What a term! We celebrated Mother's Day, Education Week, Reconciliation Week and hosted an Election Market, STEM night, as well as a Trivia Night! No wonder we are all exhausted! Our teachers have done an amazing job in the classrooms this term as well, and I thank each teacher for their dedication and commitment to student learning at MPS.
Reports - Compass
Semester 1 Reports can be accessed via Compass from 4pm today (Thursday). Please share this report with your child and celebrate all the learning that has taken place over the past two terms. Parent/Teacher/3-way conferences will take place on Tuesday 10th September throughout the day. If you wish to discuss your child's progress before this date, please make an appointment to see your child's class teacher.

WOW! What a huge success the 'roaring 20s' Trivia Night was, raising over $8,500 for Monty PS. This night would not have been possible without the ever so talented Sarah and Manny (Mr & Mrs Kechayas); and the behind the scenes work from Suzi, Frances and the Parents & Friends committee members. Thank you to everyone who donated prizes, wrapped hampers, set up/packed up the Hall, made significant contributions ($$$), dressed up and had FUN! All money raised supports our new playground works - so thank you! A great community effort!
From Kirsty Leahy- School Council President
School Council met on Tuesday night, and as is often the case I left the meeting feeling incredibly proud and grateful for what so many people across all parts of the school do for this community. So I thought I’d write this newsletter item as a list of what I am feeling grateful for (Hugh van Cuylenburg of The Resilience Project style).
I am grateful for:
P&F led by Suzi and Frances who worked together on the Trivia Night to raise almost $9000 for playground works
The community culture of support and absolute fun we experienced at the Trivia Night
Teachers who supported the Trivia Night and came at the end of a busy week and Term prepared to have fun alongside the parents - they are a dedicated bunch!
Extra special performing teachers (Sarah and Manny Kechayas) who put themselves out there so that we could all have a fun night
Teachers who spend all day working to get the best out of our children, and then attend meetings to either teach other teachers or learn more themselves
School council members who liaise with community groups, politicians, businesses and other organisations on behalf of the school to procure funding and materials to make projects like the playground upgrades happen
Community members who will give time over the holidays to help with works at the school
Finally, our Principal and Assistant Principal who manage all of this and more
Monty Primary is such a unique and special community to be part of. We have so much to be grateful for and I encourage you all to express your thanks in whatever way you can.
On behalf of the school council I wish you all a relaxing and safe holiday.
School Council President
