Mosquitos

It’s that time of the year again when the mozzie population increases and we see more ticks in the environment. This is a feature right across our Shire, not just at school. Whilst we take what action we can at school to minimise the risk, you can also support your child by sending along an insect repellent which you are happy for your child to use. Whilst we do have some repellant at school, we are aware that parents have different preferences for choice of product – for this reason, we ask you to send along a repellant of your choice if you would like your child to have some extra protection at school.

Would you like to vote at our AGM or be elected to the CBRSS Board?

As you may be aware, the school holds its Annual General Meeting in May each year. The Board works with governance aspects of the school such as strategic planning and ensuring the school is financially viable and able to operate into the future. The Board is comprised of a number of elected Directors (elected at the AGM by members of the company) as well as some Board appointed Directors. The Board welcomes enquiries from anyone interested in becoming a Director in the future. Anyone wishing to stand for election or vote at the election must be a member of the company. The Board has one more meeting before the AGM and thus any applications for membership must be received by this date. If you would like to vote at the AGM or stand for election and you are not already a member of the company, please contact the office to ask for an application form. Applications must be received by Tuesday 9th April in order to be processed in time for the AGM in May. For enquiries about joining the Board, please contact the Chair of the Board at steveh@capebyronsteiner.nsw.edu.au

Reflection on Easter

At present, mankind exists amidst inharmonious, disordered conditions. But man knows how the world has emerged from chaos, and that out of his chaotic inner being harmony will ultimately arise. Like the regular paths of the planets around the sun, so will the inner saviour of mankind arise, — herald and creator of unity and harmony amid all disharmony. All humanity shall be reminded by the Easter festival of the resurrection of the spirit from the present obscurity of human nature. – Rudolf Steiner

From the Principal

Hello everyone,

I would like to start this newsletter by thanking everyone who contributed to, participated in and attended our Autumn Festival last week. It was such a special event and the warmth and community spirit it generated is still reverberating around the school. These moments when we come together as a community are truly precious and help to anchor us into the rhythm of the year.

This week I would like to honour our teachers for their attention to detail, particularly in relation to the aesthetic in the classroom. If you walk around the school, you will see some incredible works of art on the blackboards. Many of our teachers stay back at night or come in on the weekends to create beautiful blackboards to support the current Main Lesson. We know that one of the best ways to access learning is through the feeling life, and the beautiful blackboard drawings can certainly evoke a depth of feeling towards the topic. When students walk into the room and see a new blackboard drawing, the message the students receive is that their teacher cares about them and cares enough about the topic to create something beautiful to introduce it. If you happen to be wandering around the school, I encourage you to have a peek into some of the classroom windows to have a look at our teachers’ amazing work.

Next Monday is the P&F AGM. Our P&F do such a wonderful job of supporting parents and the school. Each P&F meeting provides an opportunity for you to hear from the leadership of the school and a Board member as well as the chance to discuss issues and topics of interest relating to the school. The P&F is not just about fundraising, but provides parents with an opportunity to come together and share thoughts and ideas as well as having some social time. It is such an important part of the fabric of our school and can only exist with the support of parents who are willing to participate. If you have never been to a P&F meeting before, I encourage you to come along on Monday night. I look forward to seeing you there.

Peace
Nerrida

Please stay safe on Social Media

Kirra Pendergast is the director of the Safe on Social Media website and she recently gave a very informative and thought provoking talk at our school. www.safeonsocial.com

You would be careful in real life, so why not online?

Social Media is viewed by most people as a fun way to share information about themselves, friendships, family and things that happen in their day-to-day lives.

But things can go wrong…

It is important to understand that what you post on social media sites can affect your life both in good ways and bad.

Safe on Social Media guides are available on our website you can find them here
