School Advisory Council and P&F Annual Community Meeting
2024 School Planning
Planning is under way for the 2024 school year, with consideration being given to the structure of the classrooms and staffing in the school. Whilst there is plenty of time for this to be formalised, it is important that this is organised effectively so that all of the students can make an easy transition and have a successful start to the upcoming school year.
A letter has been sent today, via SEQTA, inviting parents to complete a survey, if required, should they have any extenuating concerns or information unknown to the school regarding the placement of their child in classrooms for 2024. Please take the time to read this correspondence, at your earliest convenience.
If you know your family are moving next year, could you please advise the office as soon as possible (if you have not already done so) to aid with planning for classes for next year. Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated.
2024 Student Leaders
Over the past few weeks some of our students in Year 5 have been campaigning to become part of the Student Leadership Team in 2024. Next Monday, students nominating for Head Girl and Head Boy will be presenting speeches to all students in Years 3 to 6 as part of the election process. The speeches will take place in the hall, beginning at 8:50am this Monday, 20 November. We wish all of these students presenting a speech the very best of luck. The campaign posters are now posted on the windows of the hall for all members of the school community to see.
Following the speeches, all students in Years 3 to 6 will go through the voting process, where they get to nominate who they would like to see as Head Girl and Head Boy, Student Councillors and House Captains for 2024. The successful students will be announced at the upcoming Christmas concert.
Year 6 Camp
Last Monday 13 November, the school held a ‘Remembrance Day’ ceremony in the Steve Dowie Hall. We thank the students for their reverence during this ceremony as they prayed and showed their respects for those who have served and those fallen in defence of our nation. Thank you also goes to Mr Hazebroek for organising this ‘Remembrance Day’ ceremony.
Preparations have continued for this year’s Christmas concert, being held on Wednesday 29 November, beginning at 5:30pm. Classes have started practicing their concert items during the week and are looking forward to celebrating this wonderful event in the school calendar.
The current behaviour focus is ‘waiting for supervision before playing during breaks’. What this means for students is that they need to wait for the allocated staff member to arrive on their duty site before students begin playing.
Parents are encouraged to visit the school’s term planner on a regular basis to ensure you are informed about upcoming events during the year. The term planner can be accessed by clicking on the following link: School Events Calendar
