Yet another 9 weeks has passed which means that this week is the last week of term 3. It has been yet another successful term with so many highlights and events. It has also been an amazing term of learning. The spring holiday is traditionally one with good weather and also one with a long weekend, grand finals and of course not to forget the clocks going back allowing an extra hour of sleep.
Importantly, please remember that we all start on the Monday 14 October. There is no School Development Day as there is in Term 1 to 3. We all hope you have a chance to spend some time with your children, perhaps through a holiday and we hope to see you again refreshed for the final term of 2019.
No Lunch Orders this Tuesday
There are no lunch orders this Tuesday as Botany Bites take a well earned rest. They will be taking orders again for Tuesday 15 October. Please ensure that your child has a lunch with them. There will be the healthy food peer support party on Tuesday as well.
K-2 Excursion - Botanical Gardens
This Friday K-2 will all be celebrating the end of the term with an excursion to the Botanical Gardens. If you have not already paid to provide permission to attend and your child is in K-2, please ensure that you pay online or by cash straight away.
Merit Certificates and Arch - Thursday
As this Friday will be an excursion day for K-2, we will be holding our merit certificate assembly for week 10 on Thursday. Sadly we will also be saying a big goodbye to Isaiah from the Bilbies in our time honoured fashion of a leavers arch.
St Peters Street Car Park Gate
The gate will finally be commissioned on Monday. It will be open as indicated last week and there is a loop that will automatically open the gate if closed as you leave. Please be patient.
Home Reading Awards
Home Reading is one of the most important homework activities. Research shows that regular home reading with your child will help in all learning areas of school, such as comprehension, vocabulary development, spelling and writing. To encourage home reading with K-2 students they have been keeping a reading log and receiving stickers at different milestones. When they have read 100 times at home they receive a special reading certificate. This certificate is equivalent to a bronze award. We are beginning to have some students reach this great accomplishment. At the assembly on Monday led by the Koalas these students will be receiving their reading awards:
Bilbies: Max and Isaiah
Echidnas: Danielle, Tilly, Charlie H, Evie, Ren, Inara, Mitchell, Charlie J and Nina
