Thank you again to all the staff who attended the Year 5 camp at Lake Cullulleraine and the high level of student participation. The student’s behaviour was generally very good for the whole 5 days away. For staff, it is a whole week away from their own partners and often young families as well. Camp attendance is a real privilege! Thank you to Mr Baker for organising the Camp.
As required by DET, student’s 2nd Semester report will go home to parents and guardians next Friday. Congratulations to all the students who have worked so hard to achieve the best possible results both academically and socially. Congratulations to the teachers that have put so much time and dedication into the comments for each of the students. Mr Beer and I between us have enjoyed reading every report in the school.

School requisites will remain at $160 per year, per child. This is still very reasonable in comparison to many schools that set their fees in excess of $200 in and around Mildura. We are placing this in the newsletter to give families the opportunity to plan for next year, especially when more than one student attends the school. Sadly we still have a small number of families who have not paid for their 2016 requisite fees and we would appreciate it very much if they could finalise this before the end of the year. Thank you to all that have paid it makes an amazing difference to what we can provide to all children through the course of the year.
It was great to see such enthusiasm for the day and no doubt there were some tired children on Friday evening. Thank you to Mrs Brown who organised the day with assistance from all the members of the Prep – 2 Unit. The participation was fantastic and the behaviour all day of the children was amazing. The ‘Wave Pool’ and the ‘Cinema’ were certainly getting lots of comments. All the children have worked hard all year and it is so nice to have one shared event.
Thank you to all the members, who were able to make it to the annual Parents’ Club dinner on Monday evening. The members work tirelessly all year to provide for additional needs across the school. The hampers that have been put together as a result of the classroom donations looked amazing.
