School Donations – Reminder
As a Board we budget on receiving $50 donation from each child. These donations allow for greater flexibility for us to purchase resources and hire personnel that enhance teaching and learning. The donation is also tax deductible – meaning you can claim one third of the amount back. We would appreciate it if all those that are able could please give this donation.
Informative morning teas
Come along to enjoy a cup of tea and cookie, and learn about ways to get involved at school this term.
Assemblies this term – CHANGE OF TIME
We have made the decision to change our assembly time. There will now just be the one Devotional Assembly on a Monday morning at 9am. School certificates will be given out at this time too now. There will be a full school Learning Celebration at the end of the term for each hub to share their learning. We invite all parents to join us each week to share in this special time.
Eating Times @ RCS
This term the children will have three opportunities to eat during the day. It would be helpful if you could pack your child’s lunch box so they are aware of the types of food they should eat at each point in the day. The first snack should be either fruit, vegetables or nuts. This snack is eaten during ‘Feed’n’Read’. The second snack should be something reasonably substantial like a healthy sandwich or more fruit or vegetables. This snack is eaten straight after the children have their second break. The last point in the day to eat is the lunch break. If your child takes a long time to eat please try to pack food that they are able to eat reasonably quickly, as it is important that the children get enough time to run around and enjoy playing.
We ask that you consider carefully the types of food you send your children to school with, as some types of food are more conducive to good learning than others.
Explore Time – reduced time
Explore time will now finish at 9am. The music will begin to play at 9am, and as you help your child to pack up please guide them towards their maths spaces as they will now begin the formal part of their day in their maths groups.
A reminder that school starts at 8.55am. If you are arriving at school after 9am please ensure you stop in at the office so we know you have arrived.
