THE TERRACE TIMES

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

Good afternoon Parents / Caregivers,

Welcome to this edition of the Terrace Times.  My apologies for the tardiness of the newsletter, we have had some major problems with our internet connection, but we are working on it.

New Playground Equipment
Its in !!!  The new playground is in (finally) !!!
It looks magnificent and the kids absolutely love it.  Again my thanks to the P&C for all their hard work not only securing the original funding, but fundraising the extra moneys required to finish the project.

Book Week
Thank you to all parents who helped their child/ren get dressed up for Book Week last week.  The kids looked amazing.  Also my thanks to Tracey Illich for the organisation of our incursion … it was sensationally entertaining and educative at the same time.  Don’t forget, if you haven’t already paid for the incursion, please do so as soon as possible. Our winners from Book Week.

Science Week
Congratulations to Mr. Tristan Kaempf and the students of Room 15 who did a fantastic job with our Science Week activities.  As usual, it was a tremendous learning experience for all Anzac Terrace students.  Check out the photos later in this newsletter.

Anzac Terrace Has Got Talent
Don’t forget our ATPS Talent Show is happening next week.  Good luck to all students taking part; from all reports, it promises to be a great show.  The Talent Show will take place on Friday 31st August at 1pm in the School Hall; I hope to see you all there.

Personal Leave
This will be my last newsletter for the term as I will be going in to hospital for surgery at the beginning of September.  At this stage I am unsure who will replace me for this time … as soon as I know, I will let you know.  Unfortunately, this also means that I will miss the sports carnivals and open night.  I would like to wish all students the best of luck in both events, and as I say every time, if you can walk away knowing you’ve given it your best then you have already won !!

Have a great week,

Stuart Blackwood
Principal

AUSSIE OF THE MONTH

The Aussie of the Month award recognises personal endeavour, achievement and contribution to the community.

The awards also reflect some of the values we share as Australians, a sense of fair play, generosity of spirit, commitment to community participation and a real concern for the environment.

Twice a Term, two students are chosen as the Aussies of the Month and the recipients are presented with the Aussie of the Month badge and certificate at a school assembly.

The certificate and badge is kept by recipients as a memento of the occasion.

Congratulations to Alexander and Hayden our Aussies of the Month for August. Well done!

Science Week at Anzac Terrace Primary School

Being a Reading Sensation

As most of our students read each night, the BEARS reading program is not extra work for students, parents and caregivers or teachers, it is simply a method of calculating the number of nights the students read, and then rewards them at strategic numbers, eg 50, 100, 200 and so on.

Well done to the following students who have read for –
