Latest News & Reminders
Fish and Chip Night - Wednesday, March 11
All of our staff encourage the entire school community to come along to school from 5pm to around 6pm to pull out a blanket and enjoy some fish and chips with their friends (it does not have to be fish and chips, just something communal to eat). There are no special activities planned apart from being together as a community. We have over 100 new Prep students to welcome and we would like to do it in style.
So, if you can get away from work a bit earlier, zip on down to the fish and chip shop, and dust off the old picnic blanket - we would all love to see you down at the school on the main oval on Wednesday, March 11th from 5pm for an hour or so.
Prep Information Night - Thursday, February 26th
Due to the unavailability of some staff last week, we had to reschedule our Prep Information Night from the 19th to the 26th of February. It kicks off at 7pm sharp so please make your way down to the hall in readiness on the night.
Parent-Teacher Interview Chats - Week of March 2 to 6
Notes have been sent home to all families regarding Parent Teacher Interview Chats occurring in the week of March 2 to March 6. You need to nominate your preferred times on the sheet that was sent to all students in Grades 1-6. Your teacher will then give you back a confirmation form so you can turn up at the right place at the right time. Please note that we want you to fill out the information sheet that accompanied the time nomination form. This sheet contains private and confidential information regarding your child and should be returned to your child's classroom teacher in a sealed envelope marked "Private and Confidential" with your child's teacher's name and grade written clearly on it. We use this information to fill in the picture of your child so we can best cater for his/her needs this year. It is not a teacher report to parent opportunity. It is a getting-to-know-your-child opportunity for the teacher. We look forward to 100% of parents being at their child's meeting.
Kangaroobie Camp for Seniors - March 18 to 20
Camp Kangaroobie has been magnificently supported by our parents, with the vast majority of students being able to attend.
