Structured Play Term 3

On Wednesday and Thursday each week until further notice, students in Years 1-6 can bring their scooters or roller-skates to school to use at lunch time on the basketball courts.

Students are required to wear a helmet and must bring their own helmet along to join in.  Knee pads, elbow pads and wrist guards can be worn if provided.  We are running this as a trial to see how students respond to this activity.  If it gets very busy we will look at allocating smaller groups each day.  Please make sure that all items are clearly labelled with the students name on them.  Scooters need to be parked in the bike racks, helmets and roller skates can be stored in bags.  We need to avoid these items being stored in classrooms if possible as they take up a lot of space. 

The students are really excited about this lunchtime option.  We hope this arrangement does not create too much disruption when getting ready for school in the morning.  Our school is a very secure environment during the day and personal items are reasonably safe.  Please be aware that personal items are not covered by the schools insurance.  If you are not comfortable with your child participating in this activity they have many other lunchtime options to choose from. 

P & C Meeting

The P & C meeting previously advertised in the last Newsletter as being tonight, will be held next Monday night 10th August. The Board meeting will still be on at 6pm tonight.

Emotional Awareness and Resilience

Last term Tuart Forest advertised an opportunity for students to access free counselling/workshop services at school targeting emotional awareness and resilience. Our web post on the 2nd of July has all of the details about this.

If you already have or intend to follow up with a GP visit in order to get a referral, can you please contact the school either by phone on 9795 1525 or by dropping into the office. Forms are still available to collect from the front office. We are keen to know how much interest there is so that we can get groups organised for later in the term.

Woolworths Earn & Learn 2015

This year we will be participating in the Woolworths Earn & Learn
program. Through this program we will be able to get 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 15th July to Tuesday 8th September, 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 Library 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. If you’d
like to know more visit
