Thank you for all of the expressions of interest for chess at St Peters. We are happy to report that it will go ahead starting on Wednesday 8 November at lunch time between 11am and 11:40am. Assuming we get the same numbers that expressed an interest, there will be 2 teachers from Sydney Chess Academy teaching. Mr Lavitt will also be there to help. A note will be sent home with those students who expressed an interest tomorrow. Payments will be made to the school.
2nd Kindy Orientation Session Our first orientation session was held last Thursday and it was a resounding success. Next years kindy students enjoyed and action packed session hosted by Ms Garner and McSpadden. With over 30 children present, they were helped by our year 6 students.

The second and final session is being held this Thursday at the same time and parents are asked to come along to a literacy and numeracy session designed to help you with supporting your child in various aspects of their literacy and numeracy leading up to school and in their first year.
Ernst and Young Care Day Ernst and Young are a large company who have a large office in Sydney. For the past few years they have been providing help to surrounding schools and charity organisations via their annual care day. Organised by the Australian Business Community Network (ABCN), the day will involve about 10-15 volunteers coming in and helping with a range of jobs around the school. Our hard working General Assistant Mr Campbell will be organising them on the day. We would like to openly thank Ernst and Young and well as ABCN for making this day happen.
As advised earlier this term, Nadia Wheatley will be coming in this week to start doing some more workshops with the students. This year artist Ken Searle will also be joining her and working with the years 1 to 6 classes. Part of this work will include a trip to Sydney Park to do some illustrating. There will be a permission note that will be sent home early next week to support this excursion.
