Reminder to watch out for the Super Moon!

Hopefully the clouds will clear near you tonight so that you can catch a glimpse of the Super Moon for the first time in nearly 70 years. I believe the closest point is strictly in the early hours of Tuesday morning, but you might be able to see how bright the moonshine is before then! Good luck!

Transition Days start this week!

Reminder to all parents whose children are moving from Cycle 1 to Cycle 2 or from Cycle 2 to Cycle 3: On Thursday 17th November (morning) your child will be able to see their new surroundings, meet their new teacher, make new friends and begin to feel part of their new classroom. Further Transition days will be Friday 25th November (morning) and Monday 28th November (all day). Parents of transitioning children are also invited to come and share a coffee with other parents in the Staff Room at Caulfield on Monday 28th November after drop off.

Jarrod Hampton Sports Day for Cycle 2s and Cycle 3s

Reminder that this Friday children need to be dropped at school, AS USUAL. They will then walk down to Princes’ Park to have an energetic morning of organised sports and activities. Children will then walk back to school in time for Lunch.

Sleepover for Middlies!

A wonderful, activity-filled sleepover was held last Friday for the Cycle 2 Middlies at Caulfield. All the Cycle 2 teachers and the children got involved in a number of fun activities, had pizza for dinner and finally settled down to ‘Minions’ before going to sleep, at least for a few hours! The children really enjoyed the sleepover and we thank all the teachers and Dominic for organising this fantastic taster of camping life!

Brighton Working Bee

Thank you to the marvellous helpers who came on Saturday and helped organise the sprucing up of the Brighton gardens. Some much-needed weeding, grass cutting, hedge trimming and general maintenance has made a big difference to the appearance of our Brighton campus!
