Final Weeks

Hard to believe that we are nearly at the end of the year! Year Three is just around the corner.

It is a very busy time and this is what we have to look forward to-

This week we will start to take work off walls to send home.

It would be useful if your child can keep a carry bag (similar to swimming bag) every day to take their things home in.

Books will go next week.

Week 10 (last week)

Monday– Transition Day- students go to new class for an hour in afternoon.

Tuesday- Christmas Concert. Students come to class at 5.00pm in costume ready to walk to oval for concert.

Wednesday– Class party. I will put a list of goodies to bring next week for you to put your name against. It will be a lunch party starting at 12.00pm.

Thursday – Last day!!


We had lots of fun building our Teepees yesterday.

The designs that the students created were used to build their teepees to reflect The Indian In The Cupboard novels we have been reading every day this term.

Their are certainly some budding engineers amongst us!



End Of Year Concert

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 2 students will be performing “Hall of Fame” by The Script.

To make the performance extra special we would like the Year Two students to dress in the following:

GIRLS – denim shorts / skirt / jeans with a white or black t-shirt and sunglasses.
BOYS – denim shorts / jeans with a white or black t-shirt and sunglasses.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me or your child’s teacher.
Thank you,
Ash Verbickis
Junior Music Teacher

Week 5

Wow! We are half way through the term already.

It has been a busy time indeed.

Faction Carnival

After a soggy start, we all had a great day last Friday at the Faction Sports Carnival.

All students behaved and performed exceptionally well.

It was very exciting for Red faction to win the day.

Science/ Technology

As part of our Science program we have been doing Forces, namely pushes and pulls.

Gravity is our strongest force.

We designed a parachute with an understanding of how gravity pulls us down and air pressure is a force that pushes up into the parachute.

We then set about to build our designs and test them from a height in the play ground.

A lot of fun was had and children then appraised the success of their designs and suggested ways to improve them.

Thank you for sending in the material that your child wanted to build with.

Salvation Army Appeal

It is our annual appeal for food for the salvation Army to distribute to needy families.

A list of appropriate food items is on our board.

Your child should be able to tell you as we have discussed the items at length.

Thank you.


Message from Frank

Dear Parents,

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.

Sports day update number 3

So sorry, I will get it right eventually!!!

Students need to be ready for an 8.40 start.  Not 8.15 as previously stated. Sorry.

If children arrive at 8.30 as usual we will be fine.


Sports day update

Further to previous faction sports day information.

It will commence at 8.15am and conclude at 12.20.

Students will be back at classrooms ready to go to normal lunch at 12.35.


Thank you.

Sports Carnival New Day

The Faction Carnival is rescheduled to this Friday, 3rd November.

It will commence at the beginning of the day. 8.45 start.

All student’s are to wear their faction shirts, hats and have their recess,  lunch and water bottles in their bags to take with them.

Apart from the start time, all is exactly as it was last Thursday when we were rained out!!!.

At least we will enjoy the sun shine on Friday.

Thank you for this.

Faction Sports Day

As you know our faction sports day is Wednesday.

Students will march to the oval at 11.15am to commence. (after recess)

They will take their bags containing their water bottle and lunches, wearing their hats.

All student’s must stay in their faction bay to eat their lunch. You are welcome to come and sit with them, however, Mr Fritchley has asked that student’s remain in the bays – as lunch is short and the children are needed straight away for events and if they are not there they could miss their moment to shine!!

The student’s are very excited and have been practising hard in preparation for this day.

Thank you.




Please ensure that you notify the school if you child is absent from school.

We must have an explanation as to why they are absent, for any reason.

You can ring the office, email, use the app, send me a note or speak to me in person.

It is a requirement that this is done and absences will need to be followed up on.

Thanks for this.
