Did someone say Pyjama party?💤💤 One sleep until kindergarten celebrate their learning about the letter and sound 'p' with a perfect pyjama party!! Don't forget shoes, hat and a dressing gown (or jumper) if it's cool. Picnic food to be delivered to the KM room before school please 😊 🌙✨🍿
What a perfect day for a pyjama party! Kindergarten had a wonderful day learning about the letter p, making peacock craft, using the parachute and writing about their day. 👏🏼 A massive thank you to the parents and care givers who sent in food to share at our picnic. Your generosity was much appreciated. We have some snacks to share tomorrow after lunch as well. ❤️ I wonder how many kinder friends are in their PJ's and ready for bed? I know some teachers are! 💤💤💤
⭐️ KINDER FAMILIES⭐️ Please be advised there is no Kindergarten Mass tomorrow as was previously stated in the newsletter. Since being published, it has come to our attention that neither Fr Peter or Fr Paul are available for school Masses until at least the end of August. Therefore, there will be no Kindergarten/Parish Mass on Tuesday 24/5. We will keep you posted of the new date. Thank you.
A reminder for all Kinder and Year 1 students to bring a hat for tomorrow's NAtional Simultaneous StoryTime!! Be a pirate, racing car driver, cowgirl or keep your ears warm and wear a beanie!!

I love nothing more than seeing little brains deep at work! Year 4 working in teams during Library today. This is the first phase of their research on Australian Native animals- brainstorming in teams allows them to connect & wonder with the topic.

A huge thank you to the P&F for funding the purchase of 5 new iPads for the Library. This will be a great work station for all years K-6. It provides opportunity to assist students who need extra assistance with learning right through to offering extension to others who are working at a higher level. An amazing asset for our students.
Due to inclement weather and lots of sick children, the K/1 athletics carnival has been postponed until next Tuesday 28/6. Stay warm everyone and get well!
