A few reminders…

The last few weeks of this term are certainly shaping up to be extremely busy! Here are a few reminders about events taking place…

Parent Teacher Interviews-

These will take place next fortnight. If you are yet to book a time, please do so by visiting schoolinterviews.com.au and using the school event code – N54SY. Bookings close today at 4pm! Alternatively, you can complete a ‘paper’ copy that was sent home last week.

Canberra-

Our Canberra excursion is coming up in Week 10. Please ensure you have returned both your permission note and green medical forms. All notes sent home can be accessed on our school website if you need another copy. You will also find our itinerary and what to bring in this section. Please ensure all payments are finalised at our office before the trip.

Engineering Excursion-

In Week 9 the OC will attend an excursion to Kahibah Public School to compete in the Science and Engineering Challenge. The cost is $15 and a sausage sizzle lunch is provided.

Book Week-

Be sure to come along and celebrate Book Week with us next Wednesday. It would be great to see all our students get into the spirit of things and dress up. There is a shared lunch provided by our P&C and the assembly and parade will be held in the afternoon session.

Year 5/6 Fair-

Thanks to everyone who has already brought in money and donations for this fundraising event. Any donations of lollies, trash and treasure and drinks would be greatly appreciated. If you are planning on donating cakes, ice cream or items for the pizza stall, please bring these to the classroom on the morning of the fair.

Lastly, I’d just like to congratulate our students who all sat the Newcastle Permanent Maths competition yesterday. It was great to see such terrific effort and application demonstrated by our students and I look forward to receiving our results early next term.

If you have any questions about any of the events taking place, please let me know. See you at our parent – teacher interviews!
