I hope you all had a lovely Easter. Our staff have enjoyed welcoming your children back into our classrooms and we look forward to another exciting term.
New Families and Staff member
I would like to welcome Alice McMahon to the school, Alice is an education support worker who will be assisting various students across a range of classes. We also welcome Mason, Rylan, Spenca, Darcy and Ted to Macedon Primary this term, we hope your time at Macedon is filled with fun and learning.
We have the school house athletics scheduled for this Friday and will be keeping a close eye on the weather and will try and make a decision about going ahead or not as early as possible.
The house athletics is a great day out for our year 3-6 students and I encourage you to get down to Dixon Field on Friday to cheer on your child if you have the time.
The Macedon Village Farmers’ Market will be setting up on the school oval this Saturday 30 April between 8am and 1pm. Drop in, grab a coffee and support our local farmers and producers. Proceeds from the stall site fees go directly to the school to support school improvements and student programs.
Mothers Day Stall
With Mother’s day just around the corner, we are holding the Mother’s day stall at school next Thursday 5 May. All gifts will be $5, we ask that the children bring their $5 cash on the day or prior. If there are any parents that would like to help on the day, please let Emma in the office know.
Sex Education Australia (SEA) – 3-6 Program
We have the Year 3-6 health and human development program beginning in the school next Friday 6 May. We arrange for SEA to complete this program with our students with the classroom teachers in the room to support the students.
Sex Education Australia’s health and human development programs (in the domain of sexuality and relationships education) offer our students the opportunity to gain accurate and age-appropriate information that is delivered in a relaxed and non-judgemental way. SEA is not affiliated with any religious or political organisations, or lobby groups, and acknowledges, and is sensitive to, the wide-ranging values and beliefs that we know families have in our communities. We also know, though, that no matter a child’s background, all young people need access to accurate, fact-based information that will help them as they grow and develop.
There is a zoom parent information session on Monday 2 May from 7pm-8pm. Please register when you click on the link below:
