We have had a busy last couple of weeks, with students and teachers settling into their classroom routines focusing on targeted and intentional learning. Arriving to school on time enables students to be well prepared for the day's learning.
As a school, we pride ourselves on having high expectations whereby EVERY student gets the 'good teacher'. Quality teaching and learning is at the core of what we do. We strive for excellence, focusing on improvement and continual growth across all areas of literacy and mathematics.
Students in every class have been busy setting their reading and personal goals. Teachers continue to be intentional with their planning and programming to ensure EVERY child is successful, yet challenged and engaged with their learning.
We continue to refine and strengthen our 'reading and literacy' work, to maximize growth and achievement. This is not possible, without getting to know our students on all levels (social, emotional, academic) - 'the whole child'.
Building positive relationships with students and families is also something I am strong about. We welcome and are open to feedback, as feedback enables us to continue to improve and further strengthen what we do.
I would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank our community for all your ongoing support. Whether it being concreting, tinting windows, providing seedlings or fruit and veg - we thank you! We have a wealth of expertise and breadth of skills among our families who are always willing to lend a helping hand. This help, enables more funds to go towards student learning. We are forever grateful for the strong partnership we have with our community and want to continue to build upon and strengthen this.
I feel privileged to be part of such a wonderful community and will continue to work hard to ensure that we provide a high quality education for all.
