Can you believe it's the end of Week 5 and heading into Week 6 of Term 2 already!! I wish someone would slow down time to allow us to catch up on a few things.
As we celebrate Reconciliation Week we draw your attention to our schools vision for reconciliation.
St Leonards Primary School values respect, resilience and readiness in all that we say and do. We embrace, celebrate and acknowledge diversity through collaboration and with shared responsibility. We recognise that reconciliation is an ongoing journey to restore and repair harm to relationships.
We recognise and respect the histories, cultures and contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as a part of our shared national story and identity, with a special focus on our local area. Our school is located on Kaurna land, and we recognise its significance in the coming together of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples in the history of South Australia.
As a community we commit to embed reconciliation actions into everything we say and do. We commit to empower members of our community by developing a deep understanding of our shared place to learn together, share together, and move forward together.
Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) has been developed by school representatives and community members. We are one of the few public primary schools in the state that have developed this plan. Please have a look at our plan at Narragunnawali - St Leonards Primary School
This week will see start of our indigenous mural painted in the Quadrangle. The mural will represent significant areas around Glenelg as well as 100 dots representing the 100 years of our school's existence. Very exciting.
Last Friday we celebrated volunteer week with an assembly run by our student leaders. We are so lucky to have so many parents, caregivers and other family members volunteer to help enhance educational opportunities at St Leonards Primary school.
On the 10th of June and again on the 17th of June we will hold our annual Ladies and Mens nights at the Glenelg Surf Club. Please consider popping along and mingling with some of the fantastic people we have in our community. Tickets are available on QKR!
Safety Around the School
Unfortunately, we have had a number of near misses during pick up and drop off times. One of our biggest areas of concern is on Chalmers St, with reports of cars are stopping in the middle of the road to pick up their children. We have a number of drop-off and pickup zones around the school indicated by signs. We strongly encourage all parents and caregivers to use these areas.
