National eSmart Week

Last week was National eSmart Week. All the Year 4 to 6 classes participated in one activity to reinforce their Cyber Safety messages from Term 1. The Year Fives watched a Behind the News episode about Digital Footprints and were quite shocked about how much information is stored online about each of us without us knowing. With this understanding in mind, students were asked to think carefully about what information they should share online and with who. The completed an activity where they used a traffic light system to identify safe and unsafe online behaviours. They were then asked to explain their choices. Here are some of the samples from Room 15: 

Here is also a handy reminder about balancing time online as we approach the spring school holidays.

On Friday of Week 6, 25th August, Aubin Grove will be fundraising for the P&C and Big Week Out. Students are encouraged to come to school in their favourite team’s jersey. The jersey can be from any sport.

Please bring a gold coin donation to class.

Scitech Excursion this Wednesday

Our highly anticipated excursion to Scitech is this Wednesday. Could students please arrive at school at 8.30 for an 8.45am departure from school. Students will only need to bring their lunch in a plastic bag that is clearly marked with their name.

No school bags will be needed.


Swimming Lessons Start Tomorrow

Our swimming lessons begin tomorrow and will run for the next two weeks. Our lesson begins at 9:45 at Cockburn ARC. This means we will be leaving school at 9:20.

In order to minimise interruptions to our lessons, students have been asked to come to school with their swimming gear on, under their school shirt. When it comes time to get on the bus, students will take their school shirt off, put on their warm clothes and grab their swimming bag. Please make sure they pack underwear and dry shorts for when we return to school.

Also please make sure everything in the swimming bag: towels, thongs and googles are clearly labelled.


Class Assembly

Our class assembly is this week, Tuesday the 25th of July. It will start at approximately 1:15 in the undercover area. Please make sure your child has practised their lines over the weekend.

Those students who are playing Mr Pansini, Mrs Smith and Police officers have been asked to bring their outfits to school tomorrow (Monday).

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Swimming Lessons

Swimming lessons will take place in Week 3 and 4 of this term. A note for this was sent home last term. At this stage, we have many students who have not returned their notes or paid for the lessons. Please send these in early this week so we can take them to Cockburn ARC on Wednesday. If you have misplaced the swimming note, you can get a new one from the front office.

School Photos

Class Photos are tomorrow, Wednesday the 19th of July. Students will need to be wearing their purple shirts and school shorts/skorts.

The photography company have also asked that students wear purple shirts on Friday as sibling photos will occur across the next three days.

If you wish to purchase photos, students can bring along their personalised envelope which was sent home last term.

Our Upcoming Class Assembly

As you would be aware, our class assembly will be on Tuesday the 25th of July at 1:15. All students have a speaking role and were given the script at the end of last term. Please make sure they have read through and practised their lines before school returns on Monday. We only have a short time to rehearse in the undercover area before our assembly due to school photos. Therefore, it is important that the students know their lines. If they have misplaced their script, I have placed a digital copy on our Google Classroom which they can access.

They should each know what they need to wear on the day. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions:

See you all there!

Pyjama Day

This WEDNESDAY, the 21st of June, we are going to celebrate the Winter Solstice! The winter solstice is the day of the year that has the least daylight hours and usually occurs on the 21st June.

On this day, there will be no heaters and we will also have an hour without power.

To help us stay warm, students can wear their pyjamas to school!
Please keep in mind –
1. Students must wear school shoes.
2. Students hair must be tied up if shoulder length or longer.
3. Students must be able to put their hat on at recess and lunch.
4. The clothing must cover shoulders and be no shorter in length than the school uniform.

If they do not want to wear their pyjamas, they can wear normal school uniform.
