As part of the 60th celebrations for the Heytesbury Settlement last weekend we opened our school to visitors sharing some wonderful memorabilia from our school's history. I would like to thank our student tour guides who represented our school so well during the afternoon.
This week it was the float and race test for the many boats and ships created as part of the inquiry into pirates. The upper grades launched all types of floating wonders and were justifiably pleased with the final results.
Each year schools are required to develop plans and actions around safety on site in an emergency. We regularly conduct drills and practice scenarios with our students so that they are aware of what might happen if we were ever faced with an emergency situation. Emergency Management Plan 2019-2020
The year 2 sleepover is happening on Friday 13th December. All year two students will remain at school at the end of the day and take part in many wonderful events including: 'The Great Race Challenge,' Christmas lights walk and much more.
Toward the end of term many of our bus drivers like to provide the students with a little Christmas treat, usually a bus party. Bus 1 will be holding theirs on Monday 9th and will be 25 mins late home. If you do not want your child to be late please come into school to collect at 3:15.
Our 2020 prep families have been involved in a very thorough transition program during the last two terms. Our final transition event occurs on Tuesday 10th Dec, at 1pm, with the 2020 preps attending school for the afternoon. All our students will be working in their 2020 grades on this afternoon.
Our wonderful Darcy, who supports our school so generously each year, is taking part in an emergency services fundraiser. We would like to help, so the JSC have decided to run a walkathon.
CLAIMING THE DATE...Our school will this year be supporting "Andrea's Country Christmas Night" which will be held at the Simpson Rec Reserve on Tuesday 17th Dec. Come along and hear our great carols. The night starts at 6:30 with music kicking off from 7:15.
Congratulations to Byron, Ryan, Anna and Geordie who have earned C.A.R.E. awards this week. Now that we have completed the teaching cycle for these behaviours awards were given for behaviours that matched what was needed within each grade. Well Done.
Our Christmas Raffle this year is going towards the funding of air-conditioning for our North facing classrooms. Needless to say we need to sell a lot of tickets. The cake will be drawn on Tuesday 17th, at Country Carols Night. Tickets available in the front foyer.
