Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Carers, students and families,

Welcome to Week 8. The staff and I would like to congratulate most of our students on their fabulous behaviour in meeting school expectations. We are very proud.

PEANUTS/Anaphylactic Reaction Reminder

The number of children with allergies to different food products and substances is growing. To maximise the wellbeing and safety for all students, parents are asked not to pack peanut butter sandwiches or nut products for your children. Please let’s work together to provide a safe environment for all students.

Presentation Day

Please join us on Tuesday 6th December 9:30-10:30am for our Presentation Day. This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our students in all key learning areas. This formal ceremony invitation is extended to all families, special guests and community members.

Assessment & Reporting

Staff are finalising Semester Two reports. These will be sent home on Friday 9th December. If you have any questions, please contact your child's class teacher.

Carols Night

Don't forget to return your raffle tickets with your name on them before Tuesday 6th December.

Year 2 Swimming School

What incredible weather we have had for our Year 2 Swim School. Students have been working very hard on progressing their swimming skills. Swimming is such a vital skill for our students to be confident in, so it’s been pleasing to see so many of our students attending and working hard in the pool.

We were very excited to try out the new equipment at Federal Park before our lessons commenced.

Swim School will finish this Friday 2nd December.

A reminder that the NSW Government is helping kids get active with the Active Kids program. The Active Kids program includes swimming lessons.

The Active Kids program provides two $100 vouchers for parents, guardians and carers of school-enrolled children to use towards sport and active recreation costs each year. Further details can be found at Apply for an Active Kids voucher | Service NSW
