Welcome to the last newsletter for Term 3. It has been a very busy term with many highlights to celebrate.
Personal growth for students has been extremely rewarding during the term. Many students have jumped reading levels and improved their sight word count. Growth continues to occur for students in Running Records and Probe comprehension results. Well done to both staff and students for this hard work.
I would also like to acknowledge the Whyalla Show display which was created by Sheri. It was outstanding to see the incredible work our students are producing. There were a number of students who received show awards for the work they had produced. Well done and congratulations. Thank you to Mrs Edwards for also supporting this years show effort.
This year’s NAPLAN results have been delivered to school. As a staff we will pull apart the results and celebrate the positive improvements and make plans to implement change to continue to support the social, emotional and learning needs of our children.
Well done to Mrs Whyte and Shirley for organising this years photo day. It is a huge effort to ensure that all photos are taken on time. Well done to our students for their cooperation on the day. We will inform you when the photos arrive at school.
I would like to wish Mr Yeates all the very best as he takes long service leave in Term 4 and travels with his family. I am currently in the process of finding a replacement for him.
