Principal’s Post 26 November 2019
Welcome to the latest edition of ‘From The Principal’s Desk’ (and the penultimate for the year)
Classroom Placements for 2020
If there are any special circumstances relating to your child’s learning that you would like us to consider for their placement in 2020, please put it in writing addressed to me by 3pm, Friday 6th December. (next Friday)
Please only base requests on educational requirements. Whilst all parent requests submitted by this date will be given serious consideration, they will unfortunately not all be automatically accommodated. Please note, late written requests will not be accepted.

Voluntary Contributions Raffle
Whilst termed voluntary, these parent contributions are a vital part of our school funding. Every voluntary contribution received from parents goes directly to the education of the students at Anzac Terrace Primary School. The voluntary contribution is set at $50 for each child by your School Council and has remained at this value for many years. These contributions provide an important source of funds that allow us to provide a high ratio of technology use and additional resources towards providing 21st Century Learning.
Part of our arrangement with Ziggies (our Student Requirement List providers) allowed us to draw three students names from the list of all students who paid their voluntary contributions in 2019 (via a raffle). I am very pleased to announce that Antonin C (Year 3), Xavi W (Year 1), and Cherise T (Year 5) have all won their full Student Requirement List supplied free of charge for 2020.
To all parents who were able to pay the voluntary contributions this year, we thank you for making such a valuable contribution to your child’s education.
Year 6 Camp
It was a great privilege to go on camp with the Year 6 students to Point Peron last week. Whilst tiring (I need sleep), it was extremely rewarding to watch all students face the great unknown … face fear … face challenges. I also had the privilege of watching them all succeed at their own level. Through activities such as prusiking, rock climbing, kayaking, raft building or archery (to name a few), I observed students setting themselves goals and then striving to beat them. A HUGE thanks to Ms. Amanda McAlpine, Ms. Simone Irvine and Mr. Adam Lea for giving up their own time (and sleep) to ensure the students had a valuable and enjoyable time.
