With holidays looming, it's time we reflect on what has been a busy yet highly successful term. We have had excursions to the Art Gallery of South Australia, the Hahndorf Farm Barn, the Adelaide Zoo as well as incursions such as the Music is Fun Band. The Year 3, 5 and 7 learners completed NAPLAN online. Our teachers have been busily writing reports to assess students and their learning. These will be sent out at the end of Week 1 Term 3.
I continue to be proud of the way our learners approach their schooling and show manners. Parents and caregivers, you should be exceptionally proud of your children. We are often complemented on their behaviour when out on excursions.
I've been informed recently that I have won the position of Principal at St Leonards Primary School for the next 5 years. I'm absolutely honoured to have been appointed to this position and look forward to continuing our journey together. To me it’s like my extended family.
At St Leonards Primary School, we continually look at ways that we can improve our communication with parents as well as promote our students learning.
This year, the school has invested in a site license for Seesaw, adding more features for us to use. We have run a number of professional development sessions for teachers and educators in the use of this resource. Please make sure you connect with your child on Seesaw and don't hesitate to contact our teachers if you have any issues.
Once connected to your child on Seesaw you will begin to see samples of learning, videos and hints and tips from the teachers. We encourage you to comment on your child's learning using something that we call T.A.G. You could focus on one question per piece of work.
T- Tell me something that you really liked.
A- Ask a question to better understand the work presented.
G-Give a suggestion of how to make the work even better.
We are all “Learning Together” but really hope this resource promotes student learning.
It is with great sadness that we announce that Lou has resigned from her position as OSHC Director. We have really appreciated the work Lou has done during her time as Director and we wish her all the best in the future.
This week sees the end of one of our long serving cleaners Raj. Raj has now been with us for close to 10 years and today will be his last day. We will really miss Raj but would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his work over the years.
Thursday afternoon there were a number of people parked in non-parking areas and our kiss and drop zones. Council inspectors were present taking photos. Unfortunately, fines will be issued. Please observe the signs as student safety is our priority.
