    Principal’s Notes

    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.

    Newsletter 14 23nd September 2014

    Congratulations to Mrs Butler and Ibu Sania on a very entertaining assembly.

    The items allowed the school community to hear our amazing choir and also

    see the children playing a variety of instrument including the Angklung, which is

    a traditional Indonesian instrument. The children also taught us some

    Indonesian words. The traditional Indonesian masks and art work on display

    were beautiful.

    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.


    Parent Helpers


    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

    teaching career.

    open and operational from the first Friday of Term 4,

    Friday the 17th of October and every Friday thereafter

    volunteer roster will be available in each class from

    tomorrow for parents / grandparents/ caregivers to

    boards in the hall to show where our fundraising
