Excursions, Book Fair, Parent conversations: Term 3 | Week 6

Weekly News
Stay Informed: Chat with us

During the early weeks of September, teachers are making times available for parents to have an informal chat about how their child's learning has progressed since the mid year report. It's an opportunity to check on how things are going or to let teachers know about anything that they might find helpful to be aware of.

Our quick and convenient online booking system opens today. It provides an email confirmation of your booking with each teacher. You'll also receive a text reminder on the day of each meeting. Be sure to provide a valid email address and mobile number. Book now

Rides and Fun Day: 20 September

The countdown is on for our Rides and Fun Day on Wednesday 20 September this term.

The rides are all booked for the afternoon which starts at 12PM and finishes at 4:00.

$25 pre-ordered wristbands give 4 hours of unlimited rides ($30 on the day). Pre-orders are available using the order forms sent home with students. Forms are also available at the Hub or download and print one here.

Showbags at various prices can also be ordered using this form. Our organisers have done a fantastic job at planning what is sure to be an exciting afternoon.

We are calling for volunteers who would be willing to help out for an hour on the day so that organisers can spend some time with their children as well. Can you lend a hand on the BBQ, cake stall or games stalls? Just an hour.

Thank you to those who have already volunteered their help, it is much appreciated.

Kindergarten Transition to School 2018
We are looking forward to meeting all of our future Kindergarten students and their families next term. All of the information about our Transition to School program can be found here on our website.
PSSA Gala Day Fun
Last Friday, our boys and girls PSSA representatives attended their first gala day. Despite the heavy winds, it was a fantastic day with students demonstrating excellent behaviour and sportsmanship. All students are to be congratulated. Thank you to all family members who provided private transport on the day, it was much appreciated.
We read and write lots of stories in Kindergarten. We wrote some terrific stories about the day Penguin Pete drove the fire engine. Here are a few of them.
K/1 have been working on activities to hear and record sounds in words. This is a differentiated activity that targets individual student's needs.
Year 5/6 have been great mentors for year 1/2 through the buddy reading program every Tuesday morning. Both students have the opportunity to read to each other.
2/3 performing Readers Theatre scripts outdoors.
4/5 have been working hard to develop our summarising and paraphrasing skills to explain information and ideas in our own words. This is a really important skill to help us when we write reports, like the ones we wrote about sharks.
Year 5/6 have been using current issues in the newspaper as a focus for our reading groups this week.
