We are asking that grandparents supply a picnic lunch for themselves, which they can eat with
their grandchildren. They should also bring a bottle of water, hat, sunglasses and their
chairs or rugs for the picnic. The weather can be very cold and windy – so ‘rug up’!

KB Mystery Reader

On Friday we had Mr Gordon visit KB as the Mystery Reader.
He read The Very Cranky Bear by Nick Bland. It was a funny story and we enjoyed Mr Gordon's big growl for the bear part.

KB Mystery Reader Week 10

Today we had Ethan's mum visit KB and read Pig The Pug by Aaron Blabey. It is a delightful book about a dog who doesn't want to share his toys with his friend. He learns the hard way in the end. A good talking point about sharing our possessions with others.
Thank you Mrs Gerovissilis for spending some time with KB.

End Of Term 2

Hello Everyone,
It's hard to believe that we have reached the end of another term and that Kindergarten are now half way through their first year of school.

If you were able to join us at the assembly today (Friday), you would agree that it was wonderful opportunity to celebrate the achievements made throughout the term.
Congratulations to those children who received their Principal's Award. 
Apologies for the quality of the photos in a dimly lit PAC and if any children were missed in the line up. 

We would like to wish all our families a very safe and restful break.
Enjoy the precious time together.

Mrs Nicole Collins    Mrs Leanne Blake
