Congratulations to this week's' Artists of the Fortnight - Noah worked hard to create a 3Dimensional monster, Zach displayed excellent drawing skills to create a one point perspective drawing and Charlee created a colourful snail drawing using a swirl design. Outstanding work by outstanding children!
On Tuesday a group of Year 5 and 6 students attended the Mini Olympics. Their athleticism was to be commended and their sportsmanship was excellent. Thank you to Mr Pettit, Mr Beer and Mrs Carra who attended with the children on the day. We achieved some excellent results which included:

Ollie, Viktoria, Zack, Archer, Adam, Kayla and Zach all move on to the Regional finals in Bendigo. We wish them the best of luck.
Please refer any families that you know of who are intending to enrol here to hand in the forms as soon as possible. Please assist us with this matter if you have a younger sibling to attend as we are in the process of estimating staffing for next year and it is very difficult if numbers are not finalised.
As from 1st September Government Schools are to follow Sun Smart recommendations and require all students to wear hats during outdoor activities that involve exposure to the sun. To ensure a smooth transition back to hats please check that names are clearly visible as some tend to fade over time.
Children are advised that if they have sport on a particular day, to have their own tube of sunscreen to apply as required. From day 1 next term, hats are not only recommended, but compulsory. The Uniform Shop is open Tuesdays & Wednesdays 3:00pm-3:30pm where hats can be purchased for $12.
A reminder to parents/carers that the Uniform shop is open Tuesday & Wednesday from 3:00pm to 3:30pm. Layby is available if required.
Parents unable to come within Uniform Shop hours can collect an order form from the office. On completion return your order, with payment, to the office to be filled and sent home with your child.
All sizes have been restocked in Polo Shirts. Sizes now start from 4 through to 16.
We are continuing to have a few sick children. We can only ask parents to please keep children home 24 hours after vomiting has ceased. It is not fair to children or the staff and their small children for the rules regarding transmission to be disregarded. Good hygiene is critical to breaking the chain of transmission.
