Students Learning Songwriting
We are very excited to have Mr. Kenny Byrka at T.M.P. teaching students how to compose, write and perform songs. Mr. Byrka has an extensive musical background and we are very fortunate to have him spending time with all classes. Each class will perform their original songs at an assembly and will also have their songs recorded by Mr. Byrka.
Dr. Henry Bishop Visits TMP!
Three Mile Plains District School welcomed Dr. Henry Bishop to the school on March 21. Dr. Bishop visited each class to provide hands-on lessons about the rhythms and traditions of African drumming.
Dr. Bishop’s visit coincided with the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. On this important day and every day, sharing music and learning about cultural traditions are ways that students can honour diversity and break down the barriers that contribute to racism.
SCHOOL UPDATE: FEB 22, 2017
Please continue to send in lunch orders in envelopes with your child's name, teacher's name, what they want to order and the exact change as this saves teachers a lot of time. We will continue with this practice for the remainder of the year. Please find a copy of the updated Lunch Menu under the Documents tab.
We also request that students who are being dropped off in the morning are dropped off between 7:55 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. This will also remain in effect for the remainder of the year.

Thank you everyone for helping make our last two fundraisers such a huge success! Our Fall Fair made over $1700.00 and our cookie and muffin campaign raised over $1300.00! All money will go towards supporting special events and activities at our school. All classes will also have the cost of a bus covered for a class trip!
