Grade 4 Olympic Celebration

Many of our students have become so well informed about the Rio Olympics. If you happen to be watching the Olympics with your child please have a chat and you will be amazed! 

School Attendance

Going to school every day is the single most important part of your child’s education. Students learn new things at school every day – and missing school puts them behind. 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. If students miss school regularly, they miss out on learning the fundamental skills that will set them up for success in the later years of school. There is no safe number of days for missing school – each day a student misses puts them behind, and this can affect their educational outcomes. Each missed day is associated with progressively lower achievement in numeracy, writing and reading. From this week, our Wellbeing Officer will be contacting parents/carers on a weekly basis to follow up on absences. Please understand that this action is for your child’s benefit.

Friendship Zone Fun

Friends have been dancing, playing instruments, solving Olympic Word finds, making Friendship Bracelets and the RREPs have been great leaders. Don't forget to pick up your Mindful Colouring sheet from the Friendship Zone. The entries are due in the next few weeks. Prizes to be won!!!
