Term 4 is upon us and our whole school focus of COMMUNITY is underway. This focus allows us to consider what it means to be part of a community. We understand that community means that just living near each other, as in a suburban neighborhood, doesn't mean you're in a community. Community is tangible, cohesive and brings people together in ways that allows them to do things they couldn't have done in isolation. At school we work together to build learning communities, for support and collaboration with our learning, we solve social problems through community circles, and we strive to make long lasting connections for students to understand the importance of giving back. We are fortunate to be in a suburb that already harnesses the power of community through the Rec Park group, Cinemallunga, CFS, football, netball, soccer, basketball, guides, table tennis club, tennis club and many more. I wonder how many ways your family connects to this or your local community?
To connect to our Willunga Community, Sue Camac will once again be running our Living Library in term 4 where we invite members of the local community in to talk to the students about their role. This is a highlight of our term 4 calendar.
We also look forward to seeing you at our term 4 Community Celebration 'Twilight Concert' in week 7.
