Welcome to the last newsletter for Term 3. I would like to acknowledge the hard work from teaching and support staff during a very busy but rewarding term. Many students have improved in both literacy and numeracy with noticeable improvement occurring during Read, Write, Inc lessons. This program is significantly making improvements in student reading and word identification. Keep up the great work.
I would also like to acknowledge Mr Yeates and Leroy (ACEO) for their coaching of the Whyalla SAPSASA football team. The team played well and worked as a team during all games.
This term we made the decision to postpone Sports Day and other events to increase the safety of our staff and students during COVID—19 restrictions. We are pleased to announce that we have rescheduled sports day to occur in week 3 of term 4, Thursday 29th October. This day will be heavily controlled with social distancing high on the radar. I ask that you follow all social distancing expectations if you choose to attend this event. COVID Marshalls will be present on the day ensuring we abide by the rules. I will publish the expectations closer to the event and ask that we make this day enjoyable and safe by following all expectations.
The installation of the Covered Outdoor Learning Area is set for Monday 28th September during the first week of school holidays. This is extremely exciting and will value add to the programs we can offer our students.
The exterior fence project is set to begin at the end of this week. A local contractor won the project and has been busily organising materials. The job is expected to take 2 weeks.
I would like to wish everyone a very safe and happy holidays. Please stay safe.
