Since my last Bulletin I have had the privilege of spending time in many classrooms to see the students learning many things. I am continually impressed by their willingness to learn and improve. Highlights have been Maddy and Isaiah’s improvement in spelling, Freddie’s creativity and Map making skills ( See attachment below) and Abbey’s descriptive writing.Our staff also continue to thrive as a group and their commitment to our school community continues to make me proud. They always work well together to improve. A recent standout being the Numeracy Team who have been developing our Mathematics model, to ensure a consistent evidence based approach to teaching and learning in mathematics is delivered at our school. I look forward to this being launched in the near future.

There will be a 2 year period where students will be able to out grow or out wear their uniform with 2022 being the year we would like all students to be in our new uniform.
I would like to express my gratitude to the School Council and their commitment to our school. When we meet we discuss many matters and the forward thinking and advice from School Council is always valuable and appreciated.
During this month the DET has been able to complete soil remediation works to ensure our site has no remnants of Asbestos, caused by unauthorised dumping of soil at the rear of the school. 70 tonnes of soil were removed. The School Councillors were instrumental in negotiating this successful outcome at no expense to the school.
At the Meeting held on Wednesday, Councilors also discussed the upcoming School Review which will be completed by the end of November. The review report will be made public when received and we look forward to developing our 4 Year Strategic Plan from the recommendations.
Please remember to check our events on the Website and Compass Calendar.
