Term 1 Week 8 2020

From the Deputy Principal

Attention: 2020 NAPLAN has been cancelled.

Please see the media release issued by the Education Council on 20 March 2020.

National Day of Action Against Bullying

Friday, 20 March is National Day of Action Against Bullying – The NDA have decided to postpone their National Day of Action Against Bullying because of the current COVID-19 outbreak. 

However, we can say Bullying – No Way! everyday of the year; therefore, students can wear free dress for this day with something orange in recognition of National Day of Action Against Bullying.  As always, outfits must be sun safe, no bare midriff or inappropriate slogans.  Shoes must be closed in and hats are required. No gold coin necessary.

Please have a look at some of the video’s we've previously shared on our Facebook page to help students understand about bullying and how they can play a part in saying “No Way!”.

Kind regards,

Chrissy Wellwood (Deputy Principal) 

Green Group News

There have been some big changes in the green group this term. The money we received from the grant has gone towards extending and adding plenty more garden beds and equipment for our students to use. We have been planting a variety of fruits and vegetables for our tuckshop and community to use, some of them include:

  • Silver beat
  • Spinach 
  • Kale
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Strawberries
  • Beans
  • Pineapples
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Beetroot
  • Basil
  • Rosemary

Soon we'll be harvesting a big crop of sweet potatoes to make our very own healthy chips with rosemary and thyme. We have had a big turn out of students from Years 1 - 5 helping on Mondays and Fridays which has been so great to see! I can't wait to see more students down there helping out where they can.
