A reflection on the week that was:
What a wonderful night Friday was – perfect weather and a great opportunity to welcome our new families to BBPS and reconnect with friends. A big thank you to the PA for organising this event, and to the many parents who helped at stalls, with set up and pack up. Special thanks to Queenie Dirkx, Marissa Freer and Mira Abu Aittah for working together to coordinate the event.
“I bought a My Little Pony book from the second hand book stall!” Imogen, 1W
“I got a hot dog, and it was delicious” Taleen, 1W
“Coming back to school and playing with our friends” Annabelle, 3B
“Playing tiggy with my friends” Alexi, 4D
“It was great that I always had lots of company because there were many people I knew” Pieter, 4D
“I liked playing grip ball with Charlie” Josh, 4D
“The food stalls were good and it was really fun because a lot of my friends were there” Lucy, 6B
Curriculum Nights A big thank you to all families who attended our curriculum nights this week. This was a great opportunity for teachers to share details about classroom learning for the year. Many thanks to our teachers for facilitating these sessions. Curriculum Booklets will/already have been shared with families via Compass.

Class Updates Since last year, and the introduction of Compass we have continued to make improvements to ensure streamlined communication to parents.
The parent association are also working with us to improve communication through online platforms that support class representatives.
If you are not yet receiving class updates from your class rep, because you are a prep parent or new to the school, please use the link https://goo.gl/forms/IXa9xJspnxzhY9Rp1 and submit this form. We are still looking for class reps for 1W, Year 3’s and 5T. It would be great to express your interest by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Apologies for any glitches that you may have experienced. Please note that all class reps will cross reference with class teachers.
Reminders Early arrival at school – a reminder that students should not be coming to school before 8:45am as there is no teacher on yard duty to supervise.
