On Tuesday of Week 3, we invited all our new Groves students from Years 1-3 to a special ‘New Student Morning Tea’ in Tiny Town. Students were able to meet our Chaplain, ‘Chappy Jeff’, our Enrichment Teacher, Mrs Barnes and I for some fun outdoor games. Many students excitedly gave a recount of their last holidays while they balanced themselves on stilts, had a go with a hula hoop or played with the skipping ropes. Fruits, biscuits and juice was shared for morning tea and friendship circles began to expand. This was a great opportunity for our new students to feel welcome and included within our Foundation Phase and build stronger relationships with their peers and staff members.
