Principal’s Pen | Landsdale Farm, Constable Care and more


Dear Parents and Families,

It’s hard to believe it is already Week Three of this very busy and exciting term! I would like to thank everyone who supported the TA5 Bring a Can Day. We had a wonderful response with over 250 cans donated to Food Bank. I would also like to thank the parents who returned this year’s Parent Survey. It was lovely to read some of the positive feedback about our teachers and the school community. Some of the comments asked for improved responses to complaints and this is something I will be working hard to address.

Landsdale Farm Excursion

Thank you to Mrs Leeson for organising this fun excursion for our Year 1 classes. From all reports it was a fantastic day. We have some very tired but happy Year 1 students who have been telling me all about it today. Next Wednesday our Kindergarten and Pre-Primary students will also be going along to visit the farm.

Constable Care Incursion

Thank you to Miss Savage for organising this terrific incursion. The incursion included some important road safety messages aimed at keeping our children safe. If you would like to carry on this conversation with your children there is a great article on the Constable Care website at the link below.

Bike Racks

We are planning to move our bike racks to the sheltered verandah at the side of our Science Block. As these are very heavy I would like to ask for any volunteers who could help us to transport them to the new site. If you are able to help out please meet me at the basketball courts at 3.15pm on Monday the 29th of October.

Outdoor Classroom and Science Day

Next Thursday we will be holding our annual Science Assembly. This will be a showcase of some of the inspiring Science experiments our students take part in. The assembly will be followed by Science activities throughout the school and then our teachers will be taking the learning outside in the afternoon to celebrate Outdoor Classroom Day.
