As a part of our planning for classes in 2021, we are asking that parents discuss with their children two students that they feel they would like in their class for 2021. We ask that you focus on which students will be best for both the learning and well-being of your child. We value your opinion and feedback and will endeavour to have at least one of your child's nominated children in their class. There are many things that need to be taken into consideration when organising classes and the conversation you have with your child and the resulting suggestions will help support our decision making. Please trust that our staff know your children and how they learn. Any decsion made about classes for 2021 will be made with all children's learning and wellbeing at the forefront.

Crazy Sock Day
26 Oct 2020
This Friday, the 31st of October we are holding a Crazy Sock Day as a part of our Socktober fundraising for Catholic Mission and to help change the lives of children in need all around the world.
On the day, children can choose to wear socks of different colours, patterns or any other crazy idea. This is to raise awareness for this important cause and also to have FUN!! Each class will also be holding a goal kicking competion on the day, using balls created this week from recycled materials. To make these balls we still need students to bring in old (clean) clothes, old (clean) socks, string, plastic bags, styrofoam and bubble wrap.
We also ask families to register their children at:
This is where children can ask family and friends for donations to support their goal kicking efforts and raise money for those in need. Thank you to the 38 children who have registered so far. Together they have raised $1,191!!! What a great effort and what a difference this will make for children around the world.
Let’s sock it to poverty!

Have you registered yet?
This year our school is participating in Socktober to kick some goals for kids in need around the world.
To help them join in the fun and make a difference, please register your child as a Socktober Star today, and start them on their mission journey.
This year our school is participating in Socktober. We invite our students to connect with young people experiencing challenges in the developing world through education and the world game of soccer.
We’ve had a challenging year ourselves, but the benefit of this program is that it covers several core parts of our curriculum, and it has been designed to make it easy for us to deliver, and fun for you to engage with at home.
Over several weeks, we’ll take a mission journey around the world, from India to Ethiopia, Thailand to Cambodia, and discover how other cultures live, learn, work and play.
Socktober works best when every child is on board. I’d like to invite you to take a moment to register your child/ren for Socktober so they have the opportunity to join their friends and make a difference for children in need around the world. Setting up your child’s page takes only a few minutes.
Please register your child/ren at our school’s Socktober page here:
Then, simply share the page and encouraging family and friends to get behind your child/ren’s Socktober journey.
You’ll be asked to pick a fundraising goal when you register. Whatever your child/ren raises towards this goal will support the basic needs of vulnerable children around the world, such as food, clean water, healthcare, and education. You might choose from one of the targets below:
$30 can help purchase food, school uniforms and books for kindergarten children in Cambodia.
$75 can help towards purchasing sports equipment for children with disabilities in Cambodia.
$393 can go towards the costs of medical support and physiotherapy for children with disabilities in Cambodia.
On the 30th of October we will hold a Socktober Event Day, where the children will be able to kick goals for kids in need around the world.
Leading up to this day we ask that children bring in any old socks, old t-shirts, Styrofoam, plastic bags and string. These items will be used to make soccer balls for our event.
Thank you for your support and for helping your child/ren ‘sock it to poverty!’

To assist you with purchasing uniform items for your child, we are providing you with an order form and sizing guide. This will enable you to measure your child and use the sizing guide to work out what size is appropriate for your child. We ask you to send your order form to the school by Wednesday September 30, the second Wednesday of the holidays. This allows time for the order to be filled and ready for you to pick it up on Monday October 5, the first day back after the holidays. If you require any of the ordered uniform before the first day back, please let me know as I will be at school packing the orders towards the end of the holidays and I will do my best to arrange a time for you to come and collect it then.
While we are in the process of creating an online payment system for the Uniform Shop, at this stage we will need the correct money in cash when you pick up the uniform.
SeeSaw is working again. Thank you for your patience, hopefully this won't happen again. If it does or there are other technical issues, please feel free to take time away from learning and if issues continue, contact the school.

The SeeSaw website seems to have crashed this morning. Please have children take a break from SeeSaw until they have it fixed. You can still access Reading Eggs, Maths Online, Google, Study Ladder or just take some time to relax with your family. I will let you know when SeeSaw is working again. Apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.
