Another busy term has come and gone. I think that it is important to stop occasionally and reflect on what we have achieved. Our Positive Education program with Tom Brunzell has been embedded into our classroom curriculum program. There would be many schools around who envy the progress we have made in this area and the positive impact it’s making in the lives of many of the students. Reading continues to be a focus across the school and our students have improved greatly in this area. Our intervention reading program now stretches up to Year 5. Our Running Club, also proves to be great venue for both our sporting and non-sporting students. Mr Davey and staff are doing a great job developing a love of fitness and great health with these students. Also, we have utilised the expertise of the Sports Academy next door to organise high quality sports programs for our students. Year 6 students participated in the local volleyball tournament and greatly improved their skills while our Year 5’s have been working on a fortnightly basis with their VCAL students. The Peer Mediators have had a positive impact on students in the yard. The tone and feel in classrooms and the yard is very positive indeed.
Although school is in recess for the next two weeks, hopefully, you can encourage your child to continue to read daily and spend some time outdoors.
