A huge thanks to Mrs Natalie Fairweather for organising our Walkathon last Friday. She also organised beautiful weather and scenery, fantastic singing and great children to walk with. Thanks to all our staff and parents who also joined our walk and have supported the school with raising funds for the school.
End of Year Reports
We revised the format of our student reports for the first semester in anticipation of the reports being available to parents via email rather then sent home with students in a paper format. This should help not only with the environment but also with the parents who need additional copies or who misplace the original report. It should also help parents who leave early for holidays. Although this was positively discussed at our last P&C meeting, I welcome your thoughts and feedback on this suggestion.
Congratulations to the following students who gained Distinctions and Credits in the recent ICAS English Competition:
DIstinction - Katie McDonald and Charlie Hough
Credit - Oliver Dyason and Johanna Green
Although every day should be "Grandparents Day" we will be celebrating this special time on Friday 27 October. Grandparents are invited to attend the K-2 Assembly in the Hall between 11:40am-12:15pm.
Grandparents are also invited to visit the open classrooms for Years 3-6 between 12:15pm - 1pm.
We look forward to showing our Grandparents the wonderful work our students have been working on over our very busy academic year.
Year 2 Intensive Swim program
There remains a few vacancies on the Intensive Swim Scheme which commences Monday 27 November. It aims to develop increased water confidence and provide students with skills in water safety and survival. If you are interested in your child participating in this program, please return the permission note and payment to the front office by Monday 13 November.
Stage 2 Excursions
Good luck to our Year 3 and Year 4 students heading off to camp this week. Both years will enjoy a range of fun activities providing great entertainment in a safe and comfortable environment.
Year 4 students will be spending two nights in Wollongong from Wednesday 18 October to Friday 20 October inclusive.
Year 3 students will be enjoying a one night stay to Kianinny Resort, Tathra from Thursday 19 October to Friday 20 October inclusive.
Kindergarten 2018 Information Night, Tuesday 24 October
We are looking forward to welcoming both old and new parents in the iCentre next Tuesday. The evening looks at general school information, as well as specific Kindergarten details for those just starting the school journey. Please see the brochure in this Scoop for further details.
Reminder about hats
As the weather warms up we move into our “No Hat, No Playing in the Sun” policy. While students can still play under the COLA and verandahs they will not be allowed to play on the oval, basketball court or handball courts if they are not wearing the school’s broad brimmed hat. The office holds a number of red hats that staff borrow for children to use when they are doing sport and PE activities but these are not to be borrowed during recess breaks.
New hats are available for purchase from the canteen but please ensure they are clearly labelled with your child’s name.
We all work better when
we work together.
Our differences do matter, but our
“When educating the minds of our youth,
we must not forget to educate their hearts.”
