Can you believe that we have less than 4 weeks of school left for 2023! Mrs Amos is taking her holidays a bit earlier – Linda Amos will be commencing leave next week for the rest of the year (she may pop in at the end of the year). Cara Trott will take on the role of Acting Assistant Principal and join Tyson Buckingham and myself as part of the leadership team.
With only a few weeks to go, we have a couple of assemblies left to acknowledge our students. Next week we have our regularly fortnightly assembly where we give out our Beacy Spirit awards, specialist awards and make announcements.
On Monday 11th December, we will have our final assembly for the year. At this assembly we will acknowledge our students who reached 300 nights of reading, announce the winners of the Christmas raffle, say our ‘goodbyes’ and lots more. This assembly starts around 2:45pm in the shed. I hope you are able to come along and celebrate with us.
I am sure you have heard from your child how they are getting ready for the concert (or are they trying really hard to keep their performance a surprise for you?).
On Thursday 7th December we have two concerts.
- Junior (Prep, grade 1 and grade 2) Starting time – 1:45pm
- Senior (Grade 3, grade 4, grade 5 and grade 6) Starting time – 4:00pm
We all know that these events will be well attended so make sure you give yourself lots of time to park, walk to our school and get seated. We will open up the school gates on Lyle ave at 1:30pm for families to access our school. We will open the gate closest to the shed area.
There will be clearly designated areas for people sitting on rugs and where you can sit if you have brought a chair. As a school, we will provided limited accessible seating for those with additional needs. If on the afternoon, you need additional support, please see a staff member.
It will be a very exciting and busy afternoon for everyone. Please remember for the junior concert that your child is at school and in the care of their teacher, so we need them to stay with their grade at all times.
You were sent a very informative brochure regarding all the details of the concert on Sentral for Parents app. Please make sure you are familiar with it. We will be attempting to provide a live stream – let’s hope technology is working.
It is a timely reminder about our ‘Photographing, Filming and Recording Students’ policy.
Beaconsfield Primary school requests that parents/carers, students and invited guests who photograph, film or record school activities only do so for their own personal use and do not publish the images in any form, including on social media, without the prior consent of persons whose children also appear in the images.
We will also be recording our school concert and grade 6 graduation for DVD sales, and if your child participates, they may appear in these recordings which will be available to the whole school community.

I promise my last mention of the cricket for 2023. How exciting was it on Sunday night/Monday morning to see the men’s Australian cricket defeat India to win the ODI World Cup! They were certainly the underdogs going into the game, but it just proves that when everyone works as a team in all aspects of the game, you can achieve amazing things.
Have a great weekend,
