Parents of students in Year 3 and Year 5 will receive their NAPLAN results later this week. The reports will be sent home in a sealed envelope with each child. Please advise us if you do not receive your child's report by the Friday afternoon.
What do you know about Maths??
Do we still teach Maths the way you were taught when you were at school? Can you help your child with his Maths homework? Do you know what is actually in today's Maths curriculum?
This topic is an interesting one so we have decided to run a parent evening workshop where you can ask questions, view the curriculum and watch the "new way" of doing things.
The focus of the night will be how to help your child with Maths and is open to all interested parents.
Topic: How You Can Support Your Child at Home with Maths.

This week the department celebrates School Administrative Support Staff (SASS) week. At a school level we recognise that the people in these roles are the backbone of many of our programs. In the administration and front office areas we have both Judy Hamilton and Julie Mealy, in our learning support teams we have Pauline Pay, Sharon Hanks, Tim McDonald, Michelle Minehan and Mel Tuan and last, but not least, we have Nigel Dallas who keeps our grounds in top condition. These are the fantastic dedicated and patient staff who make our educational world continue to tick in the right direction.
Yesterday we showed our appreciation with a mouth watering morning tea - well done and a huge thank you to every member of our SAS team.
Last week we celebrated RED day (Read Every Day). Please check out the various class blogs to see what was happening during these sessions.
Father's Day Breakfast
Calling all dads - don't forget our Father's Day Breakfast on Thursday morning from 7:30am. So far we have had a terrific response. Please remember that all orders must be placed by tomorrow (Wednesday 3 September) either online through the P&C section of our school website or paper order from the front office. We hope to see you on Thursday morning bright and early!!
Happy Father's Day to all of the men in our children's lives. We hope you enjoy the many offerings that come your way, both big and small - they are given with love and the biggest smiles.
