The Year 2 students enjoyed learning some valuable skills last week with Registered Nurse, Romy Ottens. Students learnt how to respond to emergency situations, how to perform CPR on an adult, child and baby manikin, and also how to place people in the recovery position. Student thoroughly enjoyed the hands-on and interactive nature of this program.
Please ensure that all items belonging to your child are clearly labelled. Lost or misplaced items will be placed in the Lost Property Bin located in the bench outside the Kurrajong Front Office. Unclaimed items will be donated to charity at the end of the term. There are many items such as drink bottles and plastic containers that will be disposed of if not collected. Thank you.
Christmas Hampers for Mary Magdalene’s Centre
Once again Kurrajong families will be invited to donate items for Christmas hampers. Anglicare is hoping that schools will be able to provide hampers for the homeless and families on the poverty line. Class teachers will provide information to parents regarding the specific hampers for each class. A Christmas Giving Tree will also be set up in Kurrajong for Pulteney families who would like to buy a Christmas present for a child whose family cannot afford to buy gifts. If you would like to contribute when this is ready, please take a tag from the giving tree, purchase your gift and then place your gift with the tag under the tree. Please do not wrap the purchased gifts. Thank you.
Pulteney Storybook Series
Each Friday we will be sharing a storybook online read by one of our Pulteney staff members or students. Storytelling helps to build connections among people and improves listening skills that are essential in learning and in relationships. We hope your family enjoys listening to the books selected each week by members of our school community. This week you can view Reverend Tracey Gracey will share a book titled ‘Echidnas on Everest’ by Andrew John McDonough below.
