A friendly reminder that the first swimming class starts next Monday at 10:30am. If your child requires practice, it would be a great idea to try changing into and out of the swimsuits this weekend. If you are interested in helping out next Monday, please meet us on the 1/F by 10:20am. Parents, Grandparents and Aunties are all more than welcome to come and help out but we are encouraging independent skills so are asking all volunteers to help promote these skills also. If you are helping out, please verbally encourage students to change independently instead of physically helping them. All volunteers are then invited to watch the swimming lesson on the 2nd floor observation deck.
I am starting to post meaningful engagements students are taking part in on SeeSaw. The posts are spontaneous to a specific learning moment. With that being said, the number of individual posts may vary week to week. Thank you for your support and please continue to extend your child’s learning by staying up to date to the happenings in Prep C. Here is the updated parent letter for our current unit of inquiry on Sharing the Planet.
Some of the posts on SeeSaw this week are connected with Plastic Free Seas. Dana and Tracy from PFS came in to talk about how plastic in our ocean is affecting our planet. Here is a video, created by a CDNIS alumni that day. Please continue to encourage your child to reduce, reuse, and recycle!
Field Trip to HK Park
Thank you to everyone who handed in the field trip forms already.We would love to have 8 parent volunteers to accompany us on the field trip (however we only have room on the bus for 5). There will be other opportunities to help out on field trips during the year so if you can not come this time, or it is full you will be our first priority next time. Once I have compiled all the forms, I will send an email out to the parent volunteers assigned for the trip. Stay tuned!
Halloween is fast approaching! Here is a quick rundown for Tuesday, October 31st.

Parent observations start next Monday. Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your time for a brief discussion regarding the checklist. We would like to remind parents to look at the notes regarding one parent per family, and just a reminder that if any student’s learning becomes disrupted due to a parent we may have to ask the parent to leave.
