Jeans for Genes Day
This Friday is Jeans for Genes Day. We would like to encourage all students to wear their jeans to school on this day and to also bring along a gold coin donation to support this great cause.
Marbles in a Jar
Congratulations to Freya & Pat’s Family Group who won the Marbles in a Jar competition last week. Well done!
Congratulations to Jack Plier who received his pen licence at our assembly on Monday. He has been giving his best effort during writing sessions. Fingers crossed that some more can be handed out in the coming weeks.
Last weekend, Quinn competed in a mountain bike competition at Lysterfield. Quinn had a wonderful time and enjoyed the challenge of competing against other students. She received a beautiful medal for finishing 3rd. Congratulations Quinn!
Grade 3 Camp
With Gr 3 camp coming up on the 6th September, permission notes will be coming home very soon. To help with your planning, it is expected that the camp cost will be approximately $190. Parents are also welcome to attend the parent information session from 7pm at the Buninyong campus on Thursday 2nd August.
Shopping Bags & Old Coats
Sylvia is collecting plastic shopping bags and old coats for the Soup Bus. She would be grateful if families could bring in any unwanted items to the Old Building.
Parent Opinion Surveys
You may have received via email and in the post, a letter inviting you to complete a Parent Opinion Survey for the Scotsburn campus. Please take the time to fill this in as the results provide us with constructive feedback on how the campus is progressing. If you have any questions relating to the survey, please drop in and see Shaun.
Hot Milo For Sale
This Thursday at recess, the students will be able to purchase a hot milo for $1.
The students are loving the PlayPod and our Grade 4’s are doing a wonderful job managing the equipment and area. We have received a small amount of equipment, but to ensure that we maximise this opportunity for the students, it would be appreciated if families could have a look around home for any of the items below that they no longer require. If you do have any of the following, please bring them into Miss Wood or Ms Geddes ASAP. Items could include sturdy trucks and match box cars, plastic toys (no furry or material types that will get mouldy when wet please), old clock (no glass), old computers /printers/keyboards and headphones, plastic tea set, cash register, old kitchen appliances, cable reels, pots, pans and muffin tins, oven trays, PVC pipes, plastic cups, small bikes and trikes, old fishing rods with no hook and line, white board / paint easel, balls / golf balls, small containers, old cutlery, play money (coins), milk and bread crates, milk bottle lids, doll pusher / cradle / high chair, tech decks, small tyres, sand / pool shell, telephones, old microphones / musical instruments and quoits.
