Principal’s Report

Reminder: Tomorrow  Thursday 27th June  is our Parent-Teacher Interview Day.  It is a great opportunity to discuss your student’s report and progress. Please note the different hours for this event for 2024 – 11.30am to 6.30pm.  This is a Student free day.

A reminder that this Friday 28th June is our fabulous Mrs. Smith’s last day at EPS after 42 years!!! We are farewelling her in style at a whole school assembly – 9.15am on Friday. There will be singing, confetti cannons (please be aware for young children) and some past EPS famous faces! In a salute to Polly, the students and anyone attending are encouraged to wear anything black and white – Polly is an avid Collingwood Fan! Hope to see you there to wish her all the very best and thank her for everything she has done for our school community.

Our heartfelt thanks to the following families who supported us with attending our recent Winter Working Bee. We managed to spread softfall mulch under all playground equipment on the School Oval and clean out some large branches and debris from the storms back in February in the space beside the Frog Bog at the back of the school.

A BIG shout-out and thank you to:

  • The Soussan Family
  • The Blackmore Family
  • The Floyd Family
  • The Hamilton/Hembrow Family
  • The Lee Family

Of course, thank you as always to Patric Soussan (Building & Grounds School Council) for his co-ordination of the event and Bronwyn Thomas-Smith for her outstanding barbecue skills!

A reminder to all families that as per our previous notification, we will be closing the Emerald Primary School Parents’ Facebook page over the holiday period, due to a higher safety and privacy risk being associated with a public group. We will be creating a new closed group Facebook page for the school and send the invite link around for everyone to join up, with approval by the admins.

  • Friday 28th June @ 2.30pm – Finish Term 2
  • Monday 15th July – Curriculum Day; no students required at school

Community News

Do you want to play your part in helping us set our priorities over the next few years by being a member of our Community Panel?

We’re looking for community members to join us at three upcoming workshops, plus an online introduction session, between July and August to help develop our 2025-2029 Council Plan.

To ensure we have a panel that represents the diversity of our region, we’re strongly encouraging community members from traditionally under-represented groups, such as women, younger people, renters, LGBTIQ+, people with a disability or people from a culturally diverse background, to express interest in joining the panel.

The Community Panel will come together to discuss ideas, opportunities and challenges for Council now and into the future.

No expert knowledge is required, just a willingness to contribute in a group setting and an open mind to learning from others and finding solutions.

The session dates and times are as follows:

  • Introductory session (online) Wednesday, 17 July from 7pm-9pm
  • Meeting One on Saturday, 20 July from 9:30am to 3:30pm – Lilydale Civic Centre
  • Meeting Two on Saturday, 3 August from 9:30am to 3:30pm – Lilydale Civic Centre
  • Meeting Three on Saturday, 17 August from 9:30am to 3:30pm – Lilydale Civic Centre

Panel members will receive payment for their time, in recognition of their commitment and the importance of this work.

Applications close Sunday, 30 June 2024.
