Our staff respects the uniqueness and dignity of each child and base teaching/learning programs on sound educational theory and practise. Set amid pockets of natural bushland and native gardens, our modern buildings and facilities offer an attractive and welcoming learning environment for children P-7.
Congratulations to our whole school community on a wonderful effort last week in organizing and participating in the Athletics Carnival. The track carnival is a significant gathering day for our community. Well done to Wattle house (Yellow) on being the eventual trophy winners for the overall competition. Banksia won the boy’s trophy with Wattle winning the girl’s trophy. There were a number outstanding performances on the day.
We also acknowledge and thank our hard working staff who organize the program and all of the equipment and set up of the day. Mrs Prentice and Mr Nucifora must be thanked for their organization of the event. We have an outstanding resource in our school oval and we thank Kev, Ed, Peter and our P&F for supporting the school in its vision to provide a quality playing surface for the children.
We also thank all the parents who supported the tuckshop service on the day, which managed to provide food, and drink to a large crowd of students and supporters. Once again we express our thanks for the day and the many blessings that our community experiences through such fun and enjoyable friendly competition.
NAIDOC WEEK CELEBRATIONS
Later this week all classes will be involved in and contributors to a celebration of our Indigenous culture. NAIDOC week celebrations typically take place on the holidays and we are attempting to acknowledge this important event this week. Our indigenous families along with Paulette Graham’s sons, Conor, Aidan and Bailey, class teachers and students will be leading our community through focused art activities which culminate in a school liturgy. Our indigenous culture gardens in the Prep play area will be a focus for our activities.
Our longer-term intention is to create with wider community support a Reconciliation Action Plan formulated and supported by our indigenous families and school community. In a world where cultural diversity is sometimes a point of difference, it is our responsibility here in Australia to take a stand and recognize our oneness and sameness while respecting the difference, value and rich nature of indigenous cultures.
NEXT P&F Meeting 7.30pm Monday 27th July. Please come along and help make a difference at our little school email@example.com
