Dear Parents and Carers,
We’ve made it through a first week that was typical of a cold Macedon winter. Rain, wind and icy cold mornings. In saying that there has been some terrific learning happening in the classrooms. Keep up the great work everybody.
Principal’s Network Meeting
On Monday we hosted the Macedon Ranges Principal’s Network Meeting in the JCB. It was a lovely opportunity to showcase our school to Principals in the area. They were blown away with our amazing audio visual equipment. I would like to thank Ginny Tulloch (the scone master) who gave up her time to bake delicious scones for morning tea. Hopefully in the future we will be able to host more of these meetings.
Yesterday you will have received an email that strongly recommended that staff and students (over 8 years of age) wear masks in indoor settings. Wearing masks is a simple step we can all take this winter to reduce the number of COVID-19 and influenza cases and ensure our school is safe as possible. Further details are below.
Library Learning Hub
Works on the Library Learning Hub are going along nicely. Yesterday I met with the architect and builders, and it is anticipated the space will be complete before the end of the term. Painting is underway, as is fitting out the electrical works and carpet is expected to be laid next week. It will be an amazing learning space for our students once operational.
The Macedon Village Farmers’ Market will be setting up on the school basketball courts on Saturday 30th July between 8am and 1pm. Drop in, grab a coffee and support our local farmers and producers. Proceeds from the stall site fees go directly to the school to support school improvements and student programs.
Till next week
Karren Baker (Acting Principal)
