Dear Parents and Carers,
Term 1 is fast drawing to a close and lots of things have happened in the last 3 weeks. Class teachers are currently very busy meeting with parents and formulating Personalised Learning Plans for each student. If you haven’t already booked in an appointment with your child’s teacher, I would encourage you to do so. As parents/carers you are able to provide valuable insight into the likes and dislikes of your child and assist in identifying their learning goals that are meaningful for them across settings.
Thank you to everyone for making Harmony Day such a success. It was great seeing such a positive response from parents and carers on the day. I would especially like to thank all of the George Bass staff who worked hard to create learning activities that were shared across classrooms throughout the day.
Harmony Day also provided an opportunity for the school to have the grand opening of its new and ground-breaking Immersion Room. I know the staff have worked tirelessly to get this room up and running and that there has also been strong support from the school community.
In order to complete this project in such a short period of time it has taken a great school culture of support and strong links with the community. It has taken everybody’s combined effort to provide such wonderful learning opportunities for George Bass students. On behalf of the students at George Bass School, thank you to everyone for your valuable contribution.
Coming up in week 10, the school is hosting a movie night for the George Bass School community. You and your family are invited to attend. See the flyer in this newsletter for costs. Please note that this is a family event and children are to be supervised by parents at all times.
Finally, for those of you who drop off your children, you may have noticed that the grass is getting a little long. Tony, our hard working General Assistant hasn’t forgotten to mow the lawn. Our mower is currently getting repaired and Tony is eager to have the grounds mowed as soon as possible.
Until next time.
