Welcome to the last school newsletter for the term.
I would like to acknowledge the hard work performed by staff during the term. Many students have performed extremely well and reached and/or exceeded benchmarks in reading this term. Congratulations on your achievements.
For the past 3 years we have been tracking student achievement in reading for our Year 3 cohort of students. Our site improvement targets are set in line with how many students reach SEA (Standard of Education Achievement). I am extremely proud that as a cohort of students we achieved and exceeded the target set for these students. This is down to a combined effort from all staff and students. Congratulations on your success.
Next week we begin the process of interior painting for classrooms. This will be a scheduled process and will be completed by the end of term 4. We look forward to the end result later in the year.
New LED lighting is also being installed in the school hall. All fluoro lights will be replaced with LED lighting to increase the amount of light for this space. This lighting will support all staff and students and decrease the amount of eye strain for our students. This job is scheduled to begin in the very near future and will be completed in less than a week from the time they begin, cutting down on any learning interruptions.
This week staff participated in some intensive mathematics training whilst SSO’s also participated in learning to support student development. All courses were well received and will make a difference to how we continue to improve as a school.
If you are travelling during the holidays please stay safe.
