We have had a wonderful beginning to Term 2 so far. Our Foundation and Year 5/6 students have come together for Buddies and PMP has also begun for our Foundation students.
We have a large number of events happening this term which we can’t wait for including our first ever whole school athletics day this Friday, excursions to the Zoo and Healesville Sanctuary, Superspeak and Family Life.
As well, we have Subway and Sushi lunches, district cross country and ICAS.
On Wednesday we are holding our 2023 Foundation Information Night for prospective Foundation parents in the Foundation area at 7pm.
Also, we are almost ready for the slab for our new double story building to be laid. We can’t wait for it to be ready for 2023.
What a term!
Well after what has been a rather tough year, since coming back onsite we have tried to provide our students with as many opportunities as we could in a COVID safe way. We have held incursions, excursions, a camp and a sleepover amongst other events. In the last two weeks alone we have had our whole school Christmas Concert with BYO dinner and over 500 people in attendance, our Year 6 Graduation where we were able to bring everyone together to celebrate the 7 years of these students primary schooling and Foundation Graduation saw not only the Foundation students talk about their achievements and dreams, but also saw their buddies come up with them to receive their certificate before having a picnic with their buddy and their buddy’s family. Today, as well as it being class party day, we held our staff versus students netball and football matches. Whilst there was some conjecture regarding who won the relay early in the year (It really was the students), today the teachers ran out winners.
We would like to thank our wonderful community of students, parents and teachers for all of their hard work not only since we have come back but over the whole year. We are seriously lucky for each other and extremely thankful for you all.
Have a merry and safe Christmas!
Last Thursday on the 11th day of the 11th month, we were once again fortunate to be able to participate in the Croydon RSL’s Remembrance Day service. As well as having the opportunity to lay a wreath, our Senior Choir sang the song ‘I Am Australian.’
We feel privileged and honoured to have had this opportunity.
Hi Year 5 Students and Parents.
Just a reminder that we need to have your Jacket Orders returned to school as soon as possible so we are able to place the order. This is so you can have your new jacket before you start in Year 6 next year.
Please send your order forms to the school email address as soon as possible.
Make sure that you include your credit card details so we are able to process your payment. Thank you.
Whilst we cannot all be together each day at present, we have loved seeing our students daily in class and small groups, as well as for our weekly online assemblies. We have also loved the awards being presented fortnightly by our school leaders, Film Club videos also motivational talks which our students and teachers have worked together to present.
We seriously can’t wait to have our students onsite with us- the place isn’t the same without their smiling faces.
