Murrumburrah Public School NEWSLETTER - Monday 26 oct 2020 Week 3, Term 4

Our vision is to ensure every child has a sense of belonging to our school and they are confident learners who reach their full potential. We are committed to delivering rich differentiated learning in a nurturing environment.

Dear Families,

Today is my first day back at school after taking extended leave. I am very excited to be back with the students, my workmates and to touch base with families as best we can in the COVID world.

In my absence, the school has continued to thrive under the watchful eye of Mrs Ford. I am very grateful to all the staff for going the extra mile to ensure our students receive every possible opportunity to learn and to have fun!

The school grounds look absolutely beautiful. Thank you to everyone who has worked so hard to establish the new garden, paint the new sensory wall and to keep the spring growth under control. What an amazing season we are having... here's hoping we get a good harvest this year.


We are excited to announce we will be rolling out the new Online Enrolment System from Monday, 26 October 2020.

The Online Enrolment System is designed to provide flexibility for our parents to submit an enrolment application online and at the time that best suits you. The application can be accessed on all browsers and mobile devices including iOS and Android.

The online application process is currently restricted to:

• Enrolments into local schools only

• Children who are Australian citizens, New Zealand citizens or permanent residents

• Children who live in NSW.

We offer our support and encourage you to complete your application to enrol online. If, however, you do not feel comfortable completing an application online, a paper copy will be available for collection from the front office or can be downloaded from the Murrumburrah Public School website.

Further information about online enrolment can be found on our website here:

Kindergarten 2021 - Transition Dates


Last Friday, students at MPS participated in our annual school walkathon. The theme this year was Favourite Book Character and it was fantastic to see such a wide range of ideas and colours on display!

The rain held off as students ‘walked’ (ok, ran) alongside their peers, friends and teachers in an effort to raise money for our school. The excitement and joy witnessed was testament to what an inclusive school we have here at MPS, with everyone from Little Red Riding Hood to George the Farmer enjoying the music and fun!

The Cat in the Hat showed just how remarkable ‘his’ talents are when he created a fairy teacher from thin air and ‘his’ army of ‘Things’ ensured the event ran smoothly. Our SRC kept everyone cool with some Zoopa Doopas and water breaks and the School P&C worked incredibly hard to ensure students were well fed after their exercise!

PRIZES for Best Dressed Boy & Girl were awarded to the following students:

KC: Jordan Dyball and Ella Mahoney

K/1D: Darcy Carter and Lucy Stevens

1D: Sophie Ford and Alec Weston

2I: Nate Essam and Georgia Jones

2M: Buddy Dare and Kirralea Porter

3G: Halle Brown and Lachlan Daley

4L: Shelby Abnett and Harry Power

5BE: Will James and Olivia-Grace Challen

5/6K: Isaac Brown and Nia Raptis

We are looking forward to announcing the winners of our Most Money Raised by the end of next week Be sure to collect sponsorship money and return it to school ASAP! All proceeds go directly back into MPS!

Thank you to parents, students and families for the effort and organisation you have put into this year’s costumes! We think it will go down as one of the best! See you all (hopefully!!!) in 2021!!
