Newsletter - 2017 Term 3 Week 7

Smoothie Fundraiser
The final opportunity to purchase a Smoothie will be 15 September. This has been a fantastic activity for the students in Mr Francis’ class. They have participated very well with opportunities to develop work related skills. They have also raised significant funds for our Compassion sponsor child.

New Zealand trip
Last week I visited three schools in New Zealand. We were warmly welcomed by the staff and had very profitable discussions, including the sharing of resources, effective teaching and learning strategies and administrative processes.

Multi Sports Day
Next week on the Thursday 14 September, we will be attending the Multi Sports Day at Shore Northbridge Playing Fields. Activities will include a variety of fun sports activities adapted to suit the students, for example Tennis, Basketball, Netball, Bocce, Softball, Goal Ball, Rugby, Cricket, Athletics and other team activities. We have had a wonderful time in previous years and are looking forward to this opportunity to meet new people and participate in a variety of sports. Please remember to send your child to school with a hat, morning tea and water.
