• All grades – guess the lollies in the jar competition. 50 cents a guess or 3 guesses for $1.

Remember to bring your money this Friday. Thank you.

We Need Your Vote!

Last term, grade 5/6 students entered a design competition for Latitude – Bounce, Climb, Fly – for their new bungee wall. We are proud to announce that Luke P’s design has been shortlisted and now needs your vote to win the competition. If Luke’s design wins, the whole school will get a free excursion to Latitude!

We ask that everyone in our school heads to:

and selects Luke’s design (you will need to enter a valid email address for the vote to count).

Let’s all get behind Luke and Beacy’s chances of winning!

Scienceworks Excursion

Don’t forget that the Grade Ones have their Scienceworks excursion tomorrow and the Grade Twos are on Wednesday.

Students are to bring their snack, lunch and a drink bottle in a named plastic bag. Students must wear their school uniform together with comfortable walking shoes. Spending money is no required at this excursion.

Please remember that the bus will be leaving school at 9:00am on both days.

Regards,

The Grade 1/2 Team 🙂

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
