Year 4 Camps
With the conclusion of our two Year 4 camps, the primary camping season is over.  Year 4 had a wonderful time over the past two weeks, visiting the Maritime Museum, sleeping at school (including a few hardy souls camping on the oval), and enjoying a variety of activities with Ranger Jamie back at school.  A huge thank you to the parents who volunteered to make these camps possible – they endured 6:30 am starts at school, a long excursion, cooking, cleaning and sleeping on rather uncomfortable surfaces.  The teachers also undertook all of these activities, so well done to them too!  Parents, please know how much we appreciate your help and support.

Soccer and Netball Gala Day
Due to the wet weather, our Soccer and Netball Gala Day was postponed.  Note the new date, which is Monday 29th July, which is the first day of next term.  A new note has already been sent home.

Prep to Year 6 reports come home on Monday 1st July.  We hope these provide helpful information for students and their families.  If you have an immediate question regarding your child’s report, please contact their teacher either directly, or through the Primary Office.  The next round of K-6 Parent/Teacher Interviews will be held in Week 7 of Term 3.  Prep Interviews are in Week 4 of Term 3.  Every effort has gone into ensuring accuracy in the reports, however, we are still human.  If you think an error has been made (typo or otherwise) please contact the Primary Office so we can promptly address this for you.

There is always a little confusion over the mid-year holidays, so allow me to clarify.  We finish Term 2 the same time as state schools, which is Friday 5th July.  However, the holiday break is three weeks, which means students return on Monday 29th July.  Staff return a week prior to this, for training and preparation.

1 So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, 2 complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.  Philippians 2:1-2 (The book which staff are studying during our training week)

In His Service,
Robert Burgess
