Crazy Hair Day
This Friday 13th March we will be colouring / shaving / braiding and crazy styling our hair to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation.
Students can come to school with “Crazy Hair” for a gold coin donation.
We will meet in the undercover area at 2.00pm to watch as the staff shave / colour.
If you would like to donate there is a donation box in the Beeliar Primary School office or you can follow the link to the Beeliar team page: https://secure.leukaemiafoundation.org.au/registrant/TeamFundraisingPage.aspx?Referrer=%26Referrer%3ddirect%252fnone&TeamID=117692
Swimming Lesson Payments
All parents are reminded that swimming lesson forms and payment ($30) is due by next Tuesday 17th March. Please see forms below that have been sent home previously and don’t hesitate to contact the office if you require any additional information. We anticipate all children will attend but please let us know if there is a reason why your child is unable to participate.
A Healthy Lunchbox
Healthy lunches and snacks are important for keeping active kids alert and focused and providing them with the nutrition they need every day.
A healthy lunch box should include:
- Fruit – at least one serve of fresh seasonal fruit. If you don’t have fresh fruit, canned (in natural juice) is a good substitute. Dried fruit is high in sugar and should be avoided
- Vegetables – vegetable sticks, salads or a mix of raw (with dip) or grilled vegetables
- Dairy – one serve of milk, yoghurt or cheese supports optimal growth and development in children. If your child can’t tolerate dairy provide a suitable alternative.
- Protein – lean meat or poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, or legumes/beans.
- Grain foods – wholegrain and high fibre varieties are best.
- Water – the best drink to keep children hydrated.
Try this as a lunchbox:
- lean ham and salad wrap
- banana and handful of grapes
- sliced vegetables (carrots, cucumber, tomatoes)
- handful of cheese cubes or add cheese to wrap
- bottle of water
Remember, children who help plan and prepare their own lunch are more likely to eat it. Your child might like to try out this fun, ‘Interactive Lunchbox’ website: www.goforyourlife.vic.gov.au/hav/articles.nsf/html/index.html
