Announcements and Meetings:
Due to the small number of attendees at the recent workshop, I will organise another time later in
the term. The workshop is to inform parents of the changes to the Disability definition and
National Data Collection as well as to receive your input to the Quality Standards for Early
Childhood Education. I will also run a session on Dyslexia and Other significant Reading
Difficulties.
The network meeting in Kulin discussed reporting and assessment procedures and the
importance of parent feedback on what is included when reporting students’ achievements.
Issues to do with the new Student Centred Funding model and how individual schools are
tackling this new process.
I will be away on Friday to attend a Tutor training course on Dyslexia. Mrs Shalders will be taking
the Lake Bryde class.
This week the school will be conducting the annual NAPLAN assessments for Years 3, 5 and 7.
The assessments are conducted in the morning sessions. If parents have any concerns or
questions please contact me as soon as possible.
School Photos ReShoot:
The MSP Photographers will be back at our school next Wednesday afternoon, 13th May to
retake all the group photos.
Whole School Photo, Biddy Class, Lake Bryde Class, Magenta Class and Sheridan Class.
Could all students please wear maroon tracky pants/shorts/skirt/skort and their Newdegate polo
shirts with maroon tracky top if cold.
Fun Run:
The Fun Run will be run on Friday afternoon at 2pm. Parents are more than welcome to come
and support their children. Students need to ensure they are wearing appropriate running shoes
for the event.
Fundraising forms and prize forms will need to be returned to
school next week.
Thank you to Helen Steicke for organising our running course.

CAN YOU HELP - : The school is planning to construct metal profiles of students engaged in
sporting activities which are traditionally played by Newdegate. The sculptures will be displayed
on the ground between the school bus stations and the main road.
We need flat sheets of metal suitable for the purpose. If any family has a few spare sheets, roughly
about 2mts by 1.5mts we would really appreciate the donation.
Examples below:
Class Meetings schedule
Mrs Gilmour will be holding class meetings all day next Thursday 21st May.

Mrs Butcher’s to be advised.
Please call the office to make a time.

Eat Well for Less
Quick tip: For the cost of a takeaway meal, you can buy the groceries to
make 2-3 meals at home. Check out the FoodCent$ program: http://
www.foodcentsprogram.com.au/cook-smart/take-on-the-takeaway/
Many people believe that unhealthy foods are cheaper than healthy alternatives but
this is not the case. Your dollars are better spent on healthier foods which are less
processed and are lower in salt, fat and sugar. Due to the convenience and time, we
are relying on takeaway and ready-made meals more than ever before. In fact, the
average family spends $3640 a year on takeaway!
This year’s FOODcents week falls on the 4th til the 9th of May. To get involved, think
of some ways that you can shop smart to save money but still provide healthy meals
for your family.
Some ideas for you include:
•
Plan your meals using a weekly menu
•
Buy in bulk
•
Grow your own food
•
Make the most of leftovers
•
Use your freezer
•
Compare price per kilo
•
Make vegetables the base of your meal, not meat
•
Shop in season
•
Pack your lunches instead of buying them
Cook homemade meals rather than getting takeaway
