The Minister for Education with advice from Public Health has planned for students from K-6 to resume school onsite on 25th May. LiL will be returning later. Our staff are beginning to prepare for this return. Things won't be exactly the same. We are putting processes in place to keep adults and children safe. Our busiest times are drop off and pick up times. Parents will be encouraged to drop children off in the car park. We will have a duty teacher there to keep it safe and pick up will be undertaken in the same way. Drop off can occur from 8.30 - 8.50 this allows a free time for the bus to drop off which usually occurs between 8.50 and 8.55 am. Pick up can occur between 3.00 and 3.15 as this then clears the way for the bus at 3.20.
We will have hand sanitising station in every room and in the entrance to the school. Our playground area will be sanitised regularly. It will be very important for children to stay at home if they are unwell in any way. I will keep you updated as I find out more in regards to the return to onsite learning. Meanwhile keep up the fantastic work and learning that is occuring with our offsite learning. Our awards highlight great examples of learning from home. Thank you al for being so committed to the learning of your children.
Who has been planting, weeding, exploring in their garden at home? There’s so many Mathematical opportunities out in that environment! What activities could you include on a list of Garden Maths?
Here’s some snail maths to keep you challenged.
“Two snails found themselves at the bottom of a deep well. The well was 15.3 metres deep.
Each day the snails struggled up 180 centimetres and then stopped to rest. While they were resting the snails slid down 300 millimetres“.
How long before they reached the top of the well?
Can you draw me a diagram to capture their wild ride up and down the well?
Maybe a table to track the slips and climbs.
Or a description with numbers or words to ‘convince me of your answer’.

Levi has won the Aussie of the Month. He raised $580.00 for Leukaemia Well done.
Last Thursday 7th May the school took time out to watch Levi participate in the World’s Greatest Shave. We went live on Facebook from the school so as many people could watch as possible. This event had been planned last term with the SRC and we were thankful it could still go ahead.
Levi bravely took to the hairdressers chair at 11am and by 11:10am his hair was all gone!
He says he doesn’t regret doing it and feels like it was the least he could do to help other people that are having a hard time in life.
Levi was able to raise $580 for the Leukaemia foundation and would like to thank all the wonderful people in our community that supported him.
