Hope you all had another wonderful weekend!
On Wednesday 21st June 2017 we are going to celebrate the Winter Solstice by wearing our pyjamas to school. Winter Solstice is the shortest day and longest night of the year and this year it occurs this Wednesday. On this day, we will also be having an “hour without power,” to remind students of the importance of power and how it impacts our lives.
To celebrate this day we ask that students:
- Wear their pyjamas (if they would like to participate)
- Wear their school shoes
- Tie up their hair if shoulder length or longer
- Still wear their hat as normal at recess and lunch
- Wear clothing that covers their shoulders and be no shorter in length than the school uniform (the forecast is rain so an extra jacket might be needed too)
We look forward to seeing lots of cosy pyjamas on Wednesday. Also, apologies for the late notice. However it was only decided late last week by the Environmental Committee and then there was confusion over which day it will be held for our school.
I’ll be away again tomorrow for another doctors appointment. However, Tracey Lucas will be in for me again. This will be the last day i’ll be away for this term.
Lastly, next week the school will be celebrating NAIDOC Week and the children will get to enjoy an incursion next Thursday 29th June to help celebrate. Further details will be sent closer to the date.
Have an awesome week!
