Term 4 Week 3
The Brass Bedlam school show was a hilarious romp through time and space, exploring music from around the world. From Moscow to Mexico, from Star Wars to the Simpsons, this musical journey left our students inspired and delighted.
Bike Ed session days week 1 was a great success.
Before school Basketball academy
This is a huge hit with over 150 children attending our basketball development program, for prep-6 students of all abilities who want to improve their overall game. It continues to run for next 7 weeks. Each student who participates will has an individual program to follow each week and will progresses through a range of defensive and offensive skills whilst playing lots of fun activities. This is a great opportunity for any student who wants to work on their game, get out on the court and have fun with friends.
We thank the 14 Rosebud Secondary Students who are coaching in the program. Students are encouraged to train in basketball gear (even wear a team jersey if they have one) and then change into their school uniform once the session has finished.
Division Softball finals
Congratulations to our Softballers who won the Division Championship on Friday and are now off to the Regional Final

Market was fantastic on Saturday 8th October, thanks to all the grade 3 parents teachers and children and all our regulars that helped make it such a success.
Monday: work will continue on the oval laying grass and landscaping around the school, could you please ask all children to keep away from the work in progress.
Tuesday The Rugby Clinics for our senior students, taken by the Melbourne Storms Mitch Cook (ex Rosebud Primary School) were a great success.
Thursday congratulations to Taran and Breanna on their efforts in the Regional Athletics,
Friday: Hands on learning continues construction of the Mermaid area, and garden beds around the school
Newsletters will be put on line on the last Thursday morning of every month. Year level newsletter will also be published on the app and website.
The school newsletter is essential reading for every parent, we also ask that you leave the app notifications on your phone turned on. In case of emergency, this is our hotline to you so make sure you are active on the app.
The Sentral portal will open soon to help with parent/teacher communications. We also ask that you keep your email address and phone numbers up to date with the office. We have had a number of times in the last week when we have tried to contact parents with no success. Your Email is going to be used more and more as a means of contact.
Parents please be mindful that staff meetings are on Monday and Tuesday after school, so if you need to see a teacher could you please do it on other nights unless it is urgent.
In saying that though, it is important that no child goes home without an issue being dealt with. Encourage your children to speak to a teacher if they have a problem
Report documents are being reviewed and we are trying to make the report as concise and meaningful for you as possible. We welcome your feedback.
Our 6th Episode of RPS weekly news was published near the end of term 3. It was great to see by the end of term the students taking full control and ownership! I am looking forward to re-training a crew for term 4 and getting more episodes online. If you want to have a look at some of our older videos, feel free to visit us.
Currently this is only accessible to RPS students and teachers, so if you want to have a look, you can ask your student to log in with their Google account!
