Week beginning 18 October,2021

School Strike 4 Climate Action

Last week a letter regarding Friday’s strike was sent home to all parents. This letter was prepared by the Department of Education and all school principals were asked to send this home to their school community.

As the Principal of Millen, I am very proud of our focus on sustainability. I look forward to seeing our school’s work continue in the classroom and through the amazing work of Planet Millen.

Interschool Swimming Carnival in 2022

Up until two years ago Millen Primary School had participated in an interschool swimming carnival. However, we experienced some challenges and decided to withdraw from this competition in 2019. Recently a few families have expressed an interest in Millen participating in this competition once again. In order to determine whether we have the student numbers to form the required swimming teams I would appreciate your assistance completing this quick survey.

Here’s the link to the form “Expression of interest – Interschool Swimming 2022 “:  Expression of interest

Calendar & Cards Student Art Fundraiser

In an effort to reduce paper wastage, a Connect notice was sent out last week with information about how to order. The preferred ordering method is online directly through Crazy Camel at  but a few paper forms are also available with your child’s class teacher and at the office, and full information is in the attached flyer.  Order Form Flyer

The deadline for orders via the school is Monday 25th October, or 27th October if ordering direct with Crazy Camel.  

Our students are doing an amazing job of caring for people and place at Millen and we are creating some repurposed vests for them to wear. All the preloved vests have been washed and cut and we have had some patches printed. How we need you help! We are looking for a small team of sewers to take a small pile of vests and attach the patch to the back. Please contact Ms Hill if you or someone you know might be able to help
