Another busy week at Brighton Beach Primary School!


Mr Ric the Prep Bearded Dragon

A treasured member of our BBPS community died this week. He was embraced with much love, care and laughter, particularly with his food capturing antics of bugs and crickets. He has delighted students and visitors for many years now at BBPS. The children have turned his enclosure into a beautiful shrine of remembrance with messages of their love for him and the memories they will treasure.

Mother’s Day Stall

Our Mother’s Day Stall was a great success – thank-you to all families who participated. Special thanks to the Grade 1 Parents for overseeing the organisation of the stall and also to Emma Liley and Deidre Lewis for running

a craft station in the Library.

We wish our school community a very happy Mother’s Day and hope that all our Brighton Beach mums, grandmas and friends have a lovely day on Sunday. We invite you to be ready for a possible (Random Act of Kindness) RAK

from your child/ children.

2019 Prep Enrolment

On Tuesday night a successful session was provided to prospective parents with an overview of Brighton Beach Primary’s curriculum, extra-curriculum activities and what they can expect to see in a Prep classroom. It was wonderful to be able to share the fantastic learning that occurs throughout our school. We also invited those who attended to come along to see our school in action during Education Week on Wednesday 23rd May.


Siblings Enrolling for 2019

We love welcoming the younger brothers or sisters of our current students as they enrol to come to BBPS next year. Finding photos of their siblings in the school photo album and seeing them with their friends builds a natural connection as they recognise faces and familiar sites from around the school. Check out Daisy’s little sister on her visit this week with mum Kate.

Cross Country
Congratulations to all of our students who have qualified for the District Cross Country. Students were naturally disappointed that the current weather conditions caused the event to be postponed until Monday 21st May. Many of our students are very excited at the opportunity to represent the school at this next level. Well done to those students who are excepting the challenge to participate in the District Event, particularly those students who were surprised at their selection. It is a credit to their resilience and shows a great attitude in persevering with something that is new and different. We wish all our runners well!
