KEEPING YOU INFORMED
CURRICULUM DAY - MONDAY 18TH AUGUST
Please note that this Monday, 18th August, we will be holding a Curriculum Day in which we, the staff, will be working on developing our understanding of the Australian Curriculum (AusVELS) with a particular focus on creating Integrated (History, Geography and Science) units of work.
Hence the children are not required at school on Monday 18th August.
Also a reminder that our Out of School Hours Care program will operate from 7:15 am to 6:15 pm if you need care for your child(ren). Please ensure you book via http://www.campaustralia.com.au/, or alternatively feel free to see or contact Grace (our After School Hours Care coordinator) at school.
School Hall Fundraising Drive
Kovid (Year 5) has a dream to build a new school hall and has subsequently commenced a fundraising drive to work towards this. In fact, a whole new momentum has taken place since Kovid announced his idea. Last Friday Anya, Amrita and Neha (all in Year 5) approached us and asked whether it would be possible for them to make and then sell “loom bands” with the profits also going towards the drive. Last week Movinya (Year 4) also donated a substantial amount of money which is also wonderful.
As a means of keeping our school community informed as to how much has been raised for this initiative, we will include a “fundraising meter” on the front page of our school newsletters and our website (right hand side panel)
