At Pender’s Grove Primary School we believe in maximising the number of Foundation transition session we conduct so that our new students have a number of weeks across Term 3 and 4 to get to know us, and us them! We are very excited that our 2022 transition activities are starting this term on September 9th. We will be sending out information to our new Foundation families next week so please make sure you have finalised your enrolment with us if you have yet to do this. If you are still deciding on a school for 2022 please get in touch with us to find out more about our amazing little community school!

Unfortunately due to current COVID19 health advice we are unable to conduct on site tours. If you would like us to contact you directly when tours recommence please contact the school on 94841076 or email@example.com and leave us your details.
Alternately, if you do not need a tour but would like to schedule a conversation with our Principal via phone or video conference please let us know.
If you have already attended a tour earlier in the year and wish to proceed with enrolment please email or drop off enrolment forms by early August.
We were all very pleased to hear the news today that all metropolitan F-10 students would be back to school on site from this Friday June 11th. Remote Learning will continue tomorrow (Thursday 10th) and we look forward to seeing everyone back at the end of the week. We will send out more information on the school app about specific considerations for the return to on site as soon as we can.

Some ideas from our teaching staff that you may choose to do with your child while they are at home:
Last week was Book Week and our students were busy all week reading and being creative with this year's theme "Curious Creatures - Wild Minds". We weren't able to have a dress up day for families to come and watch this year but it didn't stop 12C making their own costumes and having a parade!
4/5A visualised their ideal book week costume and drew the character that inspired the costume
4/5s: Kindness keepers (keyrings) in response to Bat vs Poss.
F/1s: Animal hats in response to 'When Billy was a Dog'.
12C: Book Week Costume Creation!
We hope everyone has had a restful holiday. A reminder that remote learning returns for next week (Oct 5-9) for all students from the first day of Term 4.
All students (F-6) will return to on site learning on Monday 12/10. School start and finish will be staggered A-K (9.00-3.15) and L-Z (9.15-3.30).
Our OSHC program will be open as usual and bookings can be made via the school office. More detail about the return to on site learning will be provided to families next week. Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the sunshine!
The Premier and the Education minister have announced changes to Term 3 for schools.
On the advice of the Victorian Chief Health Officer, all students will be required to learn remotely from Wednesday August 5th. Onsite supervision will be available for students whose parents are permitted workers and vulnerable children.
