Term 2 Thank you

Thank you to everyone who has helped in any way at school this term. I really appreciate everyone who continues to support our fantastic teaching and learning programmes. The relationship between home and school is very important for children’s learning, by supporting and helping in school activities this helps build strong relationships between home and school.

Last Day

The last day of term 2 is Friday 9 July and school will be finishing at the normal time. I wish everyone a relaxing and safe break. Term 3 will start on Monday 26 July.


Welcome to Malakai Brahne, Harlem Brahne, Saiah Brahne and Max Brownlie. Our current roll is 851.

Sit Less, Move More, Sleep Well Physical Activity Guidelines for Children and Young People

For school-aged children and young people (aged 5 to 17 years) high levels of physical activity, low levels of sedentary behaviour and sufficient sleep each day achieves greater health benefits.

A healthy 24 hours includes:

  • quality uninterrupted sleep of 9 to 11 hours per night for those aged 5 to 13 years and 8 to 10 hours per night for those aged 14 to 17 years, with consistent bed and wake-up times.
  • an accumulation of at least one hour a day of moderate to vigorous physical activity (incorporate vigorous physical activities and activities that strengthen muscles and bones, at least three days a week).
  • no more than two hours per day of recreational screen time.
  • for the remainder of the day:
    • sitting less, moving more – break up sitting time.
    • participating in structured and unstructured light physical activities.

Preserving sleep, trading indoor time for outdoor time, and replacing sedentary behaviours and light physical activity with additional moderate to vigorous physical activity can provide greater health benefits.

150th Celebration

On Friday 10 December and Saturday 11 December we will be celebrating our school’s 150th anniversary. Please put these dates into your diaries so you can come and celebrate with us. More details will come out next term about what the celebrations will look like.
