PRINCIPAL’S REPORT

Our next Curriculum Day will be on Monday 6th November, the day before Melbourne Cup Day. Whilst the children will have a day off, the whole staff will be involved in a professional learning day at school. Our focuses for the day are Mathletics/Reading Eggspress, ‘I can’ statements and the Victorian Curriculum Capabilities. I hope many of you can take this opportunity of an extended break and enjoy some quality family time together.

I have been asked about having a ‘Suggestion Box’ outside the office for parents to leave any suggestions on improvements in and around the school. This has been put into immediate action. All suggestions are welcome, please make sure that your name and contact details are included so we can update you.

Finally, our last production of the year, the Year 2 ‘The Colour Factory’, will be open for ticket sales on Trybooking next Thursday 26th October. These tickets will only be available for the year 2 families, and available to the whole school the following week. The dates for the Colour Factory are 21st, 22nd and 23rd of November.

Enjoy your weekend

Principal
