Welcome Ms Newbold

I am very happy to announce that we have employed Ms Beth Newbold to take over Grade 3T for the remainder of 2016.

Ms Newbold will begin on Monday 16th May. She is very excited to be teaching at West and cannot wait to meet the student, staff and parents/carers.

Mr Tom Lynch will be working alongside Ms Newbold next week, to assist in a smooth transition.

I would like to say a very big Thank You to Mr Lynch for teaching the class when Ms Thomas had to leave so unexpectedly at the end of last term. Mr Lynch is also moving to Melbourne to take up a teaching position. We wish him luck in his new position.

REMINDER : TOMORROW NIGHT - Wednesday 11th May from 6.15pm - 7.30 is our Open Night for grade 3 - 6 parents/carers/grandparents to come and visit our classrooms and take a look at the hard work our students have been doing. There will be a creche operating for siblings. Look forward to seeing you.

Kerbside Pride Schools Program

Our school has joined this program so that we can improve our waste practices. Sharna Ross from Loddon Mallee Waste and Resource Recovery group has been working with our Sustainability Ambassadors to develop a waste action plan. So far we have tried to improve the understanding of recycling with every class so that the recycling bins are not contaminated. There are many things in our lunch boxes that can be recycled: empty tetra packs – e.g. fruit boxes, various yoghurt and jelly hard plastic containers, Calippo packaging and ‘clean’ paper lunch bags. We hope to soon have weather proof bin stickers to clearly label our recycling and rubbish bins.
