Welcome back to Scarborough Primary School for the 2019 school year. It has been great to feel the buzz of excitement that has been around the school with staff starting on 31 January and then students at the beginning of this week on 4 February. Our school has grown significantly over the past few years and we now, for the first time in many years, have over 200 students enrolled. To cater for this rise in student numbers, we also have a few new staff members starting with us this year to whom I would like to extend a special welcome. Apart from myself, we are also lucky to have Ms Kasey Spagnolo in our Room 7 Pre-primary class, Mrs Wendy Burr in our Room 4 Year 1/2 class and Mr Josh Dorozenko in our Room 1 Year 3/4 class. These teachers all bring a wealth of knowledge and diverse experiences to our school.
Shed 5 is one of our most popular creative spaces. It was introduced to enable 'loose parts' play for all of our students, particularly during recess and lunch, but also as part of lessons. The Shed is filled with all sorts of goodies to feed the imagination, but regularly needs topping up. That's where you come in; if you are doing a clear out, please consider if you have items that could be used in Shed 5 and bring them along to the front office. Items we are looking for include (but not limited to):
- pots and pans
- plastic pipes
- clean tyres - all sizes
- lengths of fabric
- off-cuts of carpet/fake grass
PLEASE ONLY SEND CLEAN, UNBROKEN ITEMS. PLEASE DO NOT SEND TOYS OR PLAY EQUIPMENT.
