Welcome to Week 6
We are now on the downhill run to the end of Term 4! Where has the time gone? As we continue to push through the busy period of the term, where extra pressure is placed on our teachers, students and families, it is important to remember to make well-being a priority. Please never hesitate to contact your classroom teacher if your child needs any additional support during this time.
Hats and Sunscreen
As we are experiencing hotter weather, it is critical that all students are wearing hats and sunscreen. Any students not wearing hats will be asked to play in the shaded area of the playground. Over the past two weeks there have been an increasing number of students not wearing hats while playing at recess and lunchtimes.
Sunscreen is available for all students to apply before any break. Students are welcome to bring their own smaller tubes of sunscreen if they wish.
Before School Drop off
Just a reminder that before school drop off begins at 8:20. There have been an increasing number of students arriving at the school before this time, being unsupervised. It is for children’s safety that we do not want students out the front of the school before this time. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding this matter. Before School Care is available with the YMCA.
Lions Club Book Donations
Thank you to the Lions Club of Canberra Belconnen for donating new books to our school library. Sadly members from the Lion’s club have been unable to come and present these in person at a school assembly, but we are extremely grateful for their continued support of our wonderful school.
Next Wednesday we will be welcoming our new Kindergarten students for 2021! These students will have an action packed morning at St Michael’s and meet their Year 6 buddies for next year. We are very lucky to have a Year 5 cohort that is very ready to accept the challenge of being the student leaders for St Michael’s in 2021.
We are very excited to have the new visitors come and join us on Wednesday and we will ensure that they feel welcomed into our lovely school!
Fee Structure for 2021
The fee structure for 2021 has come home today and is also available on our website. If you pay by direct debit you will need to increase your debit for 2021, please see Lisa in the Front Office for a new form and for any assistance.
Once again, please do not hesitate to get in contact if you need anything.
