On Monday the 9th of May children in year 2 to 6 will attend an ANZAC Day incursion show. The purpose of this incursion is to give students a greater understanding of ANZAC day. The show is set in the trenches at Gallipoli four months after the landing following the Battle of Lone Pine. The performance portrays the young recruit Alex Peterson who is proud to have enlisted but does not fully understand the horror of war and treats it like an adventure. The performance uses lights and audio to stimulate the senses of the audience, to involve them and give them an insight into Australia's role as we remember the service men and women, both past and present and to keep their memory alive. The incursion will be free of charge.
Monday was the first day of our Stephanie Alexander program for the year. The Year 4 students planted out 5 garden bed with vegetable seedlings.
SCHOOL PHOTO DAY IS COMING!
Our school photo day is coming! Approximately two weeks prior to the photo day every student will receive a Kapture Photography order envelope to bring home. The recommended method of ordering your photos is online through Kapture’s website as your payment is secure and can be easily verified at any time.
Alternatively you can pay by cash and return the provided envelope to the school on the photography day. If you place your order online please DO NOT return your envelope to school.
Any parent who forgets or is unable to supply their envelope on the photo day will have five (5) days to complete an order online. Late payment envelopes cannot be accepted by the school office or by Kapture.
You also have the option to order a sibling photo package online, however please be aware there may be a limited number of sibling orders that can be placed due to time constraints on photo day. We suggest you place your online sibling order as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Please note sibling orders close @ midday Friday 13 May 2016
Kapture offer a money back guarantee for any parent who is not fully satisfied with their photo package. Should you have any queries before or after photo day, please direct them to the Kapture office on 9240 1714 or email email@example.com.
All students will be photographed individually on photo day for school administration records AS WELL as included in their class group photo available for purchase to all families. Should there be any reason why your child should NOT be included in the photo shoot –please contact the school office.
We ask parents to check their children's school bags to ensure that they have their own hats, jumpers, art shirts and no extras. Please return excess items to the school office. Many thanks.
