For Parents

Kyilla’s 75th Birthday

At the beginning of next year, we will be forming a committee to help plan celebrations for our birthday bash. The plan is to have an event in October. The City of Vincent Library and Local History Centre has been very helpful in putting the word out into the community. The article below is in their latest newsletter. If you know of anyone who is a former Kyilla student who has a story to share please encourage them to contact the Local History Centre on 9273 6534 or at [email protected].

Christmas Carols Are Coming

The P&C Christmas Carols evening is on next Friday 13 December. Watch out for information coming soon. This is a chance for the whole school community to come together, listen to the children perform a song with their class and for families to enjoy a picnic on the lawn.

Pixie Post

We will be doing the Pixie Post in the last week of school (16 – 19 December). If your child wishes to give Christmas Cards out to class mates, they can deliver them to the Pixie Post mailbox in the front office. Each card must have the recipient’s name and classroom number (e.g. Year 1P). Cards will be delivered in the afternoon by some helpful elves.

Please do not put any candy canes, lollies or chocolates in the cards.

Book Clubbers

I had the pleasure of watching Year 5/6N discuss the novels that they had been reading in class. Rather than the teacher set the questions, students had to bring questions to their reading group to discuss. It was great to see how much thought had been put into the questions and the interesting discussions that followed.

 

Budding Reviewer

Saskia H, from Year 4/5 Cyan, has been asked to be an arts reviewer for an online arts publication called “Seesaw Magazine”. Take the time to read Saskia’s outstanding written reviews of two recent productions that she has seen. This is a fabulous achievement and opportunity for such a young student.

Class Placements for 2020

Teachers are currently working on class lists for next year. We received a number of requests from parents. Please be mindful that we are not always able to meet parent requests as there are many factors involved when we are putting classes together, and all children must be considered. Classes are balanced in terms of academic, social/emotional and behavioural factors. Class lists will be released via email on Monday 16December at 4pm.

Painting

The main school building will be getting a long overdue fresh coat of paint. This will start in the next couple of weeks. Parents and children will need to stay away from areas that are fenced off and that have scaffolding.

Trombone for Sale

A parent of the school has a trombone for sale. If you are interested, please contact the school and we will pass on the parent’s details.
