Our next whole school monthly Assembly is on Monday 2nd November 1.50pm. As we are still working to COVID safety rules you will need to let the office know if you are coming so we can arrange seating to meet COVID requirements.
We have made the decision to have our final assembly on the 14th of December at Huonville Primary in their multi purpose room. If we do this we will be able to accommodate many more adults for the occasion. The students will be bussed to Huonville for the morning and the assembly will commence at 12.00PM. This is advanced notice so that parents who wish to attend can arrange work commitments etc. Closer to the date we will call for RSVPs so that we can arrange seating accordingly.
Thank you to the families who participated in our book week parade. We were very lucky with the weather. It was exciting to see such interesting characters arriving at school.
A reminder that Thursday is a show day holiday and Friday is a student free day.
Our Kinder is now being clad with a lovely timber cladding. It is exciting to see how much progress occurs from week to week.
Many children need help to remember to bring their hats to school. The UV rating is now high from 9.50 until 4.00 therefore protection is required between these times. We did have some spare hats in the office but these are now somewhere in the mix meaning personal hats must be used. Appropriate hats are bucket hats, broad brimmed hats or legionnaires hats caps are not approved sun safety wear. Bucket hats are available from the office for $8.50.
Glen Huon Primary School will be visited by the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) Aeromedical Simulator on Tuesday 27th October, 2020.
Please bring a gold coin donation to help the RFDS with their amazing work and with their educational tours.

This week we only have Smarties on Wednesday, as Thursday is a Public Holiday and Friday is a Student Free Day.
We look forward to playing together in the Kindergarten space, we will be playing with coloured cooked spaghetti for a wonderful sensory experience, and if the Spring sun decides to shine we'll get out the bikes and the bubbles!
Don't forget we have Pre-Kinder for those children who will be in Kindergarten next year, on Wednesday afternoons from 1:30pm to 2:45pm, the children were so happy and settled last week, it was a wonderful experience for everyone!
What a beautiful sunny day to celebrate Book Week with our annual parade. The atmosphere at school this morning was bursting with delight. Children were so excited to see their friends, teachers and staff and marvel at their amazing costumes.
Our parade this year was held outside on the courts allowing parents to come and enjoy the celebrations during these tricky social distancing times.
The staff this year delighted the children with characters from Eric Carle Books and the children delighted the staff with amazing characters from their favourite books. So many smiles as I walked around this morning.
A big thank you goes out to all the parents for helping bring book week to life.

The Kinders had a wonderful afternoon with their Gr 3 Buddy class and Ms Munro. We shared some nice quiet relaxing time at the end of the day by sharing books and having our buddies read to us. It is great for the children to remember when they were in Kinder and how much they have learnt, whilst the Kinders see that they too will one day be great readers.
Just needing to borrow items for our musical production "THE PEACE CHILD" we are currently rehearsing for. Any old match stick or bamboo blinds, natural woven items, fishing net or even part of one. Older type, cane cray pots, palm leaves etc our theme is taken from the mystical land of Mambica! Please don't hesitate to contact me about anything you think may fit our theme, even if you aren't sure, I'm happy to take a look.
A reminder to parents of drama students, our rehearsals will include Mondays as well as our normal Tuesday, but with a finish time of 5 o'clock on the Monday only and no dinner break. A piece of fruit or vegetable for straight after school is fine.
Thank you everyone. We are approaching exciting times in our rehearsals.
Our Base Ten number system uses ten digits to make every number we can think of.
Each digit may be positioned into a different place to indicate a different size.
To help us to visualise the numbers we often use a grid to organise them. When we imagine our numbers in a grid, patterns become evident.
In fact, that is a great way to begin to make sense of our number system … just look for the patterns!
Isabella in Grade 1 was quite keen to colour-in the patterns on her 1 – 100 number chart. We tried to colour-in the same digit with its own unique colour.
Look what happened.
Daigo is a young cellist in a Japanese city orchestra. His wife Mika works as a web designer. Times are hard for the orchestra and Daigo suggests to his colleagues that Mika could help establish a modern, online presence for the orchestra. Instead, the orchestra’s owner announces he’s disbanding it.
Out of work and no longer able to support himself in the big city, Daigo and Mika move back to the provincial town he left years ago to pursue his musical dreams. Responding to an Ad for a company specialising in “Departures”, Daigo sets off to become a travel agent. Puzzled by the coffins on display in the company’s foyer, it takes a while for the penny to drop.
Departures spins a light and engaging tale about a rather naïve and self-centred young man as he becomes absorbed into the traditional Japanese rituals for preparing the deceased for burial.
‘Bring a plate to share’ was a much-enjoyed tradition of Palais Movie nights before COVID. After seeking advice, we are now re-introducing this custom. We invite you to bring a plate to share this movie night. However, if you don't yet feel comfortable eating from a shared plate, we suggest you join us with your own BYO nibbles and snacks.
Hygiene and Social Distancing
We have the standard Tasmania-wide COVID-safe protocols in place, as mandated by Council: hand sanitisers, social distancing (1.5m), disinfecting and cleaning. Seating distances, queues at bar areas etc will be explained and supervised by the Palais Management Committee on the night.
For Contact Tracing Purposes
On entry to the Palais, we will record the name and contact phone number of all movie goers (one contact per individual, couple or group). Contact details will be securely stored then destroyed after 4 weeks
Doors open 6.30pm
