Welcome back to the start of the 2017 School Year and I hope that you had a wonderful holiday and are ready for another positive and enriching year. I had the opportunity to visit each class last week and have loved seeing the students so engaged and happy. Hearing the many and varied experiences the students have enjoyed during their summer holidays has been wonderful. It is also reassuring that students are keen to reconnect with their friends, get to know their new teachers and so eager to become immersed in their learning. It was also very reassuring to see how well the new Reception students (and other students new to our school) have settled in. I would like to extend a warm welcome to our new students and their families.

The Year 7s have begun their training in Michael Grose's Young Leaders Program. We started by having a discussion about people who we know that are good leaders, and spoke about the qualities that these positive leaders have. Students then chose a quality that they felt was important for an effective leader to have and are writing a reflection on what it means to be a good leader.

Year 7

We will be hosting our first "Coffee After Drop-off" on Friday 17th February from 9am in the Bridge Street Library. All are welcome, including younger siblings. This will give you an opportunity to learn more about what we do and raise any issues/questions you may have. Alternatively, you can just come along for some good coffee and cake and a chance to catch up in an informal setting.

Carnevale will be held in Week 5 of this term, Tuesday 28th February. More information will come home soon. Remember to check the Skoolbag app and your child's home bag for important notices and forms.

This term there is a Pupil Free Day on Friday 10th March (Week 6). OSHC will be available on the day, more information will be distributed in Week 3.
