Wow! What an amazing few weeks we have had at the College.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank each and everyone of our families for your support throughout these events and for your understanding as we lead into a very busy time of the year.
We are Learners
The Australian Mathematics Competition awards are in, students will receive their results on Friday of week 7. Students will be acknowledged at assembly for their efforts, if you have a child who participated in the competition, I encourage you to come to week seven’s Friday afternoon assembly.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank our students for demonstrating their capacity to be learners through entering the competition. It is a great opportunity for our students to demonstrate their learning in Mathematics. Well done to all who participated.
We are Respectful
It always amazes me how amazing our students are during our ceremonies of commemoration. We should be truly proud of our students who demonstrated high levels of respect during our Remembrance Day Ceremony. This year marks the 100 year anniversary of the cease of World War I, we thank our families for their continued support in helping our students to understand the important of Remembrance Day and demonstrating respect towards our soldiers.
We are Responsible
Our Year 1/2 Students participated in their camping program this week. All students were able to demonstrate high levels of responsibility, by taking care of their belongings and following instructions throughout the day/s. Congratulations to Ms Hamilton, Ms Wood and Mr Brennan for their leadership of the program. The students thoroughly enjoyed the program, I know they are all looking forward to their camp next year!
Thank you to the parents for supporting our camping programs, without your ongoing support these programs could not run.
We are Safe
In the last newsletter I reminded families of the importance of wearing hats in term 4. This is a part of keeping ourselves safe from the sun’s harmful rays during the warmer month. Unfortunately, I still see multiple students without hats, this is extremely disappointing and means that as a community we are not following our expected behaviours. We hope that families can work with us in teaching our students how to keep themselves safe by encouraging them to wear their hats during the day.
