Hello, Giinagay, Hai
Learning to Lead Year 6 Camp
We believe it is the right of every student to develop a sense of self-worth through positive and appropriate leadership opportunities. Student leadership is about involving students in a purposeful and meaningful way to extend and use their individual gifts and talents.
A culture of leadership is encouraged through leadership positions that are structured to allow all students in Year 6 to experience positions of responsibility and to develop the skills needed to carry out these tasks in an effective manner. Leadership emphasise service to others, teamwork, taking initiative and developing responsibility.
Last week Year 6 students had their leadership camp where they were introduced to the concept of leadership and what this means through discussions and activities. The camp follows an established process for leadership education, peer leaders and student action. These activities are aimed at developing an appreciation of what leadership is by recognising the skills, attitudes, behaviours and values they need as leaders.
Thanks to Pak Chris, Pak Karl, Ricky and Helen who shared their expertise and time to making the camp a great success.

Congratulations Wulaaran for being successful in obtaining a School Based Traineeship (SBT) with the Department of Education, hosted by our beautiful Scotts Head Public School. Wulaaran will be studying CHC30213 Certificate III in Education Support with Karben Training during 2021. Wulaaran will be supporting Mrs B and the Year 1/2 class every Monday.
A massive thank you to Vanessa at Club Scotts for their generous donation of $998. This will go towards purchasing a projector and screen which will be available to lend to community members for special events.
A reminder to parents that if you are entering the school gate, you need to go straight to the office to sign in. This is a 3 step sign on process which needs to be done for all visitors including parents dropping off their child to their classroom. Parents and carers who wait at the gate do not need to sign in. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our entire community safe.
Thanks, yaarri yaraang, terima kasih.
