Thank you to everyone who participated in last weeks event. We had a great audience for the parade. I really appreciate the thought you as parents put in to your childrens costumes. There are lots of photos of students in costume if you would like a copy of your child's please let us know.
The Department of Education (DoE) is seeking your views as part of a review of intake areas for Tasmanian government primary and combined (district) schools from 2021 onwards.
To start the initial stage of the community consultation process, DoE has developed suggested intake areas for each government primary and combined school. We are seeking feedback on the maps from student families and the community.
There will be a second consultation process to refine any adjustments to the intake areas based on the feedback received.
Parents will still be able to apply to their school of choice, if capacity allows.
Any adjustment to intake areas would only apply to new enrolments in Tasmanian government primary and combined schools from 2021 onwards, so will not affect any current students at our school or their siblings.
For information about how to provide your feedback, and to view the maps for consultation, see ‘School Intake Area Maps’ on the DoE website at www.education.tas.gov.au/about-us/school-directory/school-intake-area-maps.
You are invited to provide your feedback by Friday 26 October 2018, keeping in mind that:
- Parents will still be able to apply to their school of choice, if capacity allows.
- The review will not change the way schools enrol students who live outside their intake area.
- The review will not affect students who are already enrolled in a school before 2021, or which high school students are entitled to attend.
- If a child has a sibling already attending a school outside their intake area, then the child can enrol at the same school as their sibling.
DO NOT OPEN THIS BOOK!
In Grade 1-2 we love reading books and this year for Book Week we voted for our favourite class story. The Do Not Open This Book won, with most of the class voting for this it is sure to become one of your favourites too.
Comments from our readers:

Talara gives it five out of five stars!
You may have noticed numbers written on the bricks around the canteen…
Our team have been preparing some puzzles for you.
Two adjacent bricks need to be added to give their sum, this is recorded on the overlaying brick just above.
The 5 level stair case puzzle is the result.
Choose from their creations and challenge our designers (Jason, Daniel, Jazmine, Eli and Reece) to name the top number.
