*There seem to be a lot of students inside classrooms (including the library) and the corridor during morning and lunchtimes.  THIS MUST STOP!  If you are thirsty – use the water fountain, if you are hungry – eat the food your parents have given you for each break time! If you need to go to the toilet – use toilet next to room 4.  There will be consequences for students who are caught inside without permission from a teacher.

Production – Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
*This is it!  Production week!!

*Last week our goal was to use our common sense, this week our goal it to show COURTESY.  Courtesy is where you show: ‘excellence of manners or social conduct and demonstrate polite behaviour’.  This will be so important this week as we have a big week of production performances.

It is so important to be ‘better than our best’ when there are relievers in the classroom.

We expect that bookwork be done to a high standard.  You need to have ‘PRIDE’ in all of the work you do.

* Free Parent Access!

Please ensure that your child is the only one to access and use their account.

·      4 C’s:
* Last week’s goal was ‘Co-operation’.  It was great to see most of the students co-operate with each other and teachers through production preparation.  This week’s goal is to use Common Sense  - things that are ‘normal around our school’ e.g. walking in the corridors, picking up rubbish (even if it’s not yours), letting others through the door ways, looking after your own property and respecting others’ property etc.
