Parents and Carers are invited to attend our School Open Morning
on Thursday 25 October 2012 from 8.00am to 10.00am
. This is an opportunity to view your child's work and enjoy performances by the School Orchestra and Choir.
The process of placing students in possible class structures for 2013 commences this term. As a government school we take enrolments from Kindergarten to Year 7 throughout the year and our numbers fluctuate. This necessitates the school running a number of possible structures up until the next school year commences. Importantly, the teachers meet throughout fourth term to follow a comprehensive process, looking at a number of criteria, including academic, social and behavioural.

CASH FOR CANS
Our school has registered for the City of Vincent "Cash for Cans" initiative. The scheme will run until the end of the year, and for each aluminium can collected the school will receive 10 cents to a maximum of $2,000. A recycling cage is located at the entrance to the Junior School staff carpark, please deposit your used aluminium cans in this container.
In Term 4 each year, the students from Pre-primary to Year 7 enjoy weekly sessions of contemporary dance, provided by the Edudance company dance teachers, in our undercover area. Dance allows students to gain life long skills in a cooperative environment with their peers, and the program is also a component of physical fitness for students. The program culminates in a series of performances for the parents at the end of term. Jen Townesnd

Existing families continuing care must return their enrolment form by Friday 15 November 2012 to retain their existing care arrangements or if you wish to cancel care complete a Notification of Cessation of Care Form

New families have until Monday 4 December 2012 to submit completed enrolment forms.
Due to strong demand, all families are advised that enrolments will be processed in accordance with OSCA Enrolment Policy. This means that consideration will be given to the order that enrolments are received, existing arrangements, priority of access and processing guidelines.
