FROM THE ACTING PRINCIPAL
St Joseph’s Learning Spaces
We often have people ask us how our rooms operate and why we do what we do. Over the term, I will share with you the reasons why we love our teaching and learning spaces and philosophy.
Reason Number One: Small group workshops allowing for target teaching according to need.
Reason Number Two: Our rooms enable students to move regularly.
Reason Number Three: Our learning spaces enable regular collaboration opportunities.
Reason Number Four: Our learning spaces help build positive relationships.
Reason Number Five: Increased level of engagement
Reason Number Six: Teacher Expertise. Our rooms allow for teachers to take control of the subjects they are most knowledgeable and passionate about. A knowledgeable and passionate teacher will enhance the learning opportunities and engagement of students.
St Joseph Feast Day / Grandparents Morning Tea
Last Friday we celebrated the Feast Day of St Joseph with a whole school mass followed by morning tea with Grandparents and the drawing of our Easter raffle. Thank you to Mrs Carter for organising such an uplifting mass, the P&F volunteers for sorting all the food donations, families for the generous donations of food for morning tea and the year 6 students and teachers for helping on the day. It was a truly wonderful occasion.
Congratulations to the Year 3 and 5 students who completed their NAPLAN assessments last week. This week we will catch up as many students who were absent as possible. I look forward to seeing the results.
Year 6 Camp
Next week our year 6 students and staff head off to Chaverim Outdoor Education Centre for camp. We wish all campers a safe and enjoyable camp. I will also be attending camp, so in my absence, Mrs Elizabeth Carter will be Acting Principal.
Second Hand Uniform Shop
The school second hand uniform shop is located at the top of the ramp of the stage area and is open Wednesday and Friday mornings from 8:00am – 8:45am.
