Volunteers Morning Tea
Usually at this time of the year we celebrate the work of our volunteers with a lovely morning tea. Unfortunately due to current restrictions and our limited space we can not have a morning tea. However, we really appreciate the parent help and volunteers who support our school. Thank-you so much for the work you do as a volunteer, our school is a much better place because of you. We look forward to 2021 and hope we can get together then.
The Kindergarten is getting closer and closer to completion. The builders have been working at a frenetic pace. The steps have been poured and are looking great, several of the site buildings have been removed and the space is looking like a playground to be developed. We have the concept drawings for the new playground and are waiting on tender documents to be created, it is full steam ahead.
Leavers Assembly Monday 14th December Huonville Primary School
Preparation for our End of Year Assembly is ongoing. Having the assembly offsite has led to some interesting challenges. Please contact the school office before COB Thursday if you are intending on coming to the assembly, we are arranging the seating to meet COVID requirements. Thank-you to the many parents who have already contacted the office.
Reports will come home on Friday please keep an eye out for them and keep them away from the bag monster who eats all that is left inside.
We currently have 31 overdue library books. If your child has an overdue library book they would have received an overdue letter to take home over the past week. Please have a good look at home and help us return our much loved library books back to the school for the holidays. If you are unable to find your missing book the replacement price is located on the overdue letter. Please bring your letter and payment to the office by the end of this week so I can finalise and close the library for the year. Thank you to the families who have returned their books this week.

This week our wattle seeds made wattle seed history as they blasted into space. These photographs are of the SpaceX rocket that was launched from the NASA tracking station in Cape Carnarvon at 3am Sunday morning (our time). Our wattle seeds, along with seeds from others countries around the world, will spend 6 months in space and then return to earth where we will begin our observations in growing the seeds.
We are so excited to be part of this program and will keep our school community updated as we go. Follow this link to watch the rocket launch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVE3WuW0cSE
Thank you to all those learners who have taken on the challenges in the past newsletters.
I came across this amazing piece of architecture which just could not have happened if the designers, engineers and scientists did not love Maths.
So keep those aspirations high and embrace every opportunity to learn more!
