The end of term is fast approaching with a great deal of learning taking place and goals achieved. We are in the process of organising our Parent Interview time-tables so we can share some of these highlights with you. Please make sure that you book in an interview time with your child’s teacher so they can discuss your child’s report with you and answer any questions that you may have. If you would like to book a time to meet with any of our NIT – extra curriculum teachers (Science/PE = Mr Yates, Vietnamese/Language = Mrs Danh and The Arts = Mrs Graham), please let the front office know as they will arrange for this to happen.
We want to ensure that there is open communication at all times as we are a partnership and value ‘working together’. If you need assistance with booking, please speak to our lovely front office staff who would be more than happy to help out. More information on bookings will be available soon.
I would also like to acknowledge and congratulate all classes for sharing their learning during Reconciliation Week 27th May to 3rd June. Reconciliation Australia acknowledges and pays respect to the past, present and future Traditional Custodians and Elders of this nation and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
I would like to share a little bit about a valuable piece of new Art Work up provided to us by the department. The original artwork was created by Ngarrindjeri artist and designer Jordan Lovegrove, specifically for the Department for Education in South Australia to represent the Aboriginal Education Strategy 2019-2029.
‘The Journey of Success’ artwork symbolises both the intent of the Aboriginal Education Strategy and steps towards Reconciliation for the department. It represents that the journey of success for a young Aboriginal person is shaped by a solid foundation in learning and development.
Our educators have the highest expectations for Aboriginal children and young people and it’s our purpose to support them to reach their full potential through a culturally responsive approach to teaching and learning.
The artwork will be displayed in our front office, so please feel free to come in and have a look. We are waiting on having some other artwork completed around our school which is very exciting. We will keep you posted.
Lastly, I would like to thank all our families for taking extra precaution during drop off and pick up times, by using the 3 main entrances and not walking through or parking in the staff carparks. As mentioned previously, our students’ safety is paramount.
As a school, we are always looking at ways in which we can further improve, and welcome any ideas or feedback. Thuy and I are on duty in the mornings so feel free to come and have a chat with us.
Learning Together, Learning For Our Future.
