Term 2, Week 3

Image
Good afternoon everyone,  Welcome to week 3!  What a tragic day yesterday was! Not only did I forget to do my SuperCoach trades and Rob Blechynden’s average team beat mine. But the Shockers had a shocking second half and lost to the Eagles.  Anyway, lucky there is more to life then football……………apparently  Before School Activities: We are so lucky to have such fantastic, giving specialist teachers at OLC.  At the moment your children have the opportunity to join in: Choir - Tuesday mornings with Mrs Sherborne at 8am in the Library. Running Club - Wednesday mornings with Mrs Sinclair at 8am on the oval. Students are to bring sneakers. Dance Club - Friday mornings at 8am with Mrs Haines in the Hall! Community Support: Dear OLC Community, As you know one of our family's recently suffered the unexpected loss of their husband and father in February this year. Dave Clift was husband to Annmarie and dad to Violet in Year 5H, and to former OLC students Damon (17),

Term 2, Week 2

Welcome to week 2! Massive weekend just gone! You know what I am referring to Rob Blechynden! The Dockers PUMPING the terrible Kangaroos. Robbies team didn’t go to well either. Wheelie, Walkie, Waste Free Wednesday: I f possible, please send your child to school with a waste free lunch tomorrow and each Wednesday for the rest of the term. It's a great initiative that instills sustainable behaviours in all of us. Another great way to get behind this initiative, is to walk or ride to school. If you are too far from school, walking from the church may be a way for you to partake.  Laptops: It is super important that these are coming to school with sufficient charge to last the day. Tuesday to Friday during our Reading Groups the students must have access to their laptops as all of their activities are undertaken on their laptops, not to mention the times during other lessons where they are required. Eucharist Dates : These were included on our Homework Grid last week. If your chil

W elcome to week 6, I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We had our commissioning mass yesterday morning. It was a great way to welcome the new staff members of OLC. Swimming: Swimming lessons begin Monday the 8 th  of March and run for 2 weeks. The classroom will continue to run as normal with a slightly adjusted timetable to fit in around swimming lessons as well as the adjusted specialist timetable. We will be travelling by bus with 4DEL to Old Dunsborough Beach and leaving school at 11:40am, as our lesson time is 11:55am. The students will have a 40 minute lesson each day. Our E.T.A. back at school is 12:50pm.    SPORTS UNIFORM may be worn each day for the next fortnight.  Please note, that your child  must come to school wearing their sneakers, not thongs . Your child can wear their bathers underneath their sports uniform if they are comfortable but as our lesson is later in the day, they will be given time to get changed before we depart.   Please take the time to che

G ood afternoon and welcome to week 3! I hope that everyone had an awesome weekend with the weather being absolutely marvellous ! Homework: Please make sure that homework is completed for Friday morning. I noticed that many homework grids were not signed. Could you please go over the grid with your child each week and sign it before Friday morning. PAT Testing: This week we will begin our series of formal PAT assessments which will help further inform our understanding of your child's learning needs, as well as guide groupings within the classroom. The students will be noting in their homework book the days these tests will take place. They do not need to prepare for these in any way, however it is important that they get a good night's rest each day to ensure they are refreshed and ready. Headphones : These were an item on our book list and are necessary. If your child did not receive them or bring them in can you please organise a set to come in as soon as possible. As

Term 4, Week 8

W elcome to Week 8 everyone. I can not believe that there is only 2 weeks left!! In what is already a crazy, it got even more insane for me on the weekend. A reckless driver drove into my car at around 140k’s on the freeway yesterday coming home from Perth. Pretty full on but got through mostly unscathed. St Vinnies: It's that time of the year again where we begin collecting Christmas goodies for members of our community less fortunate than ourselves. We have been asked to bring in toiletries: shampoos, brush, toothpaste, toothbrushes, lip balm, sunscreen, moisturisers, soap, perfume etc.  Thank you for helping to make someone’s Christmas a little more special this year. Year 4 Christmas Concert Dress: As mentioned in our last school newsletter, the students have been asked to wear Christmas colours to the upcoming concert on Tue 8th December. Can I ask that the Year 4’s add a little ‘Aussie Christmas’ flair to their outfit for the night? I have discussed with the children that if
