Term 1 week 5 Newsletter

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

This weekend is a long weekend, Labour Day, and Tuesday 8th March is a Pupil Free Day. The staff will be engaged in professional learning so please don’t send your children to school on Tuesday.

Tomorrow is our Faction Swimming Carnival at the Derby Memorial Swimming Pool. You have received a note, from Mr Kayde, detailing everything you need to know to prepare your child for the day. You are invited to join us and support your child and the school.

As you are aware mask wearing for Year 3-6 students has been mandated and is effective from today, Thursday 3rd March. Face mask wearing is an additional physical barrier to COVID-19 to protect you, your child and our community.

Thank you to all the parents who are supporting our Healthy Eating Policy and the elimination of single use plastic. I have noticed an improvement in the contents of many of our student’s lunchboxes. Please refer to the Parent Handbook for the recommended food list.

On Saturday 26th March we will be holding a Busy Bee to set up our Community Garden. It will start at 8:00am and finish at 11:00am with a sausage sizzle. I hope you can give up an hour or two to help us set up our garden.

Our Lady Queen of the Holy Rosary pray for us

Steve Dowie
