It has been great to have all of our students at school all week. It might take some time before all of us are ‘school fit’ again but it is great to get back into the routine of school.
I’m sure many of you are looking forward to a long weekend. Our Curriculum Day for staff on Monday will have a focus on assessment and reporting.
School to Summit
Jen Driessen has been working really hard to allow us to have some S2S trips this term. There are a lot of factors that need to be considered. Our plan is that each year level will get to have an S2S excursion and that each of them will be day trips rather than any overnight camps. The Grade 6 School to Summit will be run like last year, where students will complete the whole journey to Mt Buller in three day trips. These will be long days for our Grade 6s, but it will be a great challenge and will still fit within our COVID restrictions.
World Teachers’ Day
Today is World Teachers' Day. I would like to thank our wonderful teachers for all their passion, creativity, care and professionalism. The last two years have turned teaching upside down (as with many professions) but our students have been cared for and have continued their learning. The students and staff are what make Mansfield Primary School such a great place to work. Thank you!
Our Grade 3 – 6 kids have done a fantastic job adjusting to wearing masks in the classroom. It isn’t much fun, but the health advice suggests that it is an important part of keeping everyone safe.
Like always, please get in touch with us with any questions or concerns. Call or email your classroom teacher, call the front office or email me email@example.com.
Have a great weekend.
