LIBRARY NEWS Sad to say: “All borrowers- staff, students and parents –TIME’S UP!!” All books need to be returned to the library for stocktake. Outstanding books make it very difficult to conduct a thorough stocktake. Please help you children locate any SBPS books. It makes a huge difference to our education budget if we do not have to replace books that are misplaced. Do not feel embarrassed if books have been at your place for a long time. We are still very happy to have our books back.
A big congratulations to all students in classes: 1J, 2H, 4M, 6LC. They have NO OVERDUES! Well done! Thanks parents/carers for your support throughout the year, especially to those who helped by assisting with library duties. Your help was most appreciated.
The National Curriculum Board has developed an online feedback and consultation system so that you give feedback on the Board's curriculum framing papers through completion of a survey or uploading a submission. As the Board releases new papers there will be further opportunities to contribute to feedback online.
For Bike Safety Day our students dressed in bright colourful clothes-to emphasise being easily seen when riding their bikes. Students combined this day by bringing a gold coin donation for children in Vanuatu. The school councillors organised this fundraiser. The students were also invited to decorate their bikes. What a sight they were!!
Below is a link to a memorandum that is in the current "In Principal" concerning the replacement of the "Filtered internet browsing service". Some primary schools have already been using the new "environment", the rest of us will be changed on November 24th. This will result in the "Web Filter Check" tool in the portal being moved to a new location within "My Applications"
Don't forget to get those swimming notes back to Mr Potter. We want all year 2 and up Sandy Beach kids to be able to swim. It is a great exercise and it's so COOL in the pool on the hot summer days!! Have you brought your note back yet?
Congratulations to Kye Duncan on his selection to represent Australia as a Public School Sport's Association athlete at the Pan Pacific Games. Over 35 countries will be represented at these games. What an exciting time for all of his family!! We all wish you well.
Sandy Beach Public School held a mufti day to raise money to help Kye meet some of his many financial costs. The staff and students raised over $500.
