Last Wednesday, 5th September, we hosted a ‘Regional Debating Day’.
Six schools attended and we also had three teams (18 students) from BEPS participate. Our teams did an excellent job. They were all very well prepared and took their roles very seriously. There were different topics -‘That afterschool sports should be compulsory’, ‘That all students should have to learn an Asian language at school’ and – ‘That children should not have to participate in Reality Television’.
Five out of nine teams from BEPS won their debates – and congratulations to Amy, Saul, Oliver, Gaston and Olive for receiving a ‘Best Speaker’ award.
Fathers’ Day DISCO + GAMES NIGHT
This year we will not be having a Fathers’ Day Stall! Why? Well, we are trying something new. In our modern families, one of the ways that we can say just how special, important and loved the members of our family and wider family are, is to spend time together. In May, we traditionally spend time with our mums and in September we celebrate our dads. This year we are encouraging the students to bring their dad, or any other important male figure in their lives, to come along to a disco and games night. Bring the ‘whole’ family, your friends, and make sure that we celebrate all the important male adults in your life.
Please see the flyer further along in the newsletter and come along and have some fun. I will be there, but don’t let that put you off. I promise to behave, at least once during the night. This is always a great night, parents have put in a huge effort and the evening has always been a great laugh – even if you can’t answer the questions. Just make up the answers like I do. There are no prizes for creativity but everyone gets a laugh.
Please remember that we have a working bee THIS Saturday, 1st September. More details to follow.
Pick My Project
Please get in there and encourage everyone you know, over 16, to vote for this project. It will enable us to open up our grounds to the community after hours and enable us to get some improved play equipment and facilities. The details are on a separate poster further along in the newsletter.

Planning for the Twilight Market, our biggest fundraising event of the year is entering full-swing. We need lots of people to engage now to smooth the way for a fun, exciting, stress-free community event. Come along with your ideas and talents to talk about how we will bring this event to life in 2018.
Attendance is not commitment.
Many hands make light work.
This year is usually a concert year, however we are trying out a new performance focused event over three days (14, 15 & 16 August) called Curious Wonders.
Instead of having one big event, we will have smaller performances across the school at BEPS which means:
- Students can have more input into their performances
- Audiences are smaller and we can use spaces within the school
- We can celebrate the learning that takes place in Curiosita & LC’s
Prep, 1, 2 & 3 Performances:
- Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th of August during school hours. The LC performance locations (within the school) will be confirmed closer to the date.
- Tuesday 14 August will be Terra Verde 9:30 – 10:15am and Bicicletta 2:40 to 3:30pm
- Wednesday 15 August will be Preps 9:30 – 10:15am and Alveare 2.40-3.30pm
4, 5 & 6 Performances:
- 456 Performances will take place over two evenings on Tuesday 14th & Thursday 16th of August from
- Students will be allocated one evening to perform and this information will be
confirmed and sent out in the coming weeks.
