“When educating the minds of our youth,
we must not forget to educate their hearts.”
Welcome back to all students, parents and staff, to what promises to be a very busy term (as usual) with a variety of events and activities happening as we move towards the end of year tasks. For this reason it is very important that you read the newsletters and all push notifications and ensure that all notes given out at school are read and returned where relevant.
The disco held in the last week of Term 3 was another success. Thank you so much to the staff who were involved in the planning, the setting up and who then also stayed to supervise and ensure a safe and happy night was had by everyone. A big thank you also to all the parent helpers who prepared and served the food for the students. Events such as these could not take place without the generous help from our volunteers. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
The ICAS Mathematics Awards were received at the end of Term 3 with some great results. Credit Awards were achieved by Oliver Dyason, James Greenway,
Charlie Hough, Katie McDonald and Sunni West.
Well done to all students who participated.
Our next exciting event will be the Walkathon. This is to be held this
Friday, 13 October. Students in Years 3-6 will commence the walk at 11am and students in K-2 will leave the school at 11:15am. It is a mufti day but please ensure your child has suitable clothing that will prevent sunburn while at the same time be sure he/she has something for warmth. At this time of year the weather varies considerably. Comfortable joggers for walking are essential. Lunch will be eaten before we leave school (Years 3-6 will NOT be able to order a lunch order from the school canteen due to timing). K-2 will be able to order lunch orders as usual. All students will need to have some recess food (clearly labelled in a bag or lunch box) to eat at the surf club. The canteen will reopen when we return to school for students to purchase another light snack (they will be hungrier than usual).
On Sunday 5 November, our school staff will be involved in a Development Day to be held at school. The focus of this day will be the formation of our Collaborative School Plan. This is a mandatory 3 year cycle and of great importance to the effective progress of our school. If any parents would like to join us in this planning day they will be welcome.
