(Parents of 2019 Year 6 students - please scroll to the bottom of this page.)
Welcome parents of 2018
Please click on the three links below:
The Graduation Committee is a subsidiary of the P&C and is made up of a number of very enthusiastic Year 6 parents. The Committee is responsible for coordinating a number of events and activities for the graduating Year 6 class. This includes, but is not restricted to:
· Leavers shirts
· Production of a Yearbook
· Graduation Buy a Brick
· Graduation Ceremony in conjunction with the School
· End of year graduation celebration
How parents can help
There are times that we will need to contact parents with requests such as for a kindy photo of your Year 6 child, to compare then and now, or Yearbook orders later in the year. These requests will be circulated to parents individually, but all relevant graduation information and forms will also be kept updated on this page.
If you would like to be involved or require any further information about the Graduation Committee or graduation events please contact:
Christine Wardell-Johnson 0417 966 144
Photographs for Yearbook
An integral part of the Yearbook process is the collection and compilation of photos of all Year 6 events during the year. In order to cover all activities, we need the help of parents and would love you to share any photographs that you may take of Year 6 school events. Please follow this link for further information and to upload photos to the relevant folder.
Parent Supplied Photographs for the 2018 Graduation Yeardbook
Thank you for taking the time to supply photographs of our Year 6 students for the 2018 Graduation Yearbook. As you can appreciate, it is a big job to coordinate the photographs for the publication, so we are streamlining the process by using available digital resources such as cloud ﬁle sharing platforms ie; DROPBOX
On the following page is a table that identiﬁes the major events or areas for which we are seeking photographs. To the right of the event is link. This is a dropbox ﬁle request. All you need to do is click on the appropriate link and you will be taken to an upload screen.
Then follow the prompts and navigate to the photo/photos you wish to share and upload them to our folder. It is a very simple process.
To further assist us, we ask that your photographs meet the following criteria:
1. Be a JPEG
2. Be a really good photograph, something that would look awesome in the Graduation Yearbook.
3. Be no more that 300 dpi (dots per inch) in layman terms we don’t want massive size ﬁles, if its over 2MB it’s too big.
4. Naming convention is important for us to identify the photograph from the hundred others. Call the JPEG, your name with the date IE: SMITH12022016.jpg
5. Be unique. Uploading lots of similar shots is not necessary, one of each setting is plenty, and we thank you for it. However, feel free to upload more than one photograph for each event.

Welcome parents of 2019
Hi Parents and Caregivers of Year 6 - 2019 !!!
Traditionally the graduating year from Winthrop PS purchase leavers’ shirts, which they wear throughout the year. They are optional; however, the school prefers the shirts to be worn for graduation photos and end of year ceremony.
We have started this process earlier than previous years as we are keen for the students to start wearing their shirts as soon as possible. We hope to have an order in by late December, hoping the kids have their shirts by mid Feb 2019.
They will look the same as the current 2018 Leavers shirt, the fabric is the same as the Interschool shirts, with a list of the first and surname of each year 6 student on the back.
Sizes are possibly a little different than the current school shirts, so the children are being given the opportunity to try the sizes on.
Wed 28 November from 1:30pm the kids will have the opportunity to try sample shirts during school time. We will take each class and keep a record of the sizes.
The shirts will cost $35 each and they will not be sold in the uniform shop. Please consider carefully now how many you will require for the year as this is a one-time order only. We understand that they are more expensive than normal school shirts, but the students often want to wear them as often as possible. In previous years parents have bought two but this is up to you.
Please return the attached form with the cash or a cheque made payable to Winthrop Primary School P & C to the box in the school office by Monday 10th December 2018.
Any queries please call Jo Allen on 0422 510 453 Jo Allen, Susie Thong, Shellie Lumsden and Yas H
