Term 1 - week 10

What a great term. It passed so quickly, but we achieved so much. There are many highlights; the whole implementation of ‘Daily 5’ to support our Literacy across the school, swimming program, swimming sports, XC event, JSC making decisions on behalf of the students, excellent assemblies conducted by our school and house captains, the family groups, choir, kitchen garden and so much more.


At assembly this week we presented badges to the Specialist Captains. Performing Arts Captains are Romy Streat, Cooper Harwood, Visual Arts Captains are Gabi Kaye and Mitchell Vendy and LOTE Captains are Lily Fox and Ben English. Congratulations to all six children who have been identified within the student body as leaders within their perspective areas.

Our Easter Raffle was drawn at assembly. Twenty-five prizes were handed out. Over $1,000 was raised, which will be spent on much needed furniture across the school. Thank you very much too all the families who assisted with this raffle. A special thank you to Leah Schuter, Jess Newton and Deanne & Leanne who assisted with the prizes.

Unfortunately there are a lot of rumours going around our community at the moment, none of which are substantiated by police. I spoke to the children at assembly about stranger danger and I would ask you from a parental point of view to reinforce this discussion at home.

Our Grade 5/6 students have been writing about ANZAC Day. Their pieces of writing will be judged by the RSL and some presentations will be made at the ANZAC Assembly next term.

A reminder that we break for holidays tomorrow at 2.30 and that term two commences on Tuesday 22nd April after Easter Monday. ANZAC Day Holiday is Friday 25th April and our ANZAC Assembly will be held on Tuesday 29th April.

Congratulations to everyone on a tremendous term.

Have a safe and happy holiday.
