Dear Creekside Community,
As we approach the conclusion of Term 1, I would like to ackowledge the efforts of our school community in promoting a safe and educationally vibrant environment, based on high expectations of student learning and behaviour. This year the majority of Prep students came from our own Kindergarten and they have settled into school life in a very stable and productive manner. This is also evidenced in the transition data for the Year 7 cohort. The Kinder - 9 program ensures that students enjoy a seamless transition through the school. This can only benefit student learning outcomes.
I would like to thank both students and families for their support of the College 's zero tolerance of violence and bullying. Students will be further reminded of this on Friday 21st when the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence is acknowledged. Students know and understand the values of the school, Respect, Honesty, Responsibility and Acceptance and should be congratulated on their efforts. We can be very proud of those students who have taken on leadership positions in the school and who show continued care for each other. The College vision 'Creekside Kinder - 9 College will instil the values and develop the skills and knowledge students need to live effective and purposeful lives in the global community' is at the core of our work. Teachers and the broader community will continue to work in partnership to ensure that the Creekside family environment continues to provide every opportunity for students to reach their potential.
On Friday 28th March, the community will have the opportunity to come together and enjoy Market Day festivities at the school. The further development of strong community relationships is fundamental to the aim of this project and we would encourage all our families to spend some time with us during the evening.
Term 1 has provided students with the opportunity to develop academically, physically, socially and emotionally; we will continue this great work over the coming year.
I hope the term break provides a chance for you to spend some quality family time together and we look forward to working with you again in Term 2.
Creekside motto: Learning for Life.
