After a few weeks of school camps, all students are back on site and everyone has settled back well into their normal learning routines. Once again, a big thank you to everyone who gave up their personal time to support our students and to provide them with opportunities that transcend the classroom. 

Building movementThis weekend the two portable classrooms at the end of the basketball court (Grade One classroom and Music Room) will be removed off-site. Students from these rooms will be temporarily housed in our current STEM Room and in the BER. We are all really looking forward to moving into the new buildings at the start of next term. We will also need to change the entrance and exit points to the school from next term, and specific details will be sent out to everyone well in advance. Thank you all for your ongoing patience and understanding during the upgrades.  

Vegetation – We have been fortunate to save seven trees from behind the old Grade One classroom and they will be transplanted to the Edible Garden. We are very committed to revegetating our campus and planting more trees to compensate for any losses during the building program. The School Council is very supportive of the school maintaining its unique environment, and capitalising on our semi-rural location. 

School Values - Earlier this year a small group of Gr 5’s and 6’s commenced working together with the goal of ‘upcycling’ an old surfboard to display at our school. Eachyn, Hunter, Archer and Ox worked incredibly well together in coming up with a great design representing our school values! We had a lot of fun in the process, and very excited to share the end product. Thanks you for your creative work and team spirit boys!   

Communication avenuesPlease remember that the ‘first port of call’ with any concerns you might have, is with your child’s class teacher or Year Level Coordinator. If this need to be escalated in any way, then contact one of the Principal Class Officers. We always welcome clear and open communication and will happily meet with parents if they would like to discuss any issues or celebrate any successes. 

Have a great weekend and make the most of the wonderful environment in which we live. You’ve just got to look at the evening news on telly to realise how good we’ve got it. Let’s all try to further develop a deep sense of appreciation and perspective in our children, so that they too may continue to enjoy, look after and love the great life we live on the Surfcoast.
