Join us online for NSW Aboriginal Languages Week
25 Oct 2023
This week, schools across New South Wales are celebrating the very first NSW Aboriginal Languages Week. The theme is "Languages Alive, ...
As the school year draws to a close, Year 6 are invited to attend a special Graduation Dinner/disco to celebrate their seven years of primary school. This event has to follow the Department of Education guidelines for Covid-safe school formals. This is an end of year dinner rather than a school formal. As such, we ask children to come dressed as they would for a party or an important family dinner. We want all children to feel comfortable and enjoy the evening and to be dressed age-appropriately. We strongly discourage the use of makeup. Children are to be dropped off at the school hall at 6pm. Parents may return at 8:45pm to watch a final slide show. We hope all students can attend and share this special occasion before embarking on a new chapter of their lives in 2024. If your child is unable to attend the Year 6 end of year dinner, could you please let us know in advance. We are looking forward to an enjoyable evening. Stage 3 teachers

At the end of the school year, Year 6 are invited to attend a day out at Tik Tocs. This is an indoor adventure playground in Prestons. Students will receive unlimited access to the playground and a lunch of chips and nuggets (with a vegetarian option provided). Students will need to bring morning tea, to be eaten before entry to Tik Tocs. The venue does not allow any food to be brought in, so students may wish to bring some additional spending money to purchase snacks. Tik Tocs entry will included activities and lunch. Lunch is usually chicken nuggets and chips. The vegetarian option is usually a toasted cheese and tomato sandwich but adjustments can be made to cater for specific dietary needs. Students should come in mufti clothing, however it needs to be suitable for an active day. Shoes are removed in Tic Tocs, so socks need to be worn (and may get dirty!) Bell Ringing: At 3:20 pm, Year 6 students will complete their time at Springwood Public School with a ceremonial ringing of the old school bell and a walk through a student tunnel. We will have the tunnel in its traditional location on the Burns Rd side of the school. Parents are welcome to come into the school to help celebrate this special moment.
