Term 3 2018




This term has started well, with the grade 3 students attending their first camp at Adanac ( Yarra Junction). The students and staff thoroughly enjoyed their time together working on outdoor activities.


Our school team, led by Mrs Chris Gilligan, will be competing in the regional finals at the end of July. We wish our students good luck and we are very proud of you for making the regional finals.


There will be a parent information meeting on Tuesday the 24th of July, to talk about their camp at Arrabri  Lodge ( (Warburton) from Wednesday the 12th to Friday the 14th of August.


Our year 6  students are very excited about the upcoming trips on the 3rd and 10th of August. They will have the opportunity to ski or snowboard.


We are fortunate to have the van visit the school for two weeks, please check on Compass or phone the school for more information.


Coming up in August - National Science week 'Game Changers and Change makers'; Book Week ' Find your Treasure' and literacy and numeracy week. 


Another exciting 'first time' will be the swimming program  for our Foundation students. We encourage all parents to support this initiative, as learning to swim well is a life survival skill.


There  are many year level  excursions planned and whole school events  to be organised by the SRC . Please read our newsletters for dates and specific information, as well as checking Compass.


Term 3  finishes on Friday 21st September. Please note that we have a 2.30 finishing time.

Term 4 commences on Monday 8th October.

Science news - Hopping Mice

Hopping Mice are unique animals. You don't find them in the average pet shop and they don't behave much like normal mice at all. They like to dig and they can hop just like kangaroos!Their native habitat is the sandy desert of Western Australia, the Northern Territory and South Australia and they can survive with very little water for long periods of time.
