As many of you may know, the current state of our school oval is not looking good. There are a number of reasons for this and fortunately these reasons will be rectified in the near future. At this point in time I am working closely with facilities managers to develop a plan of installing extra water pipes, pop up sprinklers and a new control panel. This will allow for complete watering to occur to all areas of the oval surface. Once Governing Council have approved the upgrades this project will be set in motion.
We will also be looking to internally paint our classrooms which are well overdue for an upgrade. Again, this process will be moved through the correct channels for approval. A schedule will be sent out as soon as we have the go ahead for this project.
Staff have been vigilant in addressing this year’s Site Improvement Plan goals. Reading is our number 1 goal with writing being our 2nd focus. Other areas of the curriculum are being addressed but coaching and mentoring and rigorous data analysis is occurring in both our main goals. Numeracy improvement also sits high on our learning improvement agenda for 2021. Staff are currently engaged in professional meetings to ensure the needs of our students are being catered for.
While Covid still weighs heavily on everyone's lifestyle, we as a Department remain vigilant in keeping our students, staff and families as safe as we possibly can. Please ensure you do not enter foyers or classrooms and continue to practice social distancing expectations. It is because of these strategies that we continue to not have any cases in our school. Please keep up the great work. Please sign in using the QR process at all times.
Have a wonderful long weekend.
