2023 Cross Country Success!

Congratulations to all students who took part in the Cross Country event yesterday. We look forward to announcing the results soon. A special thank you to Miss Uglow and the entire Physical Education team for organising such a successful K – 12 event.

The Disco is this Friday!

The Primary Disco is this Friday!  If you missed out on buying tickets a couple of weeks ago, we still want to see you at the Disco!  Bring your $10 along and you can still join in the fun.

Entry for the Disco will be via the external doors to the Primary Forum, closest to the Kindy gate.  Exit at the end of each session will be via the external door which is between the Year 1 and Year 2 courtyards.

Pre-Kindy to Year 1:  3:30pm – 4:45pm

Year 2 to Year 4:  5:15pm – 6:30pm

Year 5 to Year 6:  7:00pm – 8:15pm

This is a parent-run event to raise money for the end of year celebrations. We kindly ask parents of students in the first session to remain at the school to ensure the safety of all students, especially if they will require assistance during the event. For older students, you are also welcome to stay if you’d like. A coffee van will be on site for refreshments.

If your child has food allergies please assist us to identify your child on arrival so we can look after them.

Additional snacks and glow sticks are available for purchase during the disco (cash only):

Pop Tops, Juice Boxes, Lolly Bags and Chips – $2

Chupa Chups – 50c

Extra slice of Pizza/Cinnamon Scroll (GF / LF)/Megamites (GF / LF / NF) – $5


Term 2 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 2 RUNNING CLUB House Points: (drum roll please…)

Congratulations to PARRESIA House for running the most laps in Week 3! Well done to our PP’s and Year 5’s for the most participants in Week 3. Keep up the great work everyone!

100 LAPS Club

Congratulations to Mikaela Mennie (Makaria parent) who joined the 100 Laps Club by completing 100 laps on the 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.
