Other programs

Home reading program

Students are encouraged to read at home through a variety of measures.

Every student receives nine brand new books each year from Scholastic Australia in a program called Books In Homes – what great generosity and innovation! See below for more information.

Our Library Information Centre also runs Scholastic Book Fairs twice a year where students can buy great extra reading material for lots of reading at home. The Book Fairs enable us to get 35% free books in commission which means plenty of new books to borrow for home reading.

Students also receive a ‘Reading Log' to keep track of their reading at home and have their parents sign off each night of reading. At 25, 50, 75, 100, 125....300 nights they qualify for awards which can be used in the School Awards Program. Younger students can take specifically levelled books home each night to read with their parents, relatives or friends.

The emphasis is on students reading for enjoyment and spending quality time with their parents, friends or relatives

We would like to thank the many parent helpers who check student reading logs and ensure this program is a success.

Books In homes programme - 'Empowering Kids, Literally'

What a fabulous idea! Our school is very proud to be part of this wonderful program which gives each of our students 9 new books every year.

Every student receives a colourful book catalogue which outlines the books on offer. The students choose their own books from a selection of 48 titles provided by Scholastic Australia. Each child selects 3 books in Terms 1, 2 and 4 to add to their ‘home library'.

Our ‘Book Giving Assemblies' are always great fun with lots of enthusiastic, smiling and happily reading kids. To make it even more memorable for our students we have special guests presenting the books. We have a strong association with our local A League Mariners Club and Scholastic Australia. Several players, coaches and representatives join in the presentations.

We certainly hope that the Books In Homes Programme continues to prosper as our whole student body thinks that it is fabulous!

Breakfast club

Breakfast Club is open every Monday and Tuesday 8:15-8:55am in the school hall. Students enjoy a delicious, healthy breakfast including cereal, toast, fruit and juice. Parents and teachers volunteer their time to ensure this program runs smoothly and is a success. We would like to thank Wyoming Community Centre who have sponsored the Breakfast Club for 2017.

Crunch & Sip

Crunch & Sip is a set break to eat fresh fruit or salad vegetables and drink water in the classroom. Everyday at 10:00am the school bell rings to signal the Crunch & Sip break has begun. Students "re-fuel" with fruit or vegetables during the break, which assists their physical and mental performance and concentration in the classroom. Students are encouraged to bring in fruit and vegetables that are quick and easy to eat. Pre-cutting or peeling is helpful especially for younger students. Students can also have a drink of water from the bubbler or their drink bottle.

Supported playgroup

Our multi-cultural Supported Playgroup runs every Monday from 9:00-11am in Wingello Cottage. The facilitator is Lisa and she engages with and supports families that attend. Families participate in a variety of crafts, games, dancing and singing activites and finish with morning tea. Gold coin donation is appreciated and is open to all to attend.
