Term 4 - Week 8

Good afternoon parents,
Below are some updates for week 8.

Christmas concert:
Next Wednesday 6th December, will be the whole school Christmas concert. The Year 5’s are lucky enough to be doing the production as a part of the preceding’s.

If your child needs to bring a costume from home, could they please bring it in by tomorrow. Once the costume id at school, it needs to stay at OLC till after the show.

During this term in Visual Art, we have been looking at natural Australian outback landscapes. Next Thursday 7th December we will be travelling to one of the most iconic man made Australian landscapes the Busselton jetty. Below is a copy of the note that was handed out Tuesday 28th November.

"Good afternoon parents,

This year the Year 5’s have been working very hard putting their hand to various types of visual and media art.  Students have also been learning about the elements of art and responding to not only their own, but art created by other people.

To celebrate the end of Year, we are going to the ArtGeo Cultural Precint in Busselton on Thursday 7th December.  Students will tour the ArtGeo gallery and the neighbouring heritage listed Jail and courthouse which is used by a number of artists.  A session of creating art and taking advantage of some of the amazing scenery will also be enjoyed by all.

Students will travel to and from Busselton by bus but will need to carry their own packed recess and lunch.  Students will need to wear their sports uniform and school hat. There will be no additional cost for the excursion.
An event such as this relies upon the generous input of many and so if you are able to provide your time and would like to join us on the excursion, please contact me.  I will require approximately four or five parents to ensure that the day can run safely and smoothly.

Please complete and return the attached permission slip by Thursday 29th November 2017 so I can ensure that groupings are adjusted accordingly.

If you have any questions or comments regarding the excursion, please drop in or send me an email.

Thanks for your ongoing support.

Ben Danaher
