As I am sure you are aware, the last week has been a real challenge with many students, staff and families unwell or isolating. This has been a real challenge for our leadership team, our staff and of course those families who have been affected. Thank you to everyone for their extra efforts over the last week or two. Mr Bush, our king of timetables and organisation, needs a special mention. He has been solving puzzles every day to make sure our school can manage.
We are continuing to wear masks, ask families to test their children, sanitise, use our air purifiers and minimise mixing of cohorts. Hopefully we will have a normal Term 2, if anyone can remember what that looks like 😊.
IGA Community Rewards
Thank you to all of our families who have nominated Mansfield Primary School to receive community rewards when you shop at Marks’ IGA. Stephen Marks presented me with a cheque for more than $2300 last week. This money will go towards purchasing decodable readers to add to our classroom libraries.
If you are an IGA customer and would like to nominate MPS to receive your community rewards, please contact the office and we can help you to do that.
The Mansfield Primary School council works with the school to directly influence the quality of education that the school provides for its students. Welcome to Ben Weatherhead and James Clelland who will join our school council for 2022. A huge thank you to Sophie Yencken, Gina Elliott and Jacinta Elliott who are finishing their 2 year term.
I would like to thank all our staff, students and families for their energy this term. Only one week to go! I think we all deserve a break. Have a safe and restful holiday. I look forward to seeing you all next term.
