ANZAC DAY REMINDER MONDAY 25TH APRIL 2016


A reminder that the school will be closed on Monday 25th April for the annual ANZAC Day
Public Holiday.
To commemorate this special day, the Rye RSL has organised a memorial
service on Monday 25th April. Our School Captains Miah Taylor and Bailey
German will proudly carry the Tootgarook banner down Nepean Hwy on
Monday to the Cenotaph for the service. A wreath in our school colours will
be laid to honour of our veterans. An open invitation is extended to Tootgarook PS parents,
teachers and pupils to attend the Commemorative Service and to march which will
commence from Rye Pier at 12.15pm.

Attitude to School Survey (ATSS)


All students in Years 5 and 6 will complete a state wide survey next week from the Department of Education and
Training (DET) called the Attitudes to School Survey. This survey aims to measure students feelings whilst at
school, with a particular focus on their wellbeing & safety, their levels of connectedness to their peers/school as
well as their engagement with their learning.
In term 3 we will receive a report from DET which will show how students at Tootgarook feel in comparison to
all other schools in Victoria. Empowering our senior students to have a voice at school is an important focus for
our school and to this end we do analyse this feedback closely and modify our programs accordingly. I will share
an overview of these results in the newsletter as they become available.

Our annual School Cross Country will be held on Tuesday 26th April. Children
may come dressed in their house colours to support their team.
The times are as follows;
11.30am-1.30pm Grade 3-6 (running for district)
2.30pm-3.30pm Grade prep-2 (running for house points)

Thankyou to the following parents and friends who have offered to help
Karen Woodford, Andrew Wallace, Dianne McKenzie.

A Student Emergency Contact Details letter will be sent home next week with your
child. Please check all details and if there are any changes such as phone
numbers, address, emergency contacts - please return to the School Office
so records can be updated in case of emergency thank you!

Today some children will bring home a Student Absence Letter outlining the unexplained days
your child has been absent from school. Please fill in the Reason for the Absence and return to
school to enable our records to be kept up to date. If at any time your child is absent
from school please either phone the school or send a note with your child when he/she
returns thank you for you co-operation.
