Weeks 1-3: Term 4
We will leave from the library each Thursday at 8:00 a.m. sharp and go to Woodchester Oval.The session will involve stretching and a 15 minute running session. We aim to be finished by 8:30am.
Students who make a strong commitment to the Running Club will be able to participate in a ‘Special Breakfast” held in Term 4.
We look forward to having as many participants as possible.
St Vincent de Paul Clothing Bin
We have a St Vincent de Paul clothing bin which is located near the Flinders St gate on the oval side of the school. You are able to donate all your unwanted goods, quality clothing, manchester, books, kitchenware (no glass items) and childrens’ toys that you no longer need. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the front office.
We are still collecting the ring pulls from soft drink cans. These are donated to Brother Ollie, who uses them to assist in making wheelchairs for children around the world affected by disease and landmines. Please bring them to your class teacher. Thank you.
Recycling batteries is good for the environment. It keeps them out of landfill, where heavy metals may leak into the ground when the battery casing corrodes, causing soil and water pollution. If batteries are incinerated with household waste, the heavy metals in them may cause air pollution.
Remember that you can recycle your household batteries at school. Please deposit batteries in the specially provided containers in your child’s classroom or the front Office.
We can all play our part to reduce landfill and help save the planet.

We would appreciate families with older children to utilise the Kiss and Drive, freeing up parking spaces for the Kindy and Pre Primary families on Marda Way.
