The Weekly Wrap

Congratulations, Well Done and Thanks

  • Thanks again to the Parent Fundraising Team for organising and running the annual Fathers Day Stall on Thursday. We hope all Dads (grandpas, uncles, important males in your lives) were treated to a special day on Sunday.
  • To the Year 3/4 teaching team, parent volunteers and students who attended the camp at Woodhouse Activity Centre last week. I had the pleasure of visiting the campsite on Tuesday afternoon and observed how much enjoyment was being had by students, staff and the parents. A big thank you to the teachers who attended the camp with special mention to Veronica Khalaf who expertly coordinated and organised the camp.  Special thanks too, to the volunteer parents for taking time out of their own family / work lives to support and make the camp a successful one. We are fortunate to have such terrific school and family support for school camps, which can have such a positive influence on: relationships, the development of social, independence and decision making skills, environmental awareness and more.
  • Thanks to the Year 2 team and supporting parents who attended the Urrbrae Wetlands Field trip last Wednesday. An enriching experience for all.
  • Thanks to all families who visited the book fair over book week period – once again proving very popular.
  • Great work  by The Green Team, receiving their encouragement award from the City of Onkaparinga – pics shared on Facebook.
  • Well done to all involved in a successful season of winter sport (Soccer and Netball) which comes to a close. Thank you to all coaches, managers and supporters for your efforts, and not forgetting the players who have represented their school with pride.

We want everyone in the community to know about asthma, good asthma control and prevention. We want everyone in the community to be empowered to take steps to prevent and treat their asthma and to educate others, But we can’t do it alone.
