School Stationery

Just a reminder that it is much appreciated if children have their stationery for their learning as early as possible. If you go to Paperplus and quote our school name and room number that your child is in they will be able to give you exactly the right items needed. Also if purchasing stationery is proving a bit difficult please come and see us at school to talk about this in confidence. We have some good options. Regards, Principal

Tip For Parents

Give your child every opportunity to read to you daily. Ten minutes of reading five times a week = 50 minutes of reading time a week.

If you did this for a minimum of 35 weeks a year we have your child engaging in text for 29 hours extra every year! That 29 hours helps your child read better because they do more miles, are exposed to many words, and importantly are exposed to many ideas through the text.

It is a win - win for all concerned!
