5/6 Sausage Sizzle This Friday

This Friday the 5/6 team is organising a sausage sizzle to support one of our students, Jake in 56A, who has been selected to represent Victoria and Berwick Fields at the National School Swimming Championships in August. You can read more about Jake’s fantastic efforts in this article from the Berwick News.

To help with the cost of attending, a sausage sizzle has been organised for this Friday lunchtime (24th June). Each sausage will cost $1. We are happy to cook an alternative for those students who have dietary or cultural requirements (cost will be the same). If you want to order sausages, can you please complete the form that went home today and return it to school by this Thursday.

Blogging Info Night Postponed

Dear Parents,

Unfortunately it appears our blogging session tonight was not convenient for parents so we have decided to postpone the session until next term. We had two families RSVP for tonight, but many said they would like to see the session at a later date.

Don’t forget in the meantime you can check out what is happening in our classes online:
56C – http://56c2011.global2.vic.edu.au
56D – http://56d2011.global2.vic.edu.au

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Regards,
Dale and Jackie

Parent Blogging Session

This note will be going home tomorrow (Monday 21st).

Next Tuesday, 29th March we would like to offer for parents a parent blogging ‘how-to’ session. At our information night last year many parents expressed that they would like to learn more about how to keep up to date with what we are doing online. We are only too happy to help and would love to provide this opportunity for you.

At this session, we will talk about why we see this online environment as an important classroom tool, and will show you how to access the blog as well as locate and search for information. We would also like to show you how to interact with our classroom from home by posting comments and questions on student work, activities and tasks.

No experience is required for this session, just an eagerness to learn. We will be meeting at 6pm in the Multimedia Lab at school. If you would like to attend, can you please RSVP on the attached slip so we know how many to prepare for.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us. If you would love to attend but can’t make the date, please let us know so we can see what we can organise.

Regards,

Dale Mills and Jackie Young

Camp Information and Medical Forms

camp

This afternoon at our assembly we found out information all about our camp to Cave Hill Creek in two weeks, and what to do to get ready. The students will have brought home this afternoon two important notices about the camp.

The first red notice contains a wide range of information about the camp and includes a list of items to start organising to bring on camp. You can download a copy here.

The second yellow notice is the camp medical information form. This is the permission notice for camp and is where you write all the important information such as emergency contact numbers. You can download a copy of this form here.

If you have any questions about the camp, please don’t hesitate to ask!
