Chess Club

Thank you to the many students who participated in the Chess Club trial session last Thursday.  David will begin lessons next term.  The lessons have moved to Tuesday lunch as the previous day clashed with Drama.  Enrolment forms and information will be handed to students at the first lesson.  

Year 3-6 Parish Mass

Year 3-6 students have a Parish Mass at Our Lady of Mount Carmel (OLMC) on Friday 26 April at 9am.  We ask that students are dropped off at the church by 8:50am.  Teachers will walk the students back to school at the conclusion of the mass.

ANZAC Day Assembly

There is a scheduled ANZAC Day assembly on Wednesday 24 April.  The assembly had been incorrectly published as being presented by Year 3.  The School Captains and Social Justice Leaders will be leading this assembly.

Harmony Day Celebrations

Last Friday we celebrated Harmony Day at Galilee. It was fantastic to see the students, teachers and some parents dressed in something representing their cultural background.



Parents Battle of the Bands

The D.O.G.S Parents’ Band is participating in a ‘Battle Of The Bands’ with 6 other local primary schools including St. Kilda Primary, St. Kilda Park Primary, Elwood Primary, East Bentleigh Primary, Gardenvale Primary & Ripponlea Primary.


The Parents Battle of the Bands will be staged at the Prince Bandroom (29 Fitzroy St, St Kilda) on the 23rd May, 2019. This is an all parent event with the funds raised used to expand the musical education programs and improve facilities for participating schools & help further our children's musical education.  It is also a great opportunity to connect with the different school communities and have a lot of fun.  All proceeds will be redistributed pro-rata of parents’ attendance/number of tickets sold by each school.


Tickets are only $17.85 online (or $20 at the door on the night) so please support our wonderful school by purchasing tickets and sharing the event with your family, friends and neighbours – the more tickets our school sells, the more money we will raise for our school.

It promises to be a fun night.


Tickets on sale at: & make sure you purchase your tix via the Galilee Primary – D.O.G.S ticket tab!!
