Principal’s News 22 October 2021

Dear Parents and Carers

I would like to start by thanking everyone for such a smooth start to the term. The students have all returned ready and eager to learn and I have been impressed with how hard so many of them are working to achieve their learning goals. We are focussing extra effort into our literacy and numeracy learning. I have been around to classes talking to students about the importance of establishing good reading habits and I encourage you all to ensure that your children are reading every night. You may like to share the following Dr Seuss quote with your children:

Year 5 Assembly

Room 8 treated us to an amazing assembly this morning. They gave us 10 inspirational lessons to live by that align perfectly with our Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) program and concluded with a lovely song that featured some very talented students singing solos. The students made their parents and their teachers very proud with their amazing abilities when speaking in front of the school. They were truly awesome!

Security Around School

We had a theft from one of our classrooms last week. Cash and other valuable items were stolen. I have heard from other Principals in the area that a number of their schools have been targeted in the last two weeks. In particular, there have been a number of instances where parents have left their bags in the car, run in to pick up their children only to return to a smashed car window and their bag stolen. Please be vigilant and avoid leaving valuables in your car during pick up or drop off time. Please report any incidences to Police on 131 444

Pick Up / Set Down

Thank you to those parents and carers who continue to observe the processes in the Pick Up / Set Down Area. When parents and carers follow the processes the area flows well. Unfortunately, we had two cars parked and unattended in the area this afternoon, which prevented the smooth flow of pick up. When using the area can you please pick up and set down as close to the front of the area as possible. Thank you

Enjoy your weekend
