Welcome back to a wonderful term of learning and engagement. Looking forward to a great term!! It is everyone’s responsibility to make this school great and we appreciate all working towards a positive partnership to develop happy, bright and resilient children. It is timely to chat to your children about the importance of ANZAC Day particularly in light of world tragedy. There was a lovely photo of one of our students with our donated Bears in the Herald Sun at the start of the holidays. Thank you to all families who donated their much loved bears. Very grateful.
We are pleased to inform you that the burnt classrooms are finally completed and the two Year 4 classes moved back into them yesterday. It is delightful to see all classes settled and they now have a terrific glass sliding door leading out to the deck between the classrooms. Thanks to the Year 4 team for their patience.
Apologies for any confusion caused over the interview date. It was changed at the last minute due to being able to source our PD consultant for the Friday. Interviews are on Thursday 2nd May. Please book in on SENTRAL please. We would like all families to attend.
Friday 3rd is a Pupil Free Curriculum Day. Staff are having professional development about the Seven Steps Writing Program. Please contact Their Care if you wish your child to attend the OSHC Program that day.
Congrats to Allegra in Year 2 who was the sole competitor for the Derinya Equestrian Team who competed in the Victorian interschools championship. Our little Derinya team (Allegra) and her pony Fox Mulder had a great week winning many firsts! Great job Allegra and Fox Mulder.
New 2020 public school zoning has been released today. Please read below for access to the online website. Findmyschool.vic.gov.au launched today shows every school zone across the State. The new website highlights the choice of public schools available to the Victorian community and will be in operation for students enrolling in public schools in 2020. Parents considering enrolling their children in public schools will, for the first time, be able to use findmyschool.vic.gov.au to identify their designated neighbourhood school from the residential address they provide. Our school zone will change as of 2020. The website has been designed for simplicity. Begin by visiting www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au
You can find a designated neighbourhood school by residential address OR searching using the name of a school. The result will show: where the school is located within the zone and the residential address (if provided); information about the school, its region and a link to the school website.
To refine results to the type of school, select ‘Primary’ or ‘Secondary’. There is the option to filter results by year level for secondary schools. To start a new search, simply replace the address or school name. Good news if the zone line crosses your house block - you can go either way!
If you have a question about the website, contact the Victorian School building Authority Hotline on 1800 896 950 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Schools may take students outside their zone if they have space available.
