I hope you have all seen the wonderful advertisement that has been on WIN television during recent weeks. The ad is promoting our Golf Day fundraiser that will be held at Moruya Golf Club on 29 May. Many thanks for the companies and businesses that have entered teams - I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing time on the course.
Could parents PLEASE use the crossing in front of the school to move from one side of the street to the other. This morning there were a large number of parents and children who were crossing all along the street between the buses and parked cars. Not only is this dangerous, it is setting a bad example for our students who are required to cross between the flags at the identified crossing.
I have been advised that the Transport Inspector will be patrolling the area, both morning and afternoon during the next few weeks. Please use the crossing at all times. We do not wish to see any of our families fined. I realise that many people are in a hurry but please not at the expense of safety for our children.
Canteen and Basketball Court
The school is a busy place at the moment with our basketball court due to be completed in the next few weeks as well as the new makeover in the school canteen. Please remember that the canteen will not be in use on Friday 22 May and Monday 25 May as part of this refurbishment.
I apologise for any inconvenience, but hopefully the end result will be worth the effort.
We are aware that a large number of parents have still not downloaded our school app. This app is free and sends out push alerts when we send out new notes and our newsletter to students.
It is easy to install and the feedback that we have had has been extremely positive.
Excursion notes, sports notes, reminders for school events etc will all be sent out this way in the future. If you have not already done so could you please download as you may miss out on important information in the future.
Get Active, Get Healthy - We want healthy, happy children at Broulee PS!
Last Friday saw the launch of our new sports/movement program. We are aiming to get everyone being actively involved in moving throughout each day and we will be recording the minutes that each child spends on actually doing this. To start our program we held a "Mufti Day" last Friday where each child came along dressed in their favourite sports colours. To give an idea of some of the activities on offer each lunch time check out our board.
Kindergarten had a double reason to celebrate as they were also involved in making healthy sandwiches as part of the school's "Healthy Eating Program".
These small people had a ball joining Jamie Oliver and children in different parts of the world in making 'Squash It Sandwiches' for Food Revolution Day on 15 May. We chopped, ripped, wrapped, bashed, spread, munched, crunched and moved as part of a worldwide movement to educate students and families on the benefits of eating well. You can find out more about Food Revolution Day here. Check out our video on the Kindergarten blog of the whole process last Friday. A big thank you goes out to Mrs Dunn for making it all happen... and to our Kindergarten children who not only became chefs for the day, but risk-takers in trying something new!
