Student Goals on Compass!

‘Students Goals’ will be going live on Compass from Friday. Log on next week to see your child’s Goals for this semester! As you know, students at MWPS set goals regularly. They learn to do this because setting goals is a very important part of life and also part of the Victorian curriculum. 

So log on, have a look at your child’s goals and talk about them. There is more information on Compass about the goal setting process.

It is really important to engage with your child and their learning at school. So please log in at or via the mobile apps available in the Android and iTunes stores – search for Compass School Manager.

At Mildura West Primary School, the School Council plays an important role in supporting the principal to provide the best possible educational outcomes for students.

Participating as a school council member is a rewarding and challenging experience. It’s a great way to get involved and have a real say in what your school is doing for its students. 

We are inviting parents and carers to join sub-committees and help out in the following areas:

**Finance  **Facilities **Fundraising **Canteen **Out of School Hours Care (OSHC)

Our next meeting is Tuesday 17th May at 7.00pm. All welcome. 

Cross Country

Last Thursday we held our School Cross Country at Mansell Reserve. It was wonderful to see so many enthusiastic students, parents and members of our school community down there to contribute to the atmosphere!

Well done also to our students listed below who were awarded ribbons for their achievements and to those who have earnt their place to compete a the Sunraysia Divison event to take place next Tuesday.  A hught thank you to staff, parents/carers and House Captains who contributed to the smooth running on the day. It is always appreciated. 

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.

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.
