From The Principal – Fortnightly updates
Walk to School Day
Congratulations to the students who walked to school last Friday, it was cold but still a lovely day to walk. A big thank you to the parents who promoted this event this year and stood out in the cold welcoming students. Thank you to Gilberts and IGA for the donation of fruit.
Now that the National testing is over, we return to normal business. There were some small connectivity issues during the testing, particularly the writing. We have looked at this closely and decided that they were not significant enough to impact upon students’ performances. My impression and the feedback that I have received is that our students were all quite relaxed during the testing and the interruptions didn’t cause too much stress. We now look forward to the results arriving a little earlier this year.
Year 5 Camp
In 2 weeks’ time Ms Holsgrove, myself and a parent will be taking the Year 5 students on camp to Point Peron. I am a strong believer in the positive outcomes from camp. Students get to see and explore a range of new things and it is a great eye opener for them. Camp is full of opportunities for personal growth and they will be challenged. Each year we have found that camp has forged better relationships with the students and that each of the students has grown in some manner. Wish us luck with the weather!
Week 5: I proudly wear my uniform.
Week 6: I initiate and respond to greetings.
