Please see attached our Sports Day Booklet for 2021. A friendly reminder that today is the last day to pre order the sausage sizzle and due to covid-19 restrictions no parents are allowed on site.
We are looking forward to a fantastic day!
If your child WILL NOT be attending the above overnight camp we require notification to our front office ASAP.
Some children have been saying they have changed their minds but we have not been advised officially.
We have booked and paid for these camps going by the commitment notes that were signed and will be out of pocket due to "changes of mind"
Parents please note that we have been advised by SAPSASA that due to COVID restrictions parents/families will not be able to attend the event.

You’re invited to complete the 2021 annual parent survey, which is now open.
On Monday 2 August you would have received an email or SMS from the Parent Survey Team with a unique link to participate in the survey.
If you did not receive an email or SMS with your unique survey link, please contact education.ParentSurvey@sa.gov.au and include our school’s name in your email.
The survey takes less than 10 minutes and will help us understand:
It has been coordinated centrally so that added administration workload isn't placed on the school.
Your answers will not identify you or your child. Only collated feedback will be provided to our school.
Information collected will inform school improvement planning and activities at the school.
The survey closes 5pm Sunday 29 August.

The following measures remain in place until further notice:
We will ask that all students continue to be dropped off and picked up at the school gates

We hope that your first day of the current restrictions have been relatively smooth. Teachers have been preparing for online learning, starting tomorrow. Please “check in” on Seesaw in the morning from 9am for daily learning activities and instructions.
Staff will be in contact with all families via Seesaw, email, Webex or a phone call throughout this lockdown period to support students and families.
Learning packs were sent home on Tuesday to supplement the learning programme.
If you have any questions or need support, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher, Leah or myself.
Please look after yourselves and your family throughout this lockdown period.
We have attached some ideas to support you at home with your child/ren
How you can support your child
Students need routine and certainty.
You can support your child by:
Set up a learning space at home
Every home is different. A quiet and comfortable learning space will help your child learn.
Some students may have usual places where they do their homework. This space might not be suitable to study or learn at for a long time.
The best learning space is:
Create routines and expectations
Setting up expectations and routines will help your child learn.
You can do this by:
stretching or to move around
Make the most of everyday activities in your household
There are lots of things to learn about in the home. One example is cooking. Involve your child in the process. This could include reading recipes, measuring ingredients, taste testing, or reviewing. Continue to communicate with your child by asking questions before, during and after the activity. Keep them focused and on track.
Our Camp Australia OSHC service will provide before and after school care for children of essential workers and vulnerable children as per normal school days during the lockdown.
