We’re all going to the Zoo on Tuesday

Preps are looking forward to their Zoo Excursion on Tuesday. We have been thinking about what we might see there and what the animals could look like. We have thought of some great adjectives to describe the animals.

stripy zebras                 tall giraffes                 fast cheetahs                 dusty elephants                   swinging chimpanzees      cheeky monkeys        hairy spider           colourful bird

We hope they are not sleepy or grumpy.

Our swimming program begins with much excitement next Monday, 8th September.

All swimmers will need to bring: a swimming bag with towel, goggles and clean underwear all clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Children need to wear their bathers in the mornings under their school clothes so that we can have a quick change when we are at the pool. (It is easiest if girls’ one piece bathers are only pulled halfway up so they can still easily go to the toilet).

Please pack a warm hat or beanie to put on when leaving the pool for the trip home. Please also include an extra snack for the children to eat when they get back from the swimming pool, they are always hungry.

Any Asthma medication needs to be labelled and placed in your child’s swim bag.

Group 1 will have an early lunch each day before leaving for the pool at 12.30, returning at about 2.30 (swim time is 1.00-1.50).  Group 2 will leave for the pool at 1.30, returning at about 3.20 (swim time is 1.50-2.40).  Please do not order lunch orders on Swimming Days as we all eat early. Our Special Footy Day Lunches will be brought to the classrooms early.

We welcome any parent who would like to come and watch the swimmers as they love an audience. However, only designated helpers will be allowed in the changerooms with the children, as it becomes too chaotic and unmanageable with too many people.

If you are taking your child home from the Swimming Pool at the end of the lesson please let your child’s teacher know in advance so we can bring school bags with us. You will also need to see your child’s teacher at the pool to sign them out.

End of Term Two

What a busy term we have had. We are all looking forward to the holidays and a chance to recharge, ready for the second semester. Thankyou to all the parents who have taken the time to visit school for Parent Teacher Interviews this week.  It’s a great opportunity to catch up and celebrate the childrens’ successes. They have accomplished much in their short time at school.

A Reminder: Don’t forget the Excursion / Incursion  Levy is due by the 15th July, we have many back already.

A Looking Ahead: Our Swimming Program will take  place in the last two weeks of Third Term, notes will go home about it next term.

Have a great holiday,

Thanks for your continuing support,

The Prep Team,

Amy, Ellen, Emma, Lexie and Maree

Life Education

If you have noticed a caravan in the carpark at School you may have been wondering who was having a sleep over.   The answer is Harold. Harold is the Life Education Giraffe, who is here with the Life Ed. teacher, to teach us all about making good choices for a safe and healthy life.  We are off to the Life Education Van to visit him on Thursday or Friday. We can’t wait!
