The Scholastic Book Fair - Dino-Mite - will be running from Tuesday 29th October to Friday 1st November in our school hall. The Book Fair works to benefit our school - every book you purchase earns the school points which we can use to purchase literacy resources for our children.
Your child has been sent home today with a Book Fair pamphlet - this has a very small selection of books that will be available at the fair. Please come and check out the huge range during our Book Fair week.
The Book Fair will be open from 8.40 to 9.10 am and 2.45 to 3.15 pm each day. To make this possible, we need at least 2 volunteers to be looking after the Book Fair at these times. If you are able to do this, please let Mrs McRae or the office know asap.
We will finish our Book Fair celebration with a book character dress up day on Friday 1st November.
Starts at 2.15 pm tomorrow as the Yr 2/3 class is putting on a fashion show.

School and Sibling photos
Last week every child received an order form regarding information for their school and sibling photos. Our school photos will be taken on Tuesday 15th October with sibling photos starting at 8.30 am in the hall and class photos at 9.00 am so please do not be late.
Sibling Photographs - this system has also changed and you need to sign a Sibling Photo Booking form for you to have your family photos taken. If there is no signed form, the photographers are not authorised to take a sibling photograph. The school office has Sibling Photo Forms for you to pick up as there was not enough for each family
This year the system is different for ordering photos as it is now being done by PhotoLife and you order and pay for your photos online (no money and orders are to come to school). Orders will be taken 2 weeks after the photo day and when printed the photos will be delivered to the school approximately 5 weeks after the photo day.
Last Friday we were treated to some wonderful singing from individuals, duets/groups right through to the House Choirs and even our own groovy staff choir. The entertainment groups with their acts finished off a great morning. Well done to all our performers as it takes a lot of courage to get up on stage and sing in front of people. Congratulations to the following winners:
Yr 5 - Mya Robinson and David Kilgour
Yr 6 - Lilly Kelcher and Tommy McGeown/Lachlan Criddle
Yr 7 - Mariah Cunningham and Sami Asi
Yr 8 - Annalise Kilgour and Troy Chikowore
Yr 5/6 - Duet/Group - Lilly Kelcher and Paige Strachan
Yr 7/8 - Duet/Group - Annalise Kilgour and Cooper Jones
House Choir - Siena
