The school website is an amazing resource that enables us to post photos and activities that your child completes throughout the year. It is also an excellent tool for parent and community communication which allows you to keep up to date with what it happening in our class and around the school. I regularly update our class page and add a reminder on our weekly classroom noticeboard, our Connect page and also in class newsletters to remind you to regularly check the page.
Welcome to Year 3!
My name is Luke Riseberry, I moved from Perth originally in 2004 for only one term but have been lucky enough to call Kalgoorlie my home ever since.
My first two years in Kalgoorlie I taught at Hannans Primary School. I have taught at North Kalgoorlie Primary School since 2006.
I achieved Senior Teacher status in 2014 in the Education Department which acknowledges the extra roles and responsibilities I have at our school. I have taught Year 3 for the majority of my time at NKPS and have been the Year 3 Phase Leader for the last 10 years.
I am passionate about North Kalgoorlie Primary School. My wife teaches here and my daughter is also a student.
I look forward to establishing a positive working partnership with yourself and your child.

Term 1 Classroom Noticeboard
The physical copy of this noticeboard is located outside of Room 2 and is updated weekly. Electronic copies are also updated weekly on our class website and our Connect page.
Class Rules and NKPS Behaviour Expectations
In Week 1, the children were put into small groups. They were given post-it-notes and told to write down all the good things they wanted to see happen in Room 2 and also all the bad things they did not want to see.
We then had a class discussion about N.K.P.S Behaviour Expectations. We discussed what we thought Be Responsible, Be Respectful, Be Caring and Be Your Best meant.
As a class, we grouped all of the post-it-note 'rules' into the N.K.P.S Behaviour Expectations. We saw there were lots of cross over themes which helped to further illustrate how we do not need an extensive list of rules in our class. If we follow the four N.K.P.S Behaviour Expectations it will create a positive, safe, successful learning environment.
The children then split back into their own groups to design and publish their own posters for the N.K.P.S Behaviour Expectations. Check out their amazing work in the gallery below!

PATHS Kid Of The Day : Term 1 Compliments
As you would know by now, N.K.P.S runs a PATHS program across the school. Each day we have a different student that is selected to be Room 2's PATHS Kid of the Day. At the end of each day the PATHS Kid of the Day gets to sit up the front and chooses children from the class to give them compliments. The compliments that were given to your child are in the gallery below.
