Around the Primary

Dear Parents,

The last couple of cooler days have been greatly appreciated by us all. The students are engaging and participating well in all aspects of school life and reaping rewards in many ways. Our fantastic staff are focused on providing and delivering a well-balanced curriculum which covers aspects of all learning areas. This in turn assists our students to develop skills, attitudes and talents which will assist them to become people of competence, conscience and compassion who are committed to God and the service of others. We also are very fortunate to have the wonderful support of parents who are always willing to become involved in the life of the school.

Thank you to Mrs Goss and Year 6G for preparing and presenting today's informative assembly item and well done to all the students who received a certificate.

Congratulations to:

On Thursday afternoon the students participated in their final swimming training session. The squad are now eagerly waiting to display their swimming skills at the IPSHA Swimming Carnival next Tuesday afternoon at Newman College.

We wish all our 2014 Swimming Squad every success in the IPSHA swimming competition.

We are proud of our super swimmer, Grace Barbour (5G) who broke the 50m Backstroke record and also the 50m Butterfly record at our Twilight Carnival last week. Congratulations Grace!

We also congratulate Grace Barbour and Claudia Clyne (both of 5G) for receiving Certificates of Excellence in their Australian Music Examinations. Grace received 2 Certificates, First and Second for 'Piano for Leisure'. Claudia received a certificate for 'Piano for Leisure' - Second. Well done Girls!

Students in all Australian schools in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 are expected to participate in the National Assessment Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN). They will be assessed in reading, writing, language conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and numeracy using common national tests. These tests are scheduled for Tuesday 13th May until Thursday 15th May. Information flyers have been distributed to Years 3 and 5.

As it is Open Day this Saturday, I hope you will find the time to come along tomorrow morning to see the fantastic facilities in the Secondary School.

Kind Regards,

Antoinette De Pinto
Head of Primary

It has been noted that some Pre-Primary children are playing on the large climbing frame before the start of the school day. Due to safety concerns, it is a school rule that all children are not permitted to use any of the play-ground equipment before or after-school.

Thank you for your co-operation on this matter.
