I hope you are all taking good care of yourselves.
Week 6 here we come!
We have had an eventful few weeks with all the COVID-19 mandates however while the Executive and staff continue to modify and adapt with the changes, children have been enjoying school life! It is ‘business as usual’ with teachers doing an amazing job providing a normal learning environment for the students.
We have had a number of COVID close contacts however they have not directly impacted the school. Please remember
- If you or your children have been identified as a close contact, please SMS Kim Fraser, Principal on 0400 994 926 as soon as possible.
- If you or your children have a PCR COVID positive result please SMS Kim Fraser on 0400 994 926 immediately and send through the text showing a positive result from the Health Department.
This information greatly assists the school in implementing our COVID safety plan and supports children with any remote learning requirements.
Children in years 3 – 6 have taken to the wearing of masks with surprising ease. Teachers have developed well thought out plans ensuring children have more outdoors learning/activities, extra crunch and sip breaks and supporting their mental wellbeing. Please continue to support your child in understanding the health and hygiene practices of wearing masks.
The National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence is on Friday 18 March. The theme for 2022 is Kindness Culture which links with one of our PBS focus actions areas this term with a focus on speaking with Kindness. We take an active approach to ensure that our students are provided with skills to be able to respond to bullying in a proactive, resilient way. It is important that these skills are openly discussed at home, defining acceptable and non-acceptable behaviours and how to deal with situations. Research is very clear in showing that having the school and families collectively engaged in discussions on bullying will have a positive impact on our children with regards to bullying. The Federal Government initiative of Bullying No Way! is a great website for parents if you wish to gain more information on this. https://bullyingnoway.gov.au/
Enjoy the long weekend!
