Important Message Regarding Melbourne Cup Holiday


Dear Families

Welcome to term four!

In true Collingwood fashion, we have jumped straight into our teaching and learning, and our fantastic community has launched into preparations for the Spring Fair.

This is just a quick note to remind families that Tuesday the 4th November is Melbourne Cup Day. No students are required at school on this day.

In addition, the school will be offering a modified program on Monday 3rd November. In order for us to plan this properly, we ask that you use the form below to let us know that your child/ren will be attending school on that day.

If we do not hear from you, we will assume that your child/ren will not be attending school on this day.

Please fill out the form below and return it to your class teacher as soon as possible.

For those classes taking part in the summer swimming program, this begins on Wednesday 5th November.

See you at the Spring Fair … and maybe even at the year 5-8 production!  – go to for tickets.


Kind Regards


Keir Jasper

Principal of the Primary School
