Biggest Full Moon of the Year

The full Moon of Dec. 12th was the biggest and brightest full Moon of the year.
It's no illusion. Some full Moons are genuinely larger than others and this Friday's was a whopper.

Library Stocktake

Library Stocktake happens in Weeks 8,9 and 10.
Please make sure all your books are back in by Thursday of Week 7.

Engineers of the future in the library on bike safety day.

Wow! Our engineers soon had an audience from the lunch time library users. How much higher can they build before it collapses?

Bikes with plenty of sparkle.

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!!

Bike Safety Course On Our South Oval

Bikes, helmets, markers, road signs, excited kids....Our bike safety day had it all............sadly even rain in the afternoon which meant that our year six classes missed their turn.

New Environment On Its Way

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"
