the parents and staff who supported them last Saturday by providing an audience for
their presentations.
Congratulations to the students for their hard work, creativity and determination over
the last 6 weeks.
Congratulations also to our girls for their participation in the recent soccer
finals. They finished second and played well, living by the values at all times.
Special thank you to Mr Seb Scanu and Mr Luc Labigang who both gave up a lot of
time after school to train the girls; what a great opportunity for our kids. Special thank
you also to our parent supporters who made the day special for our students and who
lived by the values, modelling great sporting behaviour for our girls.
Education Support Staff Month continues with our members working hard for
our kids. Do you know, or need to come in and meet our office staff? Some have been
with us for many years; Mrs Judee Caddy and Mrs Antonella Azzopardi, with Mrs

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE CONTINUED
Plenty Parklands Press
Date: August 27, 2015 Issue 26
An interesting observation from my holiday to France, Spain and Portugal was that families seemed to spend more time
together eating and socialising than I see in Australia. No matter what time of night it was children were out eating with their
family and friends and then playing; not on electronic games or phones, but with each other. We saw children playing hide and seek,
involved in imaginary play, and riding bikes, scooters and skateboards, all near their parents as they chatted with other adults. I can
only recall two occasions when we saw kids playing with electronic devices in this social setting. It really made me reflect on how we
socialise, and how some kids are really struggling to learn some of the extremely important skills we see lacking in our society; just an
observation.
Article Use of Electronic Devices, by Rich Lambert
It’s time to change our parenting behaviour around electronic devices. As parents we spend lots of time with our children, but they can
be very demanding and at times we get exhausted and just need a break. From the earliest age, electronic devices like phones and
iPads serve as fantastic baby sitters in times like these. Where traditionally the TV gave parents a solid hour or so of peace and quiet,
it’s now more frequently the tablet or phone serving this purpose. They are also great to turn to in emergencies. Having difficulty
keeping your child quiet in a waiting room or restaurant? Out comes the iPhone.
Now, I’m not saying this is terrible behaviour and it needs to stop. But the danger is that this behaviour forms a habit in our parenting
as we see electronic devices as ‘break time’, which leads to this behaviour being repeated again and again. “They make my child
quiet and engaged so I can get some things done.” For most parents, time on the iPad for child = time to yourself as a parent. We’re
seeing the cost of these children growing up without any parent guidance in their online activity.
How much shared screen time (or ‘co-viewing’) time do you spend with your kids? Spending even 5 or 10 minutes with them on
whatever activities they are doing each day can tell you so much about where they are at, both educationally and in terms of their
digital literacy. If you make frequent efforts to do this, as they get older it becomes a normal parent/child time. There’s not that sudden
suspicion or resentment when mum suddenly wants to see what I’m doing online when she’s never shown an interest before. You are
there beside them to help them intelligently navigate things like social networks and messaging apps for the first time, rather than
trying to spy on them when you eventually clue onto the fact that they have become the centre of their social life.
You will also likely see some things that will genuinely blow you away. For me it’s been amazement at my 5 year old son’s phonics
knowledge during literacy games, witnessing my 8 year old daughter’s incredible creations in Minecraft, and watching on as both of
them have moments of fantastic creativity using music or photo editing apps.
And if you don’t know your way around the online world, what better way to learn than navigating with your child, growing your
intelligence of the digital world with them from the very first time they pick it up.
It’s time that we stopped seeing electronic devices just as baby sitters that allow us to switch off from active parenting. Just like with
driving, there is a generation of children that desperately need those quality hours of supervised guidance before they navigate the
online world completely on their own.

5-4’S PERFORMANCE GONE WILD!
Eye of the Tiger
Risin’ up, back in the wild
The changes here, they are not mild,
claws, teeth and strength, changing in
every size.
Animals must, adapt to survive.
Lions are as strong as a tank,
King of the jungle with a high rank,
Strong legs for speed to track you down
in a stride,
so you better, find a place,
for you to hide.
They adapt to the environment, that’s the
way they fight.
They stand up to their challenges,
in the wild.
You might think they’re not powerful.
Just you wait till the fight.
You will find out what happens beyond.
In the WILD!!

