Due to the extreme heat expected tomorrow we have decided to hold our whole school final assembly for 2019 at 9am in the morning.  Any final certificates will be handed out along with the announcement of our new student leaders for 2020.

The Grade 6 water fight will now take place at 11am and will be finished by 11:30 at the latest.  This is for Grade 6 students only.  If your child is bringing Bunch of Balloons, they will need to bring a large tub (no washing baskets) or their balloons will not be filled. Parents are welcome to come watch the fight on the new playground.

We understand that many parents are wishing to take their children home early due to the heat.  Just a reminder to sign your children out at the Office.  Grade 6 teachers will have sign out sheets with them after the water fight to take your child home early. If grade 6 students are staying st school to 1.30pm, they will need to bring a change of clothes and a towel.

Grade 6 Girls finish there Primary School Sport career at the State level.

Yesterday our Grade 6 girls cricket team competed at the State finals at Junction Oval in blazing hot conditions. The girls were amongst some of the best primary school cricketers in the state and were by no means embarrassed! After playing three games, the girls finished with a draw and 2 loses.

The talent and attitude that these girls have shown throughout their entire primary school representing Beaconsfield in a range of sports has to be admired. These are a special bunch of athletes who will be missed next year.

Nothing but colourful grins at the Splash and Dash

Thank you to everyone one who attended and participated on Friday in the Splash and Dash. It was a fantastic day full of lots of fun activities. The students rotated between four activities throughout the day. The rotations consisted of mindfulness, dancing, skills challenges and the Splash and Dash on the oval where the kids got soaked in colourful water (thanks to the parents and teachers!)

The day concluded with some relay games and activities in the shed, where it was then announced that the winner of the House Cup was ……………MORGAN!!!!

A special thanks to Mrs Carey and the House Captains and Vice Captains for organising and running the day. And a special thanks to those parents who came along and joined in the all the fun.
