Principal’s Message, Term 3, Week 2
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
This week we have learning conferences. As I have shared with you previously, a reminder that Wednesday 29th July is a teachers only day with school being closed for instruction on this day. Learning conferences will be held on this day as well. After school on the 30th July if there are any conferences to complete we will hold these after school, starting at 3:00 pm until 5:45 pm to finish the conferences. If you have any questions about learning conferences, please feel free to contact your classroom teacher.
The only exception for learning conferences are the students of Mrs Burns and Mrs Patrick’s classes. Parents of students in these classrooms have been contacted already and have had their learning conferences.
The school gala has raised significant funds for the school in the past few years. As you may be aware this year money was raised for STEAM and play-based learning. The teachers will be reviewing these areas and placing orders very soon.
The last two years the funding was allocated to support our school beautification, of which some things have been purchased and included the picnic tables. We have an idea to write our school values on the poles at the Fairfield Road entrance along with creating a more inviting space to enter our school, with some playground equipment for our younger students. At the moment the board are reviewing our school values in alignment with the positive behaviour management system (PB4L) that we are introducing into our school. Once this process has been completed we will be in a position to start the beautification process. I will share more on this later in the term. It is very exciting to begin a project like this where everyone in the community will benefit.
