Splash of Purple Day!

Monday 26th February

On this day students are encouraged to wear a splash of purple to raise money for a local team participating in the Cancer Council’s Relay For Life. A $1 donation would be most appreciated to support this cause.

Homework Blog Question

Think of 3 times this week where you experienced strong emotions (these can be positive or negative). How did these emotions impact on your:
• Behaviour
• Relationships (with friends and family)
• Health and well-being

Next Friday we will share and discuss our experiences.

Walk to School

Walk to school is officially commencing this week, Friday the 16th of February. Meet at the football oval at O’Neil road at 8:20, for an 8:30 departure. Remember, you earn a raffle ticket that could win you a prize just for walking to school and being active. Hope to see you there!

Assembly Today

Today’s assembly will be a special one with our School and Sports captains to be presented with their badges. If you are a parent of one of these children please feel free to come and take photos. House Captains and Vice Captains will also be announced at assembly this afternoon.

Information Night

Just a reminder that we have our whole school information Night next Monday, the 12th February. There will be 2 sessions running – the first at 5.30pm and the second at 7.00pm, both in 6J and 6B’s classroom (level 2, rooms 13 and 14). We also have Berwick College and Officer Secondary College presenting at 6.15pm and 6.45pm for any interested parents in 6C’s classroom and the Indonesian room.

To encourage parents to attend our Information Night, if a parent attends and signs in for either session, their child in grade 5 or 6 will have no homework to complete next week. I’m sure your child would love that!

Friday Morning Sport

Just a heads ups for parents that most students will receive a note for our Friday Morning Sport program on Monday. It will be due back in this coming Thursday (8/2) as our first game is Friday the 9th of Feb. Students who do not pay or bring in their permission form will be unable to attend. We apologise for the extremely quick turn around on this note, but changes to the fixture and therefore bus bookings have made this unavoidable. Thanks for your understanding.
