Monarto Zoo Excursion

The excursion to Monarto Zoo is this Thursday 2nd June.

Just a few last minute reminders.

We would like all students here at school by 8:30am so that we can be packed up and leaving by 8:45am.

We have a full program and a long bus trip. One group will do a zoo explore while the other group has a Cubby Building experience in the morning. Then we have lunch together and swap roles for the afternoon.

Please Note: As the program doesn’t finish until 2:00pm we could be as late as 4:00pm getting back to school depending on the bus trip.

Can you please ensure your child has the following:

  • suitable school clothing and footwear
  • drink bottle
  • healthy food for snacks, recess and lunch.

Comments Off on BUG CLUB!!!


bugclub_advertBug Club is an exciting new Online Reading Program which the school is now accessing.

All the students in this class have been given a user name and password to log into reading books and activities that are appropriate for their reading level. I can check progress of individual students and comment appropriately on their ability to read, comprehend and then answer questions relevant to the text.

Can you please ask your child about the program and get them to show you the site.

They can access this at any time, but any feedback on issues encountered would be appreciated.

We will again be using the Study Ladder Program this year.

A letter has been sent home with information about the site and login and password details for the students.

The program is not compulsory, but compliments and enhances the current classroom learning as homework tasks (particularly in Maths).
