In the words of an old Indian proverb, I’ve been learning what it is like to “Walk a mile in another man’s moccasins”. This means ‘seeing with the eyes of another, listening with the ears of another, and feeling with the heart of another’. And over the past three weeks I have learned we are very lucky to have a Principal who works so very hard leading our school community. We welcome back Mr Nicholas next week after a well-deserved 3 week break with his family - we’ve certainly missed his presence around the school!
A big thank you to Ms Robyn Slater who spent last week acting in a Senior Staff role. This week we welcome Mrs Anita Button in the acting role and Mrs Vanessa Newton-Brown in for Literacy Support. We also wish Mr Malcolm McArthur all the best as he takes some leave and are happy that Mrs Jeanette Allen will be taking Garden classes in his absence.
Thank you for your ongoing support with ensuring our school community is safe. A reminder to stay vigilant about hand washing, hand sanitiser and 1.5m physical distancing if you are a visitor to our school. Whilst the Premier announced today that there will be no interstate travel until at least December 1, it is important that we don’t become complacent about ensuring the safety of our loved ones. Please continue to observe the messages around our school about being COVID aware.
Student, Staff and Parent Surveys
Last week you received a note home about completing Special Data Collection Forms for Parents. This week a reminder the Student Wellbeing Survey and The Staff and Parent Satisfaction Surveys will commence from next week. Survey data is important in providing feedback to improve our school. We want to hear your thoughts about what we are doing well, where there are areas for improvement and what you think about how we are travelling. These surveys are important for future planning and for building a stronger school community.
Roseneath Rivulet Planting Project
Late last year our school partnered with MONA 24 Carrot Garden and Landcare Tasmania and was successful in securing a grant through the Australian Government Communities for Environment Program. Our project aims to revegetate part of the schools property that borders the School Garden and the Roseneath Rivulet, firstly by restoring habitats for native animals, and in doing so teaching students about land care and conservation. This week Mr Andrew Wilkie MP, volunteers, Student Leaders and classes will be helping to plant along the Rivulet. This is a long term project which will ultimately see the boundary to our school and the creek restored to its natural habitat.
