Semester One Repots – Social development statements

As part of our review of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) we have changed the social development descriptors used at the end of the reports. We feel these more accurately describe the skills and behaviours we are looking to develop and enhance with our students.
The statements we have developed will change and show some progression as the students move through the school. They are listed below for your information.

 Makes appropriate behaviour choices
 Respectfully listens and shares their own ideas
 Is able to share and take turns
 Builds and maintains positive relationships
 Asks for help when needed

Just a reminder that tomorrow Thursday 23 June will be our Mufti Day. Students can come dressed as their favourite sportsperson. Please remember to bring a gold coin as all money raised will go to Mission Australia. Mission Australia’s integrated nationwide services help people find safe and affordable housing, support disadvantaged children and families, empower troubled young people, assist people with mental illness and disability, and much more.

Mortimer Shield Gala day

Congratulations to all students involved in the Mortimer Shield last week. The students played all matches in the right spirit and the girls League Tag team qualified for the finals which will take place in July. Well done girls!

Makeup photo day
MSP Photography have been in touch and they will be at the school on Friday 24 June at 9am to do a make-up hour for students that were away on the day of the photos. Could all students can be dressed in full winter uniform for their photo please.

Covid/Flu like symptoms
We are currently experiencing a large number of students who have Covid or the flu. If your child is experiencing Covid or flu like symptoms please do not send your child to school. Your cooperation with this would be appreciated.

Values Focus


The more I work in the community around Wagga the more I am hearing statements such as “I’m not religious”, or something similar. But what do people mean by that? Does that mean “I don’t believe in God” or is there something more to that statement? Because religion according to the good old Britannica is “human beings’ relation that which they regard as holy, sacred, absolute, spiritual, divine, or worthy of special reverence”. So going by that, everyone would have a religion of some sort, but what does that look like for you?
For King David, who wrote a lot of the Palms, he says:.


Protect me, LORD God!
I run to you for safety,
and I have said,
“Only you are my Lord!
Every good thing I have
is a gift from you.”


For King David, every good thing comes from the God of heaven and Earth, that is where he goes for safety. Everyone has a place they go to escape from life, to escape to ‘safety’, whether that be local sports, AFL, the pub, hanging out with friends, your sheds. We all have places we run to for safety and where we want to go to recharge. No matter what your religion is, it takes courage to follow it, to be a loyal supporter of an AFL team at the bottom of the ladder for 3 years. To play a sport that you enjoy, it takes courage to turn up to training every week, face the opposing team, and even more courage when you lose.

However for King David and many Christians, even some of you in the school. You follow God and He is your religion, that is where your courage comes from, where you find safety, where all your good things come. Having this eternal source of courage is a real gift, something that keeps you going, even on the darkest and wettest Winter nights. So if you ever hear someone say to you “I’m not religious”, can I encourage you share where you get your courage from and why. You never know you may hear what religion is in their life.

Grace and Peace

Curriculum Matters


One Day Chess Tournament

The one day chess tournament is being held today in the Resource Centre. The school chess club is brimming with chess rookies and today, 38 students played for the title of ‘Lutheran School One Day Tournament Champion’.

This is a fantastic opportunity for students to experience an extra curricular activity that appeals to their interests.

Thanks to Mr Gardner for organising this event and for running such a successful club.


The SpellMaster competition has been a fabulous experience for all students who participated. The oral round was held on Monday and the grandfinalists have been announced. Good luck to all of the students involved. The SpellMaster Grandfinal will be held on Friday 1st July at 12 noon in the Chapel.

Blank Section


This week we all enjoyed some time outside, on Monday playing on the monkey bars, having a game of tennis in the undercover area and some imaginary play near the kindergarten rooms.

We have been creating with sand art, constructing with paper and plastic straws and decorating wind chimes.

The magnetic marble run and sensory toys continue to be an afternoon favorite amongst the children.

Vacation Care:

Please be advised that the July school holiday program is fully booked. If you missed out on a place please contact Bec or Mel and we can add you to the wait list.


You would have received an email on Tuesday 21st June from OSHC to complete a Survey about dietary requirements. We are doing this to try and better understand and cater for children with allergies and dietary requirements. If you could take a few moments to complete this survey it would be very helpful for us. Thank you.

We look forward to another wonderful week.
