Remember Curriculum Day Tomorrow

The staff will work on finishing some important schoolwide curriculum tasks. Students do not attend school on this day.

Newcomb Library

This week we had Nicky from Newcomb Library come to the school to explain to students the many ways they can use the library. We encourage all families to get a Library Card from their local library. You are able to access so many wonderful resources free.

Evacuation Drill (Moolap Tennis Courts)

This week we had an evacuation drill to the Moolap Tennis Courts. This is an important drill for when we have to evacuate the school premises. Our students did a good job moving quickly and quietly. Next week we will be practicing a Lock in Drill.

Geelong Cup Day (Wednesday 25th October)

This is a public holiday for government organizations in Geelong. The school is closed.

Lolly Drive - Thanks MCG

We are so fortunate to have hard working parents working on the MCG who organize fun events and fundraise for a new programs and facilities at the school. Thank you to those families who placed orders for the recent lolly drive.  The next MCG meeting will be on Monday 23 October at 3.20 p.m. in the Staff Room.  All welcome.

NEW Canteen Service starts wed 01 November

Thanks to the MCG and School Council, we are excited to announce a new canteen service for our students commencing Wednesday 01 November. We have been able to retain the services of Sprouts Kids to provide canteen style lunches to our students on Wednesdays. All ordering is completed online at the following site.  http://www.ouronlinecanteen.com.au/

Information is available on the school’s website regarding how to register, copy of menu etc. Cut off for lunch orders is 8.45a.m. on the morning of delivery day (Wednesdays). Flyers have been sent home with students today.

Icy poles and drinks will continue to be sold from our canteen each Friday, please contact the office if you are able to assist on Friday’s.



Extend are requesting parents complete an on line survey regarding the demand for BEFORE school care at Moolap.  Flyers have been sent home with students.  Link for survey is https://goo.gl/9Be4bK

Just a reminder that EVERY WEDNESDAY is now a Nude Food Day. Please try to minimise the wrappings students bring to school on Wednesdays. Use re-usable containers instead! Thanks for helping keep our school clean! Follow our progress on the website!



We were all very touched by the videos and talk given by Dianne last week. Your children’s positive response and heart to care for others was on display. I spoke to many parents and guardians afterward and said I would post the link to the Operation Christmas Child website. We will be collecting for this, attempting to fill our own shoebox or two until November 18th. The website has the list of types of items we can donate.


This week saw us begin student led activities with the Farago sisters instructing others on how to make stress balls. If you or your child would like to run a game, activity, craft or have an idea please let me know. The sun allowed us to open up our wall of windows and flow out into the courtyard. This is going to be a fantastic season to grow creativity, respect, understanding and ourselves as individuals.

See you next week!!
Emily Dakos, Team Leader
