Happy Holidays!

Just wishing all of our students and their families a safe and happy holiday break. Thank you to all the students for an extremely enjoyable year and thanks to all the parents for your ongoing support.

All the best to the grade 6’s, who are off on their high school adventure. You are an amazing group of people who have proved yourselves to be truly great humans. We wish you nothing but the best for the future.

Thank you everyone for a ‘glorious’ year.

Grade 6 and 5B&H Party and Kris Kringle Tomorrow

Just a reminder that students in grade 6 and grade 5B & H students will be having their Christmas party tomorrow. Students need to bring their chosen plate of food/drink to share. If bringing hot food, please drop this off at 11.40am to your child’s classroom.

Students who wish to take part in Kris Kringle, need to bring in a gift to the value of $5. Girls need to buy a present for a girl and boys buy a present for a boy. If your child does not bring a gift tomorrow, they will not receive one.

Grade 6 Graduation Excursion

Next Wednesday is the grade 6 graduation excursion to Funfields. Please see the below important information.

• Students need to arrive at school by 8.45am and go to their classroom to mark the roll. We will be leaving at 9.00am and will not be waiting for any late students
• Students must wear their bathers under their clothing. They are able to wear casual clothing (school uniform is not required) but clothing must be sunsmart (shoulders must be covered, strictly no singlets) and they must wear closed-toe shoes (runners). Thongs may be brought in their back pack to wear at Funfields between water rides, but runners will be required for other rides and going and returning from school.
• All students must wear a rashie or t-shirt when on the water rides. We are a sunsmart school, so both girls and boys must have a rashie or t-shirt on. Any student with no rashie or t-shirt to wear on water rides, will spend the day in the shelter area.
• Students must bring sunscreen and a hat/cap.
• Students should bring a small back pack with their snack, lunch and drink bottle in it. They will need to bring a towel and a spare t-shirt as they must be dry to ride on other non-water activities.
• No money is to be brought as no student will be permitted to buy anything at Funfields.
• No devices are to brought on the excursion as their will be nowhere safe to leave them.
• We will return to school at approx. 5.30pm. Please read the blog for updates of approx. time of arrival back to school on the day.
• Students have watched the safety video and been spoken to about rules and expectations. If any students behaviour is unacceptable, parents will be called to come and collect their child.

If you have any questions, please see Miss Backman.

Grade 6 Graduation Rehearsal

Just a reminder for all grade 6 students, that we have a rehearsal for graduation at the Baptist Church tomorrow. If you are one of the few students who still has not returned their permission form, you need to do so tomorrow or you won’t be able to come with us.
