MWPS Concert

As you know, our students are rehearsing for our concert. It’s been great to see such joy on the children’s faces as they dance around the gym. The concert will be recorded on Tuesday, November 10. We will supply the viewing details next week.

This year Victoria will celebrate World Teachers' Day on Friday 30 October 2020.

The theme this year is:  'Teachers: leading in crisis, reimagining the future'.

This theme reflects the commitment teachers have made as leaders particularly teaching throughout the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, in a range of environments.

World Teachers' Day is a chance to recognise and celebrate the incredible contributions teachers have made in Victorian communities, as they help to teach the future.

Teachers (with support from parents and carers) have ensured education continues across the country this year, despite major challenges. It’s reinforced the significant role teacher’s play in the lives of children and students, their families and communities.

Mildura West P.S. has a fantastic team of teachers. I would like to say a very BIG THANK YOU to our teachers for their commitment and passion.

It’s a little “park” in the middle of our school

Have you popped your head in the back gate to see our new beautiful lawn and trees? It’s DIVINE! There’s lots of green lawn to roll around on and many beautiful trees to sit under. We are waiting for the lawn to get settled and then all of the fences will come down and our children will be able to use this wonderful new space.

Seesaw – Please activate

Please ensure your See Saw is activated. During the pandemic, communication is more important than ever. Parents/Carers are not permitted on the school grounds, so it’s vital we communicate through See Saw, Compass, email, phone and text.

Dance Rehearsals

Everyone is dancing the day away & loving it. Our concert will be pre-recorded for all to see. We will let you know the details ASAP. Although the pandemic has prevented so many school activities it’s super that we can still provide some music and joy in such a performance

All students must wear a hat in term 4.
The hat needs to be part of our school uniform, navy and preferably have a broad rim.

STUDENT SAFETY – PICK UP & DROP OFF

STUDENT SAFETY – PICK UP & DROP OFF
Back of school.
Parking at Pick up time- 3:15pm – Back of the School.
As you are aware there are some major building works happening in the middle of the school, we can’t wait to see our new landscaped area. Consequently traffic flow of pedestrian children out of school and cars is now more congested.
To help keep the back exit of the school safe, please:
 Obey traffic parking restrictions in Cypress Ave (There is a No Standing zone 3-4pm) Council have patrolled and fined people in the past.
 Park in the Car Park and wait along Cypress Ave for your child.
 Park in 10th Street and collect your child from Cypress Ave. (A patrolled children’s crossing is available on 10th St)
 Park on Ontario Ave and organise for your child to exit from the Oval gate on Ontario Ave.
As a part of our Healthy Schools initiative, we are also planning to have a Drop and Stride zone at Mansell Reserve (This has been delayed due to COVID). We encourage families to think of this as a great alternative to get some exercise and transport safely to school.
Front of school
Please ensure you park in the designated parks. DO NOT park in the school driveway.
Please respect other drivers and be very, very careful of our children.
