Cancellation of our Carols Night Tonight

It is very unfortunate that we have had to cancel our Carols evening tonight. Advice given from the Chief  Health Office recommends that all outdoor activities in schools be cancelled today due to poor air quality.


Due to the heat, we are unable to move the carols to the hall as we would need to keep the doors and windows closed to stop the smoke from coming in. For the safety of all we are unable to go ahead with the evening.


I am very sorry to all the children who have been rehearsing over the last couple of weeks and to our wonderful parents who look forward to this special event.


Due to the busyness of the term we are unable to reschedule.


Once again I apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.


We will have left over ice blocks for sale in the canteen tomorrow for $2- each


Peace and Christmas Blessings

Year 6 Graduation - Help Required Wed 11 Dec

Year 5 parents, 

Each year, it is the responsibility of the Year 5 students and their families to help organise the Year 6 Graduation Dinner. This year, for the first time, the Graduation Dinner will be held offsite which means the support needed from the year 5 community is considerably less. 

This year, the theme chosen is Hollywood and we need your help to get the decorations ready and decorate the venue. The dinner will be held at the Town Centre Vikings Club next Wednesday, 11 December at 6pm.

We are asking for help with the following jobs:

  • organising decorations - cutting, pasting, gluing, etc (materials will be provided to you)
  • decorating the venue next Wednesday - this will need to be finished by 5.30pm as the event starts at 6.00pm
  • collecting balloons from Lanyon shops and getting them to the venue
  • transporting other decorations
  • possibly clean up on the night from about 8.30pm

If you can help in any way, please email Susan Jones on or text on 0423 345 309.

Thank you in advance for your help to make the graduation a memorable night for the Year 6 students.

Year 6 Graduation Contribution

Year 5 parents, 

Traditionally, Year 5 students are asked to donate a bottle of soft drink or juice to provide drinks for the students at the Year 6 Graduation Dinner (previously held in the hall at school).  This year, for the first time, the Graduation dinner is being held offisite and the donation of drinks is not required.

To enable the Year 5 students to support the Year 6 students in a complimentary way, we are asking for each family to contribute $5.00 towards a soft drink tab at the venue for the Graduation dinner. 

This amount can be paid via QKR and is due Tuesday, 10 December. 

Thank you in advance for your contribution.
