When I sat down to write this edition of the newsletter my heart rate went up a little when I realised that it was Week Eight already. This term is flying past very quickly. Last week was a busy one for us in admin with a school board meeting, staff meeting and an admin leadership meeting all day Friday.
On Friday, our Deputy Principals and I quarantined ourselves at regional office to discuss our thoughts about the future directions of our schools leadership over the next few years. The main conversations were loosely categorised as Student Behaviour, BYOD and Distributed Leadership. We had a few other items on the agenda but ran out of time late in the afternoon. We discussed each topic by starting with the numbers 5,3,1 and 50.
Five: What we want the school to look like in 5 years?
Three: Two or three things big things to deliberately improve next.
One: What does implementation look like over the next year? (12 months).
Fifty: What are our delivery commitments in the next fifty days?
Our next step is to discuss these things with staff at our next school development day on October 14.
At the start of next term, I will be taking some of my compulsory long service leave as required by the Department of Education. Ms Uren will be the Principal in my absence. I will be away from Weeks One to Four.
Next week, 19 of our students’ head to Japan as part of our Japanese exchange program with our sister school Takenodai. It is a very exciting time for both the students and the group of thirteen parents that will join us. This year Mr Basille, Mrs Adams and I will be accompanying the group. We hope that they have a great time with so much to learn and experience about school life in Japan.
Have a great week.
Just a reminder to all current Kindy students to return the green re-enrolment forms for 2020 to the front office as soon as possible. It is an Education Department requirement to enrol for Pre Primary. Thank you.

This fortnight our Core Virtue is : Orderliness
Orderliness is being neat, and living with a sense of harmony. It is being organized and having a place for things when you need them. Orderliness is planning something so that it works, doing it step by step instead of going in circles. Orderliness is putting first things first, and taking care of things you need to do.
I live this day with order. I do things step by step. I create beauty and harmony in my space and in my life.
A tip for Parents/Carers to do with children!
We would like to share three relaxation exercises from the “Relax Kids” program that are designed to improve the happiness, general behaviour, concentration and confidence in children and to help them manage their stress and anxiety. Enjoy! Rose & Paula
Deep Breaths – Close your eyes and concentrate on your breathing. Feel the in-breath and watch what happens when you breathe out. Take in a longer breath and then breathe out slowly and gently. As you breathe out, feel as if all your worries and problems are blowing away, leaving you feel relaxed and calm. Repeat a couple more times.
‘Today I will breathe like the tide’ – This helps when you feel panicked or stressed.
Tip of the day
Set up a relaxation corner in your home.
Melting Butter – Imagine you are a tiny piece of butter lying on warm toast. Imagine that the floor is warm like toast and you are slowly melting into the toast. Feel your whole body becoming soft and gooey as you melt and relax into the warm toast. How long can you lie there for, feeling relaxed and calm?
‘Today I will be calm like a lake’ – Repeat this to keep yourself chilled out today.
Tip of the day
Squeeze a stress ball or cuddle a soft toy.
Feather in the Wind – Imagine you are a feather floating in the wind. Feel yourself becoming so light that you can feel the wind carrying you along. Imagine yourself floating further and further into the air, feeling supported by the wind.
‘Today I will be free like the wind’. Repeat this to allow yourself to be creative today.
Tip of the day
Talk to someone about your stress and anxiety.

I would like to say a big thank you to Krista, Heidi, Louise, Paula, Jane and Ashly who volunteered at the father’s day stall. I couldn’t have done the stall without your help. I would also like to congratulate all the 13 winners for the Father’s Day Raffle. I hope all the fathers love their gifts and had a fantastic father’s day too. We got some wonderful feedback from the students, parents and teachers for the gifts we had on offer.
We raised a total of $1861.26 which is going towards our new playground we are fundraising for.
Our next fundraising is at the Junior Sports Day (18th October) and Senior Sports Day (25th October), where we are working with the canteen ladies for exciting lunches and we will have raffles and a cake store too. Any donations of cakes or biscuits would be very much appreciated. Please bring to the canteen during the weeks of the sports carnivals. Thank you.
We are looking for a volunteer who would run the fundraising for the rest of the year. If you are interested, please come and see me.
** Just a reminder that the canteen is open 5 days a week
from 8.30am to 2.00pm **
New summer menu will be coming home on the last week of this term. This will be current for Term 4 and Term 1 of next year.

Loose change Wednesday was so much fun. We will be holding these twice a term from Term 4.

Mix the first 4 ingredients together, once combined place the mix onto a floured surface, add fresh raspberries, gently kneading to incorporate into dough. Pat into desired thickness and cut out scones. Keep bringing the dough together and cut until all dough is used.

The Canteen Team

The uniform shop is run by volunteers and is open Monday – Thursday from 8.30 – 9.00am. We are not open on Friday.
Alternatively, you can order uniforms online at www.quickcliq.com.au and they will be delivered to your child’s classroom.
Sports Carnivals are just around the corner in fourth term. Junior Sports on the first week back and Senior Sports on the second week. We are fully stocked with sport polos and are available from the uniform shop for $25. We also have some adult sizes available for $26. Sports hats and black hats are available for $10.
Please remember to check the lost property located in the canteen area as it is filling up fast! Still a lot of lost property without names on it and if you buy a second hand uniform, please remember to change the name on it too. I do try to go through the lost property once a week.

For those of you that have never attended/or heard of Chin Wag, any parents or carers who are:
- New to the area
- May feel isolated
- Have a partner who works away/shift worker
- May have some ideas on how we can extend our support to families
- Or you may just have some spare time and would love a 'cuppa and a chat'
We meet each Wednesday morning at 8.45am - 10.15am for morning tea. You will find us in the OSH Club room, T9 (Demountable building next to oval). We would love for you to come and join us in a friendly laid back environment. We look forward to meeting some new faces and catching up with the regular Chin Wag crew.
On Friday the 20th of September, Kingston Primary School will be holding a fundraiser to raise money for the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation.
The theme is a beanie/pyjama day so students can wear their pyjamas and/or a beanie to school for a gold coin donation.
The Cure Brain Cancer Foundation relies on donations to help fight against brain cancer which kills more children in Australia than any other disease. All funds raised will be donated to the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation which will use the funds for research and to support people living with brain cancer.
Thank you for your support.
