Deputy’s Desk | Santa Mail, Edu-Dance & More..


Dear Parents,


A child is like a butterfly in the wind. Some can fly higher, but each one flies the best it can.
Each one is different special and beautiful. –  Edda Dallinger

It is hard to believe that Christmas time is upon us and that all the wonderful festivities are beginning  with the Christmas trees going up this weekend. Santa mail is back and the children are able to post their cards in the birdcage, just inside the office door!

Please make sure that the children put the location of the recipient (TA) along with the name clearly marked. This year I have asked the children if they would like to include a card to someone they don’t know so well, just to make their day. Cards are cheap, or they could make their own and the postage is the right price (free)!

The children are working hard on their Edu-Dance routine in preparation for the concert on 7 December. The evening starts with a family picnic from 5:30pm on the grass and the concert and class prizes will begin at 6:30pm.

If you sit on a chair, we ask that you sit a little further back. A picnic rug is essential as we do breed ants very well at Goollelal! Low chairs are fine of course. Please remember that this is an alcohol free event.

The children will assemble in their classes in the under covered area just before 6:30pm. The concert should finish about 7:45pm. Please see below the requests for each classes costumes for the evening. The costumes give the performance some flair. The Edu-Dance concert is a highlight on the calendar each year.

The Year 6 students have been thoroughly enjoying their big days out and they have another planned this Thursday in the form of a Scavenger Hunt through the city. It sounds like lots of fun. On Wednesday 6 December, the year 6 students will graduate with a formal ceremony in the morning and a lovely dinner at 6:00pm that evening. We are proud of their achievements. They have been a great bunch of children and we will miss their smiling faces. For now, though they have lots to look forward to.

Please remember that with the days heating up, the children must have their broad brimmed hat and it is ideal to have sunscreen on from home along with a water bottle.

Kind regards


Kerry Hartmann | Deputy Principal
