Welcome back everyone! And a big welcome to our new students and families, and special welcome back to Meg Read and Kim Ancrum, who re-join our teaching staff. In what can only be described as a typical ‘four seasons in one day’ week in Melbourne, students and teachers at BBPS were busily back into the action.


Friday Play-Offs: We wish all the students competing in the Interschool Winter sport

playoffs on Friday all the best. Congratulations to the girl’s Netball, AFL and the boy’s T Ball teams for making it into the finals.


 DET Parent Opinion SurveyThe annual DET Parent Opinion Survey is offered by the Department of Education and Training at this time every year. It is conducted amongst a sample of randomly selected parents, designed to assist schools in gaining an understanding of parents’ perceptions of school climate, student behaviour and student engagement. Our school will use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies.

Approximately 30 per cent of parents will be invited to participate in this year’s survey. All responses to the survey are anonymous. This year the Parent Opinion Survey will be conducted from Monday 23rd July to Sunday 26th August.


The survey will be conducted online, only takes 10-15 minutes to complete, and can be accessed at any convenient time within the fieldwork period on desktop computers, laptops, tablets or smartphones. The online survey will be available in a range of languages other than English. The survey results will be reported back to the school at the end of September and communicated to parents through the annual school report.

Please speak to Bev or Kim if you would like more information.


A reminder from the nurses, in this season of sniffles and colds to keep students at home until recovered.  It also helps to minimise infection spreading unnecessarily.
