I hope this message finds you all well as we are approaching the midpoint of the year. It’s been a busy fortnight at Bellaire, and I have some important updates and reminders to share with you…
Mrs. Sarah Kennedy’s Last Day and Maternity Leave
I would like to take this opportunity to announce that today (Friday) will be Mrs. Sarah Kennedy’s last day before she embarks on her maternity leave. We extend our warmest wishes to her and her husband Pat as they prepare for this exciting new chapter in their lives. We are fortunate to have Mr. Jackson stepping in as Mrs. Kennedy’s replacement in 2SK, and we are confident that he will provide excellent support to the students in her absence.
Bellaire Parents Group Trivia Night
I would like to commend the Bellaire Parents Group for organising a highly successful Trivia Night last Saturday. We were impressed by how well organised the event was. Reports from attendees have been overwhelmingly positive, and the event managed to raise significant funds for our school. Thank you to all the parents and volunteers who contributed their time and effort to make this event such a resounding success.
Bellaire Parents Group – Hot Cross Buns Funds
Thanks to the Parents Group, and the incredible support of our parent community, we’re thrilled to announce the arrival of brand-new sandpit play equipment for our students! The funds raised during our Hot Cross Bun drive made this possible, and we couldn’t be more grateful. We witnessed many smiles and laughter of our students enjoying their new sandpit play equipment for the first time today!
I would like to remind everyone that this coming Monday, 12th June, is the King’s Birthday public holiday, and there will be no school on that day.
Additionally, the last day of Term 2 is Friday, 23rd June, with classes concluding at 2.30pm. Please mark these dates in your calendars to ensure a smooth transition into the upcoming break.
We kindly request your support in reminding your children to wear their school uniform consistently. By doing so, we reinforce discipline, professionalism, and consistency within the school. A neat and tidy appearance fosters a positive learning environment for all students, and we greatly appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
Semester Two Reports
Semester Two reports are scheduled to be published via Sentral and email on Wednesday, 21st June. These reports provide valuable feedback on your child’s progress and achievements throughout the semester. We encourage you to take the time to review the reports thoroughly and discuss them with your child.
Building Works and Community Information Event
As you are aware we have experienced delays in the construction process. To address any concerns or queries regarding these delays, we will be hosting a community information event, run by the Victorian School Building Authority (VSBA) on Wednesday, 21st June, from 2.45pm to 3.30pm. This will be an opportunity for you to gather more information and have any questions answered. We encourage your attendance and value your input. Event details and registration links will be provided to you all.
If you wish to be a parent helper in your child’s classroom, you must have completed an induction. Therefore, Mrs. Rau will lead another Parent Helper induction at the start of next term. Stay tuned for more details in future newsletters and school communications.
Thank you all for your ongoing support and involvement in the Bellaire School community. Together, we continue to nurture a positive and enriching educational experience for our students. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
