Term 4 has started really well for students and staff. I am observing students actively engaging in learning and having fun with their friends during break times. Can you please ensure that your child has an appropriate hat to wear whilst participating in activities outdoors.
As announced last week, staff are beginning the process of preparing their students for the Christmas concert. A reminder, this event is a student only event, keeping in line with COVID expectations. We are working hard to ensure we are able to share your child's performance with you in some capacity. We are currently investigating the best way to achieve this. I will keep you informed as to how you can view your child’s performance.
Last week we completed the replanting of established trees. I originally had the large gum trees removed due to them being diseased and at risk of falling. We have selected Tuckeroo trees to replace the gumtrees. Tuckeroos are evergreen, height controlled, grow rapidly and are suitable to the climate in Whyalla. I encourage you to drive around the school and look at the progress of these trees.
Staff are busily beginning the process of writing school reports. They will be handed to students during the last week of school.
A number of facilities projects are underway and/or completed. I will inform the community when the painting schedule is complete.
