Dear Parents, Children and Community Members,

Welcome to Term 4, the final term of 2020! And what a year it has been! The term will fly by!

The children have returned to school after the break, recharged and ready for a very busy finish to the school year. Teaching and learning programs are well underway in classrooms, and children are back into routine.

Thank you to our cleaning staff and gardeners Gaston, Steven, Fereweini, George and Peter for all their work in preparing the school for Term 4.

There are some staffing changes at Victoria Park PS for this term. Mrs Hayley Russell will be commencing leave at the end of this week and she will be replaced by Mrs Rachel Berry (Monday to Thursday) and Ms Sisca Lukito (Friday). Mrs Coupar has re-located to another school for the term and has been replaced by Mr Daryl Kee. Mrs Jo Brennan in Kindergarten has been replaced by Mrs Tammy Bizzaca (Friday). We wish those staff leaving, albeit temporarily, all the very best while we welcome those joining us for the term.

Staff spent Monday 12 October, reviewing 2020 data and planning for 2021. Outcomes from the day will be discussed with the School Board members at a special meeting later this term.


Even though we still had restrictions due to COVID-19, Parent Night was very successful at both Planet Street and Cargill Street. Parents enjoyed the opportunity to look in more depth at their child’s work as there were not as many people in the room with them. With smaller numbers, parents also had more opportunity to talk to their children about their work.

I’d like to thank both staff and parents for making this occasion work as many schools cancelled their open nights due to the restrictions. It was not perfect with some parents concerned about their allocated time, but on the night it worked out well. Many thanks are extended to all involved.

The contractors are making good time and it is lovely to see the building start to take shape. There have been a few challenges with power outages and the underground power project, however the construction team are overcoming all obstacles so we are very grateful for their hard work and diligence. The contract for re-surfacing of the basketball court has been finalised and as soon as I hear I will share the plans with all.


Staff have been seeking feedback from the students about the use of the playground this term. We are aware that we need to include additional activities for children now that the athletics season is over and children are not going to Raphael Park as much. We have been working on a number of strategies to implement commencing in Week 3 and these include: Raphael Park for Years 3-6 one day per week, dress-up box near stage, loose parts play and activities in the library. The final set of activities will be dependent on being able to cover duty across all of these areas.

We would welcome any unwanted items that you think would be suitable for a Dress-up Box. We will make sure all items are laundered regularly.

Congratulations to our Artist of the Term. In Term three the theme was “Fluffy animals”. The Junior winner is Selina in Year 3 Room 2, for her very soft and fluffy looking rabbit. The Senior winner is Anshul in Year 5 Room 5, for his very fluffy and friendly looking wolf with whiskers.

Term one winners were never announced due to COVID-19. The theme in Term one was “Shoes” and the Junior winner was Timur Year 2 Room 21 for a realistic and detailed line drawing showing close observation of the shoe. The Senior winner was Fiona Year 6 Room 12 for ballet shoes with complicated ribbon and delicate colouring.

In Room 19 we have mastered the art of fractions (half and whole) with our “sometimes” food choices (pizza, marshmallows... and lemon). What a fun maths lesson!
