Supporters Day
The students are allowed to wear mufti clothes that respresent their favourite sporting team. They will need to wear closed in sports shoes, hats and clothing appropriate for school and the weather conditions please.
School Holidays
The students will bring home their pencil cases on Friday afternoon in Week 10, so that they can be restocked for Term 4. We have noticed that a number of children do not have enough writing pencils and they have been misplacing them. Please ensure they have at least 4 writing pencils that have their names clearly marked on them. The students will probably need some more glue, possibly a rubber and a sharpener that collects the shavings in a barrel please. Thanking you for your continued support.

Thank you
Thank you to all the Year 2 students and their families who assisted with making our mural behind the Mary MacKillop Centre on Tuesday afternoon. Remember to keep collecting grey, blue and green shopping bags so that we can continue to add to and eventually complete the mural. So far the mural looks great, we can't wait to see it completed. We are sure it will be fantastic.

Stage 1 Excursion
Thank you to all the parents and grandparents that joined us for our recess break in the gardens. The students had a wonderful time and learnt a lot about caring for and protecting our environment. 


Friendly Reminders
If your child arrives at school after the first bell, they should be accompanied to the front office to get a yellow late note. 

Students need to ensure they have been to the bathroom prior to school and in break times, so that they are not missing valuable learning and teaching time.

Homework - Home Reading every night for 10 minutes and the homework sheet to be completed by a Friday each week. If your child needs additional time they can complete the homework sheet on a weekend and return it on a Monday morning.
