From the Principal’s Desk – Term 2 Week 9

Here we are at the end of another busy term. It certainly has been an interesting one, with the impact of Covid well and truly being an ongoing issue. I am cynical in thinking we will back to ‘normal’ next

term (in fact, I wonder when this will ever be the case!) but am sincerely hoping we have healthier staff and students and less interruptions to our weeks. I am very appreciative of the support our parent community has given us; especially your understanding about changes in staffing over the term due to relief shortages.

Free Dress Friday 17th June

Thank you all for your support on Friday for our Free Dress Day
to raise funds for Camp Quality. We raised a fabulous $518.05!! Camp Quality are visiting us today to give our students a puppet show, and we will be telling them of our super effort. Camp Quality do amazing work in supporting children with cancer and their families, from counselling, education, fun experiences and camps.

Semester 1 Reports

On Wednesday 29 June student reports for Semester 1 will be sent home via Connect. As always, if you have anything you wish to discuss with your child’s teachers, please phone or email to make an appointment to speak with them.

Active Transport

It is great to see the number of students in the mornings riding, walking or catching the bus to school. This certainly helps alleviate traffic issues, particularly in the afternoon, but also instils in our students a more environmentally friendly approach to getting to school.

Mr Carron and the Your Move team will again be running the Active Transport challenge next term, with an exciting prize for the winning class on offer!

Mountain Bike Track

Our students are really enjoying the use of our Mountain Bike Track. Sessions before and after school are well attended and I thank our parent volunteers who are helping with these.

A reminder that we need to have a parent permission form for all students who attend. This information is on Connect for you. On days where there is not a before or after school session running, students are not to ride the track as there is no supervision.

I hope the school holidays are a chance for you all to recharge and relax. Monday 18th July is a School Development Day and therefore students do not attend. We look forward to seeing students back on Tuesday 19 July.
