Dear Parents


As November comes so does the winter chill. Please take care and keep warm. Colds and sniffles are rampant so if you think your child is a little unwell please have them rest and recover at home for a day or two.


Scary Dress up Day

1 2

Thank you for your contribution and participation in our scary dress up day activities. The staff and students all had wonderfully creative costumes and a great effort was made by all to make the event as enjoyable as it was. Thank you to everyone for their generous donations to the treat packs and to the PTA for putting them together and preparing popcorn for the movie. Well done to the students for creating amazingly spooky activities for people to explore. The evening was a great success and I look forward to repeating it next year.

Fall Fun Day Postponed

With the weather rapidly growing colder and owing to such a short time for organizing it has been decided that we move the fall fun day to Spring. The warmer weather and additional time will allow for a bigger, better event. We will keep you informed regarding updates and progress.


School trips

Today the Year 4 to 9’s took a trip to Yangdong Cultural village. I’m sure it was a rewarding learning experience and we are keen to see what work they generate from attending this historical site.

On Thursday 8th November the year 1, 2, 3 students will make a trip to the Kidzania theme park in Busan.  We are all very excited to experience what it is like to perform different jobs in a real-world setting. More details will follow next week.

On Tuesday 13th November the year FS1/2 and Year 1 students will attend the new section of the park at Daewangam. Please see the class web-page for more information.


Lunchtime volunteers

We are calling on any parents who may be available between 12:30 and 1:00 pm to put their names down to be an extra set of eyes and hands during our daily lunch period. One person a day will be a great help. If you would like to volunteer, please fill your name on the calendar on the school notice board in the waiting area outside the office.


Thank you for your continued support.

Best regards,


Scott Kearney
