We are firmly full steam ahead for this term with a lot of things continuing around the school. I hope you are all ready for everything that is going to happen for the rest of this term.
Visitors Coming Onsite
This is just a reminder that everyone who comes onsite to Goulburn Public School must sign in at the office so that we know you are here. This is following Departmental policies, guidelines and procedures and is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of every visitor here at school. Staff need to be informed you are here before you go into your child’s classroom as teachers are busy planning, preparing or teaching your child.
If you have any inquiries please visit the office. Thank you for your understanding.

Year 5 and 6 Camp
On Monday morning our Year 5 and 6 students left for their annual camp. This year it was at Berry - Sport and Recreation. Our very excited students boarded the bus and made their way down the coast for an exciting time. They participated in, archery, kayaking, and even went through the dark maze, which was something the students had to figure out in complete darkness. A few of them challenged themselves and went beyond some of their fears. Well done to all those that went
and pushed themselves to do things they thought wasn’t possible. A huge thanks to Mrs McDade and Mr Waterman for giving up their time to allow our students to experience camp and have a rewarding experience!
Last week we held our annual book fair. It was a huge success with lots of our students lining up to get a good look at all the latest releases. The library was very full each day with the children enjoying the books that were on offer. I saw lots of smiles and laughter as they perused the books and chose their favourites. A huge thanks to Mrs Lang who organised all of the books and trinkets and raised a lot of money to support our library and the school’s initiatives.
The school continues to send out the current guidelines of Covid-19 and the appropriate measures that we need to take. Please read those carefully as they change quite quickly.
Lastly, I continue to see our students working well, enjoying their time at school and developing a love of learning. It is fantastic to witness the look in their eyes when they grasp concepts and see that ‘light-bulb’ moment. I have been very impressed with all the student’s efforts in class.
If you have any questions, please feel free to see me. My door is always open.
