Wow - What a fortnight!! While the weather's certainly been up and down, it's been all hands on deck here, learning and enjoying all that our little school has on offer. We've had our first Echidna Council Meeting, Bike Ed classes, SWPBS awards, our Info Night. We welcomed Ryan into the 2/3 classroom and our new P/1 teacher, Jen Birch, to the team and congratulated our teacher Nat on her special news - a baby due in August!
We've also had lots of parent volunteers in - gardening, sorting through all of our library books, reading in classrooms and more. If you'd like to join us, just see your teacher!
Throughout the last week we've 'unveiled' our new retaining walls and finally been able to access our paths again. Chan and the STEM trolley being most relieved we think! You may have also heard that we've had a lot more trades in this week. We've got a whole lot of security upgrades going on over the next few months. Michelle will be getting an office upgarde as well as the school getting new doors, locks, PA and more!
The classes are well and truly in the thick of Term 1 learning - practising and developing new skills through personal goals and continuing to strengthen their classroom bonds. All classes are now also having weekly Respectful Relationships lessons. If you get questions at home about getting along, safety and understanding and accepting ourselves and others, this might be why! If you'd like to know more about the lessons they can be found online here.
You'll see below that we've put the call out for new school council members. This is an invaluable role within the school and we look forward to welcoming passionate parents who want to help us make the best school for our community.
Lastly, just a reminder that fees, including music fees, are now overdue. If you have not made a payment or scheduled a plan, please come in and see Michelle early next week.
