Newsletter Vol. 12

It’s hard to believe that it is already Week Four of this busy and exciting term.  After a smooth start to the term, where in class the students quickly engaged with their learning during daily fitness and physical education, students began preparing for the planned athletics carnival.  The school’s annual spelling competition was held this week and the Interschool Cross Country is scheduled for Week Five.  This is to be followed by the school’s Faction Athletics Carnival and Interschool Athletics Carnival which we are hosting for the second year.

Languages Other Than English Survey

From 2018 all schools in Australia will be expected to provide their students with the opportunity to learn a language other than English.  This program will commence with Year 3 students in 2018 and be extended by one year group each year until it reaches Year 10 in 2025.

An online survey has been created to give all families the opportunity to indicate which language they would prefer to be introduced to Poseidon Primary in 2018.  I encourage all families to make the time to complete this very short survey.
