Dear GHSS Families,
Our Spring Djilba Festival is this week, on THursday, from 8.40am. We are celebrating this special time of year as we farewell Winter and Makuru and enter a time of blossoming and new growth.
We look forward to parents joining us on Thursday, from the very beginning of the school day, to make Spring garlands with your child's class, on their class verandahs. For those who can, your garden contributions of vines, greenery and spring blooms will be greatly appreciated to assist in the creation of the garlands. Programs with the words to our songs will also be available in the classes and we encourage you to take a copy so you can sing along with the children to our Spring Festival songs.
A reminder that many staff will be travelling to Perth after the Spring Djilba Festival to attend Steiner Schools Day at Perth Waldorf School. Parents are welcome to take children home at the conclusion of the Festival at 1pm. Children remaining at school will be supervised by Lisa, Heather and Ellen.
A reminder that withdrawal notices for 2021 are due in by 3pm on Monday, October 12th, the first day of next term, in order to avoid being responsible for Term 1 fees for 2021. This does not apply to those students in Class 6 who will be moving to High School for next year.
Wishing everyone a wonderful break, starting from our Pupil Free Day on Friday. We look forward to welcoming everyone back for Term 4 on Monday, October 12th. A reminder that Term 4 is a "No Hat, No Play" term, so don't forget to dust off a broad brimmed hat ready for the playground!
Class 3/4 sleepover has been deemed a success! The children were very excited to spend the night in their classroom surrounded by their peers. An evening of board games, craft, dressing up for dinner and spotlight has indeed proved exhausting, but oh what fun!!
IN-TERM SWIMMING LESSONS

If you are moving on and leaving Golden Hill for 2021, please ensure that a Notice of Withdrawal has been submitted to the office in writing no later than 3pm on Monday 12th October 2020.

23 Sep 2020
1:30 PM to 2:30 PM
The P&F will hold their next meeting on Wednesday 23rd September in the new Staff Room at 1.30pm.
Agenda items as follows -
- Spring Clean Fair
- Afternoon Tea & Coffee Morning Feedback
- New Chair and Treasurer needed - Penny will be stepping back as Chair from the P&F from the September meeting. It would be great to recruit a replacement in 2020. All the hard work has been done. We are an association, have a TFN and ABN and have all the information to create our own bank account. It will be great to see the P&F continue on in 2020 and beyond. Heath will be here until the end of 2020 but will be relocating to Queensland for the next school year.
- Class 6 have requested $500 for their class Graduation from the P&F funds.
Kambarang Hands in the Earth Day - Saturday 17th October 2020 - 10am till 4pm
Are we all ready to emerge for Kambarang Season?
Hands in the Earth Community Days run by Kristi & Pen to provide a beautiful opportunity for us all to be together in Nature. To slow our pace down and for our children to have an extended time in the bush river area. This will be our fifth community day and they just get better and better. If you want to have a slow quiet day, you can hide in the bush. If you want to be social, sit near the circle. If you want to be busy there is so much to do to help the bush area or learn a new skill under Kristi's guidance. If you want to relax, its all there for you. Please bring what you need to be comfortable in the bush area.
Please bring own plates and cutlery (some provided) and bring something for a healthy shared morning tea.
Tea & Coffee are provided all day with a veggie curry & rice.
Minimum $5 donation per person or $20 per family. If you can donate a little more and would like to, please do.
Special Workshop for all the Dads/Grandads/Uncles & Their Children at the Kwoorabup Markets (Aged Toddlers to Teens).
Come along and join Kristi for this fun workshop over the school holidays. Learn about wood weaving & rope work and build fresh ideas for bonding with your children in nature.
Meet at the Earth Station, behind Peppermint Cottage Shop, at the Golden Hill Steiner School.
Mum/Grannies/Aunties's can enjoy the Kwoorabup Community Markets and then the whole family can grab lunch after the workshop.
$20 if booked online or $25 on the day.
