Welcome to the last week of the school year!
This term seems to have flown by in a bit of a blur for us here in Matawara, but it has been hugely exciting and rewarding!
After Camp Wellington, we have all been busy writing and practicing our speeches. Year 7's, CONGRATULATIONS on your wonderful 'leadership lessons' speeches, and the Year 8's all did STUNNING valedictorian speeches!
The following Year 8 children have been selected by Juliana, Linda and myself to present their speeches at our end of year events. Congratulations to you all!
YEAR 8 DINNER -
Next week, we can look forward to our Year 8 Dinner on Monday evening, and I know there is a large team who are making sure that things will look gorgeous, and go smoothly for this event to happen. We look forward to seeing all Year 8 families there in their finery!
REMINDER - this dinner is a non - alcoholic event.
SECRET SANTA -
Copy of the email sent home last week ...
It is a long standing tradition in Aspire, that we have a 'secret santa' to mark the end of the year, and it would seem that this year is to be no exception!
All children of Aspire, are invited to bring a $5 wrapped, unisex gift to school, so they can participate in our 'gift stealing' on the final Friday, before assembly. ALL GIFTS NEED TO BE IN AT SCHOOL BY WEDNESDAY 11 DECEMBER.
If you would prefer your child did not participate, can you please let us know.
Thank you for supporting this! We know it is a busy time of year, and this will be one more thing to add to your long list of to dos!
Please remember to hand in your permission and health booklets to Mrs Morrie - these are due on FRIDAY 6th of December. There are a large number of you who have not returned these.
2020 - TERM 1
* WEDNESDAY 29th JANUARY : Goal setting day
* THURSDAY 30th JANUARY : School begins
Finally, from all of us in Matawara, we wish you and your family the most restful, wonderful holiday break over Christmas, and we thank you for your ongoing support over 2019.
It has been a fabulous year with many memories made, and we know that our Year 8's heading to their first year of High School are going to have a fabulous 2020!
To those families who are leaving Clarkville with their Year 8's, thank you! Many of you have had a long relationship with Clarkville, and we have highly valued your input to your child's education in the many and varied ways you have done this - your children are so lucky to have such supportive families!
All the best,
Kristie, Linda, Hayden and Helen.
