Principal's (Acting) News 13th October 2022

Welcome to Term 4. I hope everyone had a lovely and relaxing holiday period. The term has started off very pleasingly with the children settled in well and solid learning has been taking place.

There will be a lot taking place in Term 4 including excursions, incursions, Splatacular fun run, Life Education, assessments, reports and best of all Christmas celebrations. If you do not want your child/ren participating in any of the activities mentioned, please let your teacher know.


Our school concert is on 21st November, 2022 at Frankston Arts Centre. Tickets are now available.

Children in P-4 participated in the swimming program last week. It was a fantastic experience for them and they loved it. Thank you to Miss Holmes for organising the swimming program.

CURRICULUM DAY: Monday 31st October
Just a reminder that Monday 31st October will be a student free day.

We are all looking forward to a wonderful term.

Swimming 2022

The P-4s had a massive four days of swimming to begin Term 4!🐠
It started with the excitement of the bus ride which was a first for many! 🚌 😃
Then it was into the pool for some pretty intensive lessons. 🏊
On day 3 students swam in clothes to help them understand what it would feel like if they fell into water fully clothed.
The last day had students rotate through survival skill activities, including how to help others, and also some fun in the aquatic playground. 🆘🙋🏽‍♂️


Division Athletics Carnival

On Tuesday October 5th, seven students represented our school at the Divisional Athletics Carnival. We not only came away with some 1st, 2nd and 3rd places but some personal bests as well. Congratulations to all the students and a special congratulations to Rachel, Yoshi and Alex who will now progress to the Regional Athletics Carnival.

Class of the Week- Week 1: CONGRATULATIONS
M12 had the best attendance with 89% of children at school every day.


We have had notification from the Department of Education that all students who arrive after 9:10am MUST be signed in by an ADULT at the OFFICE. This is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of students.

If your child is running a few minutes late and will arrive before 9:10am, then they can quickly check in at the office to receive a late pass.

We are mandated by the department to monitor attendance and late arrives at school and would really appreciate your support in signing your child/children in and out of school.

The school has again set itself a target to reduce student absence throughout 2022. Please be aware that parents/guardians will be contacted by the school if there has not been a notification of a student’s absence by 10:00 am.

To report a student’s absence please call the school number on 9788 4800 and you will be asked to dial 1 to be directed to the absence line. Absences can also be reported via the school website or on SchoolStream under forms.

Children all around the world are all having nightmares. But, can the BFG and Danielle’s friends manage to lift the blanket of darkness in time and turn all the nightmares back to golden dreams? Join them as they learn about the magpies, the “Parrwangs”, and about how to be good friends.

NEW Uniform Supplier

We have recently changed our uniform supplier. We are now using A Plus Schoolwear. With the new supplier we have made purchasing your uniform easy. You simply log onto the website and purchase your garments. If you choose the deliver to school option, it will be packaged up and delivered to school, free of charge, for your children to bring home.  

There is no actual uniform shop anymore, but the school will have 1 size of all garments for students to try on if necessary, before you place your order.

PSW no longer have any stock as we are going through the changeover process.
