A big thank-you to Megan and her band of volunteers who ran the car boot sale on Saturday it was a lovely day for it and I believe that in the morning quite a number of people turned up. It was a little quieter when I arrived but I did enjoy the sausage for my lunch.
Our athletics carnival is on Thursday 10.00 -2.00 it will be a different carnival this year with an emphasis on participation and fun. If you wish to volunteer please let the office know. If you wish to spectate let the office know so we can send a COVID form home for you to fill out. If it gets gobbled up by the bag monster we will have some at the oval on the day for you to fill out. Please observe physical distancing whilst attending the event and keep 1.5 metres away from where the children are sitting.
The Kindergarten is coming along well, the bricklayers are here today to build the steps. The palyground concept design has been drawn and is now going to be priced it is looking very exciting.
It’s here! The end of 2020 and the Glen Huon Parents and Friends Association is hoping to go out on a high.
We are wanting to make this End of Year Raffle one of the best in the Valley and in order to do that, we need your help! We know that we have an amazing assortment of talented parents and we would love to showcase your businesses in our raffle.
This year we are focusing on local goods, services and produce and we would greatly appreciate a donation from your business, be it a product, a gift voucher or service voucher. It doesn’t have to be extravagant, just so we can put a hamper together and show people what we have on offer.
All money raised will be going directly to replacing the school playground equipment that has been removed to make way for the new Kindergarten. This will benefit all the kids and will be in line with the bush theme of the school.
Donations can be made by contacting Laura Corbett on 0437 177 505 or taken to the school office as of Tuesday the 24th November.
We would like to thank everyone who donated items and their time to making our Garage Sale Trail/Car Boot Sale a big success on Saturday. We had a lovely turn out from the community who came to have a look and found some bargains. We are so excited that we can recycle and re use, therefore managing to keep items out of land fill while earning some money towards our new playground.
A big thank you to Adam for picking up the tongs on the BBQ yet again. Laura for her support in organising the event and helping to rally the troops. Steve, Reema, Bec, Michelle, Wojt, Donna, Freya, Chy, Katherine, Koby, Vera and Sally. Your help on the day and sorting the donations is so appreciated. Natasha, thank you for donating and running the raffle. I am sure that the winner will be very happy with the lovely prize.
Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us on the day and found some bargains!!
Congratualtions to Gail Hay, the winner of the raffle.

Prep/One are inquiring into Celebrations. Our Big Idea is: Acknowledging and celebrating how different traditions and customs enriches and connects communities.
To tune in to our Inquiry I asked the children “What is a celebration?”
Some of the comments they made were (typed as they spoke):
Bindy: Something you celebrate is Easter
Birdie: A celebration is like a baby shower like when someone is going to have a baby, that’s a celebration.
Emily: A celebration is like when someone is turning an age that is a celebration – I am turning something today! (It was Emily’s 6th birthday!)
Sophie: A celebration is something that where you go out to somewhere to have a birthday or a party or to a restaurant with your family. Also sometimes people go out for dinners with their family and their kids and have fun with them. They take their kids to a party so the kids have fun!
Alfie: A celebration is a party and where people get together. It is also what happened today when we were planting the tree. (It was the day we planted the new Pin Oak replacing the 112 year old tree that blew down)
Esther: A celebration is more like having a beer party, fizzy parties and wine parties
Thomas: A celebration is something you like to go and you will get parties and you will go on a dinosaur trampoline and you get to have party bags and you have fun with your family. You will get something to eat at a restaurant and go on roller coasters and go around and around. You might see something scary, but you might be brave. When you go home it makes you better, it makes your mind a little bit “funner!” It will be so nice. If you hug your parents – if you be nice they might take you somewhere.
Luka: A baby shower is a time when babies shower down from the sky! Haha! It is really when someone is going to have a baby and sometimes they get things for their baby. Tom added – “It is a party for them”
With this week being our last book borrowing week for the year, now is a good time to start looking for any overdue library books that you may have at home. I will be sending overdue letters home over the next few weeks, this will help you with your search. If you are unable to find your missing book please let me know.
Thanks, Kate Harvey
A ladybird starting at point A can crawl around the four sides of the cube in 4 minutes.
Can you prove how long it will take to crawl from A to the opposite upper corner of B.
How many ways could he go?
Which way would be quickest and why?
Enjoy, Stephanie van der Schans
