Inter House Swimming Carnival
Our school Inter House Swimming Carnival is taking place tomorrow, 17 February, at the MARC, for all students in Years 3 to 6. The students have been allocated events to swim in, based on the results of the trials held last week. A program of events has been sent to families last Monday, so please read this to see the schedule of events.
Parents are welcome to come down to the MARC, to support the students and cheer for their House factions, throughout the day. At the conclusion of the carnival, students are permitted to go home with their parent(s), but must be signed out with their classroom teacher prior to existing the MARC.
Parents will not be permitted in student section of the stadium. However, the students will be permitted to sit with their parent(s) during the lunch break.
The weather is looking to be a fine day, which will be great for the carnival. I wish all of the students the very best and hope they enjoy the day as they try their hardest swimming for their house factions. Good luck, also, to our House Captains (pictured below) as they strive to lead their Teams to victory.
Parent E-Safe Cyber Safety Session
Last night, the school hosted a Cyber Safety session for Parents. The session was facilitated by guest speaker, Kayelene Kerr from ‘eSafe Kids, who discussed the use, trends and dangers of the internet by our children. She also provided some fantastic strategies for parents on how to monitor and support their child’s use of the internet and how to promote their safety in the digital world. I thank all of the parents who took the time to attend the session; I hope you found the content and suggested strategies practical and useful.
I thank Ms Kerr for presenting her workshops to the parents at St Damien’s and also thank Mr Hazebroek for organising and coordinating this worthwhile event.
Parents are encouraged to visit the school’s term planner on a regular basis to ensure you are informed about upcoming events during the year. The term planner can be accessed by clicking on the following link: School Events Calendar
