On Monday 2nd September, some of the Banksia 2 Dads came to school for a special Father’s Day Breakfast. The children had a wonderful time making a crown for Dad, shaving his face, sharing their artwork and having a play! Thank you to all our amazing Dads for the hard work you do each day to support your child’s learning and development.
Tomorrow (Thursday 12th September) is the Bull Creek Primary School Athletics Carnival.
Please remember to send your child to school wearing their faction shirt, joggers and sunscreen. Ensure they have a labelled hat and drink bottle for the day.
Year 1-3 students will spend the entire day at the carnival. Pre-Primary students will participate in the morning session (9.30am start) before returning to class for regular learning activities.
All children will be encouraged to display good sportsmanship and have ‘green thoughts’ on the day.
Parents are welcome to come and watch. There are large ants on the oval so bring a picnic rug or chair if you are spectating. See you there!
