In our professional development sessions this year we have been looking at how we facilitate learning, and understand ourselves as learners, amongst other things. Louise presented some of these strategies to Years 11 and 12 at the start of our academic year two weeks ago and we have been integrating them to varying degrees throughout the school. As they are applicable to family life as well as school, I would like to focus on this theme in our Window with A View for Week 6.
We wish to congratulations and Kizz and Winone on the birth of their baby, Zohara Hope, last Sunday evening. The students in Year 6 are as excited as the parents!
While we all participated in Week 3, it has passed in a blink! In primary school our swimming intensive has begun and in high, the academic year is almost complete. Students in Years 7-10 have only three days at school next week due to the staff development days on Thursday and Friday, where teachers prepare for the changeover of our academic year on Monday 7th November.
In Week 2 the grounds are looking lovely with blossom and roses, and our bridge over the creek has been completed with side guards. On Friday the staff had an afternoon tea with Kizz and Winone to toast to the imminent arrival of their baby. As we sat by the campfire we were bombarded by mosquitoes, which prompts me to recommend that the students take care to be covered when playing on the meadow. It is also important to know that the UV ratings have been very high over the past two weeks.
We have settled back into school routines with ease in Week 1, partially with thanks to the preparations undertaken by staff over the term break. Throughout the school the students appear to be happy and energized, and the cold snap certainly took us by surprise.
Well, what a busy last week of term we had! Caroline and Mel, on top of all the usual tasks that keep them busy, were able to put together the numerous documents, cards, gifts, powerpoint presentations etc. in preparation for Barb, Greg and Louise’s trip to China.
In Week 8 the primary teachers and students started collecting flowers, nuts and other interesting natural flora in preparation for their Bush Day mandala. Next Wednesday is that special time when primary students spend the day participating in natural fabric dying, bush cooking, constructing, weeding, and many other interesting activities which raise awareness of our beautiful environment, the patterns within nature, and the benefits of creative collaboration.
There are many things being prepared for through out Week 7 and into Week 8. Our K, 1,2 children are excited that their concert is fast approaching while Years 5 and 6 are more settled in their approach. Year 8 are looking at elective choices for the first time, Year 10 are preparing for their City Camp and Years 11 and 12 for their Trial Exams. Caroline has emailed the revised calendar this week and it is rich with imminent cultural experiences.
