Term 1 Week 6
Dear Parents, Carers and Students
Apologies to the families and students whose names were listed in last week’s newsletter but did not receive their Principal awards this week as they should have. The week 6 student recipients were inadvertently distributed in error. Both week 5 and week 6 recipients will be acknowledged at next week’s assembly.
We have been advised by Scholastic Book Clubs that as a result of the involvement of our students in book club and book fairs held last year students accrued 212 457 additional reading minutes based on a reading minutes formula and the number of books purchased through our school. Regular reading enhances literacy skills and literacy skills change lives. Thanks to Ruth Clark and Mrs Alcorn for their respective coordination of our book club and book fairs.

As advised at the recent P&C meeting our iconic fig tree has had to be removed due to safety concerns. We plan to replace it with some native tress to be planted along the Drop-Off zone perimeter fence. We had a photo taken of the tree with all the children in front of it on Friday (see front page). We are planning for this photo to be printed and displayed in our school.
Parents are advised that nominations for P&C executive positions are on the school website. Nominations should be sent to the school attention of the P&C secretary. All positions will be declared vacant at the AGM this Thursday 6th March as per normal procedures.
