Dear Parents of 2015 Prep Children,
Throughout the school year we have a series of orientation activities aimed at assisting your child/children to have a smooth transition from preschool into school and also give you an opportunity to find out how you can assist in this process.
Tuesday 6th May 9:30am-11:00am
Tuesday 13th August 9:30am-11:00am
The purpose of these sessions is to provide families with an insight into how our Prep classrooms operate and to meet our current Prep teaching team to discuss any elements of our program and to ask questions.
Thank you to everyone in all their capacities who have assisted the staff and children in our school from reading helpers, travel assistants, to those that have assisted on School Council, Parents’ Club and the Canteen. Without early help in the year we would not be able to give the same level of support to the children with their curricular and extracurricular activities.
Congratulations to the following people who have been elected onto the executive positions on School Council and Parents’ Club for the 2014 school year. Your willingness to serve the school is appreciated by all the families and students. I wish you a great year and thank you for your service in advance.

As Head Lice is an ongoing problem in all schools across Australia, we undertake regular checks at school. All the personnel at school who check the children have been trained by the Nurse at Mildura Rural City Council, when that service ceased to schools. Despite everyone’s best efforts Head Lice continues to be a problem for all schools. We ask that all parents over the holidays do a special check of their children’s hair in order to give plenty of time to treat if necessary and for everyone to start the term clear. We have found in the past that many of the more natural products do not have the same effect as some specialised treatments that have been around for some time. The internet offers some additional information and tips.
Thank you to the small team of Parents’ Club members who sorted and distributed the Hot Cross Buns on Tuesday. We hope everyone enjoys the fresh buns.
All the best to all the staff, students and parents for a happy school holiday and Easter break. We hope everyone comes back refreshed ready for a big Term 2.
Despite some questionable weather conditions, the Swimming Sports were enjoyed by all the children and staff. The participation rate was high and the number of parents who joined the students on the day was great to see. Thank you also to the parents that assisted the teachers on the day, it is very much appreciated. Congratulations to Bass!!
