End of Year Concert


Monday, 20th 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 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






Sports Carnival Re-Schedule

Good evening everyone!

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. The sports carnival has been re-scheduled to Friday the 3rd of November due to the poor weather on Wednesday afternoon. Here is an updated time schedule of how the day will run.

Progress Folders

Progress folders went home today.

Please take the time to look through these and comment and sign the cover page. These are then DUE BACK BY THE END OF NEXT WEEK (Week 4, 3/11/17). Please make every effort to have these returned BEFORE or ON this date, so we are able to organise transition folders.

Thank you in advance!

The Day the Crayons Quit Assembly


What a fantastic performance by all students. We all managed to overcome our nerves and performed a funny re-enactment of The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt. I am so incredible proud of each and every one of the students.

Thank you so much to the parents who helped out with the costumes and painting our fantastic Crayola box. To all the parents who came and supported us, thank you! Not only did I have so much fun, but I think every one else did as well.

You can watch the video of the performance below.

Well done to the unique crayons in room 39!


Week 3 and assembly update

We have a short but very busy week this week!
Can I please have all remaining home work folders in on Monday so our lovely parent helpers can change the home readers books.

Our assembly is this Tuesday the 24th of October. Can I ask that all students bring in their black pants and short sleeved coloured top in a bag Tuesday morning. The students will change into their costume before lunch. If you would like to send your childs’ costume in tomorrow morning, I can store them safely in my storeroom.

Week 3 schedule:

Monday – Music and new reading books will be coming home.
Tuesday – OUR CLASS ASSEMBLY and Early Close.
Wednesday – Sports Carnival (11.25am-2.45pm)
Thursday – All homework due.
                         Progress Folders will be coming home.

Friday – No school – Staff in school development day.

*If you are not returning to AGPS in 2018 you can keep your progress folder (please email me if this is you so I know not to chase you up!). Otherwise I need all folders back by Week 5 please.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

R U OK Day

Thank you to every one who wore yellow yesterday to support R U OK? Day. What a wonderful day it was! In room 39, we talked about mental health and making sure the people around us are feeling ok. We also talked about things that support us and make us happy when we are feeling down. The amazing artist Elle let us paint our art works onto a big canvas which will eventually be displayed around the school. At the end of the day, we used the app Smiling Minds to bring wellness & mindfulness into our classroom (some of us even fell asleep).

Here are some photos from the day.

R U OK Day

This Friday the 13th of October is R U OK? Day which is dedicated to remind people to ask family, friends and colleagues the question, “R U OK?” in a meaningful way, because connecting regularly and meaningfully is one thing everyone can do to make a difference to anyone who might be struggling.

In celebration, at Aubin Grove, we ask that the students come dressed in anything yellow on Friday. The children will also be visited by an artist who will discuss the importance behind the celebration.
