    Helping Children To Learn Well Term 4 Week 8 2016

    Dear Parents, Families and School Community

    As the end of the year draws nearer, we like to celebrate a few traditions here at Albion Park Rail

    Public School. We like to say ‘Thank You” to all our volunteers who come along and help in many

    ways to make our school run as smoothly as it does. On Monday 5th December the staff have invited

    our volunteers to a Thankyou Morning Tea. We couldn’t do it without you, and hope you are back

    next year!

    Please come along and join us on Thursday 8th December at 5.30pm for our Carols By Glowstick

    extravaganza. We will have lots of singing, a barbeque and of course Santa to entertain us. The show

    will go on rain, hail or shine. Hopefully shine!!

    Our Whole School Award Assembly on Monday 12th December celebrates students’ achievement,

    excellence and progress throughout 2016. The Assembly commences at 11.30am. It would be lovely to

    see as many parents as possible attend the assembly to join in the celebrations. Yearly school reports

    will go home on this date.

    We will celebrate the end of the primary years of schooling for all our Year 6 students with a special

    Year 6 Graduation Ceremony on Tuesday 13th December, commencing at 9.30am. Please come

    along and join with us, as we farewell our most senior students.

    Uniform Shop

    A big thank you to our uniform shop volunteers, Lisa and Anne, who have had a busy couple of weeks

    selling our school uniform to the new Kinders for 2017. At the beginning of next year each student will

    be given a new school hat to wear at school every day. The choices will be the school surf hat or the

    bucket variety. We have a No Hat - No Play policy. So to ensure your child gets to enjoy our fabulous

    playground, please ensure they are wearing the school black hat.


    We have amazing canteen staff who open every school day of the year - thank you to Sophie and

    Chanel our awesome Canteen supervisors, our P&C Canteen committee and volunteers who ensure we

    serve lots of healthy food options every single day for our hungry students and staff!












    Thursday 8th December: Salaries Broadcast Meeting

    On Thursday 8th December the teachers of this school will be involved in a simulcast broadcast

    meeting run by the NSW Teachers’ Federation. It is expected that this will disrupt the school for

    the first hour on that morning. It is expected that minimal supervision will be available but normal

    classes will not resume until around 10am. A further note will go home explaining the situation.!/AlbionParkRailPublicSchool

  • Does cartoon violence make kids more aggressive?

    Lots of parents question the violence in many of today's cartoons and video games, but many of us grew up

    watching cartoons where violence was also a key ingredient. What does the research indicate about exposure of

    our kids to violence?

    Choosing a book for your child

    What makes a good book for young kids? Usually anything that they want to read. Resist the desire to choose

    only books that you read as a child. Good books teach kids things subtly while still telling a great story.

    Sports Update

    Congratulations to all the students who completed the School Swimming and Water Safety Program last

    week! The students did a fantastic job over the two weeks and made huge improvements. It is important that they

    make the most of the warm weather over the holidays to practice what they’ve learnt in preparation for the

    School Swimming Carnival on February 14th 2017.

    Year 6 Fundraiser

    Don’t forget our Ice-Cream Spider day is coming up. On Wednesday 7th December our Year 6 students will

    be selling ice-cream spiders at lunchtime for $3 ($2.50 if you provide your own cup). There will also be a

    guessing competition on the day for 20c a guess. The money raised will go towards the Year 6 end of year gift to

    the school.
