At the end of Week 2 of Term 4, we wish to share some of the developments that we have made over the past three terms, for we are beginning to see the results of collegial discussion and reflection by staff. We have begun to develop and implement small changes to curriculum delivery at Korowal.
Welcome back to school for Term 4 as we embrace the final opportunities for us to enjoy events for 2015.
Our final week of Term 3 is now complete. May you have a happy, relaxing and safe holiday!
While there were many highlights I wish to dedicate this week’s musings to honouring our Year 12 graduating students, their parents and teachers.
In Week 9 at Korowal, K,1,2 were preparing then performing their delightful concert, Year 5 welcomed their individualized letters of reply on environmental concerns from Trish Doyle, Years 11 and 12 students breathed sighs of relief as they submitted their final HSC school assessment tasks, and the HSC Music Practical Examination was conducted on Tuesday.
The landscape is awash with blossom, people are sneezing and the students are leaving jackets and jumpers all over the school. Spring is in the air in Week 8 at Korowal!
Week 6 brought us a touch of Spring in our beautiful mountains home at Hazelbrook. The week began at 8.00am on Monday morning with construction work commencing on our library extension and the electric tools and demolition continued to resound until Thursday. Stage 1 is now complete and we await the concreters.
At the end of week 5 the term has settled back into regular routines. Open Day was delightful, Bush Day created a colourful background to the entrance of the primary school, our Japanese visitors have been and gone, Year 9 have recovered from an exhilarating camp, and excursions are a regular feature throughout the school throughput this term. There are a few different viruses and colds about so please take care. The students are better off resting at home rather than attending school when they are unwell.
The doors were open and the breeze was flowing through the school as we welcomed hundreds of families to Korowal on Saturday. Our Open Day was a huge success and a great celebration of the students’ work and teachers guidance. Many students and parents assisted with the set up and running of events and created a hive of creativity. Through the laughter and chat they provided us with tasty food and beverages, ushered visitors around the school and cleaned and reset the rooms.
It is a great week when we have international visitors as we did in Week 3, for we experience the school through fresh eyes. At our welcoming assembly David, a teacher from Suginami, talked us through the Japanese school experience, and this was illuminating for us all. It was particularly surprising for our students when the 16 year old guests all confirmed that their mothers make their lunch boxes, or bento, for them each day. At Korowal these students are assimilating and are regular customers at the canteen!
