To all our new families, welcome aboard, I understand that these first few days can be quite stressful but I hope that you have found the children have had fun and are adapting well to their new surroundings.
2015 – P&C's support of our school
The P&C committees and volunteers do a fantastic job in raising funds for the school and it is wonderful to see that in 2015 we have agreed to financially support some very important initiatives to enhance our children's learning experience. This year the P&C is funding;
- Additional teaching staff to support mathematics learning in the classroom which the school is also funding with additional resources. This will be critical in helping our children with the new maths syllabus being introduced this year
- Expanding the IT learning capability of the school with the purchase of 60 new iPads and networking system to augment the schools investment in computer hubs, new laptops and peripherals
- Investing in a touchscreen TV in 3D's room to replace an original Panaboard to enhance the student and teacher interaction
A new lawn for the school
You would have also noticed that over the summer break we commenced returfing of the lawn area on the Thompson Street side of the school. A very special thanks toCarl Small, Libby Small, Brad Reed, Greg Hutton, Sean Murphy, Andrew Cox and Bailey Cox who helped out over two Sundays to get the area prepped. The grass being laid has been specially designed for hard traffic areas so, it should hold up very well. We apologise for the delay in laying the turf but the heavy rain made it impossible to complete the work but we have been told it is a priority to will be laid asap.
