Principal's Update

Hi everyone, 


This term is flying past and it's hard to believe we are already at week 6! Our remaining weeks are likely to be very busy as we have a lot happening along with our normal teaching and learning. Please be mindful of the activities we have coming up this term:

  • Remembrance Day
  • Mission Melanoma talk 
  • Swimming Program 
  • Wind Surfing excursion for Year 6
  • Orientation Day
  • Year 6 Graduation
  • Christmas Concert
  • New classes/new teachers

Teachers are currently working hard on student assessments and reporting, with school reports being released at the end of the term through Compass. If you require a hard copy of the report please let the office know by Friday 2nd December.


Our 2023 class structure and teachers have not yet been finalised but planning is well underway. As always, I welcome requests from parents. You may have noticed that your child doesn't work very well with a particular student in their class, or there is someone they do work well with. If you have any special requests please put it in writing and have it to the office by Friday 18th November. Please note we can not guarantee that your request will be granted because sometimes it is impossible - however, we will try our best. 


There has been a wonderful change in the weather with everyone being able to enjoy some warm sunny days! Unfortunately, along with this, comes the risk of sunburn. I can not express the importance of sun safety enough! It is compulsory for all students to be wearing a broad brim school hat throughout this term, if your child does not have a hat they are available for sale at the office for $12. There is also sunscreen available in all of the classrooms for students to use. If your child is unable to use our sunscreen please provide their own to be used prior to going outside. 


I would like to congratulate our 5/6 cohort for the excellent work put into their Mappen projects in Term 3! Following on from this work the Year 5/6 students raised $75 for UNICEF. Along with the donation, teachers sent away Madison and Olivia's winning presentation and spoken word poem to UNICEF. The response was fantastic! The girls received a t-shirt, hat and tote bag, as well as a very heart-warming card from the executive. It is wonderful and inspiring for students to see a response to their work!



I look forward to all our students continuing through to the end of the year with their high quality work - I can't wait to see what they can achieve!
