KINDY 2020 ENROLMENT

Applications for Kindy 2020 close this Friday 26th July. If you have not competed an application as yet or know someone who hasn’t, please complete and return to the office as soon as possible.

VACCINATIONS

As you are no doubt aware due to the media coverage, vaccination levels of school age children is at a concerning low. Whilst we endeavour to obtain immunisation data from our families at the time of enrolment, often these are not up to date if the child is of Kindy age.  We would appreciate it if you are aware that we do not hold a current copy of your child’s immunisation statement that you could please send it through to the office.

BOOK WEEK

The Children’s Book Council theme for Bookweek is ‘Reading is My Secret Power’ and we are looking forward to celebrating Bookweek in many different ways at Kapinara this year. Firstly, on Thursday 15 August, the Year 3-6 students will attend an excursion to the State Theatre to see a live theatre production of Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes and Dirty Beasts. On Thursday 12 September, we are delighted that Author & Illustrator Dr Cameron Stelzer will present workshops for the PP-Year 2 students, in the school library. And thirdly, on Friday 16 August, during the Year 4/5P assembly, we will hold a ‘Book Character Parade’. We would love students to dress up as their favourite book character and bring along the book their character is from. This is not a competition and students are encouraged to create their own imaginative costume! Happy Reading.

CHOIR

Hope you all had a lovely break! Just a friendly reminder that choir will be on tomorrow- 8am in the Music Room. Looking forward to another wonderful term of music making!
