LIFE EDUCATION VAN
This week, the Life Education Van is on premises. All classes will be visiting the Life Education Van and participating in curriculum based modules focussing on issues around food and nutrition, personal safety, physical activity, cyber safety, safety with medications, tobacco, alcohol and caffeine. Harold the Giraffe, alongside his helper Liz, will help our children to develop relationship skills, positive communication (both face to face and online), problem solving and decision making skills.
FRIDAY AFTERNOON SPORT
A reminder that this Friday marks the first round (due to last week’s wet weather) of the Friday afternoon sport season for our Years 4-6 hockey, rugby league and netball teams. Children will not be permitted to participate if they do not have ALL equipment, including hats and water bottles, and instead, will remain at school to complete classwork. Phone calls are not permitted for forgotten equipment.
Parents, don’t forget we have SJW ‘Supporters’ shirts available for sale in the office!
We once again remind parents that while Friday afternoon sport season is underway, students in Years 4-6 will only wear their sports uniforms on Fridays. On Mondays during this time, the students will be participating in the Child Safety Curriculum lessons in their classrooms with Mrs Murphy. If you remain unsure of the uniform arrangements and expectations, please see me for further clarification.
PREP ENROLMENT FOR 2018
If you have a younger child, or know of another family wishing to enrol their child in Prep at St Joseph’s Wandal, please complete an enrolment application as soon as possible. Enrolment forms can be downloaded online, or alternatively can be collected form the school office.
Our 2018 Prep parent Information Evening will be held on Thursday, 13th July at 5.30pm and bookings will be taken during this night for interviews.
