Junior School News: Week 4 Term 2, 2022

We are looking forward to holding our Junior School Academic Assembly on Friday 27 May. Please note parents/carers of award winners will be notified of the details. It will be great to be able to showcase some of the terrific work that has been going on in classes this term.

Important Rugby Information – With a large number of our teams playing against Marist at Marist this weekend, the college has spent considerable time reinforcing expectations around positive behaviour at any fixtures. Messaging has been consistent around themes of sportsmanship, fair play and acceptance of refereeing decisions. Parents, coaches and supporters are also asked to assist in a similar way leading up to and during weekend fixtures. We look forward to some hard-fought games of rugby in great spirit.

Matt Giteau Cup (Rugby Union) – Thursday 26 May. Selected students are asked to return their forms asap.

Year 5/6 Touch Football Gala Day – Tuesday 31 May. Following on from our touch football unit in Physical Education at the end of Term 1, we will be entering approximately 6 teams of interested students into the ACT Touch Football Gala Day (Southside). Please return permission forms asap.

South Weston Cross Country – Wednesday 1 June.

PE Uniform – Just a reminder that your son is to wear his PE uniform to school each day his class is scheduled to have PE. He is also to wear PE uniform on Day 10 of the timetable as classes usually have Year group sport on this day.

Year 6 Runners Program – As a part of our Year 6 into High School transition program, we will be enlisting the assistance of Year 6 students to help as runners. As runners, the students will get to know the school layout very well ahead of Year 7. The students will work in pairs for a full day (learning remotely between jobs). The students will rotate through on a daily basis for semester 1 only.

Absences – If your son is away from school, parents/carers need to ring 6239 0694 or email studentservices@stedmunds.act.edu.au with a reason. If you forget to do this, you will receive a text message. If you receive a text message, reply 1 – sick, or 2 – family reasons to account for the absence.
