Dear parents and carers,
Welcome back to term three. I hope you managed to get some down time in with your family over the break. We are excited to have our students back in the school and look forward to a productive and engaging term.
Report Format Feedback
Having had a chance to look at the new reporting format I invite you to provide us some feedback about this to support us to improve. Please click the link below to fill out a quick survey. We have reviewed the new reporting format with our staff and would like to incorporate the views of our parents and carers in the semester two reports.
Pupil Free Day Update
On Monday the staff spent time analysing the recent review report and reflecting on the progress the school has made in the last three years as well as analysing the key finding from the recent school strategic review. The three strategic goals that were developed through the review process are below.
1. To Improving Literacy and Numeracy Outcomes
2. To Improve Student Engagement in Learning
3. To Student Voice and Agency in Learning
I am currently planning opportunities for the students to engage in a similar process to support the development of our new vision for the school over the next four years. I will also be inviting you to contribute your thoughts to shape this process.
My intention is to create an aspirational and inspiring goal for us to work toward will help us make the best school possible for our students and your children.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Learning Expo
On Friday 23 July we are inviting you to come and view the learning that our students have undertaken in term two. Students will be spread across the entire school site, including Middle Gully. Our classrooms will be open for you to visit from 2:30pm -3:50pm on Friday 23 July. This will be in place of the school assembly on this day.
As with all of the parent events we have attempted to plan in the last 18 months, this is all subject to the health restrictions on the day. As I write this, we can hold school events with external guests.
We are also planning to hold the Winter Solstice Event on Friday 23rd of July between 5:30pm and 7:30pm. We will be holding a short outdoor dance on the main school grandstand before the lantern parade to the bon fire area in Middle Gully.
In regard to the lanterns, we are still in need of additional 1.5 litre plastic bottles to finish the lanterns. The donation drop spot is in the front office of the school in the large tubs.
This is another event that we are keenly watching the COVID restrictions, and we will keep you updated.
