We have had so many amazing activities going on over the last few weeks. From our Prep's very first and VERY entertaining assembly, to our very first Athletics carnival, it's easy to feel thankful to be a part of such an amazing school.
A huge thanks to Ryan and our parent volunteers for organising a terrific Athletics carnival. Our students put a high level of energy and enthusiasm into each activity and we are very proud of each of their individual achievements. We can't wait to see what you all achieve nect year!
A big welcome and welcome back to our 2021 School Council Members: Ingrid Oosterhuis, Gabriel Baldessin, Theo Vouthas, Jane Courtier, Tegan Baillie, Steph Ryan, Elise McColl, Robert Powers, Chan Ruwandeniya and Michelle Commerford. We have our first official meeting this coming Monday and I'm looking forward to working with an amazing team this year.
Twilight Sports - March 25th
We are so excited to jump into a sports evening next Thursday. Hopefully we have this week's weather forecast. Students will start their school day at 12 noon before starting games at 3:30. We will run a range of activities through until 5:30. Please come along (bring the your family and friends) and join the fun. Our amazing PFA will have food available from 4pm - gourmet sausages, fruit icy poles and cake stall. If you need support with care for your children that morning, please contact the school by Friday.
Echidna Council Meeting
We had our first Student Representative Council meeting a few weeks ago with our new members; Paisley, Maxwell, Odin, Margot, Wade, and Mira. Our school captains did a great job of chairing the meeting. They're keen to be working on reducing calling out in classrooms and rubbish in the yard and are planning a Movie and PJ day on the last day of school to raise money to buy watercolour brushes for the art room.
'Come and Try' Sessions
We are so excited to have planned out the 'Come and Try' sessions for children who are looking to join STAPS in the future. All of the details can be found below. Feel free to join in and/or spread the word.
Tea Ceremony at Arthurs Creek PS
Lastly, I wanted to say a HUGE well done and thank you to Ada, Scarlett and Rahni who ventured across to Arthurs Creek PS yesterday to assist Kerry with running a tea ceremony for the school. Our students love learning Japanese and it was so nice to be able to spread that enthusiasm beyond our school.
