As mentioned in our last newsletter, Mark Chatman has been coordinating the replacement of the playground edging with the
assistance of Ben Payton and Sharon Moore. These works were completed last weekend with the additional “hands on” help of

been devoted to the completion of this project. We are very fortunate to have wonderful parents willing to help with our
We ask that parents continue to be vigilant in monitoring any coughs and colds that children may have. Whooping Cough begins
with ‘cold like’ symptoms, with the cough presenting afterwards. Please seek medical advice if you are unsure so that your
children can receive the appropriate diagnosis and treatment.
Enrolments for the Year 2015 are now being taken. If you know of any potential enrolments, please ask families to contact the
school as soon as possible.
On Monday, we sent home a letter to all families outlining the Camps Program from 2015 onwards. Camps will be offered to
children in Grades 3 /4 and 5 /6 every alternate year.
Please contact the school if you have any queries regarding the new camps schedule.
Parent Opinion Surveys
The data we collect from Parent / Staff and Student Opinion Surveys plays a very important role in the development and
implementation of our School Strategic Plan and Annual Implementation Plans. If your family received a parent opinion survey last
week, could you please return it to the office tomorrow.

ABSENCE AND ATTENDANCE
Regular attendance is important as it helps school
progress, social adjustment and the development of
dependability. However, home is the place for a sick
child. A sick child cannot work well and may pass his/her
illness onto other children and staff.
Children returning after an absence must bring a
written note. If it is known that a child will be absent for
a long period, parents are requested to discuss this with
the grade teacher and the Principal or Assistant
