Term 3 School Spirit Awards


Monday was the last assembly for the term, which meant it was time for the School Spirit Nominees and Award Winners to be announced.


As we have said in the past - selecting a winner is always a difficult task as all of the nominees are deserved recipients and this term is no different.


Listening to the awards being presented at assembly, it was obvious to see why the students were nominated as they all displayed the 4C’s that are the heart and soul of our school.


There were also a number of nominees who show great kindness and care towards their peers all of the time.


Below is the list of nominees and on the next page, the award winners. Congratulations to all of these students on their wonderful achievements. 


Staff Changes


As we farewell Term Three, it is also the time of year when we say goodbye to three members of our staff and welcome new teachers to the Dandenong North family.


Mrs Connell has been at DNPS for 12 months and is heading back to her former school Heatherwood to work with the year 12 students in their VCAL program. We wish her all the very best in her next educational setting and thank her for the fantastic contribution to our school in the short time she has been at Dandenong North.


Taking over Mrs Connell’s role is Mrs Tsering Sherpa. Mrs Sherpa comes to us from Baltara School. Mrs Sherpa will be working in all year levels, assisting teachers in their classrooms and developing our students. Mrs Sherpa is a welcome addition to our staff - we are sure she will enjoy her time at our school.


In another staff change - Miss Cadman is leaving to await the birth of her first child. Miss Cadman has been teaching at our school for 3 years, beginning as a CRT and be-coming a permanent member of the 5/6 team. Miss Cad-man will be missed - however she is undertaking a new ad-venture and we wish her all the very best.


Replacing Miss Cadman is Miss Wilson. She has been working in 5L since the departure of Mrs Fields. We are sure that she will continue to develop the students in 6C in the same manner that Miss Cadman has.


Lastly, Mrs Howarth is leaving Dandenong North Primary due to the birth of her second child which is due in early November. We wish Mrs Howarth all the very best for her maternity leave.


Miss Ong has been a permanent member of staff at DNPS for this year. She has taken Miss Advic class in Term One and has been working both in the Preps and Year Ones throughout the rest of the year. We are sure that the students will enjoy their time with her in the classroom for the rest of the year


Lost Property


Lost property items continue to pile up outside of the Multipurpose Room! There are lunchboxes, drink bottles, hats, and a must have item for Winter- jumpers! We would ask that if your child has misplaced an item - please take the time to check the lost property pile. A reminder to parents to please write your child’s name on all items - including lunch boxes and drink bottles - as this allows us to return these items to their rightful owners! 


Hats for Term 4


The year has flown by and next term is Term Four and that means it is time for students to wear their school hats during all outside play. This includes play and lunch times as well as all outside sporting events.


As Dandenong North is a Sun Smart School it is expected that students will wear a navy blue school hat (broad brimmed or legionnaire), during Terms 1 and 4 of the school year. All children should have their own hat and it should be brought to school every day or alternatively it can be left in classrooms.


Hats can be purchased from the uniform shop for $12.50.


The hats provided by the EAL teachers are only for borrowing in case of emergencies or forgetfulness. Some class teachers have “spare” hats that can be borrowed in emergencies - however there is an expectation that all children will have their own school hat. Please ensure your child has the correct school hat for the beginning of Term 4.
