A Message from Sandra Gray

Welcome back to what promises to be a very full and exciting Term 4. Please refer to the latest Term 4 Parent Calendar (available on SPACES) for all details.

2017 CLASS ALLOCATION

The process for allocating students to their 2018 classes is well underway. It is my intention to inform you of your son’s new 2018 class before the end of this term. Boys will have the opportunity to meet their new teacher on “One Up Morning” on 30 November. Please note that the deadline for parent input into the process has now passed and unfortunately as such, I cannot consider further requests.

NO SPORT ON MONDAYS

Due to the swimming program in Term 4 there will only be sport training for Years 3-6 on Wednesday afternoons. Boys in Years 3-6 may wear their sport uniform to school on Wednesdays.

THE LION KING

Congratulations to all involved with the Wyvern production of The Lion King in the last week of Term 3. It was an amazing production with all boys in Years 5 and 6 playing a starring role. Special thanks to our Musical Directors Alina Belshaw, Isaac Williams and Elizabeth Hilberding, and our Director Ms Tamara Smith. Thanks to Ms Meredith Buining and Mrs Yelena Rubie in our fabulous Wyvern Art department for helping to design and make props.  I also wish to thank all the parent volunteers who assisted with costume and prop making and with face painting. It truly was a team effort.

NEW ZEALAND TOUR

During the spring break Mr Wilson, Mr Brunton, Mr Hazleton, Mr Lowrie and Mr Trethewey (Lindfield) led a very successful Wyvern and Lindfield rugby and soccer tour to New Zealand. The 43 boys from Year 6 represented the school with enormous pride and should be congratulated for their superb spirit and fine conduct. The biannual tour involved games in Christchurch, Dunedin and Invercargill, before some fun activities in Queenstown. The tour was a great success on and off the field, with some amazing matches and cultural experiences enjoyed by all.

Thank you to the teachers for generously giving their time in the school holidays and for taking on the huge responsibility of travelling overseas with relatively young students.

YEAR 5 CAMP

This week we wish Year 5 boys and teachers a safe and enjoyable trip as they head off to the Great Aussie Bush Camp at Tea Gardens. I am sure they will enjoy this outdoor education experience which links well with many of our school’s Building Learning Power attributes.

Please note that Summer Sport (Round 7) commences this Saturday.
