The staff at Scotsburn would like to welcome back all of our families and extend a big welcome to our new families. We hope that you all had a wonderful break and enjoyed the glorious weather. We would also like to thank the many families who watered the gardens and looked after the animals over the break. It is greatly appreciated.
Welcome to our new students
We would like to welcome Harry Brown & Jack Smith to the Scotsburn campus. Both of these boys are in Grade 1 and will be in Miss Woods class. We would also like to welcome Lucas Murphy from the Buninyong campus. Lucas is in Grade 3 with Mr O’Loughlin.

Please keep an eye out for the weekly newsletter. The Scotsburn section will have important dates and information regularly on it. Please make sure you have a read each week.
Don’t forget to use your personal login details to access compass. Notifications and updates will continue in this space now that the school app has been phased out.
A child’s biggest indicator for success out of school is how much time they spend at school. If your child is away from school please phone or email the Buninyong office first to let them know that your child will not be present.
8:45am is an ideal time to arrive at school, as the classrooms and playground are not supervised until then. All children should be ready to start the day at 9am. If your child is absent on any given day, please ensure that you contact the Buninyong Primary School office to inform them.
Debating has been a huge part of the Scotsburn campus and a wonderful opportunity for students to develop their public speaking skills. With Sharon Davis and Natasha Adam now not at the campus, we are searching for a couple of parents who can assist Ms Geddes in this important and valuable opportunity. Please see Ms Geddes if you would like to become involved.
Our first rotation for Term 2 will be on the (20th April). Our groups will be doing the following:
