Craig Cardiff Songwriting workshop - SKs only
The Year 2 students will be joining the primaries in the gym Monday morning for a songwriting workshop with musician Craig Cardiff. Please make sure your SK child is in class by 8am as to not miss any of this great learning opportunity. JKs will enjoy a regularly programmed morning to themselves.

Water Bottle reminder
Please send your child to school with a reusable water bottle. Please label the bottle. The in-class water fountains are no longer working in either of the Kinder classrooms.
Creation Station with recycled materials
Binoculars, dinosaurs, violins, televisions, houses, insect-o-mobiles, water parks, treasure boxes, super cats - you name it, the Kinder students made it with all the recycled goods that were sent to school last week. Keep the toilet paper rolls, paper towel rolls and all kitchen cupboard boxes coming our way. Students are learning through problem solving and innovation using these recycled materials to spark their creativity and imagination.
Please send a note via Communication books to your homeroom team to let us know if you are willing to make some playdough for your child's class.
