Lightning Prem Parent Helpers for Friday!!!

The Grade 5/6s have their Lightning Prem Day this Friday. Unfortunately we have no volunteers to help the teams. The four sports are basketball, tennis, volleyball and softball. Anyone interested in coaching, scoring or just helping out for the day please contact the school today!!
Also please ensure you have a valid Working with Children’s Check that is registered to Beaconsfield Primary School.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Fun Run

We had a great day on Friday at our Fun Run. Thank you to everyone for the support.

You still have time to donate to our school and have the opportunity to be in the running for a BMX bike. Here is the link for the CUA School Fundraising page where parents can log in and create a profile for the child to raise money for the fun run. Once they have created their profile they need to share it to receive donations.

Any child who raises at least $1 online will go into the draw to win a Colony Premise BMX Bike which retails at $750. The raffle will be drawn at assembly.

Donations can be accepted until Tuesday 24th October.

Parent Forum at Berwick College

Berwick College is inviting families to a parent forum they are running at their school, targeting ordinary families who are navigating their way through parenting a teenager. It could be a great opportunity for parents of Grade 6 students who are just about to enter their teenage years. Please see below for information.

Parent Forum details are:
30th of October
Berwick College Performing Arts Centre

The guest speaker, Dr Christiane Klehoe, is the creator of a program for parents that focuses on the emotional connection between a parent and a child. There is also an opportunity to ask questions of a panel after her presentation.

Attached is the flyer for anyone interested and the registration link is below.

Grade 5/6 Future Stars Hoop Time

Today some of our Grade 5/6s competed the Regional Hoop Time competition at Dandenong Basketball Stadium. We had two teams representing Beaconsfield who played with excellent skill and sportsmanship.
The Beacy Bobcats just missed out on playing in the qualifying match, while the Beacy Bears won all their matches convincingly and have qualified to the state finals.





Cooking in Indonesian

Hi Parents and Guardians,
Next week in Indonesian we are going to be exploring different types of Indonesian food and cuisine. Children will be shown a number of different traditional Indonesian dishes. These will not be for tasting (as most of them are quite spicy) however, children will have an opportunity to look at and smell the different dishes.

As a class we will be cooking Javanese fried rice (vegetarian) to share and eat. I have included the recipe I will be using below to make them. For safety reasons I have asked each classroom teacher to forward on information about any children that they know of having any food allergies or intolerances.

If you have any questions or concerns please raise them with your child’s classroom teacher.
It should be a great and yummy lesson next week in Indonesian.
