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!
Talofa! Today is the day for Polyfest. Thank you to all of the families who helped set the day up and all the children who contributed to the planning. We look forward to enjoying the speeches and performances this morning and we are all excited to taste some traditional Island food with our PolyFEAST. In class children will watch the following video to gain a better idea of why our children love their Islands!
Be sure to check back next week for a summary video of Polyfest.

We are very pleased to announce that City of Casey has now approved a supervised school crossing to be installed on Silky Oak Drive outside the front of the school. This crossing will be installed during the school holidays, ready for the start of Term Four.
We thank the City of Casey for working with the school and supporting us to prioritise the safety of our children and community at the front of the school. We are also enormously grateful to all the parents and community members who have raised concerns, both with the school and with the council. Thank you!
