As you all know Mrs P is currently acting Principal. I am enjoying my new role but particularly enjoyed seeing how much Prep has learnt on Friday when I had a full day on class. With all the busy activities in the last week and more to come over the next two weeks, we definitely are busy little vegemites. All our class time is focusing on our final term assessments and revision of key concepts over the next two weeks. It is very important that children attend school every day which has been tricky with all the flu symptoms passing around of late. Please remember to call the office and let us know if your child will be away so their absence is not unexplained. Our favourite event last week was the Wombat Stew excursion on Wednesday. Mrs Pirie and the children said it was fabulous! On Thursday students were very engaged with the CSIRO lab on legs science activities which was full of fun and interesting experiments. Photos coming soon! Mrs P
Check out our new school garden area. All cleaned up, the old greenhouse removed, new garden frames, soil in and ready for plants and mulch. We will be having a school garden day on Thursday 18th September. We are asking mums and dads to get involved on this day and help. Each class will have a designated garden to mend in the school. With some weeding, mulch and a good water help us replenish our school gardens. On this day students and families helping are asked to wear sunsafe gardening clothes, garden gloves, a broad brimmed hat and suncream. Parents helping who have a wheelbarrow and shovel at home we ask that you bring this along too! There will be a sausage sizzle available for lunch this day and an afternoon of games and activities from 1:30-3pm. Hope to see you there!
