Sports Day 2021

Dear Families,

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!


AFL MAX - Room 3, 4, 5, 19 and 22

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.

Parent Survey

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 and include our school’s name in your email.

The survey takes less than 10 minutes and will help us understand:

  • what we’re doing well
  • where we can improve
  • what’s important to you.

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.

Kind Regards,

Bob Bowden

Learning From Home - 21st July 2021

Dear Parent/Caregivers,

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:

  • creating clear routines and expectations
  • providing a safe and quiet space to work in
  • supervising them at a level appropriate to their development
  • checking in with them often to help manage and pace their work
  • monitoring how much time they spend online and balancing this with physical activity
  • checking communications from teachers and staying in contact


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:

  • a shared family space, such as a lounge room or dining room (not in their bedroom)
  • a place that can be quiet at times
  • near a strong internet or wifi signal
  • somewhere that an adult is present and monitoring the learning
  • near the items your child needs for learning, including stationery and power points
  • free from trip hazards
  • open, with natural light and without glare
  • somewhere with a comfortable chair and desk or table


Create routines and expectations

Setting up expectations and routines will help your child learn.

You can do this by:

  • maintaining normal morning and evening routines
  • structuring the day with regular mealtimes and bedtimes
  • setting up the day based on their regular schedule or timetable
  • starting and ending each day with a ‘check-in’
  • making sure they understand what’s expected of them
  • encouraging regular food and drink break times throughout the day, as well as small breaks for

   stretching or to move around

  • checking in with them throughout the day to help keep them focused and on track.


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.
