Coming up this week

Another busy week coming up!  As always we recommend you regularly check the School Calendar on the parent / student portal to see any attachments or details of events relevant to your child.

This week we welcome our 2016 Kindergarten students for their first full week (they have had rest days up until now). Already they are settling in beautifully to school life at Moama Anglican Grammar.  No doubt they will enjoy the long weekend at the end of it!

On Monday we have our Preliminary Biology class on excursion to Benarca Forest and our other two Year 9 classes set off to brave the elements on their hikes, bikes and canoes in Victoria’s great South-West region. We look forward to hearing of their adventures.

Tuesday provides an opportunity  for Year 7 and 8 students to brush up on their Study Skills and gain some insights about realising their “Personal Best”. Everyone learns differently and recognising  your individual style may just be the key to help each student develop the knowledge and skill to become more organised, more effective and to achieve better marks at School. Really useful information about our Study Skills Handbook is available to all our students (and their parents / guardians) at http://www.studyskillshandbook.com.au/ . The login details (username / password) are on page 6 of the 2016 Student Diary.

On Wednesday our Year 7 may come to School in their Sports Uniform.  Please make sure your Year 7 child has a substantial breakfast and (lots of water in preparation for immunisations. Details of the school immunisation program are available from http://www.mlhd.health.nsw.gov.au/ or our ever-so-helpful community nurses may be contacted at Moama Community Health – 03 5482 4399.
After School the first of our Parent / Teacher  interviews are being held as advised by email last week. We encourage students to attend these interviews to hear first hand about their achievements and expectations.  If attending, please have them in their formal (not sports) uniform.  Our students always look impressive when they wear their uniform well – people notice!

On Thursday Mr Downie heads off to Goulburn Murray Water (Tatura) with some Year 9 students to participate in a Career Awareness Day.  Maybe they can determine how soon we can swim in our beloved Murray River! There will also be more Parent Teacher interview sessions after School.

Excitement is mounting for the Primary Athletics Carnival on Jack Eddy Oval on Friday (weather permitting). May the best House win!

Please remember that next weekend is a long weekend for Moama Anglican Grammar due to the Victorian Labour Day Public Holiday, so we look forward to seeing our students return on Tuesday.

Have a great week!
