Grade 5 Camp

Just letting all the parents know that the grade 5 campers are leaving Traralgon and are due back at approximately 4:30pm. Please let your child’s teacher know when you collect your child.

Camp Reminders

Hi guys,

Just a few reminders for camp next week:

– Arrive at school by 7:40am and take your luggage to the shed.
– If you have medication you need to be at school at 7:20am and meet in 6B’s (Grade 6 Camp) or 5H’s (Grade 5 Camp) classroom.
– Bring your asthma form in if applicable (Grade 5’s you will receive this on Tuesday afternoon).
– Bring your snack and lunch for the first day in a small backpack. You also will need a refillable drink bottle and your pencil case.
– You are able to bring one normal sized bag of lollies. Please make sure you are sensible with them or they will be confiscated.
– Devices such as iPods and iPads are not allowed to be brought to camp this year. You may bring a digital or disposable camera if you wish.
– Everyone must bring a hat (caps are fine).
– Bring sunscreen and insect repellent.
– Everyone will need a pillow and a sleeping bag (these are not supplied by the camp).
– Bring your bathers in case we end up going for a swim.
– Bring a torch along.
– All tops must have sleeves (no singlets)

I think they’re all the major things. Have a restful weekend and we look forward to a great time with you next week!

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.
