Welcome back to term 4.
A big welcome back to Mrs Gathercole coming back from Maternity leave.
It will be a busy term with lots of different things happening.

Monday - Pupil Free Day
Next Monday the 15th October the whole staff at Moyhu PS will be attending a Writing PD in Wangaratta. The aim of this Professional Development is to continue to extend and improve all our students written work. This will be a student free day for the school.
The next excursion for this month is the Italian Day at Wandiligong PS (25th October). Our children will be travelling up to Wandiligong to workshop with students from Edi Upper and Wandiligong learning all about the Italian language.
This term also see the 5/6 children attending the Somers camp in December. The F-2 children will have a sleepover here at the school as will the 5/6 students.
Time Table Change
The school is trialling a slight change in recess and lunchtime breaks. This is to prevent the children from spending as much time in the hot sun during Summer. An extra 15 minutes has been added to recess and lunchtime has been reduced by 15 minutes. There is no reduced time in the classroom.
New times are
9:00-11:00 am class time
11:00 - 11:45 am recess
11:45am - 1:15pm class time
1:15 - 2:00 pm lunchtime
2:00-3:30 pm class time
Walk to School Month
The school is being an active participant in this program. We will be walking from Moyhu some mornings, spending time at school walking around the grounds at school. Children can walk to their bus stops and count this as walking times. We are also involving the Wangaratta YMCA with a healthy eating program and two different classes run here at the school.
Just a reminder now it is Term 4 and warmer weather, all students are to wear their school bucket hats everyday for recess and lunch. If you need a new hat, please contact the school. We have them here available for purchase at $14.00 each.
