As we head into Easter and term one school holidays, we can reflect on a successful year so far. An important focus at South George Town Primary School is the work we do about increasing and improving social skills through our Positive Behaviour Support program. It is therefore, rewarding when we continue to receive positive feedback about the behaviour and attitude of our students. Last week a large group of grades three to six students competed for South George Town Primary School with pride at the TPSSA Athletics Carnival. The staff who were at the event could not have been prouder of how they represented our school. Also, last week, a member of the Red Cross team who had visited our grades three and four classes for the Pillow Case Project, rang the school office to express her delight at the enthusiasm and exemplary behaviour of the students. This ability to get on with others and behave calmly and respectfully allows our students to focus on the most important work of a school, namely, academic learning.
We wish families a happy and safe Easter and term break and thank you for your continued support. We will see you again for term two on Wednesday 26th April.

This year saw 32 entries in the South George Town Primary School Lego challenge displaying an extremely high level of quality and imagination. There were wondrous vehicles, amazing architecture, stunning streetscapes and villainous vagabonds scattered throughout. Unfortunately there can be only one winner in each category and the winners are:
|Age Group Winners
|Overall school Winner
All winners received a medal, a free pass to Brixhibiton, a free pass to the Beaconsfield Museum, a free pass to Leven River Cruises, and a free pass to Richmond gaol. The overall Winner, Georgia, has also been invited to display her winning Lego creation at the Brixhibition Lego event in Launceston in April.
Congratulations to everyone who entered and we look forward to even bigger and better ideas next year!!!
Last week selected students from grades 3-6 competed at the TPSSA Athletics Carnival at St Leonards. Students participated in a variety of events including running, shot put, vortex, long jump and relays. School staff were very impressed with the behaviour and sportsmanship displayed by our students. They demonstrated our school expectations of respect, relationships and responsibility, maintaining our reputation as a great school. Congratulations!
Each newsletter we will be putting the spotlight on one our staff members, so that you can get to know our wonderful South family.
