Animal Rumble Grumble
Thank you for all your amazing support during the school pantomime Animal Rumble Grumble. Special thanks go to all the class parents who helped organise the costumes and the volunteers who helped dress our little monkeys. I am sure you will agree that it was an incredible show. We are so proud of our Prep students for their incredible performance. Don’t forget you have a chance to buy your child’s monkey costume. Please send in $95HK to your classroom teacher and they will send the costume home with your child. It is not too late to do this early next week.
We hope you are training hard and practicing your sprints because it is not long until our Early Childhood Athletics Carnival. Not only will all our students get a chance to race but so too will the parents. Our carnival will be held on Thursday the 23rd of November. More details to follow in the next few weeks.
Early Childhood Assembly
Next weeks Early Childhood assembly is scheduled on the term planner as a prep assembly. However, with the pantomime Animal Rumble Grumble wrapping up this Friday 20th, we have decided that next Friday’s assembly will focus on mindfulness. The assembly will be run by Mrs Nielsen and Mrs Jones. Student merit certificates will be awarded like normal. All parents are welcome at attend.
