Dear Parents and Carers,
Library Learning Hub – Progress
We are excited to let you know that the building phase of the new library learning hub is progressing well. We have the main framing starting to take shape and we are getting a feel for how the room will appear once it is finished. I will continue to keep you up to date with the progress of this exciting project and we will have an opening ceremony later this year.
Reconciliation Week – Be brave, make change
We are acknowledging reconciliation week this week in classes by sharing video and content about the stolen generation, Eddie Mabo and reconciliation with our students. Please keep the conversation going at home with you children by watching a relevant video together and having a conversation over dinner. While we have a relatively low percentage of students and families in our school who are Aboriginal. It is incumbent on us all to carry forward the conversation of reconciliation. “Be Brave. Make Change.” is a challenge to all Australians— individuals, families, communities, organisations and government—to Be Brave and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can Make Change for the benefit of all Australians.
