Welcome to the first newsletter for Term 3. I trust you enjoyed the holiday break with family and friends.
A number of facilities upgrades are currently being worked on. Our triple portable building is receiving a fresh new paint job and will be finished sometime in the next week or so. We are also in the process of upgrading our student toilet blocks. The toilets will receive new locking mechanisms on all doors, new ceiling tiles, asbestos removal, new tiling and a fresh paint job. This project has commenced and will be finished towards the end of the school term. Another project ready to commence is the Staff Wellbeing area.
I would like to acknowledge Mr Masters’ class and thank them for looking after the recently planted fruit trees. Students are making sure to water and care for the trees on a daily basis.
I would also like to make mention of students in Room 11 who have been highly supportive of the school by emptying the school bins into the pick up skip bin regularly throughout the week. This school community support is highly valued by staff and students. There are many other positive examples of students taking it upon themselves to keep our school clean and looking good. Keep up the great work.
Our School Improvement Plan concentrates on 3 main areas for improvement. Numeracy, Reading and Writing. These areas are at the forefront of how and why we do what we do at Long Street. We are aiming for “Growth for Every Child”. Staff are working tirelessly to ensure this happens.
