Term 3 Working Bee – This Sunday 10th September

Our working bee is this Sunday 10th of September from 10am-2pm. We will be starting work on our new sensory garden, painting a feature wall in the prep corridor and adding sand and soft fall to our playground areas. The Parents and Friends group will be supplying some plants and features for the sensory garden as a result of the funds raised at our Mini Mudder event earlier this year. We are eager to have as many helpers as possible on this day to get this exciting project started!

If you can come along please RSVP the school at drysdale.ps@edumail.vic.gov.au

Spring Fair 2017

We are having a Haunted House at this year’s Spring Fair for our students to “visit” – if they dare!!

Our Year 5 & 6 students will be working hard on making this as memorable and scary and possible.  To assist our students with designing and decorating the haunted house, we are looking for donations of items you may have.  This could include bats, cardboard skeletons, cobwebs, spiders, costumes or anything that you may have leftover from Halloween over the past few years.  Any items that would suit the Haunted House theme would be gratefully accepted. Please advise if you would like these items returned and if so can you please name them.
