Term 2, Week 2

Image
Welcome back to another week in paradise! I hope everyone managed to escape to their secret spot and enjoy the awesome run of weather we are having. I spent 3 days in the shapartment sealing the plywood walls and ceilings. It's definitely a job that I would highly recommend you all experiencing at least once in your life.  QUOTE OF THE WEEK ANZAC DAY SERVICE To those of you that came on Friday afternoon would agree at how well the students created an atmosphere that would have rivaled any Anzac commemoration. Great job 5J! WHEELIE, WALKIE, WASTE FREE WEDNESDAY If possible, please send your child to school with a waste free lunch tomorrow and each Wednesday for the rest of the term. It's a great initiative that instills sustainable behaviours in all of us. Another great way to get behind this initiative, is to walk or ride to school. If you are too far from school, walking from the church may be a way for you to partake.  INSIDE THE CLASSROOM We are continuing with our problem

Welcome to the new Term!!! I hope you all had a fantastic break. Some of you may be aware that I have recently moved up to my block in Quedjinup. So happy to be up there, albeit in a caravan for now (hopefully only a week or two longer) before finally moving into the shapartment (shed - apartment). Managed to do my best Russell Coight impression on the weekend. QUOTE OF THE WEEK IMPORTANT REMINDERS Anzac Day Prayer Assembly 5J have put their hands up to run the Anzac Day Assembly for 2021. The service will take place this Friday and will begin at approximately 2:00pm. We would love it if you could come and join us. Wheelie, Walkie, Waste-free Wednesday: Will begin Week 2 for the remainder of the Term NAPLAN: Week 4 and 5 HOME LEARNING Home learning is back on this week. Please continue to monitor your child as they complete their home learning grids and only sign it at the end of the week if you are satisfied that they have successfully completed all tasks. Please note that the 'S

Welcome to the final week of the term! I can't believe we are already entering into Holy Week and will soon be celebrating Easter with our families. I hope you all have a fantastic break, wherever you may be, and we shall see you all save and sound on the other side of the holidays. QUOTE OF THE WEEK IMPORTANT REMINDERS Swimming Carnival: As you may already be aware our Swimming Carnival will take place this Thursday 1st April at Margaret River Leisure Centre. The start time is 10am, please refer to school's previous email for further information. MESSAGE from MRS LEAHY -  Please help us construct Pre-primary Icebergs!!! Our Pre-primary science lessons have involved looking at how ‘the sun changes everything’. We are planning on finishing our unit by constructing 2 ‘icebergs’ in the pre-primary area to see how the sun effects one sitting in the sun and the other sitting in the shade. But we need your help…. We are asking every family in the school to bring iceblocks (made usin

 G'day all! What an awesome weekend we were blessed with. Hopefully you were out and about and enjoying the sunshine... QUOTE OF THE WEEK   5 J PARENT REPS 2021 A massive thank you needs to be extended to Kelly Sweet and Kim Archer who have put their hand up to be the class reps for the year. It would be great if we all offer our support as much as we can throughout the year because they are also the parent reps for one of the Pre-Primary classes. I think they both deserve a round of applause! PARENT / TEACHER INTERVIEWS I will be conducting parent interviews in Week 8 for those of you that would like to come in and have a chat. Each block is for 15 minutes, however, interviews are approximately 10 - 12 minutes long. This allows me a couple of minutes to get ready for the next interview. Please check your email for a shared 'live' document where you will be able to book your spot online. Please use your last name in the document. If you have any troubles, please let me know

Howdy folks! What an awesome day yesterday! Pumping waves all day, light winds to enjoy a drink down at Yallingup in the evening and saw the International Space Station move through the sky at about 7:05pm. I hope you all had a great weekend! QUOTE OF THE WEEK SWIMMING LESSONS Swimming lessons started today and I have to say a huge thank you to you all for being extremely organised. A couple of points to ponder: 1. Students can wear thongs to and from the beach but will need to put shoes back on before going home. 2. We will have a snack at 12:00pm before leaving school at 12:20pm (you may want to pack something extra). 3. We have our lunch when we arrive back at school at 1:40pm. ALTAR SEVERS NOTE Your child should have brought a note home last week asking for volunteers to altar serve at our Parish Masses. In volunteering, your child will display a terrific sense of community and leadership to help Father Francis in this way. ALL children must return a note to indicate if they are in

Good evening OLC! I hope you had an enjoyable weekend and managed to get out to experience the extra large surf that was on offer. We really do live in such an amazing place! QUOTE OF THE WEEK PRAYERS Please keep the Clift family in your thoughts after their devastating loss towards the end of last week. I am aware that a Year 5 group has already been assembled to help out in any way that they can. Make sure that you get in contact with the group to help out where you can. It's great to see the OLC community banding together during this time of need.   SWIMMING TRIALS On Tuesday, the 23rd of February, Years 4, 5 & 6 will be departing school at 9am to travel to the Geographe Leisure Centre (Busselton) for the swimming carnival time trials. We will be returning to school by lunch time.   Students will need to wear sport uniform (faction t-shirt) over their bathers. Sport shoes must be worn to school but a pair of thongs may be packed in your child's school bag to travel to an
