Happy Mother’s Day to all our community mums, grandmother’s, aunties and friends. For many Year 6 mums it was their last Mother’s Day lunch at BBPS so it was fantastic to see nearly everyone come along! A big thank you to the Year 1 parents for organising our highly successful Mother’s Day Stall, and to Sam Hales for coordinating another wonderful annual Mother’s Day Lunch.
Congratulations to Year 3 and 5 students who have been participating in national assessment in writing, reading and language conventions this week. Students will sit the final assessment in Numeracy on Monday. This year we are a pilot school for the online assessment platform – all testing except for Year 3 Writing now takes place online.
