Primary 21/10/22: What a fantastic Book Week and Grandparents Day!

2022 has looked so different from the year before. We have enjoyed many opportunities for our families to join in with their children and participate in fun events. And last week was no exception.

Grandparent’s Day was such a success. The feedback we receive reassures the value of inviting all our school community to enjoy each other company. Thank you to the families that took part, and we are looking forward to this event again next year.

God Bless,

Mrs Gillian Coote

Sweet Dreams at Book Week

Last week saw the celebration of Book Week in the Primary school. The theme, Dreaming with Eyes Open, was all about developing imagination and bringing joy to young minds through reading. Students and staff had a wonderful time during the Read Around the Classrooms event, where a mystery teacher visited classes each day to read stories and do activities. The students were delighted to have visits from pirates, animals, fairies and Dr Seuss characters.

The week ended with the Prep-6 book character parade on Grandparent’s Day last Friday. It was wonderful to have parents and grandparents back onsite to enjoy the day. The students and teachers looked amazing in their costumes. Even our support dog, Dobby, got involved! It was fantastic to share in the classroom activities, Scholastic Book Fair, photo booth and picnic lunch with our visitors. Thank you to all those in our school community who came along to make this a special event.

Kind regards,

Mrs Kathryn Leech

Dobby's visit to Prep

This week the Prep children enjoyed a special visit from Dobby and Mrs McCleary. They were very impressed with Dobby’s book week costume. His rocket costume will help him blast off into space! The children were thrilled to discover Dobby was 4 years old! This started a conversation about ages and who was older than Dobby. Mathematics occurs in so many different ways throughout the Prep day.

Label Uniforms

We have several unlabelled uniforms here at school. Please make sure all your child’s clothes are clearly labelled, so that they can easily be returned. 

Students Late to School

If you receive a notification that your child has arrived late to school, you must provide a reason behind this. Please be aware that “late” does not explain why, so more information would be required.

If you intend on doing so and your child will be absent from school for three days or more, you will be required to complete an Application for Extended Leave.
