While we are all aware that Remote Learning hasn’t been the easiest time for anyone, we can’t help but be extremely proud of our school community. Over the journey, our parents, students and teachers have all worked together to make the absolute best of the situation and support each other as much as possible. This has continued upon the return of our junior students with staggered starts and finishes. Our parents have all been incredibly supportive and we have watched our youngest members grow before our eyes as they have transitioned to walking themselves into school with courage and for the most part, smiles on their faces as they have said goodbye to their parents and walked themselves to their building. We have seen older siblings giving their younger siblings hugs good bye and even friends give hugs as they have supported their friends on the way in.
We are so incredibly proud of you all!
We would like to invite you to join us for our 2021 Foundation Information Evening to be held via Webex on Wednesday 27th May.
This evening will give prospective and already enrolled families an opportunity to hear from our Principal Andrew Moore and Foundation Learning Leader Samantha Cutcliffe.
As well as a presentation regarding our school, there will be time for questions.
Please find the link for the evening above, on our website front page.
We look forward to seeing and meeting you!
Wow, what a wonderful beginning to the year has been made by all of our student’s, including the smallest members, the four classes of Foundation students! They have actively participated in all aspects of school, including Specialist classes, a Twilight Sports night and also Assembly. They honestly seem like they have been here for seven months- not seven weeks.
We couldn’t be any prouder of them, their teachers, buddies or the rest of the students who have made their transition into school a successful one. We are looking forward to seeing how they grow, figuratively and literally over the year and we thank everyone who has been involved with them to date.
Today marked the announcement of our 2019 school award winners. For all year levels except for Year 6, three awards are given out per level. They are the Academic, Determination and Community Awards. At Year 6, the same awards are given along with the Physical Education, Japanese, Music and Visual Arts awards.
Before presenting the awards, Mr Moore discussed how difficult it was for the teachers to narrow it down to the final winners due to the pure amount of quality candidates across the school. He asked everyone to reflect as the awards were being given on their own year and ask themselves whether they had worked to their best this year. If they could answer yes, he reminded them to be very happy with themselves for their achievements.
Following the awards was the announcement of our school leaders for 2020. There was much excitement for the badge handover from the 2019 badge holders to the incumbents. We congratulate all of the winners but also give great credit to all students who went out of their comfort zone to put themselves through the rigorous process.
As a part of our continued commitment to safety online, we are holding an eSmart parent workshop run by the Alannah & Madeline Foundation at school on Monday 28th of October at 7pm. Please keep your eyes out on Compass for the notice as we would love to have as many of our parents & caregivers as possible!
