Working Bee – Saturday 13th September

The school will hold a Working Bee on Saturday 13th September. It will be begin at 9am and end at lunchtime. We will place a list of jobs to be completed in next week’s newsletter. Please circle this on your calendar, as it is a case of many hands make light work, and one day’s effort will make a great difference to the appearance of our grounds.

Head Lice

Head lice is continuing to cause concern and frustration for some families.   We ask that parents and carers to be vigilant and work with the school community to detect and treat head lice effectively. 

We have recently carried out a whole school check and if you received a note home, please complete the tear-off section and return to school as soon as treatment has commenced.

Every Day Counts

We all want our students to get a great education, and the building blocks for a great education begin with students coming to school each and every day.

There is no safe number of days for missing school – each day a student misses puts them behind, and can affect their educational outcomes.

Coming to school every day is vital, but if for any reason your child must miss school, please let us know.

Prep Enrollment 2015

We have commenced our Prep Information Sessions to allow us to do some long term planning for next year.  We would like an indication of possible enrolments for Preps who will start in 2015.

If you know of a family who are considering Mildura West Primary School next year, please encourage them to contact us.

Class Newsletters

Every term, the students work very hard, and to show case some of the things that they have been learning, a class newsletter is produced and sent home. These newsletter can be found in the newsletter link at the top of the page. Simply click on the link, and then the class that your child is in and browse through these wonderful and information packed newsletters. You can access all of them here.
