Welcome to the 2nd newsletter for the term.I am extremely happy at the way a very high portion of the school has settled into the new year. Change is always difficult. Staff have been working extremely hard to establish routines and set clear boundaries for the year ahead. I would also like to acknowledge our amazing SSO’s who continue to influence the learning of all students.
The introduction of Read, Write, Inc. has begun with students in the very early stages of learning how this program supports their literacy development. We are encouraged that this work will improve students personal growth and improve their learning progress.
A number of site improvement projects have finally moved to the tender stage. The COLA (covered outdoor learning area) is currently in the first week of a 3 week tendering process. We are confident that this project will come in on budget and be completed during this year. We also recently won a grant to completely re-mesh the surrounding school fence. The current state is extremely poor and unsafe. This project will be completed this year. Special thanks to Mychelle Franke (Council member) for her support in obtaining this grant.
We are also excited about completing a sun shelter which will be erected over the drink fountain outside the Stem Learning Centre. This will keep the stainless steel fountain out of the direct sunlight. The sun used to heat this fountain to extreme temperatures which could possibly cause injury to students that use this facility.
