It is hard to believe that it is already the end of a very busy term. Some of the things that have kept us busy besides our regular classroom programs include Upper Primary Leadership Day, SRC Grip Leadership Day, Messy Mud Days, R-7 Street Smart, R-5 Swimming, R-2 Skeleton Crew Performance, Parent –Teacher Discussions, and we still have KESAB Visit, Zoo Snooze and SRC Casual Day to finish off the term! It has been delightful to see our students grow and shine as confident learners in many areas throughout the term.
On behalf of our staff I would like to wish all members of our community a happy, safe and restful 2 weeks break. We look forward to working in partnership with you again next term.
Next term our Year 3, 5 and 7 students will be participating in NAPLAN assessments of Language Conventions, Writing, Reading and Numeracy. These will take place from Tuesday 14th May to Thursday 16th May with Friday 17th May being the catch up day for students who are absent for any tests. Any parents wishing to withdraw their child from the tests can do so by completing a form prior to NAPLAN in week 3. Please contact me for the forms.
Sports Day planning is also underway, our Sports Day Committee have been meeting and are working with students to ensure there are a range of events to keep our students actively involved.
Students have been assigned teams, so we suggest you to use the holiday break to find your team coloured tops (with collars) and bottoms. We have new reversible hats for purchase from the uniform shop and encourage you to purchase one if you haven’t already as a way to show your team spirit. Please remember that hats will need to be worn on Sports Day - we do not encourage coloured hair as will be under the hat.
