The term is almost at an end and Week 9 brought some lovely acts of random kindness. The feel of the school is very positive. There has been a lot of activity outside of our routine this week so a quick summary is in order.
In Week 7 we managed to grab perhaps the final hot day for Autumn as the high school enjoyed their swimming carnival. With colourful themes, sunshades and scrumptious baking, the year groups competed for points to add to their swimming participation tally.
Week 6 was a superb week for Korowal School. Quite apart from the beautiful days and outdoor play all week (rather than wet weather play), and our visit from Amna of the Australian Federal Police to speak with primary and high school students about cybersafety, we achieved another milestone in our history.
With Week 5 passing and Autumn imminent, we are now half way through the first term and, as we have settled, it is time to undertake our major professional development project for 2015. This is a new initiative for Korowal.
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 The summer scorching of recent years has been replaced by lush growth and vibrant colour.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.
