Principal’s Report

Term 4 – Coming to an end!

We have a very busy end to this term and the school year at EPS. Our Grade 4 Campers took off today to Sovereign Hill – hopefully the rain dries up soon for them! Tonight we are looking forward to meeting our new Prep students and their families for 2024, as they visit with their teacher for next year and spend some time in their classrooms. I cannot believe that it is nearly time to farewell our wonderful Grade 6 students – with Graduation and lots of other festivities to celebrate the end of their journey with us coming up. Last Friday we were lucky enough to have Mr. Dennis Fuller telling our whole school some fantastic stories, with Grade 6 students helping out at the end with their favourite “Hairy Toe” story! Our whole school Transition Morning, for students to be in their new 2024 classes and meet their teachers for next year, will be held on Tuesday 12th December. Our Grade 6 students also head off for an experience at their new schools on that day too. We have an Assembly this week, then the Leaps and Bounds Awards Assembly on Friday 15th December, and our Final Assembly on Wednesday 20th December. I will look forward to seeing everyone around at many of these events to finish off a great year.

Friday Meal Deal

Crispy Chicken Sushi

  $6.50

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.
