Term 3 Thank You
Thank you to everyone in the community that has made this term the success it has been. Parent helpers in both the canteen and classrooms, as well as on any special activity days and excursions, really contribute to making our school wonderful.
We have had huge success with our sporting results, with some of our Senior Department teams qualifying for Sunraysia Divisions, and have received pleasing results with both our NAPLAN and ICAS assessments.
This is all due to the hard work and supporting environment that our students, teachers and parents contribute to.
Other events have included the Wheel's Day Homework Reward, the Grade 2 Sleepover, 5/6 Travel Expo, and the 3/4 Trivia.

Computer Selections for 2018
Please be on the lookout for the note regarding year 2 to 6 preferences for 2018. Purchased computers will be imaged with all the latest school software and will remain under strict DET usage agreements. At the end of the period they will be re-imaged with the full Microsoft Office Suite and remain the property of the purchasing family.
We are attempting to give every student the access and learning opportunities that we are required to offer for preparation for 21st century learning. In addition to this we are maintaining sets of iPads for use in the Junior units with the many teaching and learning applications that are available. If you have any questions please see Mr Beer or Mr Thompson as we would be happy to assist any families.
This week we have had a number of children with a vomiting episode. As always washing hands is the best way to avoid catching it. Please if your children have been ill and vomited or had severe diarrhoea THEY MUST STAY HOME for 48 hours after their last incident. It is not fair to other children and staff (particularly those who are pregnant) and we have students who have chronic illnesses that cannot have their immunity compromised further.
