Thank you to the Parents and Friends
The Parents and Friends have purchased two fantastic new toasters, a new electric frying pan and a new stick blender for our canteen with proceeds from the Lunch orders.
I have been enjoying the delicious lunch orders and can highly recommend them ?
A reminder that lunch orders are now to be placed using the Spriggy Schools App, with orders closing 10am every Wednesday morning.
Congratulations to Emily Hill who was elected as our new School Association Chairperson at our meeting at the beginning of the month. We thank Kobi Goodwin for her work in this role. Kobi is not able to hold a Chairperson role as she is a member of staff, but she is continuing as a staff member of the committee.
Grade 6 Combined Schools Band performance
We had the pleasure of welcoming the Grade 6 Combined Schools Band to our school last Thursday. It was such a wonderful opportunity to experience live music and also to learn more about the various instruments which were being played from the Woodwind, Brass and Percussion families.
Hurricanes Cricket Workshops
Last Thursday our Grade 1/2 and 2/3 classes enjoyed a visit from some members of the Hurricanes Cricket team, who ran some cricket workshops. Everyone had lots of fun practicing their skills and getting some tips from the experts.

The canteen is still looking for more volunteers to help keep it running! If you are interested in helping please contact Laura Corbett on 0437177507.
ONE WEEK TO GO
We would like to invite parents and grandparents to our morning celebrations on Tuesday 24th August for Book Week. This year’s theme is ‘Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds.’
The staff at Glen Huon decided it would be lots of fun to dress up as Roald Dahl Characters. I wonder if you can pick which characters each staff member is going to be? Have fun creating a character from your child’s favourite book. You may choose any character from a book of your choice or you may like to join the staff with the Roald Dahl theme. We can’t wait to see all the wonderful book characters appearing at school ready for the book parade.
Parade will commence at 9:00am
If you would like to join us please RSVP to the office by Monday 23rd August.
COVID restrictions and QR code still apply and physical distance must be maintained.

Thank you so much for continuously supporting our school, especially through fundraising. Next Term we are hosting a Colour Explosion School Fun Run to raise money for the nw playground.
The big day is coming! We are so excited to host our Colour Explosion School Fun Run on Thursday 9th December. We will be looking for parents to volunteer their help on the day if you would like to attend. On the day, make sure your child brings a white shirt for the Fun Run!

A letter with sponsorship booklet will be coming home in the following weeks.
We're Going Green! This year, we have chosen to reduce our impact on the environment and Go Green! For every $15 we raise, Carbon Neutral will plant one native tree or shrub in a biodiversity hotspot.

Just a friendly reminder that we’re fundraising with Zoom Kites and we would love it if you would support us by buying some!
They are super colourful and easy to fly kites perfect for all children aged 2-12. They will get your kids outside running around and help us raise money all at the same time.
You can buy it directly online at https://zoomkites.com.au/order/
Thankyou again to everyone who has ordered. We have sold 15 kites and are halfway to our minimum order with just over two weeks to go.
