Eye and Ear Testing for Prep, Yr 3, Yr 6 & Koorie students

The Lions Eye Health Program is offering Free Vision Screening for students in Year Prep, 3, 6 and our Koorie students. Screening will be conducted by on 23rd and 24th November.  Over 80% of what children learn is processed through their eyes. Untreated eye conditions can affect a child’s development. It is estimated 1 in 5 children in Australia have undetected vision problems. Screenings can help identify children who may require further eye review/testing. This is an opt-in service. Eligible students will be given a form and/or there is a form included in this newsletter. If you would like your child to be tested, please return the form. If not, you do not need to do anything. If your child is in a different year level, but you are concerned about their hearing or sight, your child can be tested, with your permission, by returning the form.

Please return completed notes to the office by Wednesday 16th November.

Curriculum Contributions 2022

Thank you to all the families who have paid curriculum contributions so far this year. All money paid goes towards supplying your children with the items needed for their classrooms and specialist classes. Without families paying, we would not be able to offer the great programs that we currently run. If you are yet to make payment towards the curriculum contributions, it’s not too late. Payment can be made via Compass (it will show as Course Confirmation / School Payments) or at the school office.  

If you are yet to order a Jamo Journal, this can be done using the same link.
