Education Week is an initiative by the Victorian State Government and is usually held in May. The purpose of celebrating Education Week in May of each year, in all government schools, is to extend the positive relationship and partnership between the school, the families and the community. Research has clearly indicated that students are more likely to be engaged in their learning if these relationships are positive ones. Preparing our children for the future is a huge challenge and one that we need to focus on as educators and as parents. Activities throughout Education Week at BUPS include an Open Morning, an Open Day, a Book Character Parade, and other specific subject focus activities. All parents and friends are warmly invited to attend. Information regarding these activities will be advertised in the Newsletter.
