over the holiday period also so we can keep track of students who are then exempt for the 8 week period after contracting covid.  The office is open daily from 8.30am to 3.30pm (closed public holidays).

Front Office Reminders

LEAVING EARLY – If your daughter is leaving school early for any reason, please make sure she has a signed note from Parent/Guardian to give to her Homeroom Teacher in the morning. Your daughter needs to then bring that signed note with her to the Front Office at the time of her departure. It is your daughter’s responsibility to come to the office at the time arranged for pick up. Students are NOT PERMITTED to make their own way home or to an appointment. A Parent or Guardian MUST come into the front office to pick up the student. Students are asked NOT to make contact with Parents/Guardians directly via their mobile phone, to arrange to go home while at school as use of their mobile phone is not permitted. This contact will be made by Front Office or teaching staff.


LATE TO SCHOOL – Please make sure your daughter signs in at the Front Office if she is late to school. If she does not sign in at the Front Office you will receive an SMS asking to explain her absence.


ABSENCES – If your daughter is going to be absent from school for any reason please make sure you ring the Front Office to inform them, preferably before 9.00 am. The Front Office staff will then mark your daughter’s roll accordingly so you do not receive an SMS.
