Western Australian Student Number (WASN) requests for 2019

All current students in Western Australia should have been allocated a Western Australian Student Number (WASN), and be registered with the School Curriculum and Standards Authority. This number remains with the student throughout their school life. Schools need to recognise the importance of the WASN to avoid duplication of records and maintain continuity of student data. In 2019 schools will only be able to request WASNs through the Student Information Record System (SIRS) for Kindergarten students commencing in 2019.

Procedure for Water Flushing

The following notice was sent to all Government Schools, for the start of the school year and is sent to Independent Schools for their information and action as they deem appropriate.

At the commencement of the 2019 school year, all schools or facilities that have an active school population will be required to flush their drinking water taps. This will ensure that any stagnant water or possible contaminants that may have accumulated over extended periods of non-use are removed from the school’s drinking water pipes. The flushing process will be similar to the one that occurred at the beginning of this year. Please refer to Ikon for the specific requirements. Principals need to work closely with their cleaners and/or gardeners in order to guarantee that all the flushing requirements have been successfully met by the deadline.
For more information please see the attached documents Flushing of Drinking Water Pipes Information.
