School Busy Bee
This weekend we are holding the school Busy Bee, happening this Sunday 22 October, beginning at 9:00am. Thank you to the parents who have already registered their assistance on the day, by clicking on the link below (which is now working):
We have a list of areas that need to be attended to around the school, so please bring your gloves, shovels, brooms, rakes, blower-vacs or any other equipment you may think could assist on the day.
This Busy Bee is part or the Alcoa grant initiative, where a generous donation has been made to the school to carry out maintenance and improvement duties.
If you are able to assist on this Sunday, even for an hour or so, it would be greatly appreciated in keeping our school looking amazing.

Sharks Swimming Club
The Sharks Swimming is up and running this term. If you would like your child to be able to improve their swimming stroke and increase their fitness, please see the staff in the front office about attending these morning swimming sessions, at Kirby Swim.
The current behaviour focus is for ‘no playing on the playgrounds after 3:00pm’. What this means for students is that after the 3:00pm school bell, the playgrounds are out-of-bounds. Without staff supervision, the playgrounds can be prone to accidents occurring.
Year 6 Bicycle Education
Bicycle Education has continued this week for our students in Year 6. With their competence and confidence growing, they will be all ready to tackle the out-of-school ride scheduled for Week 4 of this term.
Year 5 Camp
Year 6 Excursion
The school’s Friday afternoon Beach Sports program starts up this week, on Friday 20 October, with our Year 4, 5 & 6 classes going to the beach. We hope the participating classes have a great time.
