Welcome back everyone to a wet and blustery Term 2 start! I hope that you all benefitted from a fabulously restful time in the holidays and enjoyed the wonderful weather in Melbourne if you were here!
Cycle 3 Camp – Gilwell Park
The term started with lots of enthusiasm and organisation as the 93 x Cycle 3 children and 10 x staff headed off to Gilwell Park in the Dandenongs after their camp was postponed due to bushfire risk last term. The week looks like it will improve as it goes on and we wish them an energetic time at the scout camp at Gembrook!
Down to business – WWCC
Over the next few weeks we have a number of information sessions at School. I will be running the ONLY Term 2 Working with Children Check session on Thursday week 26th April at 9am at Caulfield if you want to get involved in the Cycle 1 PMP (Perceptual Motor Program) at Brighton OR if you want to help in the Library, Pizza Day preparation etc and you have not undertaken this information session yet. Please sign up or ring Reception to let us know you will be coming.
New to Melbourne Montessori this year or last year?
This Thursday night at 7pm we offer an Information Session for parents who are new to the School. This is a chance for you to hear more about Montessori and how it works. It is an opportunity to meet two staff members and two parents whose children have been at the school for some time and to ask some of those burning questions you have been meaning to ask for some time! One of our parents this year who has been kind enough to come to speak with you, has a child in Cycle 5 in the senior school so you might have some questions for them about the benefits of Montessori in senior school.
Don’t forget School photos!
This term we will be taking the school photos at:
Brighton on Monday 23rd April and
Caulfield on 30th April.
Family photos will take place on 30th April in the Caulfield Hall from 8.15am.
Safe Travels, Susie!
Take the opportunity to wish Susie (and Peter) a fantastic break to celebrate their 30th Wedding Anniversary! Susie will be away from this Friday 20th April for one month and we wish them all the very best and a fantastic, trip of a lifetime!
