New Administration Assistant
I am pleased to announce that Mrs Tracey Young has accepted the position of Administration Assistant to replace Mrs Elle Morris. Mrs Young had her first day with us on Thursday this week, and will spend a few more days this term, working alongside Mrs Morris to learn the procedures.

Earn & Learn
Please send to school any stickers you may still have hanging around, by next Tuesday 25 June. We look forward to letting you know the resources that we select for our school.

Multi Sports Day
We had a great day at PLC Croydon on Wednesday for the Multi Sports Day. The students were grouped with students from other schools and rotated around six of ten sport activities. These included basketball, gymnastics, AFL, rugby, cricket, golf, T-ball and hockey. Specialists from each sport led the activities with the assistance of students from PLC. The students participated well and demonstrated good sportsmanship and effort. A sausage sandwich, fruit and drink was provided for lunch which was appreciated by the students.

As the weather has become colder, particularly in the mornings, I have noticed some non-uniform items of clothing being worn by a couple of the students. There is no problem for students to wear undergarments which cannot be seen, for extra warmth. A long sleeved, white undershirt is an example of what is acceptable. If you would like your child to wear an extra jacket, then I would suggest, that they can wear the sports jacket on non-sport days as an extra layer. The parent handbook provides further information about uniform requirements.

Today is the last day to put in your order. The pies are delicious and I highly recommend them to you. Don’t forget to let Elle in our office know if you have made an order, so that we can ensure they get home.