The Three Little Pigs by Andreas, Julia, Zahli and Om
Once upon a time, there lived three little pigs. The three little pigs went to build their house.
The first little pig built his house with straw. The second little pig built his house with sticks.
The third little pig built his house with bricks. Along came a big bad wolf. He knocked on the
door of the straw house. He said “Little pig, little pig, let me in!” and the pig said “Not by the
hair of my chinny chin chin!” The wolf said “I will huff and puff and blow the house down!” He
huffed and he puffed and he blew the straw house down. The first pig ran to the second pig’s
house. The big bad wolf followed the first pig and said “Little pig, little pig, let me in!” and the
pig said “Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin!” The wolf said “I will huff and puff and blow
the house down!” The wolf huffed and puffed and blew the second house down. The straw
and the stick pigs ran to the brick house. The wolf followed them. He said “Little pig, little pig,
let me in!” and the pigs said “Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin!” The wolf said “I will huff
and puff and blow the house down!” The wolf huffed and puffed to blow down the brick house
but it didn’t break. The wolf climbed on the roof of the brick house and he fell down the chimney. The three little pigs quickly put a hot pot under the chimney. When the big bad wolf went
down the chimney, he went in the hot pot and then he jumped out of the chimney. They all lived happily ever after, except for the
wolf, whose bottom was burnt.
Jack and The Beanstalk by
Linda, Jasmyn and Shiroy
Once upon a time, there was a little boy named Jack. Jack and his mother were very poor. So one day his mother
told him to sell the cow. Instead of going to the market and selling the cow, he got magic beans from a wizard.
Jack got home and showed the beans to his mother. Jack’s mother threw the beans out of the window because
Jack had not sold the cow for money. Jack’s mum was angry. The next day, there was a giant beanstalk out of the
window. Jack climbed the beanstalk up to the top and he found a castle. In the castle there was a giant and a
singing harp and a hen that lays golden eggs. The giant wanted to eat Jack. The giant was very tired so he got the
harp to sing for him and the hen to lay golden eggs. Jack found the golden harp and hen and took them and the
harp said “help master!” and the giant said “Fe, fi, fo fum! I smell the blood of an English man!” Jack climbed
down the beanstalk and the giant chased him. He called his mother and said “Help!” His mother grabbed an axe
and chopped the beanstalk down. The giant fell hard on the ground. It was the end of the giant and he died. Jack
and his mother lived happily ever after.
Little Red Riding Hood By Amisha, Novak, Riel and Minjun
One day, mum made some vegetable soup and gave it to Little Red Riding Hood and said “take it to grandma’s
house because she is sick.” Mum said “don’t talk to the wolf.” Little Red Riding Hood was going to grandma’s
house and the wolf came along and said “pick some flowers for your grandma” and Little Red Riding Hood picked
some flowers. When Little Red Riding Hood went to grandma’s house, grandma wasn’t there and the
wolf had eaten grandma and the wolf came in. The wolf looked like grandma because he ate grandma and when grandma got eaten, the wolf got grandma’s clothes and put them on. He put her dress
and her glasses on and pretended to be grandma. He was in grandma’s bed. Little Red Riding Hood
said “what big ears you have grandma” and the wolf said “so I can hear you well.” Little Red Riding
Hood came closer and said “what big eyes you have grandma” and the wolf said “so I can see you
well.” Little Red Riding Hood said “what big teeth you have” and the wolf said “so I can eat you!” and
he jumped out of the bed and tried to catch Little Red Riding Hood. The woodcutter came. He was
cutting wood. The woodcutter got his knife and chopped the wolf’s stomach and grandma and
Little Red Riding Hood got out. They all lived happily ever after.
Goldilocks and the Three Bears By Mischa, Shivani, Alex and Tahlia
Once upon a time, Goldilocks lived with her mother in a little house. One day, Goldilocks got so
angry because she didn’t have porridge. She went into the woods to see if she could find something to eat. She found a little house. In the house, lived three bears. They had gone for a walk
while their porridge cooled down. Goldilocks went inside the house. She saw the three plates of porridge. The first
porridge was too hot and the second porridge was too cold and the third porridge was just right. She ate it all. After she ate the porridge, she went into the living room to sit on a chair. The first one was too hard and the second one was too soft. The third chair was
just right and she broke the third chair – CRASH! Goldilocks went into the bedroom and went into the first bed but it was too hard.
She said “Ouch!” She went into the second bed and it was too squishy and she said “It is too squishy!” She went into the third bed
and it was just right. She was so, so sleepy. She fell asleep in one second and she snored. The three bears came back from their
walk and the dad said “Someone ate my porridge” and then mum saw her porridge and said
“Someone ate my porridge” and the little baby bear said “Someone has eaten my porridge all
up!” The bears went to the living room. “Someone has sat in my chair” said the Father Bear.
“Someone’s been sitting in my chair” said the Momma bear. The Baby Bear said “Someone
has broken my chair!” Then they went to the bedroom. The bears looked at the beds.
“Someone has been sleeping in my bed” said Father Bear. “Someone has been sleeping in
my bed” said Momma Bear. “Someone IS sleeping in my bed” said Baby Bear “and she’s still
there!” The bears all roared at Goldilocks. She woke up in a fright then jumped out of the window into a blueberry bush. Then she ran home as fast as she could.

