Dear Parents and Carers
Presentation Day Assembly
Thank you to all of our families who were able to attend our Presentation Day assembly on Wednesday.
The growth and success of our students was definitely on display and they all certainly know how to entertain, the performances were excellent!!!
A special mention to our very special visitors from Francis Greenway, who presented three Aboriginal dances, and thank you to Holly for explaining the cultural significance of each dance. The students had a lovely morning with the students making badges, weaving, painting and connecting.
I will post photos onto our Facebook page shortly.
Congratulations to every single one of the students for their achievements in 2022!
Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL)
Thank you to all the community, students and staff who contributed to surveys on establishing school values for our PBL program. I have included in the newsletter a wordcloud with all of the values contributed, the larger the word the more times it was listed in the survey.
Our three new core values are:
Staff will now establish the expectations that sit under these core values and create lessons for our students to explicitly teach to the students in 2023. We will then list how these expectations can be demonstrated by students in all areas of the school e.g. classroom, playground, library, office.
The school is still looking for a member of our school community to join our PBL team as a community representative. If you would like to join our team speak to a staff member or the office, we will meet approximately twice a term.

Just a reminder that the school uses the Skoolbag app to communicate with our whole school community:
- please download the app and add our school as this is the dominant form of communication, particularly if there needs to be last minute changes and/or reminders. Please see the Office if you need support in accessing the app. If you are not receiving our notifications you may need to re-log into the app.
Have a wonderful and safe holiday! We will see you all again next year!
