Dear School Community,
On behalf of the Churchlands Primary School Board, I’d like to give you all a brief update on recent news around the school.
Firstly, the Board would like to acknowledge the student survey that has recently been completed. The Board is very pleased with the feedback that has been received, especially regarding students’ overwhelmingly positive perception of the school and teachers. The school will be using the feedback to consolidate and reflect on its strategies and focus points. An overview of the school’s performance and vision can also be found in the recently released 2021 Annual Report. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to have a read of it – a copy of which can be found on the school website.
The school recently took the opportunity to update the Board on the progress of its PBS initiative (Positive Behaviour Support) which is being progressively implemented throughout the school. The PBS aims to teach and encourage targeted whole-school positive expected behaviours. The school is starting to see the benefits of this initiative and the Board congratulates the proactive and explicit approach being taken to behaviour management and student and staff wellbeing.
The Board is currently calling for nominations for two new parent members, due to the terms of Shane Lavagna-Slater and Rebecca Brown coming to an end in Term 3. The Board is looking forward to welcoming new members to continue this important governance role.
Finally, the Board would like to congratulate the school and especially the P&C for the successful completion and opening of the new Adventure Playground. The P&C undertook a huge effort to fundraise and develop this playground and it is fantastic to see it being enjoyed by the whole school community.
On behalf of the Board we wish all families a positive end to Term 2 and a happy and rejuvenating mid-year break.
Churchlands Primary School Board Chair
