Jeans for Genes Day

This Thursday, the 31st of July, your child is allowed to wear jeans to school to support ‘Jeans for Genes Day’.  Jeans for Genes Day is a national day when people wear their jeans to raise much-needed funds for research into birth defects and diseases such as cancer, epilepsy, and a range of genetic disorders.

At Beaconsfield Primary School we have changed the day because of grade 3 to 6 House Athletics Day. Could you please bring along silver coins to raise money to help scientists at Children’s Medical Research Institute to discover treatments and cures.  Each grade will take their collection of silver coins to make a coin line.  We will use our math skills to measure each grade’s line, calculate how much money each grade has raised and to count how many coins each grade has.  There are some rewards for grades with the most.

Please note that students are still required to wear school uniform but replace their pants for jeans.  Thank you for supporting this cause and our school.

‘Drop and Go Zone’ Launch

Just a reminder that tomorrow is the launch of the O’neil Road ‘Drop and Go Zone’. Please make an effort to meet us at the football oval at 8:15am for the group photo and to walk to school. Parents are more than welcome to join us!
