Premier’s Spelling Bee

This term in Week 3 on Wednesday 2nd August, students from Years 3 to 6 are invited to take part in the annual Premier’s Spelling Bee Competition. This is a fun event that encourages students to engage with spelling and promotes improved literacy.

Parents and caregivers, we would love for you to come along and support your children on the day. Competitions are organised into two divisions and will run at the following times:
Stage 3 (Years 5 and 6): Upper Hall, 11:40 am Stage 2 (Years 3 and 4): Upper Hall, 9:20 am

The winners and runners-up from each Stage will be presented with a certificate at our weekly assembly the following week, and then move onto the regional finals in September. Word lists are available on the Arts Unit website by using the link Premier’s Spelling Bee and the password riddle. Junior words begin at Level1 and go to Level 5. Senior words begin at Level 2 and go to Level 7.

Education Week Celebrations

We are celebrating Education Week on Thursday 3rd August, 2017.

Grandparents, parents and friends are invited to join us for this special occasion, beginning at 9.30am with an assembly under our COLA. We will be highlighting some of the fantastic creative and performing arts programs taking place in our school, with a showcase of performances from our school band, aerobics team, choir groups, public speakers and dance group.

After our performances, you are invited to join your children for a shared BYO picnic lunch and visit our student Art Gallery set up in the lower hall. A gold coin donation would be greatly appreciated to help support our creative and performing arts programs.

We look forward to celebrating and sharing this wonderful day with you.
