This is our major Christmas fundraiser! Our limited edition tea towel design will be made up of self-portraits drawn by all of our children and their teachers. The pictures and names will be arranged all together as a commemorative design for the whole school, then screen printed in red onto premium 100% white cotton tea towels. Don’t forget to order a few extras for family members (perfect for Christmas). Tea towels can be ordered by completing an order form available from the office. There is also a sample tea towel in the office for you to see an example!
Next time you come past the school take a moment to tread the boards of the new library deck. Wider stairs enables freer movement as well as a taller railing ensures the safety of students. It has been constructed of eco friendly Modwood which is made from reclaimed wood waste and recycled plastic containers! It is not only a sustainable product but lowers ongoing maintenance costs.
A special thanks to our generous parents who have contributed to the Building Fund that has enabled the replacement of the deck
A huge range of maths and coding texts have been purchased to support classroom learning. The resources will support students understanding of mathematical problem solving as well as coding skills and understandings. The texts were shared with the wider community at the final assembly of term 3. They will continue to support the growing range of STEM resources in the library and classrooms.
A special thanks to the generosity of parents and carers who have contributed to the tax free Library Fund that has enabled the purchase of the books. Each person's contribution has helped make all the difference.
Everyone in Year 1 and Year 2 has enjoyed an evening dinner together of pizza, chips, fruit and an ice cream! After a filling meal they were entertained by a magic show that amazed everyone. While the Year 1 students headed home the Year 2 students participated in a night walk. Spotting of tawny frogmouths, ringtail possums and wonderous stars were just some of the highlights. A movie left everyone ready for a great night sleep! Thanks to the staff and volunteers who helped bring the night together and celebrate another step on a journey of independence.
Everyone enjoys a dressup! It was no different at Rosanna Primary as students celebrated the richness of books at the annual Book Week Dressup. Staff and students gathered in groups during the morning, discussing their book characters and the books that they loved most. There was laughter and smiles as stories of adventure were exchanged. Everyone agreed that the day was a celebration and everyone left at the end of the day with a few more books on their 'Must Read' book list. Thanks to all who joined the fun.
Our STEM Garden is taking shape but we need your help. It is shaping into a wonderfully interactive space to learn and explore science and maths concepts. We need you to vote for our project and encourage as many families and friends to support our project as you can. Parents, students and teachers have collaborated to design this outdoor learning space and this grant opportunity is a chance to help fund it. All you need to do is register at Pick My Project and nominate our project called Rosanna Primary School Outdoor Discovery Space as number 1!
Well done to our 2/3/4 teams of inquirers who have explored ways they can make a difference. Students have been investigating the impact that we have on our environment. With a commitment to action that arises from their own investigations the team of learners wrote to Greenery seeking support. Today Greenery dropped off their donation of a cubic metre of sand to refresh the sandpit! Great to learn, even better to know that our learning makes a difference.
PLEASE HELP WITH DONATIONS TO RAISE FUNDS!
Our major fundraising event this year is our trivia night on 25th August. Money raised will go towards the STEM (Science, Tech, Engineering & Maths) Garden and towards replacing the Library decking area.
We are desperately seeking donations of goods or services from our school community and extended network of friends and families. Together the money raised makes a huge difference to our school. If you can please donate anything we would appreciate it ASAP as there are only four weeks to the big night. All donations can be left at the office with Ally.
All business that support our night will be acknowledged in our school newsletter, social media, signage and announcements on the night. Donations will be used for the silent auction, raffles and spot prizes. We would love a mix of larger and smaller donations.
Examples of donations include:
No matter how big or small any donation would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you for your help.
Friends of Rosanna Primary School (FORPS).

Thanks to all who joined our Working Bee on Saturday. It is always a wonderful surprise, perhaps it shouldn't be, of what can be achieved when working together. Parents and students revitalised the North Eastern entry into the school with the support of Banyule Council. It has transformed this part of our school. A new orchard area has sprung up in the space between the shady tree and the playground with thanks to LRXA who donated apple, pomegranate, plum and other fruit trees. We look forward on the warmer months around the corner when our efforts will gain fruit!
Greetings to our Rosanna Primary Website. Please feel free to meander through this reflection of our community. Visit our class blogs and comment on their great learning.
