Mother’s Day

Next Friday 7th May we will have our annual Mother’s Day stall which has been kindly organised by our Parents and Friends.  The gifts are all $5.00 each and have been beautifully wrapped and are ready to be purchased and enjoyed.  I would like to thank Fiona Partington our Pastoral Care Officer for her work sourcing all  the gifts and coordinating the wrapping, they look amazing! 

All mums, step mums and carers are invited for coffee and cake next Friday from 8.30am to celebrate Mother’s Day and to acknowledge all you do to care for your children.  We have organised a coffee van to be onsite, please join us if you can. 

Annual General Meeting

I would like to invite you to our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Wednesday 19th May at 6.30pm and encourage you to think about your involvement in being on our school board.  Our School Board meet twice a term and during these meetings we discuss opportunities for our school, financial considerations, and directions.  Parent input is really valued, and it is important we have a balance of gender and experiences.  If you are interested in being a part of our board, please return the attached nomination sheet to the office by Friday 14th May.   


This term during weeks 3 and 4 our year 3 and 5 students will be engaging in NAPLAN assessments.  This is a point in time national testing which is used by our system and school to see how each student is progressing in literacy and numeracy compared to peers throughout Australia.  The data we receive supports us in identifying strengths of our students, enables us to look for patterns or areas for improvement and plan for future learning.  Some students can become anxious around this testing, especially if it is their first experience.  It is suggested that to support our children to remain calm about their assessments we listen to their concerns and remain positive and reassure them that it is one test and that the teachers also use other data in conjunction with NAPLAN to determine their results.  It’s important students are well rested by having a good night sleep the night before and a healthy breakfast and also reinforcing the importance of having a go and doing their best. 


Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead.

Warm regards,

Leanne Johansen
