This past week has been a week of many highlights – what a great end to the term!
Sincere thanks to Kali, Anna-Louise and the FOTS committee for organising a very successful Harvest Gala Day last Saturday. The parent and community support for this inaugural fundraiser was amazing. Thanks also to our Staff and Board members for their contributions, and of course to our children for making this day.
I felt very proud of our children and staff during our Anzac Day Service yesterday. High standards of respect were shown by all during the service, the quality of the literacy and art work was outstanding, and the children’s confidence when they were sharing their presentations was commendable. The Cromwell RSA’s involvement in our service, and Kleft Tan, bagpiper, made this a very special commemoration. Thanks Jude for organising this and for the senior children for leading the service.
Today, classes are on the move. Helen and Linda Forbes are moving their classes into the new classrooms (R6, 7) ; Rachael and Lisa are moving into Helen and Linda’s classes respectively (R5, 8); Luchia is moving to Lisa’s class (R3) and Therese is setting up Rachael’s class (R4) as a new entrant class, which will commence at the start of term 2. We are hoping that the Portacom, which was moved onto site as an extra classroom whilst our new rooms were being built will be removed as soon as possible, to enable to Board to commence the development of the entrance way.
We are indebted to our school community for the support our children have received over the past term. We all want the best possible outcomes for our children and to help them to be the best they can be.
