Tomorrow, Wednesday 2nd Sept, the parents and friends are running a Father’s Day Stall. If your child would like to bring along some money to purchase a gift for Dad, they can. We suggest they also bring along a plastic bag or towel to place the gift in.
Also, this Friday, the school is hosting a Father’s Day breakfast. I’ve attached the note for you to return to school if you would like to attend so we can make sure there’s plenty of food for everyone.
Today we had our Book Week dress up day. It was great to see everyone dressed up as their favourite book character. To start off the day we had a fashion parade where the whole school got to show off their costumes. Here are some pictures of us all. Can you guess which book characters we are?
On August 31st, Bourchier St is running an information session about the BYOD program as well as a Cyber Safety talk. The talk will kick off at 5pm with the BYOD info session and then at 5:30pm will be the Cyber Safety talk. It would be great to see lots of families coming along to both sessions, but particularly the Cyber Safety talk as we are currently looking at Cyber Safety in the class and it would be great to see families supporting this by coming along so you can have discussions with your child about it.
A note went home last week with a slip at the bottom for you to return if you are coming, just so we have an idea of numbers. If you would like to attend one or both of these sessions, please make sure you fill it out and bring it back to school. Alternatively, you can register that you’re coming online at bourchierps.vic.edu.au, down the bottom of the webpage.
On Friday 28th August, Bourchier Street is once again holding a Book Week Day where students are encouraged to dress up as their favourite book character. There will be a fashion parade at 9am out on the asphalt before the students will break off into groups to complete some fun activities about books. In the afternoon at assembly, the winners of this year’s Children’s Book of the Year Award will be announced as well.
Parents are invited to join us for the fashion parade next Friday and you are also welcome to come along to the assembly as well.
I hope everyone has started to think about their costume and get it organised. I can’t wait to see what everyone comes dressed up as!
Every second Friday afternoon, we get to spend the time with our buddies on the computers. We love spending this time with our buddies and they help us with our blogs and we get to check out what they’ve been doing by going on and having a look at their blogs! Here are some pictures of our buddies session today.
Today JAS went to watch the NED Show. The NED Show is all about teaching kids to never give up, encourage others and do your best. The man told us a story about Ned and while he was telling us the story he did lots of amazing tricks with a yo-yo.
To become a champion at school or outside of school, you need to never give up when things get a little hard or you don’t know what to do. You also need to encourage others because if you treat people how you want to be treated, they’ll treat you back in the same way. By encouraging others, we make other people happy which then makes us happy. Finally, you always need to do your best because it can help us learn. We need to remember that even when we make a mistake we can learn from it, fix it up and keep trying. We all make mistakes and that what helps us learn.
Here is a link for you to check out and learn some cool yo-yo tricks for yourself!
