Principal's Message

Jodie Norwell, Principal.

Dear families,

What a fantastic term it has been! Our sports carnival last Friday was an absolute highlight for me and the students all competed with enthusiasm and energy on the day. Thank you to all who were involved in the planning and support throughout the day. It was wonderful to see so many of our families and friends enjoying the perfect weather and the spirit of the day.

We have some exciting news on the Canteen. The process for someone to run our Canteen is currently being finalised and we hope to share who that will be very soon. This means our Canteen will be back for Term 4. Menu and further details will be sent out to families as soon as possible. We thank all families for their patience and support whilst the school undertook this process.

A reminder that schools returns on Tuesday 15th October for students.

In the meantime, have a safe and wonderful holiday break! Jodie Norwell, Principal.

AEIIP Classroom News

The students in B8 have been working on telling news using an object. The student stands up in front of the class and talks about their object. Then the student will ask "are there any questions" and the student then answers questions about their news. Riley brought a blue shaker for his news. Phoebe asked Riley, "was the shaker a special present". Theodora made a fan for her news she said "I have a yellow fan". Phoebe brought a doll that Riley gave to her for birthday. Siobhan Sweeney, Teacher.

B9 Classroom News

As we draw towards the end of term three, the teaching staff in B9 have started to reflect on the tremendous progress many of our children have made. While there is often a big focus on their academic achievements, it is always worth remembering the improvements made in other areas such as social and interpersonal skills. This has been a busy term with a large number of events which has included some excursions to Bounce. We have also had Humphry’s Dance lessons, Scitech incursions and of course Sports Day. During these events the children all demonstrated improved attending and listening skills. They queued nicely and most took turns especially during the Sports day tabloids.

The Sports Day was a tremendous success for our children and a big thanks goes to the Julie Head and her team for their hard work. I would also like to thank the parents who agreed to participate with their children during the tabloid events. Everyone had fun and enjoyed themselves in a very safe environment.

Finally, we hope that all children and their parents enjoy the school holidays. Bob Beckman, Teacher.

H3 Classroom News

Today’s newsletter article from H3 is all about independence…

The staff have all been so impressed by the improvement in independence skills.

Among other things, we have been practising getting our chairs ready, lining up, taking our shoes off, hand washing routines, following routines during fitness activities and sitting and waiting quietly.

All students have made significant progress, not only with their own individual understanding and effort, but also when looking at what the rest of the group are doing and following their lead. Some students can now leave the classroom and line up at designated spots with no adult direction.

The photos show five students sitting on a communal bench to rest while waiting for the rest of the class catch up, and Hussein demonstrating how to perform a log roll (which he has learnt this term)!

Awesome job everyone, keep it up! Pat Ellery and Darran Wilson, Teachers.

H4 Classroom News

I have to say it has been an excellent end to Term three. The students have been working hard and already completing many of their goals. I have to make mention of how amazing EVERYONE was for the sports carnival. They all marched down the oval with their factions and ran in their races. Some even placed running against the mainstream students. A big wow to Jade who came third, Caiden coming 5th (Nearly fourth) running with B division boys! Enoch was our superstar in the tabloid games doing both year three and four games. His teams came third and he did some amazing throwing – especially in Multi-ball. Thanks to those parents who came and supported and watched their children achieve so much! It was lovely to see you all! A big thanks to Stephanie (Scott’s mum) who supplied the staff and students with a delicious platter of fruit!

Wishing you all a fabulous holiday and looking forward to a smashing Term four!!!

B1 Classroom News

The Carnival was a huge day for everyone. The students in B1 were extraordinary in their effort and team spirit with all our guys participating in at last one tabloid event. One of the highlights was the traditional ESC parachute event where a couple of students were thrown out a plane at 10,000 feet….! No, seriously this was even more fun, the four houses were represented by coloured balls, which were tossed out a parachute and gathered in their respective boxes. Stirling won the sports carnival - congratulations to all who participated. Neil Rose, Teacher.

Carnival parachute fun.

This term I have enjoyed being part of each class. I have read a number of stories to the children and then we complete an activity relating to a character in the story. This week the story was titled "The Not So Perfect Penguin, we then coloured, cut out and made our penguin. Alethial enjoyed collecting up all the penguins to play with.
