Week 6 – Commencing Monday, 16 November, 2020
Millen Dads Campout
This year the campout attracted a record 142 Millen Kids and Dads! Everyone had a great time. Millen Dads would like to give a shout-out to Derek and Lee from Baston Property for covering the Sunday morning coffee again this year, and also to Sarah from Our Ruby Girl Café for providing the coffee van and salads for dinner.
Please note the Millen Dads group is always happy to hear from new members and they can get in touch at email@example.com or search for Millen Dads on Facebook.
The design for the resurfacing of the quadrangle has been finalised. We have been able to include a second, smaller basketball/netball court, tennis courts and six square. The resurfacing will provide increased opportunities for sport during PE lessons, reinvigorate the area and create a safer surface. We look forward to the reveal in 2021!
Student Booklists for 2021
A CONNECT notice was sent on 6th November with details of the 2021 Student Booklist requirements. Full information and individual lists are also on the Millen website at http://millenps.wa.edu.au/enrolments/book-lists/
Planet Millen has been listing some of the things our school does that help to reduce our environmental footprint.
For example, at Millen:
- the student toilets are flushed with rainwater collected in the two big water tanks next to the toilet block
- we use energy-efficient light globes
- we have Greenbatch plastic collections (big shout out to Room 3 for taking this on) to enable recycling of hard-to-recycle plastics.
Don’t forget: every Wednesday morning is Greenbatch & Containers for Change collection day.
- Swimming Lessons continue this week, finishing on Friday – please refer to the lesson schedule on the Millen website calendar if you need to.
- Parenting Workshop – Raising Children in a Digital World – Tuesday 24th November, 9-11am
