Grade 6 Graduation is coming up very quickly and the staff and students are very much looking forward to the evening. We are looking forward to all children attending and enjoying the night with their family and friends. We ask that the students dress appropriately for the evening and in neat attire that can be easily worn for another occasion after the event. It can be a hot night and the attire should take this into account with the ability to dance in whatever outfit is chosen. Thank you to Mr McInerney and the Year 6 team for organising the event. Parents’ Club generously provide the cake and some table decorations. This assistance is very much appreciated.
Grade 6 Orientation days are on Tuesday 6th December and Wednesday 7th December, 2016. On these days, your child will attend their chosen Government Secondary School. It is recommended that your child goes to school in the same way they plan to next year I.e. bus, bike, walk, etc. if possible, to assist them in starting their new routine.
You will have already received an information pack from your enrolled school which will have more specific information on how your child can prepare for the Orientation Days. Your child will need to wear their Primary School uniform for the two days. Any questions can be directed to your child's chosen Secondary School.
Our ‘Prep Transition Mornings’ are going very well and the children are learning about our school’s layout and being introduced to some of the things we do at school. We will have three beautiful sized classes next year to accommodate 50 students. The learning opportunities should be amazing with four of our experienced teachers Mrs Bruhn (Prep Unit Leader), Mrs Katie Florama (Co-Unit leader), Ms Shakeira Chislett and Mrs Dianne Brown teaching the 2017 classes.
The magazine is almost complete and ready to be sent off to the printer’s soon. Each year it becomes increasingly professional and a high quality memento to keep for the family. It again has been a real credit to the Magazine Committee for once again bringing together this record of 2016. It has been another huge year for the school both academically and socially. Not until you read through such a journal of the year do you see the opportunities offered the children throughout the year. The extra-curricular activities are enormous. If you would still like to purchase one please pay at the office. The cost is $12.00.
As with every school year there are a small number of families that relocate or come into the area over the Christmas holidays. Please notify the office if you intend leaving the school at the end of 2016 so that appropriate arrangements can be made for the forwarding of school records and tracking documents – particularly if the move is Interstate. We have an ‘Interstate Transfer Form’, which only takes a few minutes to fill out and sign and this can allow for very quick transfer of information at the beginning of the year.
