INSIGHT SRC - DOLSIS SURVEY: Once again this year, parents of our parent body will be selected to participate in the Diocese of Lismore School Improvement Survey (DOLSIS) in March. Insight SRC is conducting this survey on behalf of your child’s school and the Catholic Schools Office Lismore. It is designed to assist our school community in gaining an understanding of our parents' perception of their children’s experience of school. The results will benefit everyone within the school by providing valuable information about the ways in which the school can use staff, student and parent input to plan programs and activities to improve your child's experience at school. All schools will be provided with the opportunity to survey all staff, students in Years 3 - 6 and parents. All individual responses from staff, students and parents will be kept confidential and will not be identifiable. Information is summarised and provided back to schools to create further action plans to improve the school.
NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION AGAINST BULLYING AND VIOLENCE: Today is the National Day Against Bullying and Violence. Children viewed a short video in class today. There are a number of websites that I would like to draw your attention to for further information, activities for parents and children of all groups that aim to educate, inform and engage the community in developing a community wide awareness of, support for and no tolerance attitude towards bullying.
EASTER EGG DONATION AND RAFFLE: It would be great if families could start sending in their donations for the Easter Egg raffle. A reminder that one donation per family is all that is required. When the donation is made, you will also receive a ticket into the raffle. Further tickets can be purchased at 50c each or 3 for $1. The children will begin to sell tickets over the coming weeks.
EASTER EGG HAT PARADE: This year, we have decided to run both the Easter Hat Parade and Book Week Parade. Start planning your creations now - The Easter Hat Parade will be held on Wednesday 28 March at 8:55am under the Shelter. We can't wait to see the excitement play out!
