Education Week

What a wonderful celebration of Education Week this week at BBPS. Thank you to all families who attended the Resilience Project with Martin Heppell on Tuesday night and joined in on our Open Classroom afternoon yesterday. We have had an overwhelming amount of positive feedback in regards to Martin’s presentation. Using stories and research, he shared how developing practices linked to three key concepts of gratitude, empathy and mindfulness can foster self-awareness and resilience in times when we are required to manage trauma.


Please see our Parent Information sessions calendar in this newsletter for future opportunities available to you this term, in particular, our session on Social Media, organised by the Parent Association.


ICAS Competitions

Entry to Spelling and Writing ICAS competitions has now closed. Thank you for entering your children so quickly, based on the tight time frame provided. Entries can still be made for Mathematics. If your child would like to participate, please send $9.90 in a labelled envelope to the office by Friday, 2nd June.


Pizza Parties

Walk-a-thon celebrations were had this week in 1B and 3M in acknowledgement of their collective efforts in rounding up sponsors and contributing to the total fundraising effort by our whole school. Thank you to the Parent Association for organising this celebration.



It was lovely to see parents, siblings and grandparents escorted around the playground yesterday at lunchtime, and then participating in social and emotional learning within the classroom. Students enjoyed sharing examples of their learning with their families.

Many prospective new families have also enjoyed seeing the learning in action as we have conducted tours from Prep to Year 6, inclusive of our specialist subject areas. It has also been a delight to host the Principal ‘meet and greets’ for the younger siblings of current students who will be coming to school next year in Prep.
