Athletics Day

Athletics Day Practise Congratulations to all the students that have been practising for the Athletics Day in PE classes , Sport time and break times. We hope for a good day and remind all students to put sunscreen on at home if possible. Hats are essential on the day. The Uniform shop have plenty of house T shirts ready for parents to purchase if necessary. If you are unsure of your child’s house colours you can check at the Front Office. Please organise as soon as possible to prevent a rush on the last couple of days. Parents are welcome on Sports Day to purchase a tea or coffee from the canteen with a home-made biscuit.

Slap Cheek Information

This week we’ve had a case of Slap Cheek reported to the school. The first symptoms usually appear 5 to 7 days after exposure to an infectious person. The rash appears after 14 to 21 days. Once the rash starts, people are no longer infectious. Symptoms start with: fever, tiredness, runny nose and joint pains. This is followed by a bright red rash on the cheeks ('slapped' cheeks) and a generalised 'lacy' rash on the body that spreads down the arms and legs. The rash lasts 7 to 10 days and is sometimes itchy. Sometimes the rash comes and goes. Adults may have no symptoms at all, or may develop a rash, joint pains or swelling, or both. The joint symptoms usually only last a week or two, but can last longer.

Irymple Secondary College Extension Program

Over the year our Year 5 and 6 students have participated in the ‘Irymple Secondary College Enrichment Program’. We thank all of the staff at Irymple Secondary College for the work they have done with our students. Thank you to our Year 5 and 6 teachers who have assisted with distributing information and collating names for the workshops. Irymple Secondary College plans to run the program again in 2018. I am sure they would love to hear from staff, parents or students who have any suggestions for enrichment programs in 2018. I am happy to pass on any ideas that are brought to me. The enrichment programs are a marvellous way to meet the staff and to get a feel for the Secondary setting. Irymple Secondary College will be

mostly rebuilt in the next 12 months and the students will have state of the art facilities. They will be working within learning hubs and will be well prepared as a result of working in a hub for all of Year 5 and Year 6.

Parent Opinion Survey
