While we recognise that mornings can be a busy time, it has come to our attention that we have some students who are regularly late for class. It is important that girls are on time for class so that they can settle in for the day before getting involved in their learning.
Girls in Years One to Six are able to arrive from 8:00am when there is a teacher on duty in the Junior Years Courtyard. Prep classrooms open at 8.20am. The morning bell is rung at 8.25am and class starts promptly at 8.30am.

The Glennie Community Kindergarten is looking forward to holding the Art Show and Exhibition on Friday 1 June in the Glennie Art and Design studio.
The ogranisers desperately need some Kindergarten parents to assist with this event and are also looking for donations for their raffles. This is a fundraising event for the Kindergarten and all funds raised go directly towards purchasing resources that will benefit Kindergarten children.
Please contact Mr Warren directly via email email@example.com if you can assist in any way or are able to donate something for our raffles. A huge thank you to the Morton family (parents of Georgie), who have donated all of the wine for this event. This is very much appreciated.

Design your perfect bedroom.
A groovy little creative workshop with an award-winning interior designer.
It’s for girls of 10 to 15 years, it’s full of creativity, it’s quality (of course) and because there is a lot of special one-on-one time, the class size is limited.

Have you checked your daughter’s winter uniform? Girls will require these immediately after the May long weekend. GOSS has all requirements that you may need if she has grown since last year. Thank you for your support in making sure that your daughter is prepared for this changeover.
A reminder that girls from Years 4 to 6 are required to have a blazer for all excursions or formal occasions, but may wear it any day. Girls in lower levels must have their jumper but may, of course wear a blazer as well. Although grey socks form part of the winter uniform, navy tights may be worn if the weather is exceptionally cold.
