What a great start to the term we have had. The weather has been delightful, although the mornings have been a bit chilly, and our staff and students have jumped straight back into wonderful learning in our classrooms.
Our school recognised ANZAC Day with a memorable service last week, led by our senior students. Thank you to Mrs Scott for her coordination, and to ex-student Tyler, who played the Last Post and Reveille. Thank you also to our P&C who organised the floral tributes. Our student leaders and senior Student Representative Council also attended the Penrith ANZAC Service held at the Paceway this week.
Over 40 students from our school participated in the district cross country carnival last Friday, with two students making it through to the regional competition. Congratulations to all our students who participated and to those who were successful at placing in their age race.
COVID Safety and School Operations
Don’t forget to scan the QR code when entering our school office – no matter for how brief your visit is! This is a requirement for all Department schools.
Very soon, we will be welcoming parents to our regular school assemblies. COVID restrictions, however, means that we will need to limit the number of visitors to our hall. There will be a limit of one visitor per child for the class that is presenting at the assembly only. This will limit our visitors to 32. Please keep an eye out for messages on SkoolBag to let you know when your child’s class is presenting.
All visitors to our assemblies are required to scan in using the QR code and to leave their details on the sign-on sheet, as per Department requirements.
Before and After School Care
Does your child need before and after school care? The department is undertaking an important survey to identify parent demand in our school for before and after school care.
Please complete the short survey below to help us understand your family’s needs for out of school hours care. The survey has only 4 questions and should take no more than two minutes to complete.
Please complete the survey via the following website link: https://surveys.education.nsw.gov.au/s3/OSHCParentsSurvey.
The survey will be open until 24th May 2021.
Our next P&C meeting will be held in the library on Tuesday 4th May from 7pm. We do hope you can join us!
Catch-up Photo Day
Our catch-up photo day will be held on Thursday this week, for any students who were absent on our photo day last term.
Have a wonderful week!
