From the Principal
The ACCDD community comes together every year to recognise Harmony Day. It is a day when staff, students and their families come together and participate in activities to celebrate inclusiveness, cultural diversity, respect and a belonging for everyone. The continuing message of Harmony Day is 'Everyone Belongs'.
The bible tells us that God greatly values us, regardless of our place of origin or culture. We are told that God created each one of us and was there with us in the womb, and that even the hairs on our heads are all numbered by Him. That is why Jesus told us to love one another, because that is what God does.
”A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
ACCDD Parents and Friends
The Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday 9th April at 6:00pm. This is a special meeting where the positions of President, Treasurer, Secretary and Class Representatives will be decided. If you think you would like to take up one of these positions, you can complete and return the nomination form which has been emailed to you, by Friday 6th April. You can nominate yourself for one of the committee member’s positions, even if you cannot attend the meeting on Monday 9th April. You will need to be at the meeting to vote.
Childminding will be available, however please email Joan at [email protected] to book a place.
Coles Sports for Schools
The Coles Sports for Schools program is nearly complete. We have until the end of the term to collect any Coles Sports for Schools vouchers you may have at home.
Every $10 spent at Coles will earn a Coles Sports for Schools voucher. The more vouchers our school collects, the more sports gear we could receive. Place your vouchers in the box located in the front office.

Our Principal, Jacqui Burrage, would love the opportunity to meet with new families.
ACC Playgroup is for children 0-4 years old. Feel free to let your friends and neighbours know they are invited. The ACC Playgroup meets every Tuesday morning 9:00am -10:30am. Mrs Watson, our Music specialist, runs a session at 9:00am - it’s not to be missed! For more details, call 9391 1500 or email [email protected].
Starting ACC’s new music program from scratch is both a privilege and an adventure. As I spend time with the students each week my excitement grows as I see their confidence and musical ability begin to shine.
Be sure to come to this week’s Harmony Day assembly where you will be able to hear all of the children sing a song prepared especially for Harmony Day.
Next term another facet to the music program will begin in the form of private instrumental lessons. Students have the option to be taught by experienced peripatetic teachers in a choice of instruments including: piano, guitar, trumpet and vocals.
Forms were sent home to families earlier this term. To ensure your child’s spot in the program, please return your form by Tuesday, 10th April, 2018.
Primary Happy Snaps
ACC is a place of wonder and learning, where children are challenged to grow in all areas. They are also keen to share their learning with their parents. Check out this week’s Happy Snaps and ask your child what they learnt.
