REMINDERS

Our breakfast program is open from 8.10 am. If your child is coming to school at that time they MUST go in to eat breakfast. Children can't be in the yard until there is a teacher on yard duty.

The gates open at 8.25 am for children to play in the yard.


INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC AND BAND FOR 2024

Today we had some grade 5 and 6 students from Mooroopna Park, Mooroopna and Murchison come and give a performance for our grade 4 and 5s. They are part of a music program that we are going to be offering our grades 5-6 next year. It was a taster of the instruments they could learn and the band they could be part of. If your child is in Grade 4 or 5 this year, a note will go out next week with details. Please have a chat with your child We would love to have as many students participate as possible.


GRADUATION

Invitations were sent out for graduation we sent out this week. Please make sure you RSVP by Friday 1st December. You can call the office or book HERE. Currently, we need to keep guests to 4 people for each family (not including graduating students) but you can request extras and we can get back to you once we get all numbers confirmed.


ENGINEERS WITHOUT BORDERS

In STEM this week, our 3/4s were lucky enough to have the four people from Engineers Without Borders come to run a workshop on Appropriate Housing. The 3/4s became mini engineers, where they had to design and make a house that could float. Students then tested how many people their home could hold by placing marbles on them. Most of the 3/4 houses held over 30 marbles, with the winning group’s house holding 84. Thank you to Raahim, Daniel, Charlotte and Ava, who ran this fantastic workshop.
