The children, staff and parents enjoyed a beautiful first day on the beach, followed by a rigorous outdoor education program on the Tuesday involving activities such as mountain bike riding, crate climbing, kitchen garden and skateboarding. Our sincerest thanks to Paul Atwell, Marissa Tennent , Scott Amberley and Jan Gielnik who came along as parent helpers. Your time and efforts to help make the camp a great experience for the children are greatly appreciated. Programs such as this would not be possible if not for the support of our parents. I would also like to acknowledge the organisation and hard work of our staff, both prior to and during the camp. Thank you to Mrs Langman, Mr Penny, Mr Payton, Mrs Davies, Mrs Warchulski and Mrs Readman for their time and commitment to this valuable extra curricular program. We trust that the children enjoyed their time at Anglesea also. Please read on for more information and photos of the camp.
We have now been using Compass for three years as our main communication platform between home and school. If you know that your child is going to be absent, please log this to notify the classroom teacher and avoid receiving an SMS message from the school. Please see inside the newsletter for instructions for your phone and computer. Once you have logged your child’s absence on Compass you do not need to phone the school, unless your child is absent for 3 or more consecutive days. If you require further assistance or you have lost your log in details please contact Jane in the office.
Parents In Buildings
We remind parents that for OH&S and compliance with Child Safe Standards, parents are asked to wait outside the buildings when collecting children at the end of the day. If you need to speak with the classroom teacher, please refrain from entering until the children have been dismissed.
We are looking forward to Disco Bingo this coming Saturday. This has been a popular event over the past two years and this year is promising to be no exception, with three rounds of bingo, games, raffles and auctions. The prize list is quite extensive and includes items such as footy memorabilia, gift vouchers from Gem Jewellers, Park Lane Jewellers, Good Guys, Titanic Restaurant,
accommodation vouchers at Ashmore Palms and Tamana Farms B & B, a Bunnings mini spit and much much, more. The big ticket item up for auction on the evening is the supply and installation of a split system worth about $3000, kindly donated by the Payne family and Sunbury Heating and Cooling. Thankyou in advance to our amazing FOSW team for their exceptional organisation of this event for our parents and community. We look forward to seeing you there for a great night out.
