MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU
You may know the significance of May 4th - International Star Wars Day. At this Albany Fair we will again be visited by our friends from a Galaxy Far, Far Away. On Wednesday May 4th, at school assemblies, members of Brisbane's Star Wars Group - the 501st Legion, will visit All Saints to help launch our Albany Fair. Students are encouraged to dress up in a Star Wars costume or outfit for the day, bringing a gold coin donation to contribute to the costs of the Fair. Please remember the Free Dress Day rules: closed-in shoes, no short shorts, sun-safe shirts, no inappropriate wording on clothes. You may like to get creative in what your child wears, but if you have difficulty in coming up with a Star Wars outfit, ordinary free dress day clothes is fine. May the 4th Be With You!
Our Term 2 Working Bee Date is on Friday 20th May at 3pm. The main focus of the Working Bee will be to tidy up the grounds for the Albany Fair. If you can spare a few hours on that date, I would be very grateful.
MOTHER'S DAY STALL
Our Mothers' Day Stall is being held on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th May. Each class will be visiting the stall to allow their students to purchase a small gift for their mums. Kathy Leddy and her team of volunteers have been very busy getting ready for this stall. A special thanks to Kathy Leddy and her team for running this stall again this year. Happy Mother's Day to all our school mums. I hope you have a lovely Sunday and are made to feel very special by your children.
On Tuesday 10th, Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th May, the Year 3 and Year 5 students will sit the NAPLAN tests. On Tuesday morning the students will do the Language Conventions and Writing tests, Wednesday the Reading Test and Thursday the Numeracy test. We wish them all the best for these tests and if you are on the school grounds this week please be mindful to keep movement and distractions to a minimum.
