Welcome to our final newsletter for the term!
I cannot help but feel excited about the way the year has commenced. We are finally returning to most of the normal routines and ways of operating. There has been a wonderful buzz in the air at all recent school events, especially during our parent interviews over the past two weeks – it has been so rewarding having the opportunity to engage with you (in person) again.
Term 2 Curriculum Grids
We are pleased to share with you can overview of the content being covered in term 2 via our curriculum grids. There are pdf copies included in this newsletter and they can be accessed at any time on our website.
In week 9 we held our P&C AGM. We have a new team of enthusiastic volunteers, excited to lead our parent body this year. The new committee consists of:
President: Julia Baker
Vice Presidents: Yet to be filled
Treasurer: Jen Rainbow
Secretary: Renee Amor
Fundraising Coordinator: Emma Tognolini
Communications: Yet to be filled
I would like to thank our outgoing committee members: Kate Cooper, Geoff Baker and Jua Cilliers. Kate’s leadership of the outgoing team has been exceptional and has seen so many successful events and opportunities for our community.
The new team is passionate and excited about the future of parent engagement in our school. As you can see, there are still a couple of gaps in the new committee and I know they would love to hear from anyone interested in finding out more. Feel free to get in touch via email on firstname.lastname@example.org They would also warmly welcome you to the next meeting on Monday 15 May at 7.00pm.
What a fantastic event for our school community! Thank you to our wonderful team of parents for organising and running the event and to you, the Woolooware Community, for supporting it. $25,000 was raised and this will contribute to the playground upgrades planned for later this year. There are some great photos included in this newsletter.
This week we say farewell to Mrs Tahlia Ferguson as she heads off on maternity leave. We wish the Ferguson family all the very best as they prepare for the arrival of their newest family member. 5/6DF will be excited to welcome Mrs Brooke Raper back to WPS, returning from maternity leave two days per week. From next term 5/6DF will be known as 5/6DR. Of course, the lovely Mrs Deacon will be continuing with the class, ensuring continued excellence in this great classroom!
This term we have been talking a lot about what our community expects in the way of correct school uniform. We ask that parents support us by ensuring students come to school with the correct shoes and socks. Please use the holidays as an opportunity to ensure your child is equipped with the correct uniform pieces.
SHOES: are to be all black with no logos or brands. Boots are not considered correct school shoes
SOCKS: must be visible, are to cover the ankle, be the correct colour and have no branding or logos. Students wearing the checked school uniform wear white socks, students wearing grey school shorts wear grey socks.
