As you are aware, Term 2 marks the change over to Winter Uniform in our school. Our Uniform Shop is open by appointment only. Please contact our School Office 4627 2990 to book an appointment.
During Weeks 1-3, students may wear either Summer or Winter uniform. Sports uniform with House Polo should be worn Tuesday - Thursday of Week 3 as students return to school in their House groups.
This term the children will be wearing their winter uniforms. Could we please ask you to ensure your child's blazer and hats are clearly labelled with their name. The children are also required to hang up their blazers on our coat racks.
We kindly ask all children to bring a labelled coat hanger for use in OSHC.
We would like to share with you, some of the fun the children had during our April Vacation Care. The children had a blast participating in many activities including; making their own shelters, going on a journey through wonderland, decorating cakes and meringues. As well as experiencing the wonders of art, learning how to tie dye, and having makeovers.
We are looking forward to continuing the fun during Term 2.
Our OSHC centre continues to operate as normal and is available for families to utilise if their child is attending school physically. Families will need to continue to provide their own snacks at this time.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries in this regard. It is essential that bookings are made to ensure we have sufficient staff on site to care for students.
Thanks for your assistance.
We would like to welcome the following new students who have joined our school:
Congratulations to Braxton (Prep) and his parents as they welcome his new sister Savannah into their family.
May God bless them all with good health and happiness.
Please let us know of baby news, as we would love to celebrate with you.
Give thanks for the recent Easter break and the hope and joy we have in the resurrection of Jesus.
Pray for continued wisdom as decisions are made across both our nation and school.
Pray for the concerns people have regarding the Coronavirus, that we will be filled with peace and put our trust in God.

We know that children require regular exercise to promote healthy growth and development. It is recommended that young people accumulate at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity daily. Research suggests that children who establish healthy lifestyle patterns are more likely to carry them and their benefits throughout their lives.
In the context of the current pandemic, with increased time spent indoors and organised sporting competitions currently cancelled, it’s important that we continue to purposefully create opportunities for children to engage in forms of physical activity. Regular exercise in and around your home may also positively impact your child’s emotional wellbeing and provide some helpful structure to the day.
Motivating children to take a break from a screen to exercise can pose a challenge at times. Below is a list of five (5) fun and creative physical activities that may be of benefit to your family at this time.
Hide items across the backyard or throughout the house and have kids race to find each clue. If you want to sneak even more exercise into this activity, include requirements with each clue, such as 'Do four cartwheels before moving on,' or 'Hop on one leg for 30 seconds.' This activity can be elaborate and long or short and simple.
Chalk can assist in some fun fitness activities. Draw an elaborate, detailed maze all over the driveway, then let the family run through it! This activity encourages fitness and creativity at the same time.
Play your favourite tunes, turn up the volume and get moving. Kids can compete for the best dance move, or simply make up a dance to an entire song. GoNoodle and Just Dance are popular platforms for kids to get their dail dose of dance fun.
Using lounge cushions, pots and pans, and plenty of other household objects, construct an engaging and challenging obstacle course. Kids can climb under blankets stretched between the lounge and coffee table, or they can somersault across the living room. Take this kind of play outside if you want more room to move around.
What could be better than fun exercises for kids that benefit both their bodies and your house? Pick a room or assign the whole house and see which child can clean up the most. This exercise is practical enough that you could employ a ‘clean-up race’ in your child’s room every day. Alternatively, there are generally plenty of activities to be done outdoors such as raking leaves or removing weeds. Perhaps establishing some new plants or Winter vegetables could be an ideal family project.
Exercise doesn’t have to be boring. By keeping active, even in the simplest ways, children can support their bodies and their brains for optimum learning and mental health. Keep up to date with further fitness activities from our Dean of Sport, Mrs Hornman on Seesaw. Keep on moving!