Year 3 Camp
On Monday 12th to Wednesday 14th of October most of the year 3 students and their teachers are heading off to camp.
Year 3 goes to Arrabri Lodge, a purpose built camp site with lots of incredible activities for our students to enjoy. These activities
include: giant swing, flying fox, ropes course and many others. We also go on a night hike (don’t forget to check your torch
batteries are new), a bush dance and a reptile show.
I’m sure that you are wondering how we are going to fit all of that excitement into 3 days. Well it is possible because we have some
highly dedicated staff and amazing parents coming along to make sure it all happens.
Thank you to all of our volunteers who offered to attend the camp this year. Schools do not have enough staff to fulfil the legal
staffing ratios on school camps and without volunteers we could not run such an important part of our curriculum. Once again we
received more volunteers than we need. This sign of support and evidence of the interdependent partnership we share is
wonderful for the school and students. However it does mean that we have to disappoint some volunteers.
The parents attending this year’s camp will be Nicole Dindevski (3-17), Vlato Miseski (3-17), Esref Avda (3-18), Kathleen Apap (319) and John Kotronis (3-20).
Our parent volunteers were selected in accordance with the PPPS Camp and Excursion Policy.
Drew Norgate and Susan Skrlj (Year 3 Camp Coordinators)
In Week 8 we will be participating in the following activities to
celebrate Literacy and Numeracy Week
Poem in your Pocket
Students will write a poem on a pocket sized piece of paper, decorate it and share it with their teachers,
friends, family during the week. Junior students will draw a picture of their favourite poem (rhyme) and
show the picture whilst reciting the rhyme.
Read for Australia
Classes will choose their favourite book and invite someone (or another class even) into their class
to listen to the story. Students will also can choose a story this week in library (or use one they have
published) to share with their families.
Maths in your Pocket
The junior school will be Investigating Patterns or Changing Shapes and will create a pocket sized
mathematical masterpiece.
Middle to upper school students will create a trihexaflexagon. What is a trihexaflexagon? Well you will just
have to wait and see! But they are fantastic!
During this week we also have...

Planning Week

Fathers Day Stall

Year 6 Market Day
It will be a fantastic week!
Make sure that you ask your children to share their Literacy
and Numeracy creations with you.

