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. We would also like to thank the many families who dropped in to feed the chooks over the break. It is greatly appreciated.
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.
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.
Over the break, Marita, Rod and Sam Williams built the new shed that is now the Scotsburn PlayPod. This was a wonderful gesture and greatly appreciated. It would be appreciated if families could have a look around home for any of the items below that they no longer require.

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.
A message from Judo Victoria: We are pleased to let you know that Arlen Pallett has passed a Judo practical and knowledge test called a grading at the Aspire Judo Academy. This is no easy task and requires a great deal of practice. The grade is awarded by the presentation of a coloured Judo belt. Junior Judo belts are in varying colours signifying age and expertise. Arlen has been awarded a Green belt.
Please see attached flier for any other student interested in trying out Judo.
Congratulations Pat & Will
Last semester, Pat and Will completed the Quick Smart Maths Intervention Program. This requires great effort and commitment. A big well done to the boys and also Raquel who has guided them through the program.
Over the break, Bruce, who drives one of our school buses was awarded the ‘Favourite Bus Driver’ award from across Ballarat. As we know, he is a great guy who makes all of the students feel very safe and comfortable on the bus. Congratulations Bruce!
We would again like to thank Deanna Bantick who volunteered her time over the holiday break to give our Old Building an extra good clean. It looks amazing! Thanks Deanna.
