We sold over $1800 worth of books and our commission from this will allow us to buy over $350 worth of books to put in our school library for students to borrow. Children who won prizes in the Book Fair raffle were given their prizes on parade on Monday. TUCKSHOP IN 2015 The P&C Association has decided that in 2015, tuckshop will open only two days per week - Wednesdays and Thursdays. The reason for this decision is that tuckshop takings, particularly on Tuesdays, have been very poor for quite a while and the tuckshop is losing money. In an effort to rectify this problem, it was decided that the tuckshop would not open on Tuesdays in 2015. Hopefully the tuckshop will be supported on Wednesdays and Thursdays next year allowing it to remain open on these days. As well we are always looking for more tuckshop volunteers. If you are able to help please contact our convenor Mel on 4150 1124.

The answer lies in you. When you notice after exploring many , varied healthy experiences that you find joy in a particular arena, why not incorporate that joy into your daily work? An important challenge in our lives is to determine what makes our heart sing and then pursue it with passion and creativity. What makes your heart sing?

HIPPY PROGRAM - AIMED AT PREP 2016 CHILDREN Hippy is a free, two-year home based program to help families with 4-year-olds to be their child’s first teacher.

To infer, you must gather CLUES from the text by asking, What are the facts? You must also try to use your own PRIOR KNOWLEDGE, and you may even MAKE CONNECTIONS by asking, What knowledge do I already have? Or What experiences have I had that are similar to this? To help your child infer when reading at home, model your thinking by saying: I would expect that … I already know … so I think … In my experience … I think the author is really saying … My conclusion is … because in the text is says … I think what is really going on here is … I wonder why … This makes me think that … At first I thought … but now I think … After reading … I suspect that … To help your child infer when reading at home, you can ask the following questions: What would you expect to happen? What do you already know that can give you a clue as to … ? In your experience, how has … ? What is the author really saying when … ? What is your conclusion? Which words tell you that? What do you think is really going on here in this section? Why do you think … ? What makes you think that? What did you think initially? Do you still think the same way? After reading this page, what do you suspect is happening? When your children read at home And you sit by their side Help them learn the ways to know What the text is trying to hide. Show them how to think it through And the questions they can ask And they’ll find that inferring Is not the hardest task!
