The Spectacular Shoe Show


Every class in the school has engaged in a shoe themed art task this year and the stunning results will be on display in the Art Room for Open Night only. Paper shoes, reflective shoes, renovated shoe boxes, restyled shoe packaging, ornamented, bedecked, festooned and definitely over the top footwear will provide all who stride in with an eye feast second to none!
Be sure to make time to visit the Spectacular Shoe Show when you come to Open Night next Thursday 14th September.

A reminder to everyone that this week is Book Week and the theme is “Escape to Everywhere”. 

A successful Ceramics Incursion in the Art Room has seen the creation of 111 Creatures of Flinders Park!

Another busy term is rapidly coming to a close. When I write the last newsletter for the term I am continually amazed at how quickly the term has gone. Term 2 closes at 3:10pm on Friday 1 July. Thank you to our hard working staff who have continued to provide a stimulating, challenging and engaging learning experience for students. I look forward to our learning journey continuing next term and wish all students a safe, happy and enjoyable break over the holidays.

As part of the PBS (Positive Behaviour in Schools) S.A.I.L.S program, Flinders Park would like to trial some alternative designs for the school merit certificates. The competition is open to all students, parents, guardians and members of the Flinders Park community.

Semester 1 Reports will be sent home with children next Wednesday 29 June. Please take some time to read through the reports with your child over the holidays and praise them for their achievements and improvements. Try to draw from them areas of their school work that they need to improve and set a couple of simple goals with them that they can work towards attaining next term.

Spencer Park Dental Therapy Centre will be open for most of the July school holidays. We will be closed from Monday 11th July until Wednesday 13th July inclusive. If you child develops an urgent dental problem during this time please contact Mount Barker Dental Van on 0437 486 143 between 8am-4pm.

Teachers are well underway in the completion of writing student reports for Semester 1. The reports will be sent home on Wednesday 29 June.
