Yesterday's presentation day acknowledged some wonderful achievements and success, both for individual students as well as the school. Many students however, who have enjoyed a wonderful year did not get recognised yesterday and I would like to acknowledge them today. We have a great student body and a huge CONGRATULATIONS to all of them for their engagement in learning, their enthusiasm, their manners, their inclusiveness and their ability to be good people.
Yesterday also saw the announcement of our new House Captains and School Captains for 2018. Congratulations to these new leaders, we will look forward to seeing you grow and mature in your roles during the coming year.

School Learning Support Officers (SLSOs)
We are indeed very fortunate to have a dedicated, hard-working team of SLSOs in our school. These people are the front line in delivering much-needed support and assistance to some of our students who are most in need and to the classes they work in. Most of our team finished their year last Friday and I'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you for the care and wonderful commitment you bring to our classrooms.

The recent rainfall and humid days has created ideal conditions for the breeding of mosquitos and other biting insects. Could you please ensure your child has insect repellent applied before they come to school. Due to various allergies and sensitivities, we are unable to apply insect repellent prior to children going out to play.
Volunteers Morning Tea
On Tuesday 12 December we will acknowledge the wonderful contribution that our Volunteers make to our school and student learning. We will have a morning tea in the sta room commencing at 11:00am for all those helpers who have been a part of our school this year. Without this help and support we would not achieve the success that we have with our students. Volunteers are essential and strengthen our link between school and community.The ongoing support and help of volunteers is wonderful and we thank you for your assistance. Please make sure you have contacted the Front Office to let us know you are coming.
Intensive swimming program
Our intensive swimming program has commenced and it is wonderful to see almost all Year 2 students attending.
A reminder to all parents to please enter the school grounds via the main gate, please do not use the gate near the basketball courts.
