I know that in many newsletters I have emphasised how proud we all are of the children within our school. This week was yet another opportunity to be blown away by them all. For me, it began with Year 5 Camp. These children were such wonderful representatives of our school and as parents you would have been so proud as well. Their behaviour was impeccable and the commitment and determination they showed was inspiring. I had the opportunity to attend the rainforest and sand dune experience, along with the giant swing and canoeing with different groups. Then we come to Thursday night's dance eisteddfod and again - blown away! Our children were so supportive of each other and the other competitors and we were blessed with some beautiful comments from the organising committee about the children's behaviour. Mrs Imay has listed the results in her section of this Newsletter.
SRC END OF TERM TREAT: What a fantastic way to finish such a busy term. The children had many laughs when they saw the staff dressed up for both the fundraiser and Lip Sync Battles. There was much excitement had by all and it provided a fun experience to lead into the holidays.
P&F MEETING: On Monday night this week, the P&F had an opportunity to provide feedback on the school homework guidelines. This allowed consultation to be completed with the parent body and staff have begun their review process. This will continue into Term Four and I will update the community when the final review has been completed. I would like to thank the parents that attended this night and provided this valuable feedback.
CARPARK RESTORATION: We have been extremely lucky to have once again been given support from the Parish for restoration and improvement work. St Agnes' Primary will have a complete revamp of the car park and the first process will begin during the school holidays with the parent turning circle near 'Kiss and Drop' being the first area to have work completed on it. This work should cause minimal disruption to our school over this holiday time. The next process will also take place in the January holiday period. I will keep you updated closer to that date.
STAFF DEVELOPMENT DAY - PUPIL FREE DAY: On Tuesday 6 October, like all Catholic Primary Schools in the Lismore Diocese, staff will be engaging in a professional learning opportunity about the new History syllabus document that will need to be implemented into the classrooms. This learning will allow staff time to become more familiar with these documents and allow for collaborative planning opportunities.
UNIFORM CHANGE: It’s that time of year again when the winter uniforms can be packed away as we head back into summer uniforms on Wednesday 7 October. If you have found that your child has grown out of their Winter uniform and/or it is no longer required in your family, you can donate them to our uniform pool. Details are listed below:
HOLIDAY WISHES: We would like to wish all of our staff and school families a restful and relaxing holiday break. We hope that you get time to enjoy many family experiences and look forward to seeing the children return on Wednesday 7 October for the beginning of Term Four.
FAREWELL: Elise Millard (2B) left St Agnes’ this week, we wish her all the best at her new school.
BABY NEWS: Aurora, a new baby sister for Jai Meehan-Graham (2TB) was born on Monday. Mum and Aurora are both doing well.
