Week 7

Wow, week 7 already!! This term is flying!!

Please see below for a few reminders for the coming week.

Laptop Intention Forms - These were due today...if you have not already returned your form, can you please send it in with your child tomorrow. I have spares if you have misplaced yours.

Stationery - If you can please check in with your child if they need any stationery - please ask them about exercise books...we are running out and won't have any more to give.  

Gathering Time - Just a reminder that this is an important time for the students to get themselves organised for the day. It is very helpful if you can get them to school as close to 8.30am as possible. In light of them moving into Year 4 next year, we do ask that you encourage your child to be as independent as possible with getting their own chairs, books and belongings sorted.


HOMEWORK - WEEK 7
Reading - If you can please make sure that your child is reading out loud to you each night. 
Spelling - Students are to complete a L…

Week 6

Good morning parents,

Welcome to week 6...I am sure that you are all exhausted after a very busy fete weekend! Thank you to our class reps for all their hard work coordinating everything and a huge thank you to you all for all your hard work!


REMINDERS - WEEK 6
Sickness - You may have heard about Gastro going around.  I have not had any reports from within the class, but the dreaded tummy bug has started to make the rounds here at OLC after having a huge impact at Dunsborough Primary. I am very mindful of how unpleasant this can be to be sick in this way at school so please know that if your child comes to me to mention that they are feeling unwell in the tummy I will ask Mrs Marrell to ring you. I would hate to ask them to wait and then for them to be sick. I am reminding the students to be washing their hands before they eat in an attempt to limit the spread.

I do know that it can be very hard to organise at times, but I ask you to keep your child at home if they have experienced any as…

Good afternoon and welcome to week 9!!

Thank you to those who were able to attend our reconciliation parent meeting and enrollment mass last week.  The kids conducted themselves brilliantly!

Well done also to all the kids for their participation in the Athletics events last Wednesday, Thursday and during our carnival last Friday! I was so proud of the way everyone got in there and had a go!  Yay 3M!

In literacy we are reading and writing poetry. 

In Maths, we have measured the school and are into using these to map the school.  As the photos show, the kids are working very hard on their communication and mapping skills.  They appear to be having a lot of fun too as they are engaged and raring to go!
