Student update forms
At the beginning of term students were sent home with student update forms (printed on pink sheets of paper). Please return these to school as soon as possible with any updates noted or signed as current and correct.
As our teachers are unable to carry out parent classroom meetings scheduled for week 3, they will be contacting their parents to advise how they will be forwarding 2022 classroom information.
Download the current term planner here. Things are obviously changing all of the time at the moment – we will inform you of any updates and changes as they happen.
Edudance classes have now commenced and will continue throughout the term.

Crunch & Sip
The Crunch & Sip program is an initiative to encourage healthy eating practices. Please send your children to school with an extra serve of vegetables or fruit to eat in the classroom in addition to those that you include in their lunchboxes. Check out the flyer for a few ideas and the dos and don’ts of Crunch & Sip.
If you are looking for some inspiration for your children’s lunchboxes take a look at the Crunch and Sip website – https://www.crunchandsip.com.au/healthy-lunchboxes There are plenty of ideas and recipes to choose from. Why not start next week’s lunchbox adventures with some bread sushi?
- 1/2 carrot, grated
- 4 leaves lettuce
- 1 tbs low-fat mayonnaise
- 4 slices wholemeal or multigrain bread
- 1 125 g can tuna in spring water, drained
- Mix the tuna and mayonnaise.
- Cut the crusts from the bread and gently roll with a rolling pin to flatten.
- Leaving a 1cm gap at the edge top each slice evenly with a lettuce leaf grated carrot and then the tuna. Roll up firmly and slice into three Sushi rounds.
Add avocado for a creamy alternative and thin cucumber strips for crunch.
