Thank you to the students, teachers and community members who have welcomed me to the school. I am very impressed with how the students behave and work together. I have also found the staff to be very professional especially in their respect for each other and their outstanding care for your children. I am working closely with the P&C and I look forward to their meeting next Monday.
I am also meeting with COOSH and I can assure you that the valued service they provide will continue into the future. Yes, we are making some room changes to accommodate an additional class but every consideration has been made to ensure a smooth transition of routines and access for the students who attend COOSH. Once all details are finalised we will share the arrangements for 2020 with you.
The weather, I am sure you agree, has been a challenge to us all. We have adjusted our outside times when the air quality has been impacted by smoke generated by bushfires and on the very hot days the students have been kept inside or allowed outside to sit in the shade for short periods.
Please use these links to get up to date information and strategies for maintaining health during bushfires
LAB – Youth Empowerment Team - On Wednesday 13 November, I attended the celebration of Youth Empowerment - Student Voice at Victoria Ave Public School. The project aims to increase student agency and student voice in our schools. Our students presented to all school teams in the Strathfield Network about the Waste Free Warriors Project. The school was very well represented by Ms Canalicchio and Ms El-Hage and students Alexis E and Anuka S. Please read their account of the day and their project. Well done.
Message from Canada Bay Council
“We are developing a new 10 year plan for Timbrell Park in Five Dock – an important and popular park that many people across Sydney regularly visit. We are seeking input on how the community uses the park as well as suggested improvements and future aspirations for the space.
Until 15 December our community survey will be open for you to contribute and we will also be in the park 5 times to meet with community. The survey and more information can be found at https://collaborate.canadabay.nsw.gov.au/timbrell-park-POM. “
As the term draws to an end please be reminded that all students should be at school up until 18 December.
Thank you for your ongoing support for the students and staff.
