May 2019 Newsletter

Welcome to Silverton Primary School's e-Newsletter.

Dear Parents,

Officially, I would like to welcome everyone back to Term 2.  It has already has been a very busy start to the Term. 

House Cross Country

All students were involved in our annual House Cross Country Day. The weather was fabulous and our students participated with great enthusiasm. A big thank you to Mr Blundell for your amazing organisation and our student leadership group for their assistance, in making this such a successful event.  Well done everyone!!

Open Night

The 2019 Open Night was held last Wednesday. The evening commenced with families enjoying the music while having a sausage, and was followed by the Glee Club performing on the green area. All the learning spaces were open for viewing while the two school bands, and dance troupe performed in the gym.  Thank you to all the families who came along. 

Book Fair

Book Fair was another huge success. As a result the school will receive over $1200 worth of books to add to our learning centre libraries.


The NAPLAN tests are being conducted for student in grades 3 and 5 on 13, 14, 20 and 21 May.  Students in these levels must make sure they have a set of Headphones and their computers are fully charged. 

2020 Prep/Foundation Tours

Tours of the school will be conducted throughout Education week, 20 – 24 May for prospective families who wish to consider enrolling their children here next year.  Already we have people registered to attend these tours.  If you would like to participate or have friends who would like a special tour please contact the office on 9795 5033 for an appointment. 


Thank you to the whole school community for supporting all the Parents Association fundraising events, the children are really enjoying the new playground.
