As we come to the end of the semester, it is a great opportunity to reflect on the progress we have achieved. Term Two has been a different time for all and it has been outstanding to see the endurance of staff, students and parents. Thank you to parents and carers who have assisted in their child’s learning.

This week, Foundation Phase had their individual and class photos taken. On Wednesday, Semester One reports were made available to families. If you would like to discuss these reports further, please do not hesitate to contact the classroom teacher.

With the holidays coming up very soon it is important that children continue to read over the break period. This is a great opportunity for students to increase their engagement in books by reading texts that are not their usual home reader books. It is also a perfect time for students to take their reading outdoors or to a special reading area in their house. If your child has a favourite reading zone at home, we would love to see it. Please take a photo and email it to the classroom teacher and for our reading display board in the library. If your student has completed their Premier’s Reading Competition record sheet or needs a new one, class teachers can provide an additional sheet before the competition officially finishes on Friday, August 28.
