A Window with a View
In spite of the rain, the school photos went ahead, with thanks to Debbie Fear. The light on overcast days can be a photographer’s dream, so we look forward to viewing the results!
Primary enjoyed Bush school on Monday. It was a beautifully productive and relaxed day with native bee resting places built, or air b’n’b’s as the children referred to them, Year 6 students read books on local birdlife to the younger students, woven stars were made from wool and branches, stories were told by the campfire, and more equally stimulating things saw our students and beautiful grounds alive with activity.
On Thursday evening a small gathering of parents met with us to discuss the merit in having a Parents and Friends, or Parents and Citizens’ Association. This has been requested by many parents who are wanting to forge greater connections with the school, but cannot see where or how to do so. A summary of this evening’s discussion will be emailed to families this week. No firm decision was made. It was suggested however, that since we have our Open Day and Fair on August 12th, planning for this may enable more discussions to occur, to build on what is started.
This week we will be sending out an invitation for a class representative parent to coordinate the events that each class will host for the Fair. It is an excellent way to get to know families throughout the school! Following this, we would like to hold our first Fair planning meeting on Thursday 22nd, the day before the end of term. This meeting will be held in the evening, 6.30 for 7.00pm start, in G1 (in the middle of the school). It will kick start a fabulous opportunity for us to enjoy being in each other’s company and to celebrate Korowal.
May you enjoy this long weekend!
