Theme: “AUSTRALIA: STORY COUNTRY”
When: Friday 12th August, 2016
On Friday 12th August we will be celebrating Book Week in our school. This year the theme is: Australia - Story Country. With significant notice for all children to prepare it should be an enjoyable and colourful parade. For the Year 6 students it is their last opportunity to dress up and have fun with the other children. We have a wonderful reading culture within our school and so many opportunities are opened up in life if students leave primary school as competent readers with developed stamina in reading. It is a real pleasure to walk around the school and see so many students engrossed in their books each morning.
START THINKING ABOUT YOUR COSTUME NOW!!
Please ensure that all enrolment forms for children starting school in 2017 are left at the front office as soon as possible. The earlier we can finalise numbers the earlier we can plan for the 2017 staffing needs. If you know any families outside of the school that intend to enrol children here in 2017 please ask them to collect an enrolment form within the next week. At this stage we will have two Foundation (Prep) classes planned for 2017. Should we get additional enrolments we are in an excellent position to meet these needs and create a third class.
Thank you to the Parents’ Club for organising and distributing all the pies for this major fundraiser last week. Over 1500 pies were sold. The two families that sold the most pies were: the Luke family and the Carra family. Both families will be the happy recipients of two family passes to Cinema Deakin to watch a movie of their choice.
Congratulations to Zac Stainer and Ollie Eaton on representing Sunraysia last Thursday at the State Schools Cross Country Championships. Both enjoyed the experience and were pleased with their personal best times. It is a very challenging competition with many of the competitors that our students run against being a part of Athletics clubs and many also have their own running and fitness coaches.
Student mobile phones must be left at the office or given to the classroom teacher during the day and collected after school. We ask that all families support us with this approach as it still allows use before and after school and does not impact on any other students during learning time.
