Colour Run and Pick up

Dear Families,

We have had a fabulous afternoon with the Colour Run!  Thank you so much to all who helped with the organisation- such a happy occasion for our students! 

With concerns around the weather, parents/carers are most welcome to come early to pick children up this afternoon. We will bring children to pick up spots at 3pm, if picking up earlier, please come around to the outside assembly area. 

Have a lovely weekend,

Warmest wishes

Colour Run Reminder

Colour Run – Friday 18 September, 12.00-3.00pm

Don't forget we have the Colour Run coming up! It would be great if the children could wear a white t-shirt if possible, just so the colour shows up more. Children are to wear to school on the day, the clothes they will wear for the Colour Run.  Maybe pack a change of clothes for pick up or a towel for the car.

In keeping with our commitment during these uncertain times, the P&F aren't asking for sponsorship (you can donate though via Qkr! if you like).

We unfortunately can’t have spectators this year, but we are however looking for a few more parent helpers. Please email me htpspfpresident@gmail.com if you are interested and free at all between 12.00-3.00pm. 

Regards,
Cath Day

If you recognise any of this lost property please come in or send your child to collect it from the lost property box at the Front Office.

If these are not collected by Friday afternoon this week, they will all be placed in the bin as many have been in lost property for quite a while.

SAFETY ON SOCIAL MEDIA

A timely reminder regarding cyber safety for your family. Whilst students here at Holy Trinity aren’t legally allowed to hold social media accounts due to the legal requirements that users be at least 13 years old, a genuine warning from “Safe on Social Media” has been released today. I have reminded students today about the importance of cyber safety.

I ask also that if parents need to contact their child throughout the day, please do so via the Front Office, not through personal IT devices.

Safe on Social media are leaders in Cyber Safety education, training & consulting and accredited by the Office of the eSafety Commissioner.

Parents wanting further assistance in managing a wide range of Cyber Safety matters are encouraged to visit the eSaftey Commissioner website at https://www.esafety.gov.au/

Year 5 and 6 Exhibition Journey 2020

Dear Families of Year 5 and 6,

 

Next week we begin our journey with your children preparing them for Exhibition 2020.  This is a significant event in the life of a student at Holy Trinity as it is a culmination of their entire PYP experience. Exhibition preparation and presentation involves the whole school community, and is thus very collaborative in its approach. It is transdisciplinary inquiry process that allows your child to identify and investigate real life issues or problems, through multiple perspectives. This will be presented to our school and community on Tuesday 24th of November.  More details about how this presentation will look for both Year 5 and Year 6 will be communicated at a later date, once we know of updated COVID restrictions next term.

Year 5 will be working on a mini exhibition, (in preparation for Year 6 2021), based on two transdisciplinary themes, “How we Express Ourselves” and “Who We Are”.  Our Year 6 students will identify a global issue they are passionate about and connect this issue to one of the five transdisciplinary themes. This will form their framework for their exhibition. Because of the differing themes and expectations around the exhibition process for Year 5 and Year 6, we have decided it will be beneficial for the year groups to work separately, until Exhibition presentation in November, for parts of each day.  Thus your child’s timetable for each day, beginning next Monday will look something like this:

9am-9:40 am- in Home class groups, admin and Religion lessons

9:40-11am- split into Year 5 and Year 6 groups for Exhibition preparation

11:40- In Home class groups for well-being check in and admin

12pm- 3:10pm - split into Year 5 and Year 6 groups for Exhibition preparation

Specialist classes- library, Italian and Music will be in the separate 5 and 6 class groupings also. 

The classes will be split up into the following groups:

Year 5 Red and Blue - Miss Capper and Mr Bugden

Year 5 Green and White - Mrs Gerbich

Year 6 Red and Blue - Mrs Punyer

Year 6 Green and White - Mrs Casey and Mrs Lategui

 

Exhibition preparation will include specific numeracy and literacy skills lessons and workshops relating to the needs of each student with their inquiry. Please note that if you need to send any absentee notes or other correspondence via email or telephone, this will still be sent to your child’s current home teacher.

 For our Year 6 parents, we will be facilitating an Exhibition Information Session this Thursday night from 5-6pm via MS Teams.  Brendon Pye has set this channel up for you to use, ”Year 6 Exhibition Channel”,  just as we did for Parent/Teacher/student conferences in Term 2.  As MS Teams can be a challenging platform to have a discussion with such a large group, could any questions around the Exhibition journey please be sent to me via email before Thursday and we will address these during the presentation.  Year 5 parents are also welcome to email me with any questions or queries around the Year 5 mini-exhibition journey.

Thank you for your support with Exhibition 2020, especially as you play a vital role communicating openly with your child, and developing their self- management skills.  The PYP Exhibition experience is also effective preparation for high school.

I look forward to seeing our Year 6 parents via MS Teams on Thursday night.

Warmest wishes,

Philippa

HAPPY Father's Day!!

Dear friends,

To all the Dads in our community, wherever you may be, Holy Trinity wishes you a very happy day on Sunday and always.

A huge thank you to our P and F who have organised a surprise for each of our chidren's fathers.  This is a much appreciated gift, especially as we are unable to share this special occasion as we normally would with a BBQ breakfast and Prayer celebration together.

Instead we would like to share with you a beautiful Father's Day Prayer celebration from our ELC family to all via this link. 

Kind Regards,


Philippa Brearley
