Amended dates…. AGAIN! Sorry.

Afternoon all,

It’s come to light that we will need to amend the date for our proposed excursion.

The finalised date will be WEEK 4: Friday the 10th November.

Please note, we have also planned to have the 3/4 Sleepover on that night! There will be more details to follow this week.

In Kindness,

Ché and Beth

Outdoor Education Day

Just a reminder that tomorrow is Outdoor Education Day take 2!


Students need to supply their own lunch and recess and the canteen will be open as usual. Eating times will be slightly altered to suit activities.

Students are asked to wear sports uniform to suit the activities they are participating in.

Amended dates

Excursion is proposed for the 27th October not the 20th as mentioned in the last blog post. The 20th October will be a pupil free day due to the Spring Fair.


We are still keen to lock in parent helpers if you have a clearance and are available.

Parent helpers needed

Dear Parents,


Our classes are in the process of  planning an Outdoor Education  excursion on Friday 20th October. We will need several parent volunteers to enable the excursion to go ahead. If you are able to assist us on this date could you please let us know either via the blog or in person. You will require your Catholic Education Police Clearance. If you do not yet have this you would need to apply ASAP and can initiate this at the front office.

Excursions always rely heavily on parent helpers so it is worth considering applying for  your Police Clearance even if you can’t assist us this time.

A reminder that 3/4 BH have their assembly on Friday. Students are asked to wear their sports uniform to school and get changed into casual clothes later. The cafe will be open to parents while they wait for Assembly to start.

Friday is a casual day with a gold coin donation to support the spring fair.


The Outdoor Education Day that was planned for Thursday this week has been postponed. Students will still be sharing healthy salad rolls for lunch provided by teachers in the classroom.

3/4 BH Assembly – Important Request

Hi Parents,

On Friday 3/4 BH have their assembly. It is also a casual day to collect items for the Spring Fair. Due to the theme of our assembly we are pleading with the students to please wear their sports uniform to perform in the assembly (it will make sense when you see it) and then they are welcome to get changed into their casual attire afterwards.

They have been working incredibly hard on this performance and we look forward to sharing it with you.

PS. Some children are also being asked to come in ‘character’, please let me know if there are any questions or concerns.

Week 6 already !

Week 6 !

Time flies when you are having fun…..


We have a busy few weeks ahead.


RELAT: Tomorrow the Year 4 students will be undertaking the online Religion assessment. This is an assessment done in Catholic schools to collect data and information about student responses to a range of Religious Education topics. We have prepared the students within our Religion lessons in the class room and several weeks ago they also accessed a practice test to assist them with the format of the test. Results will be available to parents later in the year. We encourage all students to do their best in this assessment.



NAPLAN TRIAL: Year 4 students will be involved in trialling the new NAPLAN online testing this Wednesday. It is a test to see how our school infrastructure copes with large cohorts of students accessing the browser at one time and for staff and students to familiarise themselves with the new format of the test in preparation for 2018 testing. The results of the test will not be given to parents or staff and will not contribute to students NAPLAN assessments in the future.


ASSEMBLY PREP: Both classes have begun preparations for their buddy class assembly. 3/4 BH will perform in Week 7 and 3/4 CM will perform in week 8. We can’t wait for you to see your children once again sharing their gifts and talents on the stage.  The parent café will also be open in Week 7 prior to the assembly.


MITIOG: We are still waiting for a large number of permission notes before we can begin our MITIOG units of work. Please return these notes or let us know if you need another copy.


Learning Topics: At the moment students are busy on a range of activities including researching Australian landmarks, making 3D models, information report writing, fraction investigations, exploring concepts of time and lots more.


Here are some snapshots of our learning over the past few weeks.W




Father’s Day: On Friday there will be a Father’s Day stall for students to purchase from. Gifts range from $2-$5. There is also a raffle for Father’s Day, tickets available online (see prior post) or at the office.


In kindness,

Mrs Hawkes and Mr Murray
