From the Principal – Term 1 Week 3

We have had another fantastic two weeks at APS. Our students have settled into their new routines beautifully and there is lots of learning already happening in our classes.

It is so lovely to wander about our grounds and see so many happy students and staff and wonderful to see our awesome parents back on site as well!!

Parent Teacher Interviews – 22 March

Please place in your diaries that on Monday 22 March school will finish at 11:30am.

I have received approval to close early so that we can offer parent-teacher interviews throughout the afternoon. There will run from approximately 12:00 – 5:00pm.

Times and bookings will commence later in this term. We will be using an online booking system this year to streamline and organise our bookings. Keep an eye out for this upcoming information.

Dogs on School Grounds

Please be aware that dogs are not permitted on school grounds, even if they are on a leash. This is an Education Department requirement.

Whilst your precious pooch may be the sweetest natured pup, with lots of children around, behaviour can be unpredictable. Please keep your four-legged friends at home

School Board Membership

Are you interested in contributing to our school via the School Board? This is not an onerous job and we would love to have some new parents join us

Please see the information in this newsletter and nominate if you are keen!


Our P&C is running their biennial Lapathon later this term. We will need as many volunteers as possible to help out to make this huge day a success.

If you can help out, please contact our P&C for information at albanyprimaryp&

Glass Water Bottles

A few children have unfortunately dropped glass water bottles, resulting in smashed glass. Could you please send your child with a non-breakable alternative so we don’t have broken glass

around our kiddos. Thank you!

End of 2020 Assembly DVD

If you would like to purchase a DVD of our final assembly for 2020, please send $5.00 with your child to the classroom teacher and we will get this to you. Final orders to be in by Thursday 25 February please.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone – we are already one third of the way though our short term!!
