New students;

We would like to welcome back Troy & Alexander Poole who have returned to the school from the UK.

Parent information evening on new report format

At 6:00 pm on Tuesday the 4th of December I will be providing an opportunity for parents to look at the new report format that we are introducing. This will be a time to ask questions about the information that you will receive in the end of year report. With the removal of National Standards, reporting has changed and I will explain the new electronic version of reporting that will be linked into our School Management System.

I look forward to seeing as many of you that can make it at this busy time of year.

Remarkables Market Fundraising

Three of our amazing junior students made and sold cupcakes at the market last Saturday. This was part of their Inquiry project. They raised an amazing $292.60. The girls are busy deciding what resources to buy for the junior room.

Fun Run

FINAL money due back date was *Tuesday 27 November*, so please make sure you’ve returned all your money to *your classroom teacher* before then.

Students will be able to order their prizes from the 27th to the 30th of November – refer to the instructions on the website. This is so we can get the prizes here on time for the fun run day.

Contact Mrs Stanley via email if you have any problems!

Dear Parents,

In the Middlers we have been working our passion projects. Our key idea is “how our actions can change someones world”. As part of this our students are wanting to donate some things around the community. The students are asking if everyone could please bring in one item of nonperishable food, old clothes and toys and cheap toothbrushes. These items will be donated to the local Salvation Army and children in need. Some other students are wanting to donate money to help save and restore natural habitats for animals on the endangered list. They are asking for silver or gold coin donations to go in a cup that will be sitting in the lobby. We thank you for your contribution!
