TERM 3 WEEK 10 - 21 September 2023

Principal Update

Term 3 has been fabulous! There have been so many opportunities for students academically, creatively and socially and we are grateful to all parents, students and staff for their support. I hope that everyone has a wonderful school holiday break. Students and staff return on Monday October 9.

Art in the Making

Last Friday night we held our Art in the Making Auction. It was a fabulous evening and I am very grateful for the support of staff, our school P&C, local artists and Moruya High School staff and students. I was very excited to purchase the artwork produced by the 2/3 Seals class and Tre Spadoni for my office. It is an amazing piece (as were all of the others). The Seals class visited my office yesterday morning, pointing out their favourite parts and telling me about their creation. 

Movie Night

Tonight our P&C will be hosting a movie night. Come along and enjoy a lovely evening to end the term. We will be viewing the movie Shrek. Please be advised that parent supervision is required for student attendance and that it is an alcohol free event. Come along from 5:30 pm. The movie will begin at 6:30 pm.

Bushfire Management Plan

On Tuesday there were a number of schools in our region which were closed due to a bushfire weather warning. Each NSW Public School has a Bushfire Management Plan based on the risk factors for the individual school. This plan is developed in conjunction with the NSW Rural Fire Service and the Department of Education. Some schools, due to their location and proximity to bushland, will close in advance if there is a severe risk. We do not fall into this category. We have a plan in place which will always be followed and the safety of staff and students is paramount in all situations. Should our school need to become non-operational for any reason we would always communicate with you promptly via our normal communication channels. If you have concerns or would like to discuss this further with me please don't hesitate to contact me.

Enjoy the rest of your week and holiday break.

2/3 Seals - "Our Connections" Art in the Making

Deputy Principal

If you have ever had the privilege of collecting your child at the end of the school day you will be familiar with the buzz in the air in the Lilli Pilli area as students, families and staff all congregate to depart school. 

With so many people in this area, we are mindful that this area can be a little chaotic at times.  We’ve put our collective heads together and have pulled together some processes to ensure our students are safe as they leave school.  

These processes include:

  • Students that exit school using the Evans Street crossing will be met by a member of staff and will be escorted to the Evans Street crossing.  This is particularly important as the parked cars on Evans Street often obscure the views for not only pedestrians but also for drivers.
  • Students that use the Murray Street crossing will be asked to meet the teacher allocated to crossing duty in the Lilli Pilli area rather than heading directly to the crossing.  The supervising teacher will escort students to the crossing and ensure that this group safely crosses to the Golf Club car park.  If you are waiting for your child on the Golf Club side of Murray Street please be patient as we are asking students to wait and cross as a group.
  • Any students that wish to walk towards the preschool on Evans Street should also be using the Murray Street crossing.  The intersection of Murray and Evans Street is particularly busy at the end of the school day with many of our buses queued ready for pick up.
  • Students waiting for buses are asked to wait quietly in their bus lines and our Bus Captains, supported by our staff, will keep a close eye on students until such time as each bus arrives.
  • The process for any students attending After School Care will be exactly the same as it has been.

We want to thank the school community for your co-operation with these processes.  The safety of our students is of course our main priority.  Which brings me to my last reminder, one that focuses on sun safety.  All students need to wear school hats when outside in the playground, including during any class sports activities.  We have all struggled over the last few days with the jump in temperature – wearing a hat goes part way in ensuring we are sun safe.

Kitchen Garden Working Bee - Was a great turnout on the 6 September with lots being achieved in the garden.

AFL Skills Clinic - 5/6M - In Week 8 and 9 Stage 2 and 3 were invited to challenge their AFL skills in a skills clinic. MPS students learned how to handle, catch and direct the ball using their hands, and kick the ball with direction to a distance. Students played games to test out these skills including handballing a ball to each other, kicking a ball through goals and racing other teams in ball skills.

NSWPSSA - Primary Golf Championship - This week Ryan in 5T has represented MPS the NSWPSSA - Primary Golf - Championship 2023 at Catalina Golf Club in Batemans Bay. Ryan was competitive in the competition and finished the championship ranked 18th in a strong field. Great job Ryan!
