End of term arrangements
With the end of Term 3 nearly upon us, please note that all students will be dismissed at 2:30pm this Friday 16th September. A short assembly will be held in the Bendigo Bank Hall just prior to dismissal, beginning at approximately 2:00pm where our ‘Students of the Term’ will be presented with their certificates.
We thank Mr Cappadonna who took charge of the Footy Day Celebrations. The detail for each team in 2016 was sensational. The launch of the Mars team will be an interesting development for 2017. Watch this space!
On behalf of all of the students who enjoyed a yummy Footy Day lunch, I would like to sincerely thank Sarah Boardman, Peta + Phillip Ross, Kelly Driver, Julie Woulfe, Amanda Reeve and a fantastic group of parent helpers who ensured that all of the hot pies were distributed in an efficient and timely manner!
Prep Excursion to Moonlit Sanctuary Monday 3rd October.
To celebrate and consolidate our learning throughout Term 3 on our place in Australia and Australian native animals, we have planned an excursion to the Moonlit Sanctuary.
We will experience close encounters with mammals, birds and reptiles through two education programs:
*Mammal Mingle: Meet a range of mammals including dingoes, Tasmanian devils, wombats and koalas. We will learn about the broader needs and features of these animals.
*Bush food explorers: We will touch and smell a range of plants and learn how aboriginals used them and other tools from nature.
Swimming for all Prep to 2 children will begin on the 14th November. The cost will be about $60 for seven lessons. A notice explaining the details will be sent home early in Term 4.
After a long cold winter, I’m sure everyone is looking forward to some warmer weather just around the corner! With the warmer weather will come the increased exposure to UV radiation during recesses and lunchtimes. As per our Sunsmart policy, students will be expected to begin wearing hats when outside from the start of term 4. Over the next week, could you please take a moment to check that your child has a suitable sunsmart hat labelled with their name (always a good tip to have a spare hat as well). Please note that broad-brimmed and legionnaire hats are the only hats deemed suitable; baseball caps are not compliant with our Sunsmart policy.
