From the Principal

Easter Break

 I hope that you had a relaxing Easter break. It always feels strange having this break separate from the holidays. We have a week and half left in the term and we have a lot to get through. Tomorrow the Year 5’s will be undertaking a trial of the NAPLAN online testing as a system check.

Parents Interviews

Tonight is the first time that we have introduced short parent interviews for Term 1. This innovation is designed to enable a short conversation and to allow for the highlighting of one area of improvement. Hopefully both school and families can work on this area together. We have expectations that this process will go well but will review it over the next few days.

Term 1

 We have had a positive Term 1. Student behaviour has been at a high level. The school wide positive behaviour strategies are impacting upon students’ thinking and it is great to see the behaviour of the week being demonstrated by the students.

Rolling out CONNECT has taken some time behind the scenes but has been very successful. We will be improving our usage of this form of communication as the year continues.

I hope that everyone has a great school holiday and we look forward to seeing everyone back for a ‘block- buster’ Term 2.

Thanking You

 Clive Emby

Author Visit

Today we were lucky to have author Deano Yipadee – author of Stink-o-saurus and Jungle Bells Rudolph Smells to come to school to promote his new book Nee Naw and the Cowtastrophe. He put on a great show in the undercover area.
Deano will be signing copies of his new book at Collins Booksellers, located in: Southlands Boulevarde at 4.00pm today if your child is interested.

Easter Raffle and Hot Cross Bun Fundraisers

A Big ‘Thank You’ from the P&C Committee’

Our Easter fundraisers were a great success. We sold over 1800 raffle tickets and more than 150 packs of Brumby’s hot cross buns, making a profit of almost $1000!
Zavier Argent was lucky enough to win 1st prize in the Easter Raffle – congratulations!
Matilda & Lucas Birkbeck received the Easter prize for having the largest hot cross bun order – well done to them!
Thank you to all involved – it’s great to have such a supportive school community.

TRYing and SUCCEEDing

TRYing and SUCCEEDing!

Six (past and present) students from Leeming Primary School participated in the Sanitarium Weetbix TRYathlon on Sunday 25 March 2018, at Wordsworth Reserve in Inglewood.

In the spirit of TRYing, each child completed a SWIM, BIKE RIDE, and then the RUN component of the TRYathlon.  Well done to Lucas R (Year 3), Aaron K (Year 3), Jacob K (Year 4), Emma G-G (Year 7) Fiona G-G (Year 6) and Axel G-G (Year 4).

The students are looking forward to TRYing again next year, with more Leeming Primary School friends welcome to join in the FUN!  Thank you to Miss Thomas who also came down to support the students participating in the event.
