Junior Years Christmas Gifts

10 November 2017

At a recent Parent Representatives meeting, there was discussion and agreement regarding gift giving within classrooms. Whilst we do not wish to dampen any Christmas cheer, we are very conscious of costs to parents. This year we will run a Secret Santa within the classrooms and we are asking parents to provide one gift only up to the value of $10. This needs to be a gift suitable for any child in that classroom who may receive this during the Secret Santa time.

We are asking that your daughter not bring in lots of cards - only to her buddy or coaches/tutors/teachers. We would also ask that girls refrain from bringing in candy canes. I trust that these arrangements are met with your approval and I thank you, in anticipation, for your support.

Mr Steve Warren
Head of Junior Years

Attention all Year 5 and 6 parents! Please find linked a short survey for you to complete about your child.

With your consent, your child will also complete a short (anonymous) survey about themselves, during school time later this term.

Woolworths Earn and Learn

8 September 2017

This year both the Kindergarten and Junior Years will be participating in the Woolworths Earn & Learn program. Through this program we will be able to obtain new educational resources for our school/early learning centre – and all we need you to do is shop for your groceries at Woolworths.

From Wednesday 26 July to Tuesday 19 September or while stock lasts, we are collecting Woolworths Earn & Learn Stickers.  You will get one Woolworths Earn & Learn Sticker for every $10 spent (excluding liquor, tobacco and gift cards). Place the Woolworths Earn & Learn Sticker onto a Woolworths Earn & Learn Sticker Sheet and when it’s complete, the Sticker Sheet can be dropped into the Collection Box here at the school or at your local Woolworths.

At the end of the promotion, we’ll be able to get some great new equipment. The range is extensive and offers lots of items ideal for our students – including resources for Maths, English, Science and some fantastic fun supplies for Arts & Craft, Sport and for our library.

Collection boxes are located on the Kindergarten verandah, Prep room and Junior Years Reception.

Lunches

From time to time we have children in the Junior Years Office telling staff they have no lunch. While we would never let them go hungry, we are often challenged to find something for them! Sometimes they eat all of their food at morning tea and leave nothing for lunch. Would you please check with your daughter and ensure she keeps food for lunch?

From next week, we will keep a list of girls asking for food and we will advise the class teachers so that they can contact you and keep you aware.
