Good afternoon parents,

Welcome to the second last week of the term!

Christmas Play and Awards Evening - is scheduled for Wednesday 5th December commencing at 5.30pm. All students are asked to come dressed in their Christmas colours - feel free to wear antler, hats, tinsel!

ST. VINCENT DE PAUL CHRISTMAS HAMPER APPEAL – PLEASE HELP! - Each year at OLC we take time to be thankful for our blessings and to assist those in need by contributing to Christmas Hampers distributed by the St. Vincent De Paul Society.

Stationery - If you can please check in with your child if they need any stationery - please ask them about exercise books...we are running out and won't have any more to give.

In light of them moving into Year 4 next year, we do ask that you encourage your child to be as independent as possible with getting their own chairs, books and belongings sorted.

Spelling - Students are to complete a L…

Sickness - You may have heard about Gastro going around.  I have not had any reports from within the class, but the dreaded tummy bug has started to make the rounds here at OLC after having a huge impact at Dunsborough Primary. I am very mindful of how unpleasant this can be to be sick in this way at school so please know that if your child comes to me to mention that they are feeling unwell in the tummy I will ask Mrs Marrell to ring you. I would hate to ask them to wait and then for them to be sick. I am reminding the students to be washing their hands before they eat in an attempt to limit the spread.

I do know that it can be very hard to organise at times, but I ask you to keep your child at home if they have experienced any as…
