With less than a month till we say goodbye to the 2023 school year, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the staff, parents and students this year.
This term has been busy, from incursions to prep transitions, camps and the Grade 6 class preparing for their graduation.
This term, we have welcomed our new preps for 2024. With their grades almost announced and their transition days completed, I hope each child has a happy beginning to the great adventure of life at school.
To all the Grade 6 students. Congratulations on your final year of primary school as you embark on new schools and adventures. Enjoy your graduation and celebrate your achievements and the friendships you have made. We wish you all the best for your first year at high school.
This week, our Grade 3’s and 4’s head to school camp. Thank you to all the staff and the parent volunteers for all your efforts in what I am sure will be a wonderful experience.
And in a couple of weeks, our Grade 2 students go to Mount Evelyn Recreational Camp, where I know they will have an action-packed day.
Congratulations to the Junior School Council for bringing new initiatives into the school. We thank you for all your work this year.
A thank you to all the parents who volunteered their time for the Referendum Sausage sizzle. We are delighted to have a community that supports our fundraising activities.
As we head into the last few weeks of Term 4, there are quite a few things to look forward to.
Firstly, the School Concert on Wednesday 13th of December. With the teachers finalising the class routines, I am sure you are just as excited as I am to see some fabulous performances. A reminder to bring a chair and snacks, and we will also be holding a BBQ.
Our hard-working events committee has organised Mr Fresh Truck Ice Creams for all the students on Tuesday the 19th of December. Enjoy!
And finally, our last fundraiser for the year is 2024 Calendars from Historic Prints in Yarraville. This will make a great Christmas gift, and there are further details on our website on how to order.
In my second year as School Council President, working with the staff, students, and parents of YWPS has been a pleasure. Thank you isn’t enough for everyone who volunteers their time through the Council, the sub-committees and the parents across our school activities and events.
Your generous donations reinforce how incredibly wonderful it is to live in the Yarraville, Kingsville and Seddon communities.
I wish you all the best for Christmas and the new year. I hope the summer holidays bring lots of sunshine, time to relax and enjoy cherished time with your families and friends.
