Welcome to a brand new school year! It was great to see everyone return today, bright-eyed and enthusiastic (and lots of new hair cuts!). Students received several notes today, including class equipment needs and a medical information note for our excursion next Tuesday to the Outdoor Education Centre. Please make sure your permission note, payment and medical form is returned to school ASAP.
Students also received a note about our Swimming Carnival which will take place next Thursday 5th Feb. Parents/families are more than welcome to attend this event, and Mr Slade would love some volunteers to help with timekeeping.
There will be lots of events coming up later this term including our Meet and Greet afternoon. This will give us an opportunity to discuss specific classroom routines and procedures. Homework will begin in Week 3. I will also be updating our OC Events page as dates/excursions are confirmed.
In the coming weeks, students will participate in activities and a video conference about cyber safety, in preparation for the implementation of BYOD later this term.
Farewell and congratulations to Heidi and her family who have relocated to Sydney after being offered places in the NSW Institute of Sport for Diving and Pymble Ladies College. A terrific achievement, but you will be greatly missed Heidi!
Well done to everyone for a wonderful first day back!
