I would like to wish everyone a very safe and Happy Easter and School Holiday break and look forward to seeing everyone back at school for the start of Term 2 on Wednesday 21st April.
Thank you to everyone for a wonderful start to the year.
Thank you to all our students for arriving each day with bright, smiling faces ready to learn new things.
Thank you to all our staff who give so much of their time, care and energy into supporting our learning community.
Thank you to our parents, families and friends who do so much to support our school.
Over the school holidays work on our new Kindergarten Playground will begin. This will be very exciting and is expected to be finished in early May.
Our classrooms are also going to have a big makeover during the holidays as part of the COVID stimulus works. All classrooms will be receiving new LED lighting and most of them will be getting new carpet and paint. I can’t wait to see the finished rooms. They are going to look so nice, fresh and modern.
A reminder that this Thursday 1st April is a Student Free Day. Teachers from the Huon Cluster of schools will be meeting on this day to undertake Moderation of work samples.
Thank you for all the donations and raffle ticket sales. We had a major sponsor this year with Teirney Law making a donation towards our raffle.
This year we raised a whopping $690 to go towards our playground.
The winners are:
- Sally Allan
- Jenny Wilson
- Ellias Goodwin
- Tina Munson
- Maddie Dewhurst
- Shanni Cannell
20,000 Tasmanians have epilepsy and an additional 80,000 family members, colleagues and friends are affected in some way.
One-fifth of Tasmania’s population is touched by epilepsy, yet the condition still has an unfortunate stigma that causes much hurt and frustration.
1 in 200 students in Tasmania has epilepsy and it can affect their performance at school.
- Seizures and medication can make it hard for a child to concentrate during class and remember information.
Would you know what to do if you saw someone having a seizure?
Take a look at the Epilepsy first Aid poster included in the newsletter/ Facebook page for more information.
