Term 4 Running Club K – 6
Term 4 Running Club starts this Thursday! All students in Kindy to Year 6 are encouraged to join Miss Uglow on the Primary Green every THURSDAY MORNING to run as many laps around the Green as you can! No matter what your ability is, come on down to earn House points, improve your fitness, build your confidence and run your way towards a healthier lifestyle.
Each participating student will be given their own Running Club lapathon card to count their laps every week. Students will earn 1 Running Club House Point for every lap they complete around the Primary Green. Overall Running Club House Points will be announced at assembly, with the winning House announced at the end of the term. Running Club lapathon cards must be left with Miss Uglow at the end of each session. Students who attended the club last term will resume running with the same lapathon card again this term.
We will meet on the Primary Green every Thursday morning from 8.00am onwards (commencing Week 3). Come dressed in your sport uniform or normal school uniform and running shoes. You can still participate even if you are not dressed in your sport uniform! Everyone is welcome – you do not need to sign up to participate in this club. Run at your own pace and come and go as you please. Parents/guardians and younger siblings are encouraged to join in too.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact email@example.com

Jump Rope for Heart 2022
Jump Rope for Heart is back for Term 4! Jump Rope for Heart is a fantastic physical activity and fundraising program that has been run by the Heart Foundation for over 36 years. It’s a great way for your child to keep fit and learn new skills, but it also helps raise funds for vital heart research and education programs. Since Jump Rope for Heart started in 1983, schools like ours have raised more than $104 million for the Heart Foundation’s lifesaving work.
It’s important you register your child online, so they can receive the full benefits of the program and participate in online fundraising, simply follow the link below to get started. www.jumprope.org.au/parents
Students will be practicing their skipping at school and home, and during this time you can share their online fundraising page with family and friends to help raise money for this great cause.
We will hold our school Jump Off Day on Wednesday 16 November (Week 6), and this will mark the end of the program and is a chance for everyone to come together to skip and show off their newly learned skills. Students are invited to wear something red on this day ❤
Thank you for supporting the Jump Rope for Heart program!

A Night on The Green
As mentioned earlier in Term 3, it is with great excitement that we invite our school community to the inaugural “Night on The Green” on Saturday 3 December from 4:30pm to 7:30pm. If you would like to be involved and give a couple of hours of your time to help on the day, please contact Bronwyn (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Karen (email@example.com ).
This parent led event is a fantastic opportunity for our community to come together, but also for everyone to get some Christmas shopping done! Many of our Christmas Market stall holders will have Eftpos machines, however some may only accept cash (something to keep in mind).
Your child/children will be able to get their picture taken in our special Santa’s Grotto this year! A lovely souvenir to share with family and friends. Please note that the photographer in charge will be able to take cash only ($5).
A lot of time and effort has already been invested by parents to ensure that this event is a memorable one for all. We look forward to our community get-together and hope to see you there!

Final Day of Term 4 Celebrations (Wednesday 7 December)
It’s hard to believe that we are already planning our end of year celebrations 🙂! To end the year on a high note, please note that we will be holding a final Assembly at approximately 11:45am in the Primary Forum followed by a Fun Colour Run on The Green at approximately 12:15pm 🙂! All parents are welcome to attend! Students will be dismissed from school at 1pm. Lots of fun to end our 2022 academic year! We suggest families bring a few spare garbage bags to cover their car seats as students will no doubt be a little messy after their run 🙂!
Below is some important information to note for this event:
What do students need to wear?
The optimal effect of a Colour Run occurs when participants wear a plain, white t-shirt. Old clothes that you will not mind getting slightly stained (see below regarding possible staining). We also recommend for students to wear goggles.
Do all students need to run?
The Colour Run will not be compulsory. However, all students are encouraged to participate and enjoy the celebration 🙂.
How is the colour administered?
A running course on The Green will be set up. Designated staff will be stationed along the course to gently dispense colour powder along the way. All colour powder will be aimed between shoulder & hip level.
What is the colour made from? Does it stain?
The coloured powder we are using is made from 99% corn-starch and natural food grade dyes. We’ve been told it doesn’t stain, but you never know… We feel it would be best to wear old sneakers or opt to run with bare feet. Please note that we do not take any responsibility for costs associated with the removal of colour.
Will the Colour ruin clothes or running shoes?
The colour does wash out after the event. As with anything dirty, the sooner you wash it, the better. We suggest wearing items that you wouldn’t mind getting colourful. Please note that we do not take any responsibility for costs associated with the removal of colour.
