The Pelican Brief

General Information and Upcoming Events


  • Below is a link shared by Corinne Quayle (Cove's mum). Some fun for the weekend if you're interested.
  • https://www.playworldaustralia.com.au/en.html
  • Come as a Farmer fund-raising. Tuesday 28 & Thursday 30 August. Children may come dressed as a farmer and make a donation to Buy a Bale. If your child attends both days they may dress on both days, but only one donation is required.
  • Just a friendly reminder that it's a good idea to place an ice pack in your child's lunch box. The weather will be warming up soon and lunches are not refrigerated. Afternoon tea is placed in the fridge, so no need for one in there.
  • Banksmeadow Preschool enrolments are happening now. If you know someone looking for an early childhood preschool placement, please let them know.
  • 2:55pm is Preschool pick up time. Teachers often have paperwork to complete and meetings to attend. Thank you for your understanding.

Book Character Parade & Author Visit


Everyone displayed confidence and enthusiasm as they participated in the school book parade. They also sat and watched the rest of the children in the parade respectfully. The children thought it was funny that the teachers dressed up too. It is always fun to dress up and we will be having more dress up days before the end of the year.

Book Week has been spent enjoying lots of books together, both fiction and non-fiction. The children love hearing books read every day and it is important to always read to your child at home.

Our author talk was done by Yvette Poshoglian. She explained how authors create characters and how they have special personalities. Yvette showed the children different pictures of book characters and asked the children to name them. Some of the books that she writes are: Ella and Olivia; Ready, Set, Spy; Eloise and Frankie Fox. She spoke nicely to the children who were listening well and trying hard to answer the questions.
