As we approach the end of Term 2, it is hard to believe that the children have only been back to full-time face-to-face teaching for 4 weeks. Lots has happened in the past few months and our new “normal” continues to evolve week by week. One area, however, that I feel very confident about is the emphasis on all Key Learning Areas (KLAs). Working across all six KLAs is strongly back on the agenda at our school. Our teachers have been re-assessing all their students once they returned, and our meetings have a very strong emphasis on the learning and well-being of all our students. Our Specialist Teachers are working collaboratively with the class teachers to ensure that gaps in the students’ learning are being addressed.
The Semester 1 reports will be a very different report format from what we are used to. However, they will reflect our students’ on-line learning from home period. There will be a comment on English, Mathematics and a general comment. Even though we will not be conducting face-to-face parent/teacher interviews this semester, parents and carers are more than welcome to contact the school to arrange a telephone or on-line discussion with their child’s teacher. Reports will be issued to the students to take home on Wednesday, 1st July. If you prefer to have your child’s report sent to your home address, please contact the office as soon as possible to have this arranged.
As I am sure you are aware, the P&C Committee is a group of wonderful parent and community volunteers, working in collaboration with the school. Recently, two of their highly valued volunteers made the difficult decision to pass their reigns on to someone else, as they embark on new commitments. Thank you to Chiara Montosi and Leah Wicks for their many hours of hard work. Your service and commitment to the school are highly appreciated by the whole school community. Good luck with your new endeavours!
As a result, the P&C are desperately seeking a canteen and a uniform shop co-ordinator. If you are able to assist in any way, please contact one of the P&C members below:
· Uniform Shop - Leah Wicks on 0423 002 660
· Canteen - Chiara Montosi on 0406 355 792
· President - Malcolm Buchan (Text is best) on 0425 231 082
