Message from the Principal

Please ensure that your child is picked up at 1:30pm on this day.

There has been a significant amount of learning and events happening this term.
We started Term 2 by opening our new toilet block and welcoming Natalie Suleyman State Member for St Albans to our last assembly, who presented us with an $8.17 million cheque to fund new permanent modular

school buildings.

On Tuesday students, parents and staff had the opportunity to participate in a 3 Way Conference discussing their child’s learning and future learning goals for semester two.
As a school, we have continued with our commitment to strengthen reading and maths as a whole school, building home-school partnerships in learning at the same time.

Our students have been very busy too, all inquiring into science units of

study. Our Preps attended Bundoora Farm developing their knowledge

and understandings of how to keep animals and plants healthy.

Grade 1/ 2 students attended the Melbourne Zoo as part of their

investigation into animal Lifecycles.
The grade 3/ 4 students participated in a Bee Incursion learning about the role bees have in pollinating plants.
Our grade 5/6 students investigated microorganisms and how the growth and survival of living things are affected by the physical conditions of their environment.

It was also pleasing to see the emergence of our school band ‘Minor Majors’ who performed for the very first time at assembly last week.

There is so much more I can write to celebrate the work of our students and staff and i take this opportunity to congratulate students and staff for an amazing terms work.

Thank you to all students, staff and parents for all their work throughout the term. I wish you a safe and restful 2-week holiday, ready for Term 3.

Students return to school on Tuesday 16 July for the start

of Term 3.
