Dear Parents and Caregivers
Reporting to Parents
By and large, the children at OLG are simply wonderful. Relief staff and visitors almost always comment on their friendliness and manners and the sense of calm and order that prevails. That said, from time to time our children make poor choices that impact on others e.g. bullying. The school needs to know of such incidents so that it can intervene early. I ask that parents let the class teacher know by the next day if there is suspected bullying occurring – do not leave it for a few weeks.

OLG Run for Fun commences Term 2
“OLG Run for Fun” is a free running club where kids of all ages and fitness levels can come together before school to run and exercise in a positive and supportive environment. Parents and grandparents are also welcome to come along for fitness and quality time with their children.
We all know running is a great way to get fit, but it offers so much more. Kids who exercise in the morning are generally more engaged and focussed during lesson time. Running clubs enable kids to build friendships and have fun. Running builds healthy hearts and minds and brings joy to children.
The Running Club is run by volunteer parents each Tuesday and Thursday morning during school terms and will commence on Tuesday 2nd May 2017. It will include some warm up activities and games and there will be a couple of running courses, of different lengths, around Charles Riley Reserve to suit different ages and fitness levels. There will be no free breakfast or awards - it’s just for participation and fun.
As the Running Club is run by parents, students in Year 3 or below must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to ensure adequate supervision. A permission slip will need to be completed before your child can participate. Permission slips will be available for signing at the first session your child chooses to attend.
Days: Every Tuesday and Thursday morning (starting 2nd May 2017)
The body achieves what the mind believes.
