"Foundation" - the new Prep
Moving into the 2015 school year, Beaumaris Primary School’s Prep year level will be known as Foundation year level. This move is in line with the National Curriculum and creates consistency among schools across Australia. As well as changes to our class names for next year, this will also mean that our Prep Playground will be known as the Foundation Playground. I’m sure this will take some getting used to for students, teachers and parents alike!...Read More

How to make your lunchbox 'naked'
Today we were lucky enough to welcome Nicole Avery - who produces the popular blog "Planning with Kids" - to Beaumaris Primary School. Nicole spoke to our current parents and 2015 Prep parents about how to best make a nude food lunch box.
Nicole is a busy parent of five school age children and after producing a significant number of lunchboxes over the last ten years, she had some great tips about what to include in a lunch box and also the best way to eliminate packaging from the items most commonly used in lunch boxes.
