Harmony Day

On Friday, 22nd March Year 3H will be running the assembly and our theme is Harmony Day which is the 21st March. We are encouraging all students and staff to wear orange on that day to show support for our diverse cultural community and to promote the message that everyone belongs. Thank you in anticipation of your support on the day. Wear orange on Friday, 22nd March 2019 for Harmony Day. A shirt, dress, shorts and hair ribbon that is orange would be fantastic! An orange  ribbon pinned on the chest would also be great if you do not have an orange shirt.

Scribblers Festival  – Thursday 9 May 2019

We are thrilled that the Year 3 – 6 Students will once again be attending the Scribblers Festival of Children’s Literature, to be held at Scotch College, early in Term 2. This will be an exciting ‘festival style event’ where the children will meet inspiring local, national and international writers and illustrators working in children’s literature. Students will attend three sessions with different presenters as well as experience roving artists and performers, and live art from artists in residence.  Permission notes are attached to this newsletter and on the website in the school calendar. Please complete and return to your child’s class teacher asap.
