Thank you to the many parents who had recently expressed interest in attending the Years 5 & 6 Camp to
Sovereign Hill. We are always so very grateful for the overwhelming offers of support for our major schools
In selecting the parents to attend, please be assured that this is given considerable
consideration by teachers in consultation with the schools leadership team. Firstly,
preference will be given to parents who may have a skill set that supports the camp program,
or level of care that can be provided for the duration of the camp, such as a doctor/nurse, park
ranger, outdoor instructor etc.
Once this has been determined, we aim to ensure that places are offered to parents who
have not had the opportunity to attend previous camps, in order to ensure that this
opportunity is one that is shared amongst all parents in our school community.
Camps are organised on a student/adult ratio of one adult to every ten students. For the remaining camps this
year we look forward to parents assisting the educational experience for all students.


We are in the process of updating all of our office records in regards to students participating
in local walking excursions and school bus trips. We would appreciate it, if parents could
make sure these are up to date and promptly returned to school if changes need to be
These forms will provide permission for the duration of each childs enrolment at TPS.


Please note that the school will be closed on Monday 14th March for the annual Labour Day
holiday. I hope everyone has a chance to enjoy the longer weekend! School will resume as
normal on Tuesday 15th March.

In the last week of school all teachers will participate in their first planning week for
Children attend school as usual; however instead of having their specialist lessons
(such as sport, Art, etc.) throughout the week, they will have all of these lessons on
one designated day. In restructuring the timetable in this manner, it means that all
of the teachers at a particular level can be released for an entire day so that they can collaboratively
plan their program outline for Term 2. These strong planning practices continue to ensure that our
curriculum programs are rigorous and that there are heightened degrees of consistency in our
provision in classrooms at each year level.


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
