Our students have adjusted so well to being back at school this year. To support their continued positive behaviour, we teach regular explicit lessons about positive behaviour and acknowledge students behaviour through the presentation of 'Echidna Cards'. We have some children who are very close to achieveing their first milestone of 25 cards and we look forward to celebrating them very soon!
New School Council
There are 4 openings on our new school council. We're looking for open minded, active parents who would like to join us. Our School Council has 8 meetings a year (2 per Term) and membership is for 2 years. We will have nomination forms available from Monday for interested parents to complete. Once we have our membership finalised, our first meeting will be on Monday March 22nd at 4pm.
As you're aware, small schools just cannot function without volunteers. We are so thankful for the parents and community members that offer their time up to support us. Thank you to each one of you! A huge thank you to Laura Wells who has put so many hour into our library upgrade!
Playgroup is back on and one of our lovely staff has rejoined us!
Another fantastic volunteer of note is Felicity, who has spent many hours recently, preparing our playgroup room and running weekly sessions for the parents and young members of our community! Thank you! If you'd like to join in with playgroup, it runs on Thursdays from 9:30 - 11:30.
We are looking forward to seeing our Grade 6 students present their School Captain speeches to the school tomorrow. We have three captain positions; School Captain, Sports Captain and Student Voice Captain. They work together closely with students and teachers in a broad range of areas. All students will vote tomorrow and our 2021 Captains will be presented at a special assembly next Wednesday at 9am.
As you're aware, senior bands and lessons have not started yet as Kyle is unavailable but it's looking very likely that we've found a great person to fill his spot while he's gone. Keep an ear to the ground for more news soon!
After some community consultation, we have decided to keep the quick drop off area in place. When you drop your child off in the morning, please leave the left hand side of the drive free for parents who are pulling over breifly and allowing their children to walk into school. For those wanting to park and take your time or stop for a chat, we would love to have you do so, just try and keep that space free please.
Well done and thank you!
Lastly, I just wanted to say a big thank you for your fantastically positive reaction to the quick lockdown over the past week. We are very fortunate to have such an understanding and open community. I hope it didn't put your lives in too much of a spin. We're pretty well back to normal here. Visitors are still welcome but must wear masks when we cannot social distance and when inside.
