What a start to our Colour Fun Run, over $10,000 so far towards our $20,000 goal.
We look forward to hosting the Fun Run on Friday 29th October at 2pm. More information will be forwarded next term.
As we look back on Term 3, we begin to realise how many exciting events happen in our school on top of our daily routines. Some of these have included: Sports Day, School Soccer, Cross Country, Book Week, Science Week, AFL Max camp, Reception excursion to the zoo, year 6/7 Girls Football- Crows Cup, SAPSASA events including Basketball, Hockey, Soccer, AFL and Athletics.
Thank you to all the staff and parent volunteers that have supported our programs throughout the term.
Toni Zuanic will be taking maternity leave at the end of week 1 in Term 4 and Fiona Prentice will return from leave and will continue the learning program in room 14. We wish Toni all the best with the rest of her pregnancy and beyond.
Miss Brittany McKay will continue in the Room 18 Year 6/7 class until the end of the year.
Jess Searle will return as AET for Term 4 whilst Victoria is on LSL.
Congratulations to Kate McGee - 10 Year service milestone award, Leah Koen – 20 Year service milestone award and Helen Biar – 40 Year service milestone award. Thank you to your contribution to education.
NAPLAN reports have been distributed to all families of students who participated in NAPLAN this year.
NAPLAN is a snap shot of your child’s achievements in comparison to other students of the same year level in Australia.
NAPLAN is just one measure of your child’s performance. Le Fevre Peninsula Primary School uses various tests or measures of achievement in the areas of literacy and numeracy. The results of these assist in providing learning programmes for students and are reported to parents through our written reports in Terms 2 and 4.
Should you wish to discuss your child’s NAPLAN results, please contact your child’s teacher to arrange a meeting time.
Staff will analyse the results early next term.
Class Placements 2022
Currently, we are looking at numbers of children for 2022 so that we can begin the class placement process. It would help our planning if you know of any changes for next year (eg if you are moving etc and not planning on returning to Le Fevre Peninsula Primary School) if you could let the front office know as soon as possible.
Also, if you know of any families considering enrolling at Le Fevre Peninsula Primary School for next year, could you please let them know to contact us at their earliest convenience.
Finally, if you have any specific requests for the placement of your child, (friendships etc) please put them in writing to me using the note recently sent home.
Please note that while requests are taken into consideration, there are no guarantees that they can be acted upon.
Thank you for your support.
Thank you for your on-going support.
It’s fantastic to see our students in school uniform, in particular our school shirts and jumpers.
However the dress code identifies that students should wear navy blue pants/shorts, etc. Acrylic nails are not permitted.
A friendly reminder that hats are a requirement in Term 4. If your child requires a new school hat you can purchase these from the front office.

School resumes on Monday 11th October.
Thank you to Sarah, Jess, Karen L, Gary, Patrick and Cameron who supervised Room 19 and Room 22 at the AFL MAX Camp held on Wednesday night and Thursday.
A very special congratulations to students who were amazing! They all demonstrated our values of Respect, Responsibility and Effort for the entire camp.
The positive feedback from school staff and AFL MAX staff was fabulous. Well done to all involved.
Congratulations to the following students who represented Port SAPSASA. Oliver & Miss Prentice at SAPSASA Hockey. Campbell, Jack F-S, Bernard and Matilda at the State Athletics Day. Special mention to Matilda for getting 2nd place in the high jump!
On the 16th and 17th of September, we were lucky to attend the Aboriginal Education STEM Conference. Due to covid restrictions we were only allowed to have two students attend the two days, Darcy and Shaelah were the lucky students this year.
The days started early and we were on the 8.25am train heading into the Convention Centre. There were over 250 students from various schools around the state. Our students heard from speakers such as Bruce Pascoe who wrote the book 'Dark Emu' as well as Elder Uncle Moogy.
Some of the activities that our students chose to participate in were visiting the Makers Empire where we heard from start up business owners and entrepreneurs, how to use native plants for traditional purposes where Darcy was a big fan of the lemon myrtle tea. We finished the congress with an elders walk and talk at Adelaide Oval.
Overall we hope the students had fun and enjoyed learning a bit more about our cultural history and future ambitions.
The congress was really well organised and run by the YASTSA group which stands for 'Young Aboriginal Stem Thinkers of South Australia'. We look forward to attending again next year and hope that we will be able to take more students with us.
Jess and Darren
