LEADERSHIP FOR TERM 2
I am pleased to be back at Point Pearce Campus for three days a week on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, sharing the Leadership role with Miss Kath who will lead on Mondays and Tuesdays. This structure will continue for the rest of Term 2.
I would like to thank Kath for her strong leadership and work as the Head of Campus during my absence. I know that the first term is always a packed one, and under her leadership the staff team and children have planned and achieved so much.
RIDING FOR THE DISABLED
One of our students Robyn has been able to access regular session at Kadina with RFDA. Robyn attends each fortnight with Miss Jacki and her Nana.
She thoroughly enjoys these sessions. With experiences such as this, we have noticed Robyn’s awareness and confidence increasing.
For the start of this Term we have a 92% attendance rate, which is extremely pleasing.
R-2 TRANSITION ON FRIDAYS
On Fridays the R-2 Class transitions to Maitland Campus and spends some lesson time with Miss Nixon’s Year 5-6 Class after lunch. The Year 5-6 students have organised and led a series of ‘Indigenous Games’ for our children to join in.
The older children have developed some good organisational/team building skills. They have also shared completing jigsaws with the R-2 children, developing team work, taking turns and sharing. Strong friendships between both groups have started to develop.
Our two SRC Reps Kym and Liarna are enjoying meetings on alternate Fridays, and we love Assemblies. The last two weeks have seen Luka and Eugene receive Merit Cards.
Mr. Tuck has our students in a Performing Arts lesson with Ms Dayman’s children as well, where they are working towards a performance at the end of the term.
TRIP TO THE ‘WAWA’
Last week the R-2 Class took a Cultural trip to Chinamans Well beach. The visit was to incorporate some Narungga Language: ‘wawa’ beach / ‘muru’ sand and ‘yardlu’ sea.
MOTHERS DAY MORNING TEA
Last Thursday the Point Pearce Campus hosted a morning tea to say Thank you’ to all of the mums and Nanas connected to our children. Their ongoing support in caring for our children, and ensuring that they have such great attendance, is much appreciated. After morning tea the women were all given thank you cards that the children had written on. It was a small way to show our gratitude for this amazing group of people.
