Mother’s Day Breakfast, Thursday 10 May, 8am – 10am.
We would like to invite all mothers to attend the Mother’s Day Breakfast. Notes have been sent home and we need all notes to be returned please. Simply state how many people attending, or if you are not able to come. It is very important that we have responses as this allows us to cater appropriately. If there are any fathers who are available to assist in planning this, please contact the Junior School office. Your help would be much appreciated as we seek to make a special morning for the mothers.

Following the breakfast, mothers will be invited to joint their children for an activity in the classroom. If you have more than one child, you will be able to gather all of your children in one room and work together on the activity.

NAPLAN
NAPLAN is an annual assessment for all students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9. It tests the types of skills that are essential for every child to progress through school and life. The tests cover skills in reading, writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation, and numeracy. The assessments are undertaken every year in the second full week in May. If you have any questions about NAPLAN, please speak to your child’s teacher, or Mrs Stewart (Year 3 Advisor).
