School Carols Night- Thursday 4 December

Musicians required! As part of our Christmas Concert, classes will be presenting an item. We will also have the Senior Choir lead us in some traditional carols for the whole school community to join in. As we have many talented, musical parents within the school community, we are seeking expressions of interest from any parents who may like to play their instrument in a small band to accompany the choir in the carol singing. If you are interested in joining in please let Ms Draper know by 15 November.

SCHOOL DISCO

Tickets for this Friday's disco have been sent home today with your eldest child. If you do not receive your tickets today, they will be sent home either tomorrow (Thursday) or Friday.

Thank you to those who volunteered to chaperone on the night. The response was overwhelming. Tickets for chaperones will come home with your children.

Tea and coffee will be available in the library for those who would like to stay at school.

PARENT HELP REQUEST - PERCEPTUAL MOTOR PROGRAM 2015

The Early Years are looking at the possibility of running this program in 2015. A Perceptual Motor Program aims to give the child experiences in seeing, hearing, touching, processing, making perceptual judgment's and reacting through carefully sequenced activities which children enjoy doing like running, hopping, skipping, jumping, balancing, crawling, climbing, throwing, catching, bowling, sliding, etc., using a variety of common and specially designed equipment. We are lucky to have a lot of the necessary equipment already, however, most of it is in storage. We are seeking some assistance from any available parents with children in Kindy to Year 2 to help Mr McArdle remove various pieces of PMP equipment from the sheds, give them a good dusting and clean, then transfer them to the school hall. This is quite a time consuming task for one person so we would really appreciate any help next Thursday morning 13 November from 8.45am. Many thanks. Erin Leech.
