Words Their Way sorts

Dear Parents

You may have noticed that your child did not bring a Words Their Way sort home today. We have just completed an inventory to chart our progress and today we focused on any particular sounds or patterns that your child may have had difficulty with. The new sorts will be coming home tomorrow. Any queries or questions please email me or pop in to discuss.


Last minute excursion notes!

Hi everyone

Monday is our big day out! Could you please ensure your child brings their recess in a disposable plastic bag to take on the bus as we are having recess upon our arrival. Lunches also need to be in a separate labelled plastic bag and will be kept separately to eat later. Water bottles will be taken on the bus with each child being responsible for their recess and water bottle. Hats will also need to be brought along for outdoor play.

If your child uses a ventolin inhaler that is not kept at school, please ensure this is brought on the day in a labelled plastic bag and given to the parent/teacher in charge of their group.

Parent helpers – could you please bring a small backpack with you as you may be required to carry your group’s clipboards for a time throughout the day.

Parent helpers will also need to sign in at the Admin Building when arriving at school and collect a Parent Badge. Many thanks!

The bus leaves at 9am so please be at school by 8:30am at the latest to have attendance records updated.

Excursion – Monday 30th

As you know, Room 33 is out for the day on Monday 30th October and on an excursion to the Roundhouse and Maritime Museum. Unfortunately, due to a clash of scheduled events, I have to attend a professional development session and am unable to go on the excursion. However, we are really lucky to have the lovely Mrs Matthews going with Room 33 in my place. The day promises to be interesting, educational and full of great activities for our students. We can’t wait!

Cyber Safety – Parent Info Session 25th Oct at 6:30pm

Dear Parents

Next Wednesday 25th October at 6:30pm there will be a presentation by Paul Litherland from Surf Online Safe in the Undercover Area. Paul explains the risks associated with networks and systems for children online and offers helpful tips and hints to help maintain your child’s online safety.

The session is provided FREE of charge. Coffee and tea will be provided by the P&C.



Dear Parents

If your child is absent from school, could you please notify either myself or administration at the first available opportunity. This allows teachers to update the daily roll and ensure that all students are accounted for in the classroom.

Parents are able to inform the school via the school app, an email to myself or administration, diary entry or handwritten note. Daily absences need to be entered on the electronic roll under various categories e.g. medical appointments, illness, etc. in order for accurate records to be maintained. If an absence occurs and you forget to notify me at that time, you may advise me subsequently stating the date and the reason for the absence.

Many thanks.

Parent help – excursion

Dear Parents

We will need two lovely parent helpers to assist in the supervision of Room 33 students during our forthcoming excursion to the Maritime Museum and the Roundhouse. If you would like to be one of the two parent helpers for this excursion, please send me an email to that effect. To ensure fairness, if we have more than two parents interested in attending, names will be drawn out of a hat.

Looking forward to a great day out!

Chicken Pox

Dear Parents

A student in Year 4 has been diagnosed with chickenpox.

Common symptoms of chickenpox usually include:

• Fever.

• Fatigue.

• Loss of appetite.

• A generalised rash a day or so later and starts as itchy red spots but rapidly progresses to blisters.

A person is infectious from two days prior to the onset of the rash until the blisters have all crusted into scabs, usually about five days after they appear.

Children with chickenpox must miss school until all remaining blisters have become scabs then exclusion is no longer required.

Please note that pregnant women and newborn babies should not be exposed to people with active chickenpox.

Open Night – Room 33

Dear Parents and family

Room 33 is very excited about welcoming their special guests into the classroom tonight. As part of our display, could student please bring in their laptops as some work needs to be shown on Keynote and iBooks. Once you finish viewing, you will need to take the laptop with you for security purposes. Thank you.

Those students who borrow laptops from the bank will already have the MacBooks assigned to them in the classroom ready for use.

Looking forward to seeing you all tonight.
