Mrs Miller is currently travelling through Europe with her husband and friends.
She has been having a fantastic time visiting lots of amazing places and eating at
lots of restaurants. So far she has been to Greece and Italy and she’s been doing
lots of walking.
We have had exciting news at Wandina this week, the Education Department is
providing us with a purpose built Kindy so we are now taking enrolments for a
3 rd Kindy group. We are also getting a library and a staff room because all
classrooms will be in use next year.
Mrs Miller will be back at the beginning of term 4 and she wishes all the children
and their families a safe and happy holiday.

School Faction shirts
Please remember that students are only required to
wear their Faction shirts on their sports day. Please
check with your child’s teacher if you are unsure as
most students should wear them on either a Monday
or Tuesday. Mr Power’s class is the only class that has
sport on a Thursday.
After school play
Just a reminder to parents that if you choose to stay
for a short time after school and allow your children
to play on the playground equipment, parents are
responsible for the supervision of their child as the
Department of Education will not accept any
responsibility for injuries that occur after school has
ended. Teacher supervision will occur in the primary
school until 3:10pm but they will not be supervising
the playgrounds. The cleaner will lock the side gates
at 3.10 so you will need to exit by the front gates if
you choose to stay longer. Thanking you.
Car Parking reminder
Just a reminder that you need to reverse park in the
car parks when picking up or dropping off students
because it is difficult to see young children moving
behind parked cars.
Thanking you for helping to keep our children safe!
Interschool Sports Carnival
Mrs Trump, Mrs Ridgeway and Mr Power were very
impressed with the behaviour of all children who
attended the Interschool Sports Carnival on Thursday.
Our athletes were very competitive and were placed in
a number of events. Congratulations to all those
children who represented Wandina Primary, we are
very proud of your achievements. Very special
congratulations to Grace Yokwe, who was Junior Girl
We would ask that parents please talk to their children
about the importance of eating their sandwiches at
lunchtime. It was noted that some children were
throwing their lunches out so we are now checking
lunchboxes before dismissing them to play.
We would like to remind parents that you need to
complete a Confidential Declaration if you volunteer to
help in the classroom. Teachers have copies in their
classrooms for you to complete and they must be
completed and signed before you can help in the
classroom. Thank you.
We have had several incidents of Head Lice this term
so we ask that all parents please check their
child/children/all family members’ hair over the
holidays, then daily for one week and commence
treatment if necessary. Please ensure that you
remove all eggs after treatment and continue
checking and recommence treatment if required. If
you have difficulty getting rid of Head Lice please
contact Community Health for advice.
Mrs Gratte has been completing her final teaching
practice this term in Room 1 with Miss Starling.
She has demonstrated that she is a very competent
teacher and we wish her all the best in her

Friday the 17th of October and every Friday thereafter
We are still in the process of forming a volunteer

firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively a
volunteer roster will be available in each class from
tomorrow for parents / grandparents/ caregivers to
sign up if they wish. The menu will be available on
the app and webpage from term 4. Orders can be
done, either in advance by putting them into the
class canteen drop box (correct change please) or
taken directly to the canteen on the Friday between
8.20 and 8.50am. The P&C would like to thank
everyone for their continued support, without it this

In the near future the P & C will be displaying some
boards in the hall to show where our fundraising
efforts are being used.
Term 4 will be busy for the P & C as we will be
arranging a Disco, and helping with the organising of
the Carols by Candlelight. Dates on both are yet to be
