As we come to the end of what has been another fantastic school year, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our community for the continued commitment and support offered to our students and staff throughout 2018. We have many parents who offer their support in so many different ways including; assistance in the classroom, on excursions, on the sporting field, with special groups, as class parents, in the canteen, fundraising, on P&C committees to list a few. However you have supported our school, in whatever capacity, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. On behalf of all the staff at Beacon Hill, we wish all our families a wonderful Christmas, New Year and holiday break. Treasure this magical time with your nearest and dearest, make the most of the glorious summer weather and find some time to relax and recharge! I look forward to seeing everyone on Wednesday 30 January 2019.
Thank you to our Year 6 for coordinating a fantastic mini fete day last week. Our students in years K-5 actively participated in full spirit throughout the day and our year 6 students should be commended on their wonderful preparation and execution of the day! Feedback from our students was that it was the best one ever! Congratulations on a highly successful day and thank you so much to our year 6 students and their teachers, Mrs O’Sullivan, Mrs Ross, Mr Matthewson and Mr Norman for all the hard work put in to organising the event. Many thanks also to year 6 for their thoughtful farewell gift to the school. We thank you for your contribution to our sustainability initiatives. We will forever be reminded of what a special group of kids you are! Thank you!
Thank you to our wonderful band committee- especially Kaz Cerneaz, Miss Widmer and Matt Hurditch who coordinated a delightful community carols and picnic last Thursday afternoon. It was a beautiful evening with sensational entertainment provided by our bands and choirs and led superbly by our gorgeous master of ceremonies Mrs O’Sullivan. Thank you to everyone who attended and supported such a lovely community event at such a busy, but magical time of year with special mention to the many volunteers who assisted throughout the evening. Thank you to our wonderful Santa for his special guest appearance as well.
We shared a beautiful picnic day at Clontarf (Years K-5) and Putt Putt and Movies (Year 6) yesterday which was such a lovely way to celebrate the end of a fabulous year! Thank you to Mrs O'Sullivan and Mr McGee for organising such fun picnics for us to enjoy!
