Dear Parents and Friends;
AUSSIE OF THE MONTH:
Congratulations to the following students who were presented the Aussie of the Month award for the month of May at assembly
on Friday:
Junior: Xavier L (1/2L)
Middle: Sarah L (3/4 T)
Senior: Ava D (4/5 C)
As always, these children were selected by all staff members (not just their classroom teachers) for exemplary behaviour and
work ethic throughout the month.
CURRICULUM DAY TOMORROW (FRIDAY 5TH JUNE):
Please remember that tomorrow is a School Council approved Curriculum Day and therefore the children are not required to
attend school. All staff will be using the day to update their First Aid training. We take the children’s health and safety very
seriously and as such, every staff member is required to be trained in Level 2 First Aid.
I hope you can all take advantage of a lovely extra long weekend with Monday’s Queens Birthday public holiday.
Kind Regards
Mrs Fran Van Lambaart

PARENTS AND FRIENDS ASSOCIATION
**Bingo!**
Tonight (Thursday 4th June)
is our night to help with the running of Bingo in the Hall. Starting at
6.45pm we assist with selling lucky tickets, serving in the canteen,
helping with tea & coffee and cleaning up at the end of the night. All
volunteers are free to play as we only need to help before, after and
during the breaks. So if you would like to join us, it is a fun – and
sometimes profitable – night!!
If you are interested in coming along please contact
Daniela Teufel via our school Facebook page.
FOUNDATION ENROLMENTS FOR 2016
Planning has begun for 2016. For those
families who intend to enrol their child
for next year, could you please return
their completed forms ASAP. This is most
important as it will enable us to accurately
plan for the 2016 year
Walk, ride, scoot & skate to school
About kids and walking
Children who walk, cycle or scoot to and from school are generally more
active and fitter than children who don't. Walking is also a great way for:
•children to get to know their local areas better, and meet other children
and adults in the neighbourhood
•children to pick up the safety skills and confidence they'll need to travel
independently as they get older
•parents to find time to talk with their kids, without having to focus on
driving
•communities to cut the traffic congestion, noise, and air pollution caused
by our reliance on cars.
For more information contact Council’s Active Children’s Officer,
Kate Beveridge on 1300787624.
HEAD LICE
There have been a number of cases of head lice reported in the
school. It is important to combat this problem.
The only way to do this is if everyone checks their children’s
hair regularly and treat it appropriately. If everyone does this
we stand a better chance of eradicating the problem.
Treatment usually needs to be applied at least twice for
it to be effective.
Boys Under 12 Hockey Team
If you would like to support TJ (and his
team ) as he represents NNGPS at the
National Championships in Perth, there are
still raffle tickets in the office.
STUDENT BANKING
We are really sorry………..
But we are unable to return many unnamed
items of lost property to their owners. Please
check lost property located in the shared area
between the 1/2 and 5/6 rooms.
If an item is clearly named it will be returned
to your child.
Unfortunately unclaimed items will be sent to
charity at the end of term
