Indonesian Fun!

Last week the junior grades joined Miss Ireland in Indonesian to learn about Indonesian food. Students were taught about popular dishes in Indonesia with Miss Ireland bringing in some yummy curries, snacks and Nasi goreng for students to admire. Students then joined in on making and tasting traditional Javanese banana pancakes! YUM!

Walk to School

Due to the inconsistency of the weather and number of students walking, the teachers will not be walking to school for the rest of Term Two. We will continue when the weather gets better in Term Three, however we still encourage parents and students to use our 3 safety drop off zones to walk to school.

Thank you

National Walk to School Day

On the 19th of May, it is the 18th year for the National Walk Safely to School Day (WSTDS). We will be leaving from O’Neil road and heading to school approximately 8:30am. We would love to see as many students possible attending this walk.

The objectives of WSTSD are:
• To encourage parents and carers to walk to school with primary school age children and reinforce safe pedestrian behaviour.
• To promote the health benefits of walking and help create regular walking habits at an early age.
• To ensure that children up to 10 years old hold an adult’s hand when crossing the road.
• To help children develop the vital road-crossing skills they will need as they become mature pedestrians.
• To reduce the car dependency habits that are being created at an early age and which will be difficult to change as children become adults.
• To promote the use of Public Transport.
• To reduce the level of air pollution created by motor vehicles.
• To reduce the level of traffic congestion.

Thank you for your support.
