Road Safety
We want all of our students to go to and from school safely. Sometimes the school is contacted by members of the broader community to give information and feedback about students making their way to and from school. Please reiterate with your children how to do this safely whether on foot or by bike or scooter, particularly about being mindful of signals when crossing at designated crossing areas. This important message is also being shared during class time.


BBPS AGM – June 20th at 6.30pm.
Please save this date for our next school council meeting as the opening of that meeting is the BBPS Annual General Meeting. Interested members of the school community are invited to attend. It is an opportunity to recount the school’s achievements including Student Engagement, Wellbeing and Productivity.


Bubbles at Bells
The BBPS Annual Winter Event held off-site for the first time was a resounding success and enjoyed by all in attendance. The sense of community that exists and comes to the fore at BBPS for such occasions and indeed for any school event is something that everyone can be proud of and celebrate. Sincere thanks to Deidre and the PA Team. Many thanks must go to all the organising committee and additional helpers who contributed in a whole range of ways.


Class Libraries
Many thanks to those parents who have cleared out book shelves at home to donate pre-loved books for our literacy project to build up ‘class libraries’. Many of the books arriving to school are in pristine condition and will be put to excellent use. If you have yet to clear out your children’s book shelves and would like to do so, please consider sending books in for our classroom book corners.  


Student Voice and Agency was on display at this week’s whole school assembly exploring the Reconciliation theme of ‘Don’t Keep History a Mystery’. A dedicated Year 6 team, coordinated and led the assembly along with the intercultural captains. A feature was the use of a drone to film the Year 6 interpretation of the different clans of the Kulin Nation and identifying the Boon Wurrung as the traditional owners of the land on which we gather here at Brighton Beach. Shanti Treloar and Amy Chisholm supported and coordinated the presentations.

Congratulations to all of our Year 6 students for leading this impressive Reconciliation Assembly. By making it a whole school assembly all students shared their connections with this important event.
