Glengala Gazette – Issue #12

Building Works Update

We are excited to see work commencing on the installation of our new shade structures over the playground area this week after a slight delay, resulting in a large section of our playground being blocked off for the last few weeks. It is expected that the playground will be fully opened again in the next few weeks for student use once installation is completed.

Demolition of the old north building was completed during the holidays, and final designs for the new building are currently being finalised before construction commences. We are looking forward to moving into our beautiful new building later in the year!

 Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea and Craft Session

We are excited to welcome mothers and the special women in our Glengala PS family for a special Afternoon Tea and Craft session this Friday, May 10th. Thank you to all who returned their RSVP slip earlier this week for this event.

NAPLAN – Year 3 and 5

Students in Year 3 and Year 5 will be participating in NAPLAN testing over the next two weeks. All students will complete four tests during this time, in reading, writing, conventions of language (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and numeracy. Please keep in mind that these tests provide only a snapshot of your child’s learning in specific areas, and do not capture your child’s passions and interests, their kindness and compassion or their dreams for the future. If you have any questions or concerns, please Sam F or myself.

Glengala PS will be a polling place for the upcoming Federal Election on Saturday, May 18th. Polling will take place in our LLC. We will be holding a sausage sizzle fundraiser on the day.
