Term 3

We’re looking forward to what we hope will be a ‘lockdown free’ Term 3. Once again it will be a busy term with activities and events including; Year Prep, 2, 3 and 5 students participating in their respective swimming programs, Book Week, Science Day, Pyjama Day, PFA Bake Sale, Fathers’ Day stall, Year 2 Sleepover and the Art show. Students will also be competing in the District Athletics and Basketball carnivals, along with the Year 3/4 Soccer Gala Day and the Aeroschools State Championships. A variety of incursions and excursions will also be taking place.

Parent/Teacher Interviews

I’m sure you all found yesterday’s parent/teacher interviews a positive experience via Webex and enjoyed having the opportunity to discuss your child’s/children’s progress and achievements for Semester 1. The class and specialist teachers value these sessions and spent a great deal of time preparing for each interview to ensure that they were valuable and worthwhile.

Senior Toilets

Both the Girls’ and Boys’ senior toilets have been given an upgrade with internal tiling of the walls being completed in both facilities. The tiling has certainly freshened up these spaces and given the interiors a sharper, cleaner look and feel.

Sports News

Best wishes to the students who are competing in the Hockey Gala Day tomorrow at Elgar Park. Also to the students competing on Thursday in the Division Cross-country Carnival being held at Ruffey Lake Park. We look forward to hearing of their endeavours.

Also, congratulations to Eliza C (605) for recently being selected in the School Sport Victoria state hockey team. A wonderful achievement by her.   

Shade Sail/Tiered Seating Project

We are currently waiting for the Building Permit to be issued for the project to commence. Once this is obtained then work will commence on the installation of the poles for the shade sails. The recent lockdown period has set the project timeline back, but we are still hopeful of work commencing at some stage in the upcoming holiday period.

End Term 2

A reminder that the students will be dismissed at 2:30pm this Friday.
