To start the year off we are holding a community picnic on Friday 12 February here at school. It will be followed up with our 'Meet the Teacher' evening. The night will go as follows:
5-6pm - Community Picnic on the school grounds (bring your own picnic blanket, chairs and food). We will have bouncy castles, lawn games for families to engage in and the coffee cart will be available.
6-7pm - Gather in the Activity Centre for the 'Meet the Teacher' session (meetings in classes will follow after this). Students will be supervised in the playgrounds by staff from 6-7pm.

All students are required to have a Myross Bush school uniform sun hatfor all of Term 1.
Please make sure this is clearly named. You may choose to sew on identifying badges or buttons to help clearly identify the hat.
Note: The old yellow school sun hat is ok to be worn but is slowly being phased out. No other hats/caps are allowed.
Please note, registrations close on Tuesday 9 February at 8pm.
A reminder that we ask parents to drop off and collect their children between 8.15am and 3.15pm. Unless they are bus children, children on the school grounds outside this timeframe are the responsibility of parents.
If the pickup timeframe is a challenge, we encourage you to enrol in an after school programme like what XO Church provide. The programme is in town but a minivan operates picking students up from our school.
Our annual school Working Bee is set for Saturday 13 February. Please mark this in your calendar now and come join our school community for a couple of hours between 9-12pm. Many hands make light work and a lot of fun!
