On Friday at the end of Week 4 the primary children were excited about their swimming carnival. Today, Saturday, our front door is open and we are welcoming prospective families this morning. The school is looking beautiful and there is a lot of new interest as I write this.
In week 3 the school is looking beautiful as Jacqueline and Caradine continue to do a fine job with our gardens. The summer scorching of recent years has been replaced by lush growth and vibrant colour.
It is always surprising how quickly we adopt our routines and this week the school does feel settled. In Week 2 we welcomed our new kindy children and their families- what a delightful experience for the primary school! The high school students again stood back and commented on how cute and how small the kindies are, with nostalgic sighs and giggles. To those who were able, thank you for preparing morning tea and welcoming for our incoming families.
The children are back! On Thursday of Week 1, happy, colourful, excited children and young adults greeted each other enthusiastically (mostly) and the sounds of squealing and laughter filled the air. For some, the return was less comfortable and gentle encouragement from the car was a necessary segue to the classroom. The sun was shining and the grass was luscious for the students return to school. Thankfully the rain stopped so the students were able to spill out onto the grounds at recess and lunchtime, although there were a few more insect bites than usual.
As the day draws to a close so too does the final moment of the school year for 2014. What a fabulous and busy year we have had! Today, Friday 19th, we sign off from school for a month and we are looking forward to the opportunity to rest and replenish. However before we begin to unwind there are some special moments to share.
We are rapidly approaching the end of the year and Week 7 has culminated in two significant events – the Year 12 Formal at the Carrington on Friday night and the Year 6 Graduation afternoon on Saturday. Both events were a ritualistic celebration of significant years at Korowal for families, students and teachers, and it was a privilege to celebrate with them.
As week 6 settled the high school into the early stages of our new academic year, primary classes were moving closer to their end of year events, with the K,1,2 concert now behind them. We have one final whole school community event scheduled for the afternoon of Sunday November 30th and posters have now been placed around the school to bring this to our attention, as this becomes a very busy time of the year in the build up to Christmas holidays and we would hate for you to miss it.
