More kids have lost teeth.

DOUBLE UP borrowing for the holidays

If you would like to enjoy DOUBLE UP borrowing 
you need to have returned all your books, i.e., have no overdues.

All students should bring their books and library bags
for borrowing this week even if they may miss their lessons 
due to extra special events. 
We will organise their borrowing so they don't miss out.

Fantastic news!!

SBPS has many students finished the 2010 Challenge!!!
and there are still one and a half terms left to read.

 Keep up the great work!
I will put the names of students that are finished in next terms’ newsletter. We are planning on having a celebration for all the kids that are finished in Week 2 of Term 2.

Please encourage your children to find time to enjoy some reading during the holidays.

“DOUBLE UP” borrowing is available for the holidays for children with no overdues.

Our new library is due to start!!!!

This video portrays a library for a larger school than Sandy Beach, but it will give you an idea of what our new library will look like-ours will be a little smaller.

Come along and join the fun @ SBPS's Annual Easter Hat Parade

Yes, it’s that time of year again - our annual Easter Raffle and Hat Parade which is to be held on Thursday 1 April  at 11.50am.

I am asking for donations of Easter Eggs to make up as many prizes as possible for our annual Easter Egg Raffle which can be left at the front office. Special thanks to those families who’ve already sent some eggs in, it is greatly appreciated.

Books of 5 tickets to sell will be sent home with all children this week. If you would like some additional books please see the office.
All books and money must be returned by Friday 26th March to be included in the draw.

Thank you for your anticipated help.
