P/T/S Conferences for all year levels have been planned for Tuesday 23rd February. Ten
minute conferences for each student will be scheduled from 2:30pm
To book your preferred conference times, please fill in your booking sheet
and return to school asap.
These conferences are an excellent opportunity to find out more about your
child/rens start to the school year and to learn more about some of the key
learning goals that will form the basis of your child/rens personalised
learning program.

We are very fortunate to have two supervised school crossings to help ensure our
students arrive at, and leave school safely each day.
When using our crossings, its very important that accompanying parents and
guardians model appropriate pedestrian behaviour for our students. To this end,
we seek everyones cooperation to listen carefully to our Crossing Supervisors
and heed their support and guidance. By all working closely together at these
peak times, we aim to optimise the safety of all of our students at Tootgarook
every day.


The Department of Education + Training again this year offering the Camps, Sports and Excursions
Fund of $125 per child which is to be used towards school camps, sports and excursions.

CSEF eligibility will be subject to the parent/legal guardians Centrelink Health Care Card (HCC) or
Pension Card being eligible on 27th January and successfully validated with Centrelink.
Application forms have been sent home with the eldest child in each family. Please
return asap.

News from the Indonesian classroom.

This year Tootgarook Primary School will have an Indonesian Assistant, during Indonesian classes for
the prep to class 4 students. Last year in conjunction with Rosebud Secondary College, I applied for a
grant from the Victorian Government. Only 7 assistants were funded in the whole state of Victoria
and we were lucky enough to secure a language assistant. It will be a great opportunity for the
language development. Ayu is a 23 year old University Graduate who majored in Languages and
English Teaching. She is from Bandung in West Java. Please make her feel welcome when you see her
on the School grounds. It is her first Overseas trip away from her family.
Amanda Lee, Indonesian Teacher.


Sovereign Hill Camp 5/6

On Wednesday 10th February the grade 5/6 students went to the Sorrento ferry with our parents and
our luggage.
We went up the stairs and went in the lounge area and
cruised for 45 minutes until we got to Queenscliff.
It took a long time! When we got to Sovereign Hill we got off
the bus and we got our bags and went down the stairs and
then we went into our
cabins and we all set up
our beds. When it was
time for our activities,
we went in our groups
and left. We first looked
around and went to a smelting demonstration. Next, we went off
and had another look around in the lolly shop and other
interesting shops and
then we went to the New
York bakery and had dinner. We had chicken with vegetables.
After that we went to the Victorian theatre to watch a
pantomime which was fantastic!
The next morning, we woke up, brushed our teeth and went
outside to the grassy hill. The girls waited 10 minutes (or
more) for the boys to come! Then we had activities all day.
Sovereign Hill was nothing like we had seen before. It looked
just like the goldfields would have looked like in the 1850s.
We went to Blood on the Southern Cross that evening. It was
The next morning, we woke up and went to the Sovereign Hill Caf to have breakfast. After that we
went to the Geelong Waterpark! It was super fun! We got back on the bus and went on the
Queenscliff ferry home. We would like to thank Kerry Hazendonk, Maura Harbour, Adam Kelly, Melisa
Peterson and Graham for coming along on our camp. We had SUCH a good time!
