I hope that you had a good break and that you have come back recharged for Term 2. Being only 9 weeks it will fly along and we are looking forward to a great term. Welcome to the new students and families joining us.
Over the holidays we:
- Had the ‘mounds’ removed from around the trees in the ECE area to reduce trip hazards for students and staff.
- Have negotiated with Mulberry Tree for the installation of playground equipment outside Cluster 4. This generous gift provides another piece of quality playground equipment within the school.
Welcome to Mr Rykiel D’Mello to the staff. He will be working Monday and Tuesdays with Rm 1/2
Mrs Summers has changed to 3 days a week and Mrs Bradley will be working on the front desk, Thursdays and Fridays this term.
We are pleased to announce that we have successfully joined into a partnership with Story Dogs. They will be bringing a specially trained dog into the school to work with around 6 of our Junior Primary students. Our special dog will work with the students and listen to them read. We are excited with this new initiative (Thanks Mrs Williams). If you see the dog while you are visiting the school please remember that the dog is ‘working’ just like the guide dogs and should only be patted if the owner allows. Keep an eye out for photos soon!
Online NAPLAN will be undertaken in Weeks 3 and 4. While we are doing some preparation for it, it should be seen as a normal day for the students and we are trying not to stress them too much.
