Book Parade request from Clare

Thank you to all the Parents, Grandparents and friends who came to watch our 2018 Monty South Book Parade. I am wondering if anyone videod the staff skit? If you have I would be so grateful to get a copy of it. We have all the classes on video which is just fabulous. Thank you again for all your support. Your children were absolutely wonderful.

Thank you
Clare Bear

School Production Tickets
 
Tickets are now available via Trybooking for the Year 3-6 2018 production of Seussical Kids.  Space is limited and we ask families to limit ticket purchases to 3 per family.  Towards the end of the week we will open up ticket sales to those who would like to purchase extra, space permitting. 
 
Please buy your tickets soon.  https://www.trybooking.com/XMDM
 
School Production DVD

DVD envelopes will be distributed to the eldest in each family of the Senior school. School Memories Captured film your child’s performance from 2 camera views and professionally edit to a high standard at an investment of $25.00. You are not obliged to purchase, only if you wish. You will need to return the envelope with cash within 2 weeks after the performance, end of Term 3.

After that you would incur the extra cost of a single run, so get in quick if you’d like one.

Kind regards, Jude Barry

Year 5 request

As part of our STEAM Re-invention Design Project, the students will be working through the engineering design process to redesign the invention they researched in Term 2. We will need a range of materials that the students will use to create their model of their re-invention. If you have the following items, could you please send them to school by the end of Term 3 with your child and place them in the Year 5 STEAM tub in the BER.
 
– Cardboard tubes
– Boxes
– Scrap material
– Egg cartons
 
If you have any other supplies you think we could use, we would be very grateful to take them off your hands.
 
Thank you,
Nerinda, Jenny, Andrew, Andy and Laura
