Cultural Celebration Week

In week three of Term Four, 21st -25th October, BEPS will be hosting a Cultural Celebration Week. We will celebrate the diverse cultures that make up our school community.

Our culture at BEPS is influenced and shaped by the various intercultural experiences that
are brought to our community by each member. These experiences are communicated
through stories, food, dance, music, art and language.

The sharing of your cultural experiences with the BEPS community will help us make
Cultural Celebration Week a very rich experience for the students at BEPS.

Cultural Celebration Week

In week 3 of Term 4 2019, BEPS will be hosting a Cultural Celebration week. It intends to feature and celebrate the meld of cultures that make up our school community. Our stories, food, dance, music, art and language lay at the heart of how our culture is shaped and communicated. At this stage, we are requesting from our BEPS community to help, by enlisting to share your family photos, stories, recipes, music, artefacts and anything else you may wish to share.

If you are able to assist us, please contact your child’s LC teacher letting them know what you would like to share, and the age group that it would best suit.

As the week gets closer, we will contact you with further details.

Project Survey Results

Results from our recent forum and survey are detailed in the report in the Newsletter of Monday 3rd June.

The summary is that of the “Big Ticket Projects”, over 50% of parents, carers and teachers suggested that the accessible entrance was a priority for BEPS, followed by the colourfuls, and then the court cover. The students have expressed the wish to have the colourfuls improved, followed by the entrance and the court cover.

With the “Easy Win Projects” the parents, carers, teachers and students have expressed a desire to have a new bike shed built to cater for the overflow of bikes.

Make sure to check out the more detailed report which articulates some of the thinking behind these ideas further in this issue. Dowload the newsletter from here.

Prep Enrolments 2020

If you have a child (sibling of someone already here) who will be attending BEPS in 2020, can I ask that you get your child’s enrolment form in as soon as possible.

If you know other parents in the area who want to enroll their child here next year, can I ask you to please mention enrolment to them and get them to come along on a tour?

It is really important to know the number of siblings and those in our zone so that we can accurately accommodate students outside our area where possible.

Enrolment forms can be downloaded here.
