1 June 2018
1: From the Principal –
In the last newsletter I challenged you
to look at what your children
are doing on their electronic devices.
This week I have excellent news.
Playford College has taken out
a subscription for three
wonderful educational programs.
Reading Eggs is designed for students
from Reception to Year 6.
MathsSeeds is for children from
Reception to Year 2 and
Mathletics is for students
from Year 3 to Year 8.
These programs will work
on Apple or Android devices.
Students have been given
log-ins for the programs they can use –
if they have forgotten their log-in
they should speak to their teacher.
These programs are fantastic
for our students –
it helps to support what they
are learning at school,
and they can continue with
these at home –
they can access these programs
anywhere and anytime on their devices
– so long as they have internet access.
Help your children to improve
their reading and their mathematics
by insisting they spend some
time on these programs –
they are challenging and fun –
and our children will be learning.
2: School Closed –
because of the Nights of Destiny,
Playford College will be closed from
Monday 4 June right through to Friday 8 June.
The school will also be closed on
Monday 11 June
because it is a public holiday.
Eid Al Fitr could be
Friday 15 June or Saturday 16 June
– if it is on the Friday,
the school will be closed.
3: School Uniform –
Parents are reminded that
the winter uniform must
be worn during
Terms 2 and 3.
Some things to consider:
there are 3 uniforms –
do not mix and match items –
it is not acceptable
sports jacket only goes
with sports uniform –
do not wear with winter uniform
sport shoes only with sports uniform
the blazer IS a compulsory
part of the Playford College uniform
Girl’s winter uniform
Boys and Girls winter with blazer
The uniform policy can be viewed and downloaded from the school website:
4: Can Drive for Anglicare Elizabeth Mission
– students from the Social Justice
Committee are organising a can
drive to collect food that
can be donated to homeless people.
Anglicare Mission is just one
of many charities that work
hard to help less fortunate people.
Homeless people are at record
numbers in Australia.
The social justice committee
is asking students to bring full,
unopened cans of food to school,
where it will be collected and
then presented to Anglicare Mission
in Elizabeth to share with the homeless.
Examples of cans that can
be donated include tins of tuna,
baked beans, sweet corn, tinned fruit.
This is only a suggestion –
there are many different cans
that can be donated, but
the important thing is to
donate food cans that have a long life.
This way the food can be
eaten straight away, or some time later.
5: Next Newsletter
will be Friday 15 June.
Fi aman Allah (swt)
Regards and du’as
Around the School:
Miss Mayer’s class has started
a topic on food and has planted
a crop of winter vegetables.
