Whole School Christmas Concert

What a night!

The weather played its part and the students were magnificent. The night started off with the PCA cooking 300 chicken burgers and 400 sausages for the hungry crowd in record time. All of our PCA chipped in to ensure that the concert would start on time. All class performances were extremely well rehearsed and confidently performed.  Feedback from parents indicated that they had a great time and they loved the format of the night. Outdoor concerts are very weather dependant but looking at the excitement on the faces of the students, well worth it. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs Marget and our teachers for ensuring that the night ran smoothly and the students were prepared. I would also like to congratulate, Jessica and Mathew for the wonderful job they did hosting the night. And lastly, to the small group of teachers who choreographed the staff dance item, I would like to thank them for their efforts in pulling off such a wonderful item. I don’t believe it will result in a career change for any staff but it was certainly a heap of fun.

Boys’ State Rugby Finals

This year, our Year 6 students have achieved great results in Regional and State School Sport Victoria events. Again, our rugby boys participated in the SSV State Rugby finals in Broadmeadows last week. Superbly coached by Mr Davey, our boys performed admirably. We finished fifth overall. A great achievement for our school.

New Transition Process

Next Friday students will begin the first of three transition experiences at their new Year level. The first session will be a whole year level meeting where students will be given a taste of what to expect next year.  The next two sessions will take place in Week 11 where they will meet their new class teacher for 2019. We all handle change in different ways. It is important for parents to talk up the positives of entering a new grade level. Provide an environment where your child believes that you know that they have the confidence and ability to thrive in 2019. Classes have been formed and are in the final stages of checking by administration. Students will find out their 2019 teacher in Week 11.

Being resilient is always a focus at our school. We can survive school without our best friends by our sides.

For the Diary

Next year school begins on Thursday 31 January for all students in Years F-6. Students will proceed directly to their new classrooms.
