Our first session of gymnastics was held last Thursday. This was a great hit with the students they loved it. We are very lucky that Huon Valley Community Bank have provided us with a grant towards the cost of the buses for this program. Thank you Huon Valley Community Bank.
Our Kindergarten re-development is moving along nicely. I will be sharing the latest plans at the School Association meeting next Wednesday. Come along and share the excitement.
Congratulations to Gabby Hay who came first in the shotput for her age group in the State Athletics Carnival.
Parent Handbook Update
Wearing the school uniform is an important part of Glen Huon Primary. The uniform engenders a sense of pride and unity in the school. Wearing a uniform will:
- Help your child to feel like they belong in their school
- Place all students on the same level in terms of clothing
- Give your child a sense of pride in their school
It is important to note that sensible shoes such as sneakers or school shoes are part of the uniform policy. Gumboots, ugg boots, thongs are not suitable for daily wearing as every child is involved in physical activity daily.
Full details of the uniform are available on a separate form from the school office. Most items and sizes are kept in stock, however, items can be ordered on request.
If available, second-hand uniforms may also be purchased through the school office.
At the beginning of the year, school uniform sales will be coordinated to coincide with levy payments. Notification of this day will be given at the end of the previous year.
We have a school uniform policy that has been approved by the School Association. Please ask to see it at the office for further details.
This month in Smarties our focus is on prepositions - positional words like between, behind, under and through.
On Wednesday we will be cooking raspberry muffins - lots of pouring in, on, over and mixing around! We will play with some sensory slime, the rocking bowl and the wooden building blocks - maybe we can build some bridges and tunnels for cars to drive over, under and through.
On Thursday we have an excursion to wayraparatee in Geeveston for a special bush playgroup event with a nature play expert from NSW, Sam Crosby, as well as Make Believe storytelling. See below for more details...
On Friday we'll play with the bats and balls, dance and sing, read a fun story and make something special to take home.
We hope to see you there, Jess Black and Annette Carson

It should be a great day, and all Smarties families are invited to join us!
A free bus will be leaving Glen Huon at 9am, and returning around 12:45pm - or alternatively if you prefer you can meet us there at 10am.
We've started a Parents & Friends Facebook group, anyone who is interested in being involved in the Parents & Friends in any way is very welcome to join!
We will be planning fundraisers, choosing how to spend the funds and sharing ideas to help support our awesome little school. The Parents & Friends is a great way to get involved in your child's education, and to have a cuppa (real or digital) with some lovely school families.
We will have some meetings in person, either at the school or at the Local Cafe which has an indoor play area, and we will also chat online so that families who work and study can also be equally involved.
Here's the link if you want to get involved.
Last week we went to Bonorong to learn more about some Australian animals that we are studying at school. We saw kangaroos, wombats, koalas and cockatoos. We each got to pat a koala and wombat and we even got to feed some kangaroos! It was great fun and we got to do lots of fun things there.
