Principal’s Report

We’re back!! Looking forward to working with our team of volunteer parents and Chess Captains to run this lunchtime program again. If you have a spare Tuesday lunchtime, please reach out and let us know via the school email: (emerald.ps@education.vic.gov.au) as we would love you to help out. Thank you once again to Sharon and Mike for their continuing leadership of this excellent lunchtime activity. We are looking at running some Master Classes this term for students – so stay tuned!

A reminder that there will be a Curriculum Day on Friday 26th May, so no students are required at school on that day. Staff will be at school undertaking assessments and planning.

Emerald Lakers Basketball Club have arranged a full service of our Stadium on Friday 19th May – so just advising all members of the school community that it will be out of action for the whole day.

Our next Working Bee will be held on this Friday 5th May after school, weather permitting! We will be weeding the front garden and partaking in a delicious sausage  sizzle afterwards! Hope to see you then – starts after school at 3.45pm and we will be working on the front garden.

Next week we will be holding our school Open Night from 6pm to 7.30pm. Please pass on to any families who may have Preps wanting to enrol for 2024, or students in other grade levels. There will be an opportunity to have a school tour and chat with the Principal Team and staff.

There will be more details to follow, but next Friday, before Mother’s Day weekend, we are inviting all mums, and those who fulfil the mum role, to school for afternoon tea and visits to classrooms.

“Heel and toe, heel and toe……” We cannot wait for this event! It is shaping up to be a great night to get together and have fun! Tickets are just $10, 3 year-olds and under are free. Purchase your tickets via the Try Booking link on the Facebook page or on the flyer. (Soft-soled shoes only please!)

All parents of students in Prep, Grade 1 and Grade 2 are invited to an information evening in the Library on Wednesday 17th May at 6pm to hear more information about the approach to Literacy teaching at EPS for the junior school students, so that we can continue to build the connections between home and school to support learning.

Breaking up is hard to do!!!!!!!!

It’s time for the canteen to break up with single use straws, these will not be available in 2023

More than 8 million tonnes of plastic enters the world’s ocean every year and over 90% is single use plastic.

So let’s say bye bye to straws and hello to BYO. We highly recommend reusable options over all disposables. Students can purchase a reusable silicone straw in its own case with the school Emblem for $4 from the canteen (over the counter or via online) or uniform shop.
