Week beginning Monday, 29 June 2020

Helicopter Happenings

This whole school STEM event will be held this Friday starting at 2pm for the Kindy and Pre-primary classes who will fly their helicopters in the early childhood area. All other classes will gather on the verandas (around the quadrangle) commencing at 2.10pm. Each child has designed and made their own helicopter with the aim of trying to make it fly for the longest amount of time. Parents are welcome to come along and watch. We ask everyone to please remember the one person per two metres physical distancing requirement.

Phase 4 at Millen

From today the following applies (with physical distancing of one person per two metres):

  • Interschool activities can occur
  • Pre-arranged parent-teacher meetings can continue to occur
  • Contact sport and training can occur and equipment can be shared
  • PEAC (Primary Extension and Challenge) can occur
  • Work placements can occur
  • Choir can occur
  • Incursions and excursions can occur
  • Assemblies can occur

Health, hygiene and cleaning arrangements will continue:

  • Additional funding to support the provision of cleaners on site during the day and to purchase the required supplies
  • Unwell staff and students need to remain at home
  • Regular handwashing and use of hand sanitiser for staff and students

We will update the calendar soon and let you know about all of the upcoming events in Term 3.

Sustainability at Millen

Are you keen to celebrate, develop and support sustainability practices at Millen? If so, please email Ms Hill as we are looking to coordinate an interest group from across the school and local community. The aim of the group will be to discuss, plan and action what we can do in partnership to improve our collective ecological footprint through a shared understanding and vision of sustainability at Millen.

Applications for Kindy & Pre-Primary 2021

Applications close on Friday 24th July. It is important that forms are submitted by this date as the school has to plan class numbers for 2021.

The Application for Enrolment form can be downloaded from the Millen website: For Kindy enrolments, please submit via email along with child’s birth certificate, Immunisation History Statement and proof of address.

Existing Kindy students enrolling for Pre-Primary only need to supply the form and an updated immunisation history statement showing the child’s 4-year old immunisations.

Documentation can be emailed to or dropped into the office.

Student Reports

Student reports will be available for you to access on Connect from Thursday this week.  No hard copy reports will be sent out this year. Please contact the office if you haven’t yet logged into Connect, or if you have forgotten your User ID or password.

Thank you to entire school community for working with us this term and adjusting to the changes so easily. I wish all of you a safe and relaxing time over the school holiday period.
