Parent Teacher Meet and Greet sessions

Just a reminder to everyone for the meet and greet times for next week if any parents have not finalised. If you have any difficulties logging on or making a booking please contact the office to ensure you have a suitable time. Please note Mrs Mcfarlanes’ class (Rm 8) will be having their sessions the following week on Wednesday 27th February. Mr Bowers’ class (Rm 9) will be having their sessions on Tuesday 19th and Thursday 21st February.

School Requisite Payments

Thank you to all the families that have paid. We are hoping that as many families as possible are able to assist us with early payments so that the costs are distributed equitably across the school. It is a fully costed amount for the items used at school or taken home to be used. We have finalised copies for all year levels for your reference and are available at the office on request. We are still much lower than many other schools in the local area. All families have received their invoice and options available for payment which we believe will be very helpful in this direct debit era. The ‘Requisite Payment’ is not optional.

Years 3 to 6 Swimming Programs Completed

The achievement and behaviour of the students has once again made us all very proud here at school. We always expect exemplary behaviour when out and about representing our school. Thank you to all the teachers and support officers that assisted over the two weeks of swimming so far.

Lost Property

This area outside the Library has a number of items – Please have a look with your child if you are already missing an item. There are a number of the light weight jackets that will soon be needed hanging there and not labelled. Please check to see if you recognise any items.

Healthy Lunches

Thank you to all the parents that have provided such healthy lunches for their children for the start of this year. It is really pleasing to see the number of healthy sandwiches, bread rolls, yogurts and a variety of fruit being sent along in preference to packaged foods. Our Canteen has met the requirements of a “Healthy Schools Canteen” based on the Victorian Standards. Please check out the menu that is available for each Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Beautiful fresh and nutritious food topped up by some homemade cookies each week. It is well supported by our staff as well and that also is a good testament to the quality of the foods sold.


Thank you to the Captains and Vice Captains for taking up their position at this week’s assembly. They will from now until the end of the semester in June take assembly presentations on behalf of the school. They have made a really strong start to their leadership roles already. We always see such immense improvement in their public speaking skills over the next 5 months. The positive attitude to their new roles is a pleasure to see.

Book Covering Assistance

If anyone could assist Mrs Humphrey with some additional covering could you please let her know at the office. If you feel confident enough to take a few home you may be able to assist with this as well. Please see Mrs Humphrey directly either at the front office or in the library preparation area. She will appreciate any assistance you are able to give.

School Council Nominations

We have two parent positions open for 2019 and the ‘Self-nomination’ form or “Nomination’ form for another person can be collected from the front office. If you go either way a seconder must sign the nomination form. We look forward to new people joining our School Council each year.
