Last Scoop for the term
It is hard to believe we are at the end of Term 3. It’s been a busy and exciting one with lots of sporting competitions and athletics, as well as the more formal learning taking place. As we move towards the holiday period, I would like to wish you a relaxing, safe and enjoyable holiday. Hopefully the warmer weather will rid some of those nasty bugs that have been lingering around over the cooler months. Enjoy the sunshine!
Thanks to the P&C
Many thanks to the hard working efforts of our wonderful P&C. There have been some very productive fundraising efforts this year. Fabulous mornings were held with the Mothers’ and Fathers’ Day breakfasts, amazing prizes were donated and won with our raffle and lots of dance moves at our fun school discos.

Moruya High School Orientation Year 5 Students only

A reminder that the school summer uniform is to be worn in Term 4. For boys this includes a white polo shirt and green shorts and girls a summer dress or white polo shirt and culottes. Black tights/leggings are not included as part of the school uniform.
Please remember that all children need to wear their green hat while outside playing in the sun. If they forget their hat they are restricted to playing under the shady areas of the school playground and will not be allowed onto the main playground. The hats must have the broad brim which is why we encourage the school hat. Please ensure your child’s hat is clearly labelled with their name. We end up with MANY hats in the "lost property" box, most of which have no name and are in a brand new condition.
Dates for your diary
This morning we thanked our wonderful Community Tutors by hosting a delicious morning tea. The wealth of experience, knowledge and patience our Community Tutors give on a weekly basis is invaluable. Today also provided an opportunity to demonstrate the Synthetic Phonics program and clarify any queries.
