You are able to ‘like’ and comment on their posts as well. This is a great way to stay connected to what is happening in class and give feedback to your child about their learning. If you are not already connected please ask your child’s teacher about getting a QR code.

Money at school

It has come to our attention that some students are bringing money to school to purchase items from other students in the playground. This has caused some upset with students experiencing ‘buyers remorse’. Resolving these disputes takes time away from teaching and learning. With the exception of Friday Freeze, there is little reason for student to bring money to school. Your support and vigilance regarding this matter is appreciated.

Pokemon Cards

Pokemon cards are now banned from school everyday except for Wednesday at lunchtime due to the amount of time it is taking to manage Pokemon trading and behaviour of children in the Pokemon clubs.  Mrs Schumacher has made this decision in response to the inappropriate behaviour from some children and complaints from parents.  Ilse Swanepoel will supervise the Pokemon Club, outside Room 3 and 4 at lunchtime on Wednesdays.  Cards will be confiscated by teachers if they are here at school on other days.  Thanks in anticipation of your support.  


Friday Freeze

Friday Freeze has been organised for every Friday of term 1 by head boy Jack and head girl Jaymee.  The school leaders will be selling ice blocks at the shack every Friday, after lunch eating, for $2.  They have chosen ‘Juicies’ as the ice block of choice.  Please continue to support the efforts and organisation of our young leaders.  Last Friday was a HUGE success with over 300 ice blocks being sold.  Please note that the juniors purchased their ice blocks earlier than the rest of the school, we will continue with this organisation over the next few weeks.
