Winter has arrived in all its glory over the past week. Hopefully you had the opportunity to take your children to experience snow this long weekend. Those experiences we have in childhood stay with us forever and are sparks for further learning, inquiry and adventure.
With the uptick in cold weather I again implore all parents and carers to please label all jumpers and jackets. Our lost property is growing daily with unclaimed apparel, and it is much easier for us to return directly items of clothing when they are clearly marked.
You may have seen recent posts on our social media of some of the amazing visual art being undertaken at school. One activity that was of particular importance was the collaboration between Ms Hardinge, Susan and Aunty Vicki using kelp as a material with some of our students. It was wonderful to see our Aboriginal students connecting with their culture, as well as our non-indigenous students developing an understanding of culture through art using material from the natural environment.
Our cross country involvement at the Tamar Association carnival was excellent and our students participated with great enthusiasm. Many ran better than at our own carnival and enjoyed the experience of competing against some tough opposition. We are hoping to combine with Port to be able to support the students who would like to test themselves at the State Cross Country. We will have more information around this as soon as details come to hand.
Finally, we are starting to approach the official reporting phase of term. Student reports and parent teacher interviews will be conducted and sent home in the last week of term (P-6). There have been some changes to the reporting format for this year and we will send out some information regarding the next few weeks.

Congratulations to the students who qualified for the TPSSA Cross Country Carnival. Some of these students competed at Beaconsfield Primary School last Wednesday. It was a great day and it was amazing to see students represent our school so proudly.
At 12 noon on Wednesday last week, it was the half way mark of Term 2. The class celebrated by watching Sonic the Hedgehog and making purchases from their class kiosk.
