Friday Clubs

Friday clubs begin next week at YBPS. This week students will be asked to select their preferences for which club they would like to attend. Children will be given their first choice where possible. 

New Block Name

Our block is now called Marlak (mar-lark) which means bush. Our room is now called Marlak 2.


This term students are completing assessment to finalise their semester two reports as well we preparing for the transition into Year Two. Many students in Room 6 are missing days of school regularly and missing important lessons and information. Please bring your child to school because every day counts towards their success as learners.
