Advent Fridays – St Vinnies Christmas Appeal

Every year during the time of Advent we come together to support those who are in need during Christmas.  Normally we would bring in donations of food, toiletries and toys. 

However, with the year that we have all experienced in 2020, we have decided to have 4 Advent Fridays (like we do for Lent).

Over the next 4 weeks, each Friday will have a theme based on our Advent learning. Each Friday we ask you to bring in a gold coin donation.

Working alongside St Vinnies, with the money raised from our Fridays over Advent, we as a school community will donate this to the St Vinnies Christmas Appeal.


Come dressed in your school uniform and wear a symbol of what your hopes are for our world!

Bring a gold coin donation


Library Books

Dear Parents,

All library books need to be returned to school next Friday and there will be no more borrowing until 2021.  Please look carefully for any overdue library books and return these also.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Book Week Parade

What an amazing day we had celebrating our curious creature/character from a book. Everyone looked sensational and the creativity was so amazing to see.

A big thank you to our wonderful families for the support this week, it was very much appreciated. It’s been a big transition back to learning at school and we are all exhausted so we hope you can all enjoy a restful 3 days.

Reminder: Don’t forget to check out our live Twitter feed of our parade from this morning!

Following on from yesterday’s post about Book Week. All students will need to wear their runners as it is a Thursday and they will still have their specialist subjects.

Many thanks for the ongoing support!

Thursday-Book Week Dress Up Day and Parade

Dear Foundation Families,

This Thursday is our dress up day for Book Week, so just a few reminders about the day.

  • Students may dress up as a creature or use their imagination to create a costume of their choice.
  • Students come to school wearing their costume.
  • Students will wear their costume all day so please make sure they are able to independently manage going to the toilet.
  • Students don’t need to wear their school uniform underneath their costume.
  • The Book Parade will be live streamed through Twitter at 9.30am.

We can’t wait to see all our amazing Foundation students dressed up!

Term 4 Weekly Timetable

Dear Families,

What an amazing day we had being back together again and what glorious sunshine we had for our picnic and games afternoon! It brought us so much joy watching everyone reconnect and have so much fun together. We are sure we sent home some tired, but very happy students.

Thank you to everyone who remembered to send along summer hats, bookbags and orange pencilcases. If these weren’t at school today can you please pop them into your child’s bag tonight-much appreciated!

Please find our Term 4 Weekly Planner below and note that the Wallabies have a different sport day.

We hope you all enjoyed a little ‘me’ time today!

Thursday’s Learning Slides

Good Morning Foundation!

Here are today’s learning slides. Today we spend some time getting ready to come back to school by reflecting on what we have been grateful for. There’s a special letter to write to your teacher and in maths we continue to explore money by thinking about what money looks like.




We are so thankful for our time together during remote learning from home so let’s enjoy our last Thursday together over ‘screen’ time because NEXT Thursday we will be all together again!

Have a great day!

Wednesday Learning Tasks

Good Morning Foundation!

Only THREE days of learning left and then we will back together again!
We are so excited to be seeing all of you! After reading your task from Monday, it sounds like you can’t wait to see your friends. What do you want to ask them when we return? Today we add these questions to our Memory boxes!

We also continue to explore how we can use money. You might like to collect some catalogues from your mailbox or in your recycle bin to help you complete today’s Maths task.

Finally, now that you have located your lunchbox, it’s time to think about what we might pack in it. Today we design our own healthy lunchbox!

Enjoy your Wednesday champions!
