8th December—School reports home 14th December—Prizegiving
& last day of term.
The PTA would like to thank families and friends of the school for your
support throughout the year. It has been a very successful year, so thank
you for your contribution in so many ways. Your continuing support means
our children will go on benefiting from new equipment in the school. Have
a happy and safe Christmas and school holidays.
NO YEAR 6
Due to lack of interest in the Senior Social this year we have decided
to have a special time with fun and food at the school instead. This will
only be for the children who have already paid for the social. They will
have some time in the school pool and then some drink, chips and chocolate
bars. This event will take place this Friday 10th December at 12 midday.
A recent stock take has been done in the library and many books have gone
astray without being issued to anybody, please have a good look at homeor
school for any DPS Library books.
Notices have been sent home with children who have lost library books.
These books are to be paid for before school finishes next Tuesday.
The lost property basket is once again overflowing with clothes, please
feel free to come in and see if any of it belongs to your child. Anything
left in the basket at the end of the term will be donated to charity.
School prizegiving is on 14th December at 10.30am in the Town Hall. Parents,
caregivers and friends of the school are invited to attend, please be
in the hall and seated by 10.30am. Children are to attend school as usual,
starting at 8.50am. They will assemble in their classrooms and walk down
to the Town Hall at 10am. After prizegiving all children must return to
school with their class. Parents are welcome to take their children home
from class at approximately 12.00 midday, please let the teacher know.
Any children remaining at school will continue the day supervised until
3pm. Bus times are as normal.
What is fluoride? Flouride is one of the many substances found in water
and food. It occurs naturally in soil and water. Most toothpaste contains
fluoride and at the dental clinic we use fluoride varnish to treat early
signs of tooth decay.
Fluoride works in three ways:
It strengthens our teeth
Stops bacteria from attacking our teeth
Repairs weak parts of our teeth
We recommend the use of fluoride toothpaste and fluoride tablets as our
local water supply is not fluoridated. Please contact us if you require
