The end of term 2 is fast approaching. This term students were engaged in a number of sporting activities across the school. Years 3-6 took part in the fun run while students 7-9 were participating in the athletics sports. Both programs were very successful and students are to be congratulated on their sportsmanship and effort.
A big thank you to the staff involved and to the families that were able to make it to the events. On Wednesday evening the Maths and English Professional Learning Teams conducted programs aimed at familiarising parents with the processes and practices needed to assist students with their school work. These sessions are always very helpful and I hope that parents and carers were once again able to shore up their teacher skills and feel more confident in helping students with their work.Thank you for your attendance and a big thank you to the staff who made the night so valuable.
We have been very fortunate to have been able to access Constable Jo from the proactive policing unit who has spoken with students in the Middle Years regarding cyber bullying. There is a particularly disturbing trend for some young people to use social media in a less than positive manner, causing much heartache etc for peers and their families. I want to stress that this is an issue that we find absolutely abhorrent and something we take extremely seriously. Our greatest difficulty is however, that for the most part this does not occur at school and we therefore are not always in a position to deal with the issue as we would with a more traditional ‘bullying’ issue; please discuss these issue with your child/ren and monitor their social media accounts closely.
Have a safe and wonderful break. In both the cyber and real world. We look forward to hearing all about your holidays when we return for term 3.
