Welcome back to term 2! I hope you were all able to enjoy a relaxing Easter break and it has been super to catch up with some of you on the playground. Please don’t forget to pop onto the playground and into the classrooms to say hello to the teachers.
Term 2 has started with pace and learning programs are in full flow already!
Camp Connect was a roaring success! I would like to thank the staff who dedicated their time to supporting the children during this camp – I was proud of the way the children represented Parkhill over the course of the few days away.
Y5/6 interschool sports started again today with our children going off to visit Holy Family School in Mount Waverley this morning. This is always super fun for the children involved.
I would like to extend a warm welcome to Jess who has replaced Stephanie in the garden. We heard during the holidays that Stephanie was moving interstate and wouldn’t be back to join us. Jess started her session yesterday!
I would like to share with you some very exciting personal news. I am having a baby! Baby is due in October. I understand that for some of you this will raise questions around school leadership and plans for the coming year. I am currently working closely with the DET to ensure my cover is well organised and transition for the period is smooth. Our main concern is the focus on consistency and continuity for the children and community. If you have any concerns or would like to talk through anything that is on your mind please do contact me directly either by email or phone - firstname.lastname@example.org or 0413440871.
Throughout the school children have been tuning in to their learning, asking questions and planning their finding out. Below is the detail of the units of work for the first part of the term.
