Rebuild Information

This week sees the arrival of the portables to the oval.  It will take a couple of weeks to finish setting them up for students to move into.  It is very exciting watching the crane lift the buildings into their new temporary home.  Unfortunately during this time the oval will be closed for students to allow access for works and for the safety of the students.    We will let you all know more information as soon as it becomes available.

Prep Transition has begun!

This past Tuesday saw the first of our series of Prep 2018 transition afternoons.  It was lovely to meet so many of our new preps and their families.  They all enjoyed sitting and listening to Louise read Mem Fox’s “Where is the green sheep?” and making their own sheep to take home.  Our next afternoon is in 2 weeks at 2.15pm on Tuesday the 14th of November.  Moving On Up transition activities will begin over the next few weeks with each year level spending some time in their next learning space. Staff to be announced as so as possible.


Sleepover Next Thursday for the Prep -2 Learning Spaces

Staff and students are very excited for the upcoming sleepover.  Next Thursday night the school will be abuzz with excited children and staff.

Great Mini-Art Expo and BBQ Last Week

We had a fantastic turn out for our mini-art show last Thursday.  The BBQ raised $200 to support our Year 6 Graduation.  Thank you to all who supported our school, to staff who gave their time and to Diana and the fabulously talented students who displayed some emerging art works, including our winning art installation from the recent community art project.
