Message From Miss Melanie

The term is rapidly coming to an end but I am proud to say that our attendance has remained high and our students are engaged in their learning. Thank you once again to all of our families for supporting the students to come to school and to try their best, we can't do our job without this support.

Since our last newsletter we have had some exciting activities but the one that stands out the most was Book Week. I hope you all checked out the great clip that Miss Tiana created showing all the great costumes on the day? We also had our Book Fair and this was very well supported by our families. Your purchases allow us to secure additional money to contribute to the purchase of new books to be used in classrooms or to add to our library collection. Thank you to Miss Lesley, Miss Kylie and Miss Kellie for organising the Book Fair - the Library looked awesome.

On Tuesday we were lucky enough to have a visiting soccer coach. come across from Broome to help develop the skills in our students across Years 1 - 6. He will be across again in weeks 9 and 10 to assist in the development of these skills further. We have been able to secure this opportunity through the Sporting Schools grant and thank them for the opportunity to have this excellent opportunity.

Our final assembly for the term will be held next week on Friday at 1.45pm. We look forward to seeing our Yr 1/2 class present their item and for our families to attend.

God Bless.

Miss Melanie
