We thank you God for the rain to water our gardens and for the farmers to grow our food.
Bless the ‘Mothers’ in our lives who love and care for us.

Assembly– will be held in the Worship Centre on Monday at 2:30pm. Come along and see what is happening in the GGLPS community. Year 1L, 4P, 5/6D will be sharing their learning.

In your child’s take-home bag is a green information sheet and a white permission sheet about our excursion to Golden Fields Playground, on Thursday, 17th May. (We had planned to go on Monday, 14th but the school buses had been double booked) Please sign and return the white permission form to school by Monday.
We are excited to be going on our school bus to the playground, to have a picnic lunch and explore the different playground equipment. You and your child’s younger siblings are welcome to meet us there for a picnic lunch. We are praying for a fine day, but if it looks like being a wet day, then we will postpone.
This term students need to wear formal winter uniform on Monday & Wednesday.
Sports Uniform will stay the same, and be worn on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
Girls: white/blue long sleeve shirt, pinafore, maroon knitted jumper, plain grey socks or grey stockings, black shoes
Boys: blue long sleeve shirt, maroon knitted jumper, grey pants, grey socks, black shoes.
Please no mixing and matching uniforms. J (I.e. No short sleeve shirts with winter uniform)
While hats are not compulsory in Term 2 and 3, we still encourage the wearing of them.
There is a changeover period at the beginning to term 2 where students can choose to wear either correct summer or winter uniform depending on the weather. As a guide, 1st June is the cut off for summer uniform, after that winter uniform is to be worn.
We are starting students on Jolly Words over the next few weeks. It is important students say each sound before blending the sounds together to say the word. “c, a, t – cat”
Please keep the Jolly Words book in the purple Jolly pouch in your child’s take home bag.
Here is a great YouTube that shows blending the sounds together to make simple words.
Introducing QKR – Qkr (pronounced ‘quicker’) is available now to download from the APP Store or Google Play. QKR is an APP designed to let you order and pay for a variety of school items securely, and will include canteen orders (coming soon) and other items. This alleviates the need to bring correct cash to school and allows you to order at a time and place that suits you. With QKR, you’ll receive your receipts on the app and have the option to receive them via email. It’s quick and easy, and once set up takes a short amount of time to make purchase at the click of a button. Links are provided on the website to help you get started.
Golden Grove Lutheran Church (GGLC) playgroup – Playgroup is run each Friday of the school term by Child Safe volunteers of GGLC and is open to all within our church, school and wider community. Playgroup begins at 9:30am with mainly music, followed by a fruit snack and playtime. Gold coin donation.

News talks: In your child’s News talk folder there is a new activity to discuss with your child and fill in. As we start our new Unit of Inquiry we will be looking at ‘Who We Are’- Our focus question is ‘What are your hobbies?’ What activities does your child do out of school hours?
Unit of Inquiry: Who We Are: Everyday people learn more about themselves and others.
We pray that all the ‘Mums’ are spoilt on Mother’s Day but are also appreciated every day!
