Summer Literacy Package for students going into Grade 1, 2 and 3
Your child has brought home a package of Literacy activities that should help them keep their skills sharp. Take a peep at the video we have created to help you with this learning.

School Starts on Wednesday September 7th, 2016
Class lists will be posted, at the front of school, on the Friday of the labour day weekend (the Friday before we come back to school). Please remember to bring your child's OEN number (found on the report card or official documents) in order to identify your child. On the first day of school, please proceed to either the Kindergarten outdoor play area (for Kindergarten students), the Primary/Junior blacktop or Intermediate blacktop. Teachers (wearing bright yellow/orange duty vests) will assemble with signs from9.00am (the start of supervision). There will also be lots of other staff around so just approach one of them if you need help.
(Please note Tuesday September 6th is a PA Day and All Staff will be busy with school based learning and preparation during this day)
NEW! Look out for our new publication: The Falgarwood Flyer
Each month we will be providing you with lots of information about what has been happening at school and ideas for parents to help in the learning partnership. We hope to include student voices, classroom learning and a celebration of the wonderful experiences at Falgarwood. Stay Tuned!
E-Waste Collection a Great Success!
Many thanks to all those families and friends who came out to recycle their old electronics and clothing. We filled up the collection bin by nearly a third - that equated to 1.4 tonnes!! $301 will now go to our Eco Team who will use the funds for Eco events during the next school year. Well done to Mrs Stone and the staff team who helped out during the weekend as well as the students who created the advertising. We hope to repeat the event next summer so start saving up those donations today :O)
Thank You for a Yummy Lunch!
The staff at Falgarwood wish to say a special 'Thank You' to everyone who contributed to the staff lunch. Also a huge shout out to friends and School Council members who helped us with supervision so that everyone was able to get a bite to eat during the break. What a great community we are a part of!
