Exciting partnership with Eastern Regional Libraries
We are excited to announce that Rolling Hills Primary School have partnered with Eastern Regional Libraries (ERL) to provide each child with their own library membership. This will allow your child to access a vast range of research and literacy tools that we'll be using in class.
Students can borrow almost 50,000 ebooks and access several premium online resources, including Encyclopedia Brittanica and Literacy Planet. Additionally, you can visit your local library to activate the borrowing of real books. That's free too!
All you have to do is visit www.yourlibrary.com.au/students and provide your child’s details. Make sure you select Rolling Hills Primary School as the relevant school.
Once signed up, membership cards will be sent to our school and forwarded home with your child. We will keep record of membership details so students can access resources at school. If your child is already a member and you would like them to access the Eastern Regional Library at school, please feel free to provide their login details to Mrs Nettelbeck in our Library.
We encourage our families to be part of this fabulous partnership.
Have you seen our plans for our new Inclusive Playground?
We are excited to have received a grant from the State Government this year to construct all-inclusive play areas in our top area of our playground. Construction works will begin on 14th August and continue through until mid term 4. See the attached plan for details. You can also see pictures of the 3 different stages and what will occur during each one, in the office foyer. This is fantastic for our school and we look forward to it coming together. There will be areas fenced off during construction - please be patient and bear with us during this time. It will be worth it!
Our new Canteen menu for Winter is out now. Make sure you update to your new price list to avoid confusion in the Canteen!
