Stay Well this Winter

Symptoms of influenza (flu) can hit very quickly and may last several weeks. Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself and others from getting the flu.

Keeping our school community well

Parents, carers and students are encouraged to practice prevention measures, including:

  • washing and sanitising hands regularly
  • avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • covering nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing · staying home if unwell and consulting a general practitioner (GP) or Nurse-on-call as required
  • staying up to date with flu and COVID-19 vaccinations.

Flu vaccinations

Flu vaccinations can be booked through GPs and pharmacies, many of which can also provide COVID-19 vaccinations. Flu vaccination is recommended for everyone aged 6 months and over.

Some people are more at risk of complications from flu and are eligible for free vaccination as part of the National Immunisation Program.

COVID-19 booster

The 2024 COVID-19 booster dose is available for everyone aged 18 and above.

Getting your booster dose remains the best way to prevent severe illness or hospitalisation, especially in people aged over 65 and those at higher risk of severe illness.

Children aged between 5 and 17 years who are at risk of severe illness can also receive a 2024 booster dose.

You can get your next dose at your local pharmacy or GP. To find one near you, refer to the vaccine clinic finder.

National Reconciliation Week

National Sorry Day is on this Sunday the 26th of May, and will be followed by National Reconciliation Week.

RGLPS will base content around these important themes during Reconciliation week to enhance the theme in our own community. I know how articulate and passionate our students and I can’t wait to see them engage in the theme of ‘now more than ever.’


Take care.

Cystic Fibrosis - Free Dress Day

Friday 24th May

Every May, the cystic fibrosis community comes together for CF Awareness Month. The theme of this year’s CF Awareness Month is, “Resilient.”


Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disease in which the body makes very thick, sticky mucus. The mucus causes problems in the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. People with cystic fibrosis get lung infections often. Over time, they have more trouble breathing.


Friday 24th May will be a free dress day. We aim to raise awareness about cystic fibrosis and ask students to bring along a gold coin to donate to the Royal Children’s Hospital.


On Thursday 23rd May at 4:30pm, we will run the online OHS Induction course for any parent who completed the Classroom Helpers course last year and needs to renew their OHS component in order to assist in classrooms this year. The course will be held online via Webex and should take approximately 15 minutes.

Please log in to Compass to indicate if you would like to attend and a link to the Webex meeting will be emailed to you

Introducing Dennis and Sharalanda

The Grade 1 Team welcomed Dennis and Sharalanda into 1SV this week!

For our Inquiry Unit, students have been investigating how different animals grow and change throughout their life cycle. To support their learning, students will observe the changes of the stick insects. Students are looking forward to watching the stick insects shed their exoskeleton and seeing Dennis grow wings!.

Fun Fact: Did you know that when predators such as birds approach, the insect tries to remain completely still in order to blend with the branches. If a predator isn’t fooled and grabs the bug by the leg, it’s no big deal. The insect can detach the leg and scuttle away. It will later regenerate, or grow back, the lost limb.
