Term 4 Week 1…Welcome back!

Crossing duty Week 2 Alanah, Hayden, Yog

Next week- Week 3  Montanna, Sarah, Gavin

Learning: Year 6 students are continuing to find out and inquire deeper into their unit for exhibition. They are making their way through research and answering their own questions towards bringing all this together to present their findings in a way which is creative and reflects their journey of learning. Please support your children in their independent inquiry by asking questions and finding out more. Year 5 students are creating their own planets using a range of scientific laws. Next week there will be a range of yearly testing in different subjects across the school to track student growth throughout the year.

 

Exhibition: Invitations went out yesterday to year 5 families and via seesaw to year 6 families inviting everyone to attend GGLPS first ever exhibition. It will be held on Thursday 2nd  November at 6pm. The students have worked hard over this period of time and it would be great for the school community to support these young people.

 

Yr 6 Celebration Dinner: This will be held on Tuesday 14th November (week 5) at ‘That’s Almora’ in Highbury at 6pm. The dinner will cost $25 a head for all you can eat pizza, pasta and soft drinks. (Alcohol can be purchased separately).

 

 

 

  • Samaritan’s Purse – This year we will be continuing to support the operation Christmas child program which is part of the Samaritan’s purse organisation.  We were involved last year and made up over 100 boxes to be given to children who have very little at Christmas time. Boxes can be bought from the front office for 50c. With your family, you can choose which age and gender of a child the box will be for, fill it with different items that are within the guidelines found on the pamphlet or website, return it to school by Friday 27th October. We will bless these boxes in our school community before sending them to children overseas https://www.samaritanspurse.org.au/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/

 

  • Worship – Friday 20th led by Pastor Greg and Friday 27th led by 2B

 

  • Golden Grove Lutheran Church (GGLC) playgroup – Playgroup is run each Friday of the school term by ChildSafe 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

  • Westfield TTP Christmas Parade – Saturday 4th November 10:00am This year we will be having a group from GGLPS in the Westfield Christmas Parade on Saturday 4th November. The parade will commence at 10am with an expected arrival to the centre around 10:45-11am. We have 50 spots available in the Parade for families of GGLPS to participate.

  • Trivia Night – On Saturday 4th November, the GGLPS community will be coming together for an 80’s themed Trivia Night! So get a group together, dress up in your best 80’s gear and get ready to test your useful (and useless) knowledge! Lots of prizes to be won. Not familiar with the ’80s? General trivia will also be included (but it wouldn’t hurt to prepare for a special ’80s round…) If you would like to come to Trivia Night but don’t have a team, feel free to sign up as an individual or small group and we will help you join a team. Tickets are $10 per person with proceeds going towards robotics equipment. You can have a maximum of 10 people on your table. BYO drinks and nibbles. 7pm for a 7:30pm start. Please pay for your tickets at the front office register now via our website

  • Canteen – The canteen is proving very popular with students right across the two campuses. Grace, the canteen convenor is doing an absolutely wonderful job but needs more help to maintain the wonderful service she is providing. This is a call out (a plea) for help, especially on Fridays. Grace would appreciate any assistance on a Friday, even if it was for an hour or two (help on Mondays and Wednesdays would be appreciated as well). If you can help can you please contact Grace on egraceholmes@gmail.com
    If you can only help once this term, that’s fine – Grace is not after a regular commitment and you could nominate a date in several weeks.
