Harmony Day 2023
Our Primary School celebrated Harmony Day last Tuesday. Harmony Day is a celebration of our cultural diversity – a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home.
Students have been spending time with their “buddies” over the last couple of weeks, completing ‘Harmony Day’ activities. Together, “buddies” made little paper dolls representing themselves and their culture.
We encourage you to come and see the beautiful display in our Primary Forum before the end of term!
Early Years Literacy Parent Workshop
Our sincere thanks to all parents who were able to attend the Early Years Literacy Workshop last week. We hope this opportunity helped you understand a little bit more about literacy in the Early Years of our school.

Crazy Hair Day – Thursday 30 March
Term 1 Running Club
All students in Kindy to Year 6 and their families 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 individual will be given their own Running Club lapathon card to count their laps every week. Runners will earn 1 Running Club House Point for every lap they complete around the Primary Green. Running Club lapathon cards must be left with Miss Uglow at the end of each session. You will use the same running club card each week unless you have reached 100 laps… after that you will need a new one!
WEEK 8 RUNNING CLUB House Points: (drum roll please…)
Congratulations to CHARIS House for the most laps in Week 8! Follow closely by Makaria and Parresia. We had a total of 108 participants this week. Well done to the Year 5 cohort who had the most participants this week with a total of 20 runners! Keep up the great work everyone!
100 LAPS Club
Congratulations to Jax Richardson (4S) and Darren Thiel (Charis Parent) who joined the 100 Laps Club by completing 100 laps on their running club card.
We will meet on the Primary Green every THURSDAY morning from 8.00am – 8.25am. 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.
Running Club will continue in Week 9 and Week 10 of this term. Happy running everyone!

Are you able to help?
Do you have a recorder lying around home that you no longer use?
We would love to take it off your hands!
Early next term a teacher is travelling to South Africa and will be visiting a school that is needing help with their Music program. They are looking for recorder donations.
If you can help, please drop your recorder donations to the Reception Office before the end of this term.