Would life really be so bad without electricity? Candlelit dinners, cooking by candlelight,
reading by candlelight, finding your keys by candlelight, falling into the toilet in the middle of
the night by candlelight … OK, electricity is pretty good. But (yes, of course there is a ‘but’)
it’s not all good. Producing energy actually uses up valuable natural resources as well as
creating greenhouse gases. These greenhouse gases are having a huge impact on our
environment (we’re talking climate change).
The big energy users in schools are lights, electronics (such as computers, laptops and
interactive whiteboards) and anything that does heating or cooling: heaters, air conditioners,
water heaters and fridges. When switched on for up to eight hours a day, five days a week,
that’s an incredible forty hours of energy zapping per item per week!
By simply switching off big energy users and stepping outside the classroom you can help save
valuable resources, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save yourself money!
PPPS is celebrating Enviro Week from Monday 7th through to Thursday 10th of September.
On WEDNESDAY 9th SEPTEMBER the Green Team are having a Green day. We are asking
everyone to come to school wearing something GREEN as a way to raise awareness about our
environment. There is NO CHARGE
for this day as it is not a fundraiser. As part of the fun,
The Green team are also holding a school wide competition and are encouraging all students
to enter. Here is what to do!
With a small group or by yourself, at school during the week we want students to design an
A4 energy saving poster that can be displayed in classrooms as a reminder to switch off
lights, heaters/ air conditioners. The Green Team students will choose a winning entry from
each year level that will be copied and put on display in each classroom for that year level.
So Go Green and look after our environment. It’s the only one we have!
For more information on how to look after our environment check out the Cool Australia

2015 Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge
The Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge is almost over. The students of PPPS have been
vigorously reading a grand total of 16511 books. Popular authors are Leigh Hobbs who wrote the Old Tom series, and Pamela
Allen writer of the Mr McGee books.
The Challenge is open to all Victorian children in recognition of the importance of reading for
literacy development. It is not a competition; but a personal challenge for children to read a set number of books over the best
part of a year.
Children from Prep to Year 2 are encouraged to read or ‘experience’ 30 books with their parents and teachers. Children from
Year 3 to Year 6 are challenged to read 15 books themselves.
With only one week to go, students in years Prep to 2 have already met the challenge, as have many students from years 3 to 6.
Please ask your child about their Challenge results and encourage them to read and record more books if they need to.
All children who meet the Challenge will receive a certificate of achievement signed by the
Victorian Premier. For students who have chosen to have their name included on the online Honour Roll, the Honour Roll will
become live after September 14 at www.education.vic.gov.au/prc

PARENTS LEAVING THEIR CHILD’S BELONGINGS AT THE OFFICE
If a child forgets to bring their lunch, jacket, hat etc., and the parent/carer brings it to the school office after
9am, the following process has been put in place so that there is as little disruption as possible.

Make sure your child’s name and home group is clearly marked on the item.

When the item arrives at the school, an email is sent to the relevant teacher. Each teacher checks
their email, if possible, at morning recess and lunchtime before going to the staffroom or doing yard
duty. If this process has hiccups eg. casual relief teachers (CRTs), the office will ensure the item
gets to the child.
We are unable to guarantee a child will get their play lunch in time, but we can guarantee they will get their
lunch.
WOOLWORTHS EARN & LEARN 2015
Woolworths Earn & Learn is back and it is now easier than ever to earn valuable resources for our
school. Last year more than 14,500 schools and Early Learning Centres benefited from the program,
boosting supplies in classrooms, libraries, music rooms, gymnasiums and science labs.
It's simple to participate. From Wednesday 15th July to Tuesday 8th September 2015, when you
shop at Woolworths you can collect Woolworths Earn & Learn Stickers from the checkout operator or
and place them on a Woolworths Earn & Learn Sticker Sheet. There will be one Woolworths
Earn & Learn Sticker for every $10 spent (excluding liquor, tobacco, and gift cards). Once completed, simply place the Sticker Sheet
in the Collection Box, either at the school office or at your local Woolworths.
Thank you for your support.
