The Education Department and I have reviewed our current Bushfire Response Plan. Glen Huon Primary is a category two school which means we must take refuge offsite unless authorised by the Tasmanian Fire Service. As a category two school if the Fire Danger Rating is extreme Glen Huon would not be open. We would operate from Huonville Primary on this occasion. If the fire danger rating is severe Glen Huon will be on alert and liaising with the Department of Education and the Tasmanian Fire Service. If a fire gets underway and we are advised to evacuate Glen Huon will close and all students will be bussed to Huonville Primary for safety reasons. We have negotiated with Roberts Coaches and they have agreed to be prepared with drivers to assist on severe fire weather warning days. In the event that we did need to evacuate we will notify parents via Facebook, through our Schoolzine messaging and the Education Department will contact media outlets. Please make sure you have your e-mail registered on the website. It would also be very useful to have the Schoolzine app installed on your phone as messaging is sent directly to your phone via this app. You can access the app via the homepage of our website. If you wish to register your e-mail please complete the contact us form and provide your e-mail address.
If you would like further information about this please don’t hesitate to contact Glenys McKay Principal.
Our School Association will be meeting next Wednesday the 6th of November at 6.00 PM in the staff room.
More drama from Grade Two/Three!!!
Last Wednesday was another dramatic day in Grade Two/Three!
Writing plays creates dialogue between people. It encourages a wide variety of expressive language in order to convey messages. Expanding your vocabulary through shared conversation not only creates new neural pathways in your brain but it also nurtures positive relationships through a shared learning experience.
Oh yeah and it’s a great laugh too.
Our Athletics Carnival will be held on Thursday the 31st of October the following is the program for the day. It is predicted to be 30 degrees on Thursday. We will make a judgement on the day on when to stop if it becomes to hot to continue because of the predicted heat we will run the 800 metre races at 9.30 to ensure it is not too hot for the students. The program highlighted below will start at 10.00. Parents are welcome to come along and enjoy the day.
This week in Smarties we are exploring the wonders of water, and having lots of fun, cooling water play.
On Wednesday we'll have outdoors water play with buckets, funnels and scoops, and paint our shadows on the concrete with water. Please be sure to bring hats and sunblock!
On Thursday we will bring a wagon full of water down to the bush and use our bamboo pipes to get creative with waterfalls and creeks! We'll make boats from leaves and experiment with what floats and sinks in buckets. Thursday is also the School Athletics Carnival on the Glen Huon Community oval.
On Friday we will be singing and dancing, followed by experiments with water, and painting outside with water, then we will make a water based craft and read a story.
Just a reminder that next Thursday (the 7th) we are going on a beautiful bush walk to North West Bay River, meeting at the Sandfly Cricket Grounds car park at 10:00 and returning around 1pm.
We hope to see you there!

A 6 x 6 x 6 cube was built from magnetic cubes. It was then painted maroon on the outside
( It had been made entirely of 1 x 1 x 1 small cubes. )
How many small cubes would have 3 maroon faces?
How many small cubes would have 2 maroon faces?
How many small cubes would have 1 maroon face?
How many small cubes would have no paint on them?
Oh … and the Athletic Carnival is on Thursday. Go Maroon!!!

Term 4 Curriculum
This week we are launching our new Guitar to the Max Guitar Books and our new Bus Rock Book for all rock bands.
While it used to be by audition only, we are opening the Bus Rock program up to ALL Music Bus students in Grade 3 or older. This inclusive program is open to all students who are learning keyboard, guitar, drums or singing. This means if parents would like their child to participate in Rock Band, and there is a place available, they can sign up.
The new Rock Band Book caters for the very beginner through to true rock stars! The multi-layered sequencing of our brand new Bus Rock book allows children of all levels of skill and experience to join a band with their peers, and play specially written child-appropriate, rock songs.
As he and the students progress through their skills, they earn levelled picks and defeat the evil space aliens. The storyline and activities are presented in an engaging videogame style and the expertly illustrated books will be printed in stunning colour. Every page is full of brand new riffs, songs and skills to learn all with awesome backing tracks that kids will love playing along with.
