Term 4

Welcome parents, guardians and students of Year 6,  Term 4, 2018.

What an exciting final term  of primary school we have planned for your child.

Our inquiry unit of work this term is investigating droughts with our key questions being:

  • Where and why do droughts occur?
  • How do droughts impact our lives? What can we do to minimize it?
  • How do we manage the impact of a drought?
  • How do we minimize the impact of a drought on our lives and the environment? 
  • What can we design to combat the drought effects on our community?

We have STOMP dance from week 5 on in preparation for Graduation, the Summer Cup as year 6 sport, and a major focus on transition and preparing your child for Secondary Schooling.

We thank you for all your support and sharing in your child’s final term of primary school with you.

Kind regards,

Miss Chen, Miss Psaila, Mrs Longman, Mrs Hartney and Mrs Mason.

Year 6 Jackets

Year 6 Jackets Update

The Year 6 teachers are aware of some disappointment caused by the delay in receiving the Year 6 jackets. We remain in contact with Surrey Clothing to ensure that the jackets arrive ASAP.

With made to order production, there is a risk that something may affect the ordering and purchasing process.

In this case, there was an issue with the “standard” bottle green fabric that is used for a variety of school garments.

Although there is always fabric available, the fabric in stock had to be reordered due to a problem with the dye. Surrey Clothing decided the fabric was unacceptable.

We apologise for the delay, which is beyond the school’s control. We have been advised to expect that the jackets should arrive this week.
