CUPPA AND CHAT AFTERNOON
Next term we are starting a new initiative to invite parents to meet with the Principal and Deputy in an informal setting. We have arranged the Café2U van to come along and the school will provide some afternoon tea. Our Parents in Partnership meetings have a very small core of faithful attendees but this model does not seem to suit the majority of our community, so we are looking for an alternative way to connect and to allow parent voices to be heard. All welcome to come along. We have two dates set next term: Thursday 9th October (first week 4th Term) & Thursday 13th November @ 2:30pm
DISTRICT ATHLETICS DAY
Yesterday our Athletics Team competed against other schools in a carnival at Truemans Road. Well done to everyone for their participation and congratulations to the students who will go on to compete at the next level.
FATHER'S DAY BREAKFAST
We had the best turn out ever for Fathers Day. Thanks to all the dads/special friends who came along to share breakfast and games with their children. It was a beautiful morning, many thanks also to Mrs. O'Sullivan for her behind the scenes organisation and all the school staff who came to school early to cook the bacon and eggs, serve the cereal, fruit and cuppa's, organize the games and clean up before class. This annual event just gets better and better every year.
ANZAC CENTENARY GRANT - ART SHOW
Next April marks the 100th anniversary of the landing of Australian and New Zealand Troops at Anzac
Cove. This brings a further renewal to the significance of Anzac Day 2015 and as such the event will be
commemorated in special ceremonies across the country. The Anzac Centenary Committee asked for
submissions from community organizations with their ideas to mark the occasion and pay tribute to the
men and women who made those sacrifices. We put in an application to commission a work of art and
have been awarded a grant to assist bring the idea into a reality. We have commissioned Mark Basford
to complete a work which addresses the theme of:
Thanks to the Anzacs of the past we can Dream Believe and Achieve today.
In the lead up to Anzac Day 2015 our students will work towards an art show which will feature their
own tributes and reflect their dreams for the future. Any adults in our community who would be
interested in sharing their art work at this event next April will be very welcome to participate.
