Hi all,

Just wanted to extend another MASSIVE and heart felt thank you for all your support this last 6 months of the year. I honestly could not have asked for a better group of students, it has been a blessing being in Room 25! We have shared lots of fun times and I look forward to seeing how they go next year, in Year 4!

I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year! May your holidays be filled with family, friends and good times, both relaxing and adventurous!!

Thank you again for your beautiful and thoughtful gift and comments. Feeling very loved and spoilt.

Warm wishes,


Week 10 – Last Week Of School

Dear Parents,

The last week of Term 4 and the school year has come upon us! We have an action filled last 4 days of school to go.

On Monday we have Transition day, where all students will be given the opportunity to meet their new teacher and classroom for next year. This will take place in the afternoon and students will return to their original classes before the end of the day.

On Tuesday students will celebrate the end of the year with a class party, starting at about 12:20pm with lunch in the classroom and then lots of fun activities to finish the day. Later that day, students will return to class at 5pm to get ready to walk down to the school oval for our Christmas Concert, which will start at 5:30pm. Just a reminder that students will need to wear black pants/shorts with a coloured t-shirt on the night.

Wednesday and Thursday will be filled with lots of Christmas craft, board games and activities to end the week. If you have a board game that you would like to bring in for the last week, please feel free to bring it to class.

I am looking forward to finishing the term with a real celebration! It has been an absolute pleasure teaching each of the wonderful students in my class for this last 6 months! I wish each of you and your families a fantastic and safe Summer holiday break. All the best for next year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, in advance!! 🙂

Warm wishes,

Class Party – Year 3’s

Dear Families,
On Tuesday the 12th of December the Year 3’s will be having a class party to celebrate our year together. 
We have decided, this year, for girls to bring in a sweet plate and for boys to bring in a savoury plate of food.  
As we do not have ready access to a fridge or oven, please do not bring anything that needs to be refrigerated or heated up.  If you are bringing a hot food item, please bring it to the class by 12pm.
On this day you will not need to provide lunch for your child (only recess as usual).
I hope that your child can participate and am looking forward to celebrating a wonderful year in our classroom.
Thank you for your support.

Week 7 Reminders

Hi all,

Just another reminder that our assembly is next week, Tuesday at 1:15pm. Students have been practising hard to learn their speaking and acting parts for the big day. Costumes will need to be organised this weekend and, if possible, brought to school on Monday next week so that they can change in to them after Recess on Tuesday. With costumes, students can wear everyday casual clothes, unless they specifically let you know that they need to dress up in character for their act.

Homework is due at the end of this week, Friday. There are no more opportunities for students to borrow books from the library from now until the end of term. The library is taking this last few weeks to collect all borrowed books before the end of term approaches, ready for next year.

Can’t believe there is only 3 weeks to go after this week. The term is flying by and nearing an end. Many thanks in advance for the help and assistance so far. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further queries or questions.

Warm wishes,


End of Year Concert – Reminder


Thursday, 16th November 2017

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

The End of Year Concert is fast approaching and students have been singing and dancing up a storm so that they can put on a fantastic show. This year the concert will be held on 12th December and is themed I Feel Good. The concert will commence at 5.30pm and students should be in their classrooms by 5pm. All Year 3 students will be performing “Firework” by Katy Perry.

To make the performance extra special we would like the students to dress in black shorts with a shirt that is one of the colours of the rainbow – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo or violet.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me or your child’s teacher.

Thank you

Enrolment – 2018

Dear parents / carers,

Just a quick message from Frank Pansini regarding enrolment for 2018.

If you are not returning to Aubin Grove next year, can I ask that you please let me, or the Front Office, know asap. Our school expects a drop in student enrolments for next year, owing to the establishment of Honeywood PS, so in order to plan for the number of teachers and classrooms required, it is essential that we have the most accurate information possible. 

Thank you in anticipation.
