Primary Communication Notes

ALL PRIMARY
Parent Seminar - Peacewise
There will be a parent seminar held on Tuesday, 5 March in the Atrium from 7pm. All students in the College engage with and grow in PeaceWise principles, and this seminar will strengthen the partnership between families and the College in developing attitudes and behaviours in children.
Pedestrian Safety on McCulloch Street
As we educate and support students to arrive and leave the College safely each day, we need help from our College community and parents to set a good example by crossing McCulloch Street safely by using the marked pedestrian crossings staffed by the lollipop person. Please do not cross McCulloch street in between the buses as it is extremely unsafe. Thank you for assisting us in keeping our College community safe.
Book Fair - Thank you
A big thank you to everyone who supported our Scholastic Book Fair at Know Your Norwest and Grandparent’s Day. A percentage of all sales benefit the library so we were able to select some lovely new titles for students to enjoy. A special thank you to those families who donated a book to the library or the Fiji mission trip. Your support is greatly appreciated. From Mrs Sinden and the Library Team

YEAR 2
Library
This term in library we will be looking at the “Minton goes” series of books by Anna Fienberg and Kim Gamble. These are stories based on a transport theme. Each library lesson we will read a Minton story and children can choose to bring home instructions for making the type of transport featured in the story. Materials are mainly recycled containers.This is a completely optional activity. You can choose to make all the vehicles, none or anything in between. If you do make one, then it can be displayed in the library for the term. Please bring it to school with your name and class clearly labelled. It will be returned to you early next term.
