Dear Parent / Carer,
Thank you for helping our students to navigate another two weeks of school as we all head enthusiastically towards a well deserved holiday break from learning.
School Leadership Candidates 2022
It has been wonderful to watch the candidates for the 2022 leadership team deliver their campaign speeches. Unfortunately we have been unable to present these speeches in a face to face environment, but I am sure that you will agree with me, that what we have seen from our candidates has been very impressive. We encourage you all to watch the video clip in this newsletter and speak to your children about who they feel would make great student leaders. On Monday in class-time, the students will watch the video once again and vote for their preferred candidates. Once the votes are counted the successful candidates will then be able to telephone their families to inform them. We will then begin the transition to new student leaders.
Outdoor learning space
Over the past few weeks, students, staff and our extended school community have been physically working on preparing our outdoor learning space as part of the Stronger communities grant. This week we were very fortunate to have Aunty May and Julie Street-Smith come on school grounds and consult with us about our learning space. They gave some wonderful and constructive feedback to our Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander students along with our Year 5 student leaders. These suggestions will be incorporated into the design of this outdoor learning space and planning for future developments will continue. Thank you Aunty May and Julie for your valued opinions.
In the creation of our outdoor learning space, it is very important to us here at Jamberoo that our current students have a sense of ownership of the space. One way we are doing that is by creating a dry river bed. The dry river bed is made up of flat river stones that each student has painted with "Their story". This process is proving to be a very valuable one and I would like to thank Mrs Martin for all her extra time in ensuring that each child has created their own story rock. Please see photos in this issue.
This week our very first dressed rehearsal was held for the 2021 Production "Calling All Angels". This was carried out to help draw together all the hard work that the students and teachers have been doing over the past six months. It was a wonderful to see the entire play start to come together. Students will continue to rehearse in groups before the filming of the play on Wednesday 1 December. Thank you to Mrs Behl-Shanks, Mrs Martin and Miss Alpen for all your hard work with the school production.
Thank you for your support in maintaining a focus on learning and well being here at Jamberoo Public School
Ms Greta Lewis
