As we come to the end of Term 1, it is important that we celebrate our accomplishments, our community, and give thanks for God’s love in our lives. Unfortunately, we are sometimes so distracted by our busyness that we don’t stop to celebrate. Each day holds a moment worth celebrating and we thank God for the many blessings of Term 1. Our students should be very proud of what they have achieved in Term 1.
Read Write Inc Our students, teachers and Learning Assistants have now completed their teaching of the initial weeks of our Read Write Inc program. From next term, students in Years 1-2 (and a number of students in Year 3) will begin to bring readers home that are aligned to their developmental level. We would love for you to reinforce the sounds that we are learning in class using this video to guide you: https://schools.ruthmiskin.com/training/view/ApWBhzsO/x3fOhqOa Sound blending is the next step after children have mastered learning single sounds. Watch this video to learn more: https://schools.ruthmiskin.com/training/view/9NyTnDi3/VHfgTgft We have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of our new reading program. We look forward to making new groupings for next term, reflecting on how far students have come and starting the next part of the program (which involves more explicit teaching of spelling, editing, writing, reading and comprehension). Keep an eye out for updates to the Parent Lounge information videos, as there are a few new ones coming to keep you informed about Read Write Inc.

Dear Parents, I am thrilled to serve your child as their Teacher Librarian this year. I look forward to helping them become a critical thinker, enthusiastic reader and skillful researcher. The Library would like to welcome parents to visit during the Parent/Student/Teacher conversations Thursday 31 March from 3-6pm. Parents are welcome to come for a drink and a cookie and say hello to the new Teacher Librarian, Mrs Stephens. Take a look at the ‘new look’ picture book room and the new releases in the Library. As the April holidays are approaching, parents may borrow extra books for their child’s holiday reading. You might also like to collect a Mr Popper and his Penguin book as part of the school’s Family Reading Challenge. If you cannot visit during this time the Library is open to parents before school Monday to Thursday from 8-8.30am and after school from 3-3.30pm. Parents may access the Library catalogue from home here. I look forward to meeting parents and your children. If you would like to contact the Library, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org Many thanks Donna Stephens
Family Book Club has started again. We will be reading Mr Popper's Penguins. You may borrow this book from the GLAD Centre as a special, month-long loan to read with your family. On Thursday 2 June, we will come together with students and their families in the GLAD Centre from 3.15 pm-5.00 pm to watch the movie. Please bring a comfy pillow and blanket to snuggle in with while you watch the movie.

A brilliant sunny and dry day greeted our amazing stable of runners last Monday. Hats, sunscreen and water bottles were the order of the day as our intrepid students ran, bounced, huffed, puffed, staggered and managed their way around our newly developed course. Magnificent efforts by all our children, wonderful support from our incredibly attentive and involved parent and friend body, and amazing consideration and grace from our supremely talented staff. Thank you one and all for a wonderfully run and supported event.
Firstly, we would like to thank everyone for their understanding regarding the temporary closure of the Uniform Shop in Term 1. It is with excitement we are able to open our doors again and welcome you into the shop for any purchases you would like to make. A reminder our uniform hours are: Monday 8am – 9am Wednesday 8am – 9am, 2.30pm-3.30pm Orders can still be placed via Flexischools and sent to your child’s class as normal. OUT OF STOCK ITEMS – Boy’s Formal Shirt Size 8/10 We are currently awaiting our order of size 8 and 10 Boy’s Formal Shirts. Due to Covid isolation shutdowns in the warehouse, and the recent floods, there have been some delays on production (as seen in many other industries). We have been advised by the supplier that their warehouse was one of the many in Brisbane that seen extensive water levels and therefore extensive damage. As more information on the delivery of these items come to hand, we will keep you updated. SECOND-HAND ITEMS As of Term 2, second-hand items will no longer be accepted in Uniform Shop. The unsold stock currently on the racks will be donated to sickbay at the end of Term 1, unless collected by their original owner by 3.30pm Wednesday 30 March. If you do have items you would like to sell, we encourage you to utilise the School Second Hand Facebook page: SPLPS & K Buy, Swap and Sell Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.
