Easter Raffle - Year 6 Hamper Delivery to Hamble House

Each year the community support for the much loved Easter Raffle, run by the PA Prep Parents, is very generous. This year our Year 6 leaders visited residents at Hamble House and took a beautiful hamper of Easter Eggs. Thank you to

Mira and Marissa who collected and collated this year’s raffle.


Camp Fun

Year 5 had a wonderful time at camp.  Their exemplary behaviour and modelling of our 5R school values was acknowledged by the Phillip Island camp staff.  This adventure camp supports our students to have a go at challenging outdoor activities including surfing. Many students discover that they can tackle new activities and build their resilience often surprising themselves after overcoming their initial reluctance. The surfing component in particular is always a highlight.


Student Leaders Collate student feedback

As you would have read in last week’s newsletter our Year 6 Friendship Ambassador’s, along with all our Year 6 leaders, led the school in our first ‘Friendship Gathering Activity’. This activity provided the opportunity for all students to have their say on what they would like to: ‘keep doing, stop doing and start doing’ at Brighton Beach Primary School. On Monday, Evan, Ryder, Ella and Chloe built their leadership skills by reading through and collating all the student responses gained during the activity. This feedback acknowledges student voice and will provide important student perspectives to inform our school review.
