WELCOME BACK TO MR HAWKE
After the birth of his beautiful son, Mr Hawke is now a back at school. Welcome back Mr Hawke! Your other children missed you!
OZ TAG GALA DAY
What a fantastic day our Oz Tag teams had in Belmont last Friday. Nearly 80 students participated on the day and they certainly did us proud. They conducted themselves beautifully on and off the field and had a tremendous day.
There were about 14 schools who participated and the referees were students from Hunter Sports High School. Although we had lots of wins on the day, it was a non-competitive day and our students had a great time.
A huge thank you to parents and carers for coming along and supporting your children on the day. Your attendance is always welcome and much appreciated!
Meet our new giraffe for the garden! Bought to replace one that went missing some years ago, we are now going to hand it over to the students to paint and style ready for our school grounds. And of course, we’re probably going to need to name it…
PARTNERSHIP WITH GOOGLE
Our school has been identified as a leading school in the use of technology to complement student learning. As such the Department of Education’s Information Technology Directorate and Google will be coming on board in the coming years to identify ways in which students can access a range of products and to develop the capacity of staff to utilise their products into classrooms and administrative practices. This should be a really exciting new direction for the school.
ENROLMENTS FOR 2019
To enable us to correctly estimate enrolments and staff the school appropriately for 2019, I need all parents enrolling new students for K-6 to complete enrolment forms and leave their details at the office. Please let me know of any neighbours and friends, who may not have children already at this school but will have school age children for 2019 so we can then contact them and include them on our numbers for next year.
If your child is ill and cannot attend school, please advise absence via the school app. For unexplained absences an SMS alert advising your child has not arrived in class will be sent to you. We ask that you respond to this SMS promptly.
Many thanks for your continued support.
Enjoy your week
