I hope you all had a lovely break and an equally amazing holiday. My wish is that you all enjoyed yourselves and that you are ready for a new term. We have a lot going on this term, from school camps, presentation days to fundraisers and Year 6 graduations, so the school will be busy as we head towards the end of the year. Let’s all enjoy ourselves as all of these things approach.
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.
Our Year 3 and Year 5 check in assessments are underway at the moment. This is an opportunity to see how our students are doing and gives us more information in assisting our students to help pinpoint their needs. Thank you to Mr Waterman for organising all these assessments for our students.
Tell them From Me Surveys (TTFM)
The students in Years 4, 5 and 6 will be involved with these surveys. These provide the school with much needed information about how things are going in the school from our student’s perspective.
Our parent survey is ready for you all to access. We look forward to hearing your feedback and any suggestions you have are greatly welcomed. Please follow the link below to access the parent survey.

Our playground continues to be in the middle of an upgrade. The Hall is now being refurbished and will be out of action for some time. You may have seen the roof has already come off and the end part is being removed.
Year 5 and 6 Camp
On Monday 24 October - Wednesday 26 October our Year 5 and 6 students will be going to their camp at Berry. Notes will be coming home, so please ensure they are returned promptly.
COVID-smart settings for schools have been developed and updated in close consultation with NSW Health. Please read those carefully as they change quite quickly.
Lastly, I continue to see our students working well, enjoying their 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 of the student’s efforts in class.
If you have any questions, please feel free to see me. My door is always open.
