Our FPS 2021 School Council has been very busy this week with a training and induction session. Councillors and staff from both Mount Alexander College and FPS joined forces to learn about and discuss the roles and responsibilities of a school council. It was also a great opportunity for councillors and staff from both schools to meet each other. Next Monday 10th May 6pm, our FPS School Council will be meeting with a special presentation from Glas Landcape Architects and Kosloff Architects regarding the playground designs funded through the Flemington Education Plan. These works are due to commence this September. If you are interested in attending school council, please RSVP to our office firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 9376 7137.
Fun Friday Afternoon-Friday 14th of May 3.30-4.30pm sponsored by BIG Childcare
Next Friday 14th May will be a FREE fun afternoon sponsored by BIG Childcare for all FPS families. Our oval will have a magician, pop corn, a jumping castle and fairy floss. Come along and join in the fun!
Welcome Classroom Volunteers
A huge welcome to our parents, carers and grandparents who have started their work in our FPS Reading Hour as classroom volunteer helpers. We are grateful to this team of volunteers who completed training and have now commenced supporting our students with their literacy learning.
FPS staff enjoy celebrating this special day with your children. Just a reminder that we are unable to hand out bags of treats or party invitations in our classes. We also ask that families are discreet and show sensitivity when handing out birthday invitations in our school. Some of our FPS students have special dietary restrictions, allergies and also families who are sensitive to their child being provided food/candy without their consent. We always recommend checking with a child’s parent/carer beforehand.
FPS Book Fair is coming
The FPS Book Fair sponsored by LaMont is coming to FPS from Monday 17th May to Friday 21st of May 3.45-4.30pm in our Science Room. This is a fabulous opportunity to top up your home reading library, support your child’s interest in books and also our school library. All money raised is used to buy more books for our FPS Library.
Compass Information Session-Monday 17th May 2.30-3.30pm
Do you want to learn about Compass? This Compass information session will show you how to find school reports, newsletters and permission slips. Please RSVP to our office email@example.com or phone 9376 7137. Interpreters will be available.
Congratulations to our education support teacher Gabriella who has been appointed at Avondale Primary School. Thank you for your work and dedication at FPS and we wish Gabriella all the best in her new role.
Happy Mothers’ Day to all the special FPS ladies in our community. Mothers, carers and grandmothers have a special role and it is nice to take the time to say “thank you” for all the big and little things that you do. Thank you to the Foundation students for a wonderful “pampering” session- it was lovely to see mums, grandmothers and dads enjoying having their nails painted, mini massages, jewellery making and craft activities. Plus a very big thank you to our P&C and all volunteers who donated gifts for a wonderful Mothers’s Day stall.
Wishing all our families who celebrate Eid an Eid Mubarak!
2022 Foundation Enrolment
Applications for Foundation 2022 enrolment are now open. School tours take place each Wednesday during Term 2 at 9.15am led by the Principal and student leaders. Please book at the office if you wish to attend.
If you have a child due to commence school next year, please collect the enrolment forms and enrol your child by the end of Term 2, this being 25th June. Should you know of a child due to start school next year, who lives in our enrolment zone - refer to https://www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au/, please remind parents to hand their enrolment forms in during Term 2.
Visitor Sign In
Parents and carers are reminded to sign in at the office each time you visit the school.
A reminder for parents/carers, when calling the school on 9376 7137 to report your child absent, please dial 2 to leave a message. The office staff will record all absences from these messages.
Picking up students for appointments
Parents/carers, when booking personal appointments for students, please make these appointments after school hours. If appointments are to be made during the day, the preferred pick up time is at the beginning of recess and lunch so as not to disturb their class learning times.
Late pickup of students
Parents/carers, if you’re going to be late to pick up students, please advise the school as early as possible. Staff are not always available to supervise students past 3.45pm. We encourage all families to enrol with Big Childcare to support both the students and parents/carers should there be a situation like this arise.
Please be advised that the office will be accepting cash payments, however we do prefer payments to be made via bPay or eftpos.
Please contact the office if you need your bPay details.
