Whilst we are looking forward to the Christmas Market, a change of date to Tuesday 18 December MIGHT take place due to the predicted weather for Thursday. We are monitoring the situation closely and will confirm the information as soon as a decision is made. A change of date would allow us to enjoy the festivities without the hassle of umbrellas and gumboots.
The Christmas Concert will still take place on Thursday 13 December at 9am in the gym, regardless of the weather.
Should any change take place we will communicate it here on our website, through the before and after school announcements and on each year level blog.
It’s not long until our African Pride Day! We are excited to promote and explore a variety of African cultures, enjoy some special guests and participate in a range of interesting learning activities. Parents are welcome to join us for the assembly from 9:00am.
Colour Powder The colour powder used in our event has been sourced direct from India, the home of Holi Powder. It is made of high quality corn starch and permitted food colours. It’s non-toxic, biodegradable, skin safe and environmentally friendly. Toxicological Risk Assessment and ingredient listings can be obtained from the School Office upon request. Students with asthma are advised to be careful in their decision to participate.
What to wear: A white top is best to see all the colours. Whilst the colour is washable it is best to wear clothes that you don’t mind getting ruined.
Where to go: The event will be held on the school oval. Whilst you are waiting for your run time you are invited to join the dance party in the centre of the oval.

2. Cash donations: Complete the back page of the Sponsorship Form and return to the school.
Our values inform our thoughts, words and actions. Our values are important because they help us to grow and develop. The decisions we make are a reflection of our values and beliefs, and are always directed towards a specific purpose.
We are undergoing a review of our school values and would like your opinion in establishing a new set of values that reflect our current school community. Our teachers and the children are sharing their opinion at school. We have prepared a survey specifically for our parents.
We are very excited to see our children using our new soccer goal and basketball ring in the junior play area. This equipment has come just in time for sunny Term 4 and is a continuation of our commitment to healthy and happy children.
A friendly reminder that children require school hats for T4. It is important your child’s name is written on the hat to ensure it does not go missing, as they tend to get mixed up from time to time. Water bottles are also encouraged, so children can continue to drink water in class without a disruption to their learning.
Congratulations to all the winning classes of our first ever Attendance Chip Challenge. The following classes are having their ‘Footy Day’ chips provided by the school: 006, 103, 213, 309, 414, 520 and 622.
We would also like to thank everyone who attended the Maths Family Night. The evening was very successful and we hope those who were in attendance enjoyed themselves. Well done to the prize winners!
Our second ever Cultural Connectionz celebration was this month. On September 7th we celebrated Polyfest with a range of foods, dances and activities. It is fair to say it was a fun and vibrant day.
Lastly we hope our Year 3 and Year 4 children enjoyed their experiences on camp the past few weeks. The teachers were very impressed by the behaviour of our children, but were more impressed by getting a good night sleep back at home afterwards!
