30 July 2017 PRINCIPAL UPDATE   WISDOM UPFRONT   “It is only after you have stepped outside your comfort zone that you begin to change, grow and transform.”   Dear Families   A warm welcome to all families for another term.  I trust the holidays were an opportunity for relaxation and you have returned to school healthy and well.  Term 3 always seem particularly busy and long, but while it starts out in the cold of winter, it ends in the beginning of spring.  Let us embrace the term as one, full of possibility and hope.     STAFF UPDATES We welcome Teresa Germano (Year 2K) to our school for the majority of term 3, whilst Mrs Callaway is on leave. We hope Teresa has an enjoyable time in our community.     SAFETY ALERT Our school has been alerted recently that there have been a number of inappropriate incidents involving teenagers at Kevin Flint Memorial Reserve, Furlong Road Cairnlea.  The incidents have involved teenagers chasing other children, stealing from them, intimidating and attempting to hurt them.   I ask all families that live in the area to be aware of this situation and notify the police of any information that may assist them in identifying these teenagers.   Your support to this matter is greatly appreciated.     ENROLMENTS 2019  Enrolments for Prep 2019 are near to closing with few positions available.  To be eligible to commence school next year, children will need to be five years of age by 30 April, 2019.  Please notify the school office immediately if you are yet to enrol your child.  Enrolment packages are available from the school administration.   ASSEMBLY School assemblies for 2018 continue to be held fortnightly on Friday afternoon’s beginning at 2.40pm.  In the event of inclement weather or extreme heat, assemblies will be rescheduled. Our next assembly is scheduled for Friday 10th August with 4GV leading the assembly.   SCHOOL FEES Thank you to those families who have finalised their Term 3 accounts.  It is important that all overdue fees are paid as soon as possible.  Those families with outstanding amounts will be contacted and are asked to rectify the matter.  Please contact the school immediately if you have any further queries.   SUPERVISION BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL The school yard is supervised from 8.20am every morning.  Parents are asked to not send their child before this time if possible.  The Out of School Hours Program is available each morning in the parish hall from 7.00am if required and from 3.15pm to 6.00pm each afternoon. Classroom teachers are at school but are unable to supervise students, as they are preparing for the day.  A reminder that all students finish school at 3.00p.m on Wednesdays and 3.15pm each of the other days. Unless the school is notified of your delay, students who have not been collected by 3.30p.m may be taken to the After School Program and parents will be charged accordingly.   Due to safety reasons, playground expectations for before and after school are as follows:   No children on playground equipment or in any other unsupervised areas including courtyards Down ball and passive activities only, before school Students should be seated under shelter whilst they wait to be picked up after school   We thank you for your support in ensuring the safety of all students and community.   TERM DATES FOR 2018   Term 3         Monday, 16th July to Friday, 21st September   Friday, 3rd August                                                      School Closure Day Wednesday, 15th to Friday, 17th August                 Year 6 Camp Phillip Island Adventure Resort Monday, 27th to Wednesday 29th August              Year 5 Camp - Arribri Lodge       Thursday, 30th August                                                Sacrament of Reconciliation: 5.30pm Friday, 31st August                                                       Father’s Day Breakfast & Mass Thursday, 6th September                                            Sacrament of Reconciliation: 5.30pm     Term 4        Monday, 8 October to Friday, 14 December             Friday, 2nd November                             Sports Fun Day Monday, 5th November                           Parish Closure Day (School Closure Day) Tuesday, 6th November                           Melbourne Cup (School Closure Day) Thursday, 6th December                          Learning Conversations (School Closure Day)     God Bless   Mr Armando Gagliardi PRINCIPAL  UPDATE Read More
