Onsite at Glen Huon
It is lovely to be back onsite at Glen Huon. We had our first Tuesday assembly this morning at which the resilience of the students was highlighted and commended. We talked about keeping an eye out for each other and checking in to see if things are OK. Our focus for the next fortnight will be Courage as we move forward into the rest of the year. The children look very smart in uniform. We do sell black shorts and trousers at the office for those who are not able to find them elsewhere.
As things are getting back to normal the school calendar is beginning to be populated. Whole school assemblies will now be held on the first Monday of every month with our first being scheduled for the 4th of March. The school calendar can be accessed from our website, https://glenhuonprimary.education.tas.edu.au/
Glen Huon Primary has a Parent Handbook that is given to new families and families who request a copy if they have lost their's. As part of keeping you informed and up to date I am going to highlight a piece from this handbook each week. Handbooks will be updated this week and given to our new parents.

- Place all students on the same level in terms of clothing
- Give your child a sense of pride in their school

We are well and truly back into the swing of things. As the new student leaders of our school, Grade 5/6 are ready to show you what they’ve got. Our leader election process has begun and you can see the candidates posters popping up all over the school. Candidates speeches and voting will happen this Friday. Please get to know who our candidates are. Grade 3 – 6 will vote right after the speeches on Friday morning.
We are also very excited about the upcoming 5/6 camp to the Tasman Peninsula. This will be a great opportunity for us to have fun and get to know each other better. Please keep an eye out for more information on what to bring. Head torches or good hand held torches are a must as is a sturdy backpack and walking shoes. There will be lots to see and do.
Prior to opening the 2019 Melbourne Guitar Festival, the up-and-coming young classical guitar duo, Andrew Blanch and Ariel Nurhadi will be playing at the Palais Theatre on Friday 1 March. Their current project, entitled ‘Alchemy’, is something of a ‘world-tour’, featuring some of the finest music written/arranged for guitar duet, with masterpieces from France, Germany, Spain, Brazil, Argentina, USA, and Australia. Andrew and Ariel have been playing as a guitar duo since 2014, and have been described as “two stunning young guitarists...virtuosic” (Sydney Arts Guide) and have been praised for their “dazzling guitar playing” (ArtsHub).
