Thank you to our wonderful volunteers Claire Pym and Tha'is Bussenschutt for assisting Bethany and Laren on the excursion - it was an amazing day!
It has been a lovely end to the term with the production of Michael's class play. All the students did an amazing job in learning their lines and presenting a range of information on Ancient Rome. I would like to congratulate them on their enthusiasm and resilience as they adapted their play to account for student absence and they kept the rest of the school thoroughly engaged. I also took the opportunity to look at the building projects of Sen and Hamish today who have beautifully crafted their designs. It was so inspiring to see their committment to their projects and detailed workmanship to create their buildings. I am really looking forward to seeing the remainder of the Year 3/4 class projects next term. The early years students also took the opportunity to go to the Museum and Botanical Gardens this week. They thoroughly enjoyed this wider learning experience and the rocks and minerals were obviously a highlight with many students talking to me about the 'gold' they had seen. I want to thank both Laren and Bethany and the parent volunteers that supported this valuable learning experience.
We have several students that we farewell this term and also some returning students for Term 4. We wish Hamish, Alex, Emily, Grace, James, Sen and Iona all the best in their respective new schools and we welcome Elysia, Marius and Mahali in Term 4. Next term is always a busy one and there are many special events that we are looking forward to including our Year 3-7 Indigenous Focus Camp, Swimming, Aquatics, Photos, Reception Transition and Graduation of our double Year 6 and 7 cohort. There is alot to fit into just 9 weeks! NAPLAN results are also coming home today with some pleasing results, please take the time next term to check in classroom teachers sshould you require more information about your childs progress in line with the standards of educational achievement for year level. Please also inform admin staff as soon as possible if you are not returning in 2022 as we are currently looking at staffing into the coming year. Enjoy your holiday break with your lovely children and we look forward to welcoming them back for an exciting Term 4.
Kind Regards, Sybila
