Winter has arrived at last with a wintry blast over the past few days. This reminds us to make sure that we rug up and keeping children them nice and warm.
SeeSaw is a platform for learning which links families with their child's teacher. It allows students to share work directly with their parents and caregivers. On Wednesday 23 June, we will be running a session helping people connect to the App. We will send out further information as the date approaches.
Last week saw the final days of our reconciliation celebrations for 2021. You may have noticed our new mural on the quadrangle wall by artist Tjimari Sanderson-Milera.
We are really excited about our new piece of art, recognising the First Nations people of the area.
We also held a special assembly, run by our Ambassadors, before creating an outline of the Aboriginal flag on the oval.
From time to time, we experience confrontations and issues at our school. St Leonards prides itself on listening to our students and offering them well-being support if they need. Some of our students are still learning how to cooperate and get along with each other. This can be challenging for them at times. If you feel you need to reach out, please contact your child's teacher as the first port of call or Heid Bevan, our Wellbeing Leader.
Unfortunately, due to an external Telstra issue, our report writing software has been unavailable for the past two weeks. This thankfully has now been resolved. As a result, we will now be sending out reports at the end of Week 1, Term 3.
Have you got your tickets?
Last night we held our annual Ladies night and on the 17th of June we will have our annual Mens night at the Glenelg surf club. Please consider popping along and mingling with some of the fantastic people we have in our community. Tickets available on QKR
Safety around the school
We have several drop-off and pickup zones around the school indicated by signs. We strongly encourage all parents and caregivers to use these areas. These are not parking areas and can attract a fine from the council if inspectors do spot checks.
