Many thanks to our children and staff who represented our school in the ANZAC Day March during the holidays. A special mention needs to be made of our School Captains who looked the part as they led our school in the March. We had a large group and their behaviour and standard of dress was excellent. We received some wonderful feedback from proud community members.
The school also held our own small service last Tuesday when the students returned. This service was led by students from 5/6T.
Next week all students in Years 3 and 5 will sit the national NAPLAN test. The tests will be completed over three days - Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with Friday being the day when children who may have missed a test can catch up. Only part of each day will be devoted to NAPLAN with the majority of the day being filled will normal school routine. Parents and students should not be worried about these tests - they are an indication only of the knowledge, skills and capabilities that our children have. If you have any questions about NAPLAN please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Printable planners for homework and study
School A to Z has printable monthly planners which include school holidays and the numbered weeks of each Term (for example Monday 19 May is the start of Week 4, in Term 2). Print one for each child to stick on the fridge or on their noticeboards. It’s a great way to teach them how scheduling their time means they’ll fit in the fun activities as well as their other commitments and responsibilities.
