Primary Schools Festival of Music

It was an exciting, and tiring day on Wednesday 25 August as 47 Mitcham students attended a combined rehearsal in preparation for the “Stars in the Arena” concert on Saturday 11 September.

Students sang enthusiastically through all of the songs and polished the choreography. They enjoyed the spectacular venue and hearing the sound of 1000 combined voices. Congratulations to Sophie I, who will be singing a solo and Jonty who will be hosting two of the performances. Tickets are on sale now through Ticketek. It will be an amazing show!

School Traffic

A reminder to please be aware of where you are parking when you drop off your children, particularly in peak drop off and pick up times.

We ask that you do not obstruct our neighbour’s driveways, drop off your children in areas which are clearly marked ‘No Standing’, block intersections or double park your vehicle which stops the flow of traffic around our neighbourhood. Attached is a copy of the Road Rules for you to peruse. Please note that the school is unable to offer advice or discuss issues related to receiving an expiation notice. Should you have any queries regarding parking control matters please contact Mitcham Council’s Community Safety office on 8372 8870. Many thanks for your ongoing support.

Courtyard Mural

We are thrilled that the courtyard redevelopment is now finished with the completion of our second mural. This mural has an underwater theme which represents diversity and harmony; we are all unique and together we create something beautiful!

 Our students loved watching talented artist, Nick Rix, transform the wall and we think it helps make our new courtyard a wonderful place to be.

Back Pack 4 Kids

Wow!!! What an amazing response we have had from our fabulous school community.

We would like to thank all those families who have already donated items to support our Community Service Project – Backpacks 4 SA Kids. Special thanks also to Drakes Supermarkets who have generously donated a range of items from their stores. 

There is still time to donate as we are extending our timeline for receiving donations until the end of week 4, Friday 13th August. Please give any donations to your child/ren’s classroom teacher.

Thanks to your generosity we will be able to provide many backpacks full of essential items for children who need to quickly leave their homes due to safety concerns or who are experiencing homelessness.

Quiz Night 2021 Update

Due to the recent COVID situation in Adelaide and current restrictions around masks and dancing we have made the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming Quiz Night scheduled for September 18th.

We are currently working with the venue to secure a date for early Term 4, which will hopefully allow time for the COVID restrictions to be reduced. 

We know that many families are really looking forward to this event and are getting table groups together for when tickets go on sale.

The Quiz Night committee are still busy behind the scenes planning this 90’s Music themed night, choosing decorations and especially collecting donations and prizes. 

But you can help too!!

We would appreciate any support that can be offered in the way of donations (items or vouchers) that can be used for our silent auction.  

Items and vouchers can be dropped into the front office or alternatively they can be emailed to Susan.Bowler422@schools.sa.edu.au

From the Library Term 3 Week 3

Our students read a lot during lockdown. Was your child one of them? Many students have been to the library and added the book they read to our ‘lockdown’ display. It’s not too late! If your child would like to add to the display please send them to the library.

Reminders

Book Week is week 6. On Friday 27 August we will be celebrating Book Week with a dress up day. It would be wonderful to see students come to school dressed as their favourite book character or dress to the theme Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds.

We will be hosting a Great Book Swap during week 6 this term with all funds raised going to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. We ask that you send your child with a book/s to donate to the Great Book Swap. Books are being collected in the library now. During Book Week (week 6) children will have the opportunity to choose a book to take home in return for a gold coin donation.

The Premier’s Reading Challenge closes on 3 September. Please encourage your child to complete the Challenge. Forms are available in the library and more information can be found online http://www.premiersreadingchallenge.sa.edu.au/PRC/
