A message from Troy  

Welcome back to Term 3

What a fantastic start to the term it has been. Students have been settling back into routines and demonstrating fantastic learning. We have already had many events with our first assembly and our whole school respect photo. The year 5/6 students were involved in Reader's Cup on Tuesday this week and did a tremendous job. Students also got to wear their PJ's to school today organised by the SRC. We have an action packed term ahead and look forward to sharing this with you. 


Respect photo

Thank you to Kate George for assisting us take a whole school photo of our Learn, Stand, Give, Fly theme last term 'respect'. Kate used her drone to take images of the whole school from above. Students did a wonderful job led by our year 5/6 students organising everyone into the seven letters. I hope you enjoy the images as much as we do! 


Parent survey

Hopefully people received a link this week with the parent survey. This provides us with valuable information on what we're doing well, where we can improve and what's important to you. Please see the information below with information about the survey. 


You’re invited to complete the 2022 annual parent survey, which is now open.

In the week beginning Monday 1 August you will receive an email or SMS from the Parent Survey Team with a unique link to participate in the survey.

If you did not receive an email or SMS with your unique survey link, contact education.ParentSurvey@sa.gov.au and include our school’s name in your email.

The survey takes less than 10 minutes and will help us understand:

  • what we’re doing well
  • where we can improve
  • what’s important to you.

It has been coordinated centrally so that added administration workload isn't placed on the school.

Your answers will not identify you or your child. Only collated feedback will be provided to our school.

Information collected will inform school improvement planning and activities at the school.

The survey closes 5pm Sunday 28 August.

Readers Cup

Well done to the Year 5/6 students involved in Reader's Cup on Tuesday. They all did a wonderful job and were engaged and motivated to do their very best. A big congratulations to Sallie for all her hard work getting this event organised for six schools. 



This term our theme has been positive. This can be seen in many ways to being positive, to assisting others to have positive experiences. In our changing world we can often focus on the negative things around us. So this term we have a number of activities planned to keep students thinking positive. Our first activity involved students writing their name on a piece of paper. Each student passed their paper around and made a positive comment to their class members. At the end students were able to read all the positive comments people wrote about them. 


At home why not start practising being positive. A simple way to do this is asking what were three positive things today? By simply asking this question it changes the way we think, and over time becomes a habit of looking for the good around us. 


PJ Day

Well done to everyone who dressed up. It was great to see so many students looking cosy and warm.
