Planning For 2019
We have begun some early planning for 2019. To help us with this, please inform Shaun ASAP if you will not be returning to the Scotsburn campus in 2019.
Last week, Quinn and Logan experienced a wonderful opportunity to attend the Woorabinda Camp. They thoroughly enjoyed the experience and certainly gained plenty from the camp.
Scotsburn PJ Day
On Wednesday 21st November, we encourage students to come along to school dressed in their PJ’s. Please also bring along a favourite teddy. We will be having a teddy competition, a parade, fun activities and a movie in the afternoon. A fun day planned and run by our Grade 6 Leaders.
Gr 2-4 Inventions Projects
This Friday, the Gr 2-4’s will be presenting their projects. If you would like to come along to watch, presentations will be from 9.30am-11am.
Election Day BBQ Fundraiser
Our BBQ & Bake Stall Fundraiser to be held at the Buninyong Primary School Campus Gym is just around the corner (Nov 24th). Special thanks to the following who have kindly volunteered to help, but we still require a couple more. Please contact Shaun ASAP if you are available.
A big thanks also to those that have also offered to make a slice or cake (Marita Williams, Laura Chibnall, Bek Hodge, Tanya Wiggins, Kathryn Webb, Rebecca Gray, Jayne Howard, Stephanie Gietz, Naomi Moore, Belinda Hicks, Kylie Smith, Jodie Menhenett, Vicki Plier & Rach Wenzlick). Here are a few things you need to know to ensure your item can be sold:
- Please provide us with a list of ingredients used in your baked item – if we can’t display it we can’t sell it!
- Please do not cut your baked item – we will do that to try and ensure all serves are similar in size.
- Please select a recipe that is shelf stable (ie. doesn’t need to be refrigerated)
- No cream
- No uncooked eggs
- Please ensure you exercise good hygiene when baking your cake 😊
- If you send your goods in a container make sure it is sealed and named!
- Deliver your baked goods to the Scotsburn ‘Old Building’ on Friday 23rd November before 3:45pm.
Our Swimming Program commences on Monday 3rd December. Please return all swimming notes along with payment ASAP. There will be a slight change to our swimming program, due to the early finish for Parent Teacher interviews on Thursday 6th December. As such, the students won’t be swimming on the Thursday. Instead, they will have a makeup lesson at our Scotsburn ‘Fun Day’ on Thursday 20th December. We apologise for any inconvenience.
If any students have library books to return, could they please return them by Friday 1st December.
Preparing for a Bushfire
With the warmer weather approaching, preparing your family and property for a possible bushfire is crucial. You could download ‘Your Guide to Survival’ along with the template from the CFA’s website www.cfa.vic.gov.au/plan-prepare/your-guide-to-survival/ as a starting point. You may like to also attend your local fire brigade for any further safety tips.
