Dear Parents

Welcome back. Once again thank you for having your children return to school so well presented in
their summer uniforms and their books covered and labelled. A reminder that hats are to be worn
this term and our policy is no hat – then students stay in the shade.

Bell times for this year:
8.45am                 First bell.
8.50am                 Classes to be assembled for morning gathering.
11.00 – 11.20am        Recess.
1.00 – 1.10pm          Supervised lunch eating time.
1.40pm                 End of lunch break.
2.50pm                 Pack up bell.
2.55pm                 Classes to assemble for afternoon dismissal.

The swimming program is well underway. Thank you to Mr Nick Cramp and Mrs Jo Cramp for
undertaking this program this year. The students have been very enthusiastic about their program.

Guitar Lessons
Private guitar lessons will now be held on Thursdays instead of Tuesdays and will commence in
Week 4.

2009 Year Book
The publishing of our last year’s Year Book has been an ongoing saga. The company moved
buildings and were without a phone line for a substantial time. This had ramifications for accessing
their website and contacting them.
All their issues have now been addressed and our Year Book will be ready in the very near future.
Our thanks to Mrs Lana Best for her perseverance.

BER Progress
  1. Over the holidays the monument, under the supervision of an archaeologist, has been
      demolished. All headstones, or parts of headstones held within the monument have been
      documented and are being securely stored.
  2. The new basketball court is having the slab poured today. All is looking good in that quarter.
  3. The new Early Childhood / Multi-purpose building is now ready to go. Increasing costs
      meant some delay while location factors were being addressed. We look forward to seeing
      construction work begin the very near future.
  4. Upgrading of the quadrangle and main school building will occur over the 2010 Christmas
      holidays so that disruption to classes is minimal and issues of student safety are eliminated.

Early Learning
Early Learning will commence on 1st March, 2010 for children turning three on or before the 1st of
January 2009. Early Learning will be held in the Kindergarten room and will be run by Miss Errin
McDonough. Errin has some wonderful ideas and plans for Early Learning, so please let anyone
with a 3 year old know of this new initiative at Our Lady of Mercy.

    Grade 1

    What a fantastic start to the year! I know it is only day 3 but we really have had a great start. I have
    been really impressed with the way the students have settled, and are so eager, friendly and helpful.

    We have had a busy start to the week with swimming, and already we have a few tired little people, so
    we will take it easy while swimming is on. Our swimming time is from 12.00 -1.00 if any parents wish
    to come and watch their child swim. Next Thursday we require a parent volunteer to walk with us to
    the pool. We leave school at 11.30 and return to school by 1.45. If you are able to help, please let me
    know with a note in your child’s diary.

    Homework will start in week 4. I did not want to give homework during the weeks we had swimming,
    and I would like the opportunity to be able to go through it with parents at the information night, which
    is in week 3. We will start a parent help roster before Easter, but will spend the first part of the term
    letting the children settle in to our classroom routines. From week 4 when homework starts I will need
    some ‘early’ parent help to assist with changing reading books and individual spelling tests. Both of
    these jobs will need to be completed on a Friday. If you are able to help on a regular basis, or willing to
    go on a roster for either of these jobs please let me know.
