The weather was kind to us for our carols evening. We listened to songs from all year levels who were prepared by Miss Carnovale in their Performing Arts lessons. We were even lucky enough to receive a visit from Santa.
Thank you to all who attended making it a relaxed, joyful evening. We appreciate the group of parent helpers who organised or contributed in any way.
This afternoon 3W head off to Melbourne Zoo for their sleepover and first camp at Galilee. Tomorrow they will enjoy a day exploring the zoo before returning to school. We hope they get a good night sleep and come back with wonderful stories to tell us all. Year 3R will attend the camp next Thursday 13th December.

For most of the term, teachers have been brainstorming and planning class groups for 2018. It is a long thought out process involving consultation with the students (about their friends), evening out genders and needs. Any further requesting for change of class is now not possible with one potential change impacting upon the suitability of many others. Any class grouping requests should have been made by November 9 as stated in previous newsletter and bulletins.
