Dear Parents,   I hope you had an enjoyable weekend break and soaked up all that sunshine and heat! Two weeks to go here and it will be a busy but fun end to the year!  Next Year  I just wanted to say thank you for your continued support and assistance this year, it really means alot to me. I just wanted to let you know that something unexpected came up. I have been offered a job at St Mary Mackillop in Pre Primary. So instead of travelling around Australia I will be travelling to Busselton. I still plan on going travelling, however I couldn't pass up this opportunity. So you will probably still see me at your local coles haha. I am very sad to be saying goodbye to the school and your lovely cherubs but I will forever cherish this experience and appreciate how you all made it a positive one for me.   HOME READING BOOKS AND HOMEWORK  Homework and reading is now finished for the year as we need to start stocktaking home reading books. We ask if you have any reading books at home tha

Morning time Drop Off

Hello Parents  I hope you are having a lovely week so far and you are enjoying the sunshine. Just a quick message from me.  Drop off  Can I please ask you to Kiss and drop at the door and not come into the classroom. As much as I love having you, we have a few students who need to settle in and having lots of adults in the room is overwhelming for them. If you would like to chat to me send me an email and we can arrange a time to meet.  Don't Forget this Friday is our Assembly 2:15pm Put it in your diary. Cant wait to see you all there!!! Thank you for your continued support and assistance.  Warm Regards  Miss Christie

Welcome to Week 7

 Hello Lovely Parents, I hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed some of that beautiful sunshine. A few reminders for this week.  Assembly 2:15pm FRIDAY 26TH OF NOVEMEBER Please remember it is our assembly this Friday. Can you please make sure your child has a costume for Friday. If they are a shepherd they can wear something as simple as a tshirt, shorts and a tea towel from home, stars can be made out of cardboard and worn around their necks. Sheep can costumes could be as simple as ears using a headband and some cotton wool balls. I have fitted some children for costumes but I don't have enough for everyone so please make sure your child has a costume for Friday.  The children don't need to come to school in their costumes. They can wear normal sport uniform and we will get changed straight after lunch. I cannot wait to perform our assembly the children are so excited about it. I hope you all can make it :)  Character Strength Weekly Focus Dear Parents, currently at OLC
