Letterbox – I have had very positive comments about the recent photo in the Peninsula Post – It is great that learning can be this authentic – problem, design and build.
Student Records – We have been reviewing out student records and have found that we do not have immunisation information on many students. Next week we will be sending home the emergency contact update forms which have a space for immunisation information and permission to administer paracetamol when deemed necessary. Once all the updated sheets are in I will send out an updated phone tree.
Thanks to Janine and Sam who spent a morning in the school gardens. They are looking 100% better.
We have some baby palms to pot up for selling at markets etc. If you have surplus small pots please let me know.
This group will be meeting soon and are after some fresh fundraising ideas. Please give this some thought and watch this space for their meeting date.
