MESSAGES

  • Class Dojo - We are really enjoying our new reward system in class! We have chosen our own little monster icons who look after our points each week. The children earn behaviour points for making fantastic choices, helping their friends and more.
  • Reminder: We are very excited about our trip next week! We will be exploring the outside environment to learn more about plants and how things grow. Because the trip is outside, your children should wear trainers instead of school shoes on this day. They should also remember to bring their snacks, water bottles and school bags as normal so that they can take them with us to the trip. We will leave school in the morning so please ensure that you arrive on time to school on the day of your trip.
  • International week: On Thursday 29 March at 9:00am the International Parade will take place in the Primary front playground. Students are invited to wear clothing that represents their cultural heritage. If you are able, please come dressed in your national costume and cheer on. Our Chatterbox coffee shop will be open for parents to enjoy a beverage or snack.
