I hope you have had a lovely week and are looking forward to a well deserved rest this weekend. This weekend we celebrate Mother’s Day and I want to thank all of you for your contribution to our students, school and to your families. It has been a lovely week with the R-2 students visiting the Botanic Gardens and enjoying an Indigenous focus walk with Trent a Kaurna elder. Rich cultural experiences are an important focus for us at Basket Range Primary and provide valuable learning experiences for our students and as you can see by the photos much enjoyment for our early years.
This week we have also undertaken the External Site Review, thank you to those that participated in the parent forum, we value your contributions and feedback to the panel. The scoping lines of inquiry were related to learning improvement and effective teaching and learning and we now await the post review report with recommendations moving forward.
We are at present confirming enrolments for 2022 and beyond, if you haven’t yet placed siblings onto the prospective enrolments list, please visit Susan in the office to ensure we can plan effectively for next year. As we start to welcome new enrolments it is also time to consider those that are progressing to high school. I have been very fortunate to see some fantastic applications into special interest programs from our year 6s and 7s. If your child is potentially moving on to another school in 2022, please inform the office as we are meeting to discuss projected student numbers next week.
Enjoy a lovely weekend and celebrate the wonderful people in your life. Or as our year 5-7 student leaders have put on the bulletin board out the front of school...When the world seems small, dream big! I think this provides great inspiration for us all moving forward with the rest of the term.
Kindest Regards, Sybila
