  Important days in the week:

   Library: Monday 

  Sport: Friday

  Please note: Student participate in fitness activities each day, so it is important for them to be wearing runners or shoes that are safe to run in every day). 

 Equipment

Please make sure your child has the following equipment:-

  • A ruler with millimetres (no metal or bendy ones please), lead pencils, blue, black and red pens, (simple biro pens with no fancy attachments please as they tend to be distracting), large scissors, glue, sharpener, eraser and coloured pencils enclosed in a small pencil case. Large pencil cases take up too much room on desks. Please label all items.

  • Please provide a box of tissues for the class to use. Thank you to those families who have done so already.

  • Note: no liquid paper / whiteout

 Homework

In preparation for high school, homework is able to be completed online through Google Classroom. For those students without computer access, paper copies can be given. Homework is to be returned to class teachers by Friday morning. Homework includes:

  • Home Reading: Most students in Stage 3 are independent readers who can choose their own books from home and the Library. Reading material does not have to be limited to books but can include magazines, newspapers and is to be for enjoyment. Students must bring in their reading logs, signed by a parent at least once a week.

  • Spelling – students write out their words four times a week, ideally each day.

  • Studyladder – students have a Studyladder account which they can access from home for their maths homework.

Clothing

  • Please provide an oversized t-shirt or art shirt to help keep uniforms clean during art lessons. 

  • Please ensure all clothing, especially hats and jumpers, are clearly labelled.

Absences

It is a Departmental of Education requirement that parents provide a letter explaining a child’s absence from school. You can also use the school app to inform the school of explained absences. Any leave (short or long term or partial ie; part of a day) must have the approval of the Principal. A letter beforehand will assist.
