Primary News


To help reduce congestion in the Cafe on Friday lunch times, four of our wonderful Grade 5/6 student leaders will be selling Zooper Doopers and Calippos outside the Green Building.  It would be much appreciated if students could bring the correct money if using this facility.


Primary Book Week

Thanks to all those students and their families for supporting our Primary Book Day yesterday. It was wonderful to see so many costumes on display, and although we were unable to hold a P-6 parade, students were still able to display their costumes in year levels. They were even joined by a crazy dinosaur during the morning!!


I would like to thank all the primary staff for their enthusiasm and hard  work they put into the day. I know our students certainly had a fantastic day!


Special thanks to Mrs Gardiner for the wonderful job she did of organising activities throughout the week and motivating everyone involved. We really appreciate the efforts of all staff and families for their support during this challenging time. 


No Hat No Play

During Term 4, all primary students are required to wear a hat out in the yard at recess and lunch times.  The school policy is 'No Hat No Play'.  If you need to purchase a hat for your child you can do so at the school's main office.

Drink Bottles

Please make sure your child brings a drink bottle to school each day.  As per Covid-19 policy the drink fountains are now taps so students can only fill drink bottles not drink out of fountains.

Before School

Families please be aware that students who arrive at school before 8.40am can go to the Breakfast Club, held in the Canteen. Alternatively, they may sit on the seats at the back of the Green Building until 8.40am.  Students are not to play out the front of the Green Building until 8.40am when the front playground is supervised and the doors of the Green Building are opened.

Lost Property

We have a LOT of primary jumpers in our lost property.  If your child is missing a jumper please tell them to ask Mrs Collihole if it is in lost property.

There are also a LOT of containers and drink bottles too.
