Although, from the outside, it may look as though little has happened on our building site, plenty has been happening around the outside and underneath of the old building.
The play equipment along Alexandra Road has been dismantled, inspected and placed into storage. It will be re-erected in time, as shown on the plans, between the new administration building and the old hall. The shade sails may also be able to be reused but the poles will not, unless they are galvanised inside to conform to safety regulations.
Trenches have been cut and dug into the asphalt around the north and west ends of the old building with conduit laid in readiness for the relocation of power and Telstra services. Demolition will take place as soon as the required infrastructure work is done by SP Ausnet and Telstra technicians.

Dad's Night with Mal White
The small group of dads that joined us last night enjoyed a yummy BBQ tea and entertaining and informative session with Mal White – Good Dads Great Dads – who runs sessions and writes a blog for dads that want to be the absolute best dad they can be for the sake of their children, and provides practical ideas on how to build a stronger connection with your children and enjoy a life-long closeness with them. It was a great opportunity for dads to meet other dads and learn about building relationships. There were lots of positive comments and new friends made.
A big thank you to Marg Kittelty and Marie Beale for their organisation and catering.
School Council Elections
Nominations for the four vacant parent member positions and one DEECD employee position closed last Friday 21st February. As the number of nominations equalled the number of positions vacant a ballot is not needed and I declare the poll complete.
We warmly welcome Adrian Infanti, Alex White, Robert Dark and Chris Cowin as parent members and Marie Beale as DEECD employee member of 2014 School Council. Every member brings expertise, skill and special interests to council which benefits the school enormously. I look forward to working with the new council in this very exciting time for Eastwood Primary School.
I would also like to officially thank Peta Murray and Esther Watson, retiring council members, for their years of service to school council and its various sub committees. I have had the privilege of working closely with them both and the school has benefited greatly from their time, expertise and exceptional efforts in support of our students. Thank you, Esther and Peta!...Read More
