Welcome to the week 6 newsletter.
I have been delivered some outstanding achievement data in the area of reading improvement. Across the board (in all year levels) a high percentage of students have made growth and progress from their last recorded reading test result. Many students far exceeded their last result which is testament to the hard work being performed by staff during the Read, Write, Inc learning sessions. The engagement levels for many students has also been a very pleasing outcome of this program. This learning is also moving into other curriculum areas as the students are able to enter the curriculum at a higher level. Keep up the great work.
Contractors have currently left the site as stage 1 and 2 of the COLA project has been completed. The new drainage system, drain covers, sub surface plumbing, new concrete paths, safety hand rails and disability ramp are now complete. I have a meeting in week 6 which will guide the installation of the actual COLA. I envisage this project being completed and delivered early in term 4. No heavy lifting will occur during school days.
Another significant faciltiies project will commence very soon. The exterior fence will be completely torn down and re installed with black mesh. The tender for this project ended last Friday. Once a contractor has been awarded the project, work will begin soon thereafter. Once again thanks to Mychelle Franke, Governing Council member, for her work in this project.
We are currently identifying what events we can run safely for the remainder of the year due to COVID restrictions. Our 2 big events still programmed are the Christmas Concert and Awards Night. I will inform you of future decisions based on safe practice.
