We attempted to send the newsletter home with the eldest in the family today, but as classes were mixed up due to the Arts Extravaganza, we may have missed some! Our apologies if one hasn't made it home today!
There will be some tickets available at the door tonight, but to avoid disappointment we do recommend pre-purchasing through trybooking: www.trybooking.com/jkkb.
The Doxa Camps Program provides the opportunity for more than 5000 students, teachers and support staff from the state’s most disadvantaged schools to enjoy an educational and enriching camp experience that their life circumstances might otherwise preclude. Students from all parts of Victoria are able to participate in valuable experiential learning, which enhances their classroom curriculum.
In January 2016, Doxa is committed to running five Summer Camps for around 200 children from Grades 5 through to Year 7.
The attached brochure contains further information and the key points are summarised below.
· Each Doxa Summer Camp is 5 days in duration with a choice of two locations; Doxa’s Malmsbury Camp (75 minutes north-west of the Melbourne CBD), and Doxa’s City Camp (in Melbourne CBD).
· The all-inclusive fee per camper is $45. Any family unable to pay this can apply for a Doxa Campership to ensure that no child misses out due to their family’s financial circumstances.
· Doxa Summer Camp is a great deal of fun and provides children with a range of exciting age-appropriate activities.
· All Doxa Holiday camps are facilitated by a combination of Doxa staff and volunteers. Each staff member possesses a Working with Children Check, a National Police check and any other relevant activity specific qualifications.
Doxa has extended this offer to more students from our school in grades 4, 5 or 6 in 2015, who would love to join us for a Doxa Summer Camp experience.
Nominations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis and our closing date has been extended to 8th November 2015.
Doxa Summer Camps offers many exciting activities and opportunities for all campers, especially for girls, with many of our female campers’ favourites such as Horsemanship, Music & Drama, Climbing Tower, Archery and more again on offer this year. Our camps are facilitated by quality female, and male volunteers and staff who inspire all young people to achieve greatness through positivity and encouragement.
If you or your families should have any questions regarding this opportunity, please do not hesitate to contact our camps team.

Today's newsletter was sent home with the eldest in the family. Also sent home this week were information about the upcoming busking week, and the roster for Prep - Gr 2 swimming, which begins on Monday.
The newsletter was sent home with the oldest child in each family today.
A personalised version of the reminder below went home with all Grade 5 and 6 students who have outstanding camp notes/payments.
GRADE 5 and 6 CAMP REMINDERS
Just a reminder that all notes and payment for the Grade 5 and 6 camps must be received by this Friday, 11 September.
An extension to this date is not possible, as we are required to send final numbers to the camp organisers. If we have not received the above by Friday, your child will be unable to attend camp.
Today's newsletter included a notification for grade 5/6 students that headlice have been detected in those grades. We ask you to please take the time to check your child's hair for eggs and live lice, and treat if required. We would also appreciate you contacting us, in this instance, so we can keep our community informed.
Today's newsletter included an order form for the Father's Day Stall and a personalised camp note for Grade 5/6 students. Electronic copies of these notes are not available, but if you did not receive either of them, please call in at the office for a spare copy.
Today two notes were included with the newsletter: a request for help with next Sunday's "Trash & Treasure" fundraiser, and important information for families of students with Asthma. The notes can be downloaded from the links below, and the newsletter can be found here.
