The last week of Term 1 was so busy that most of us fell into the break. On the last Thursday, our Year 5 and 6 students had the pleasure of attending a workshop with 3 sculptors who are exhibiting in the Scenic World Sculpture Exhibition. The children reflected and created around the theme of change: transitions from primary to high school. Talulah and Amanda accompanied them to this day of creativity and by their reports, they all had a splendid time together. There are photos and a summary published on our Korowal facebook page.
The rain has created waterfalls at Korowal in Week 7, with huge volumes of water cascading down the rocky embankment from the staff carpark to the back driveway. As one primary teacher stated, ‘I can’t compete with that!’, and the students were in awe of the volume of water both outside and inside the window frames as the gutters back flushed.
This week the sunshine was welcomed by us all. Colour and energy bursts were features of this week. It was glorious to hear singing and laughter bouncing off the trees as the children played in primary, raced about the ball court or sat beneath the trees in high school.
Week 5 had a rainy start and a rainy end, with lots of rain in between. That's a lovely thing as our grounds look beautiful and the birds are singing a symphony between showers. We want to thank the children for coping with being indoors for most of everyday, and for adding colour to otherwise grey and misty landscape.
What a week of activities we have had in Week 4 at Korowal! Between camps, carnivals, work bees and meetings we have gathered both within and outside of school to enjoy each other’s company.
From the ebullient novelty of Kindy through to the measured familiarity of our HSC students, throughout the School in Week 3 our students appeared settled and engaged. Thank you for attending our class meetings and sharing your questions and thoughts. Next week we have our final meeting as the Years 3 and 4 parent meeting is to be held on Monday.
We wish to extend a warm welcome to all of our new Kindergarten students and their families, and we thank those parents who were able to attend school on their first day and have a cuppa with the parents while their children settled into the new routines of ‘big school’.
Welcome back to our 2017 school year at Korowal. We have many new faces with us this year and we encourage you to drop by and introduce yourselves to Deb in the school office, and Maria in the library. The School is looking great!
