Dear Parents, Carers and Community Members,
Welcome to Term 3. I hope that all of our families have had a wonderful break and are now ready for a challenging and engaging Term 3 at BPS. I would also like to warmly welcome those families that are new to our school this term.
As we return to a near normal term, our planned major activities already in our Term 3 calendar include:
· House cross-country carnival.
· NAIDOC Week.
· Interschool cross-country carnival.
· Book fair.
· P&C Fathers’ Day stall.
· K – Year 6 disco.
· House athletics carnival.
During the holidays we had some high pressure cleaning of concrete paths and our limestone walls. My sincere thanks go to Mr Roland Abel (Abbie & Liam Lyall’s grandfather) who donated his time and equipment in cleaning the limestone! My thanks also go to our cleaning and gardening staff who as usual, have ensured that we have returned to a very clean and professional looking school.
This term we are reverting to most of our regular operations and processes. This means that all parents and carers will be able to be back on school site during drop-off and pick-up times. However, we ask that you do not enter classrooms unless it has been pre-arranged. This is to allow us to ensure that we are able to meet the 2 square metre rule currently in place for schools. Children that need to leave school early can be signed out at our reception and then collected by their parent or carer.
