Week 9 Term 4

Hi everyone

Well, this is the last blog for the year. The time has just flown by!

What's on this week?

Junior School Christmas Crafts: Monday 10th & Wednesday 12th
The children will rotate in mixed age groups, completing two Christmas activities each. In Room 7 we will be making nativity scenes.

Monday 10th: Mufti Mania Day
The cultural leaders are raising funds for a school in Fiji that was devastated by the latest cyclone. Dress up as your favourite book character - bring the book too if you have it, and a coin as your donation.

Tuesday 11th: Graduation Mass beginning at 5pm
All children are expected to attend in school uniform. This is the moment when we farewell our Year 8 students as they begin their high school years. An item for the Community Foodbank would be really appreciated.

Thursday 13th: Prizegiving in the church at 1pm.

Student Council have boxes of batteries for sale, individual packets $5 - could be useful for those Christmas presents. See Chrissy in the office - the more we sell, the closer we are to having that swing.

Last Day of School

School finishes at 1pm Monday 17 December.  Many teachers are shifting classes and resources for next year, and this Friday 14th is the big shifting day. Please bring an extra bag to school on Thursday 13th, as exercise books and art work will be coming home.

Thank you all so much for your support this year. Have a happy and safe Christmas and enjoy the holidays.

Hi Everyone

On Monday the children are to wear mufti. The student council would like them to dress as their favourite book character if they like. If they come just in mufti maybe they could bring their favourite book to school to share.

The gold coin donation is going to support a school in Fiji that was devastated by the latest cyclone.

Have a lovely weekend - summer is finally here!

Week Eight - Getting Ready Santa is Almost Here!

Week Eight

It has been lovely being in Room 7 for the past few days. 

The children have enjoyed some different things with action stations. I have brought in a teepee and a big blanket. The creative play with these has been exciting!

Please read the EOTC notice for next week. This is coming home in hard copy as well.

If you are able to join us on Monday, Wednesday or Friday please let me know.

What does my child need to wear:

Monday - PE Gear

Tuesday - PE Gear (Cricket Coaching) and Togs

Wednesday - Mufti and Togs

Thursday - PE Gear (Cricket Coaching) and we are also walking to the Alexandra Primary Production. 

Friday - Normal Uniform

We have started looking at Christmas and have been talking about the quote, "This Christmas be thankful for what you have. You can always have more but you can also have less" Have a look at our Christmas tree in our foyer. It is filled with things we are thankful for.

We have a busy week with lots happening so the children will be bringing home browsing books. 

Kate is teaching Monday, Tuesday and Friday and Sue is back for Wednesday, Thursday.

Have a wonderful week
Kate and Sue
