The term is well underway and the school has been a hive of activity over the last couple of weeks. As the winter season begins to recede, we are all feeling the new energy of the coming spring. This is a great time for learning and a great time for approaching projects with a renewed vigour and sense of purpose.
The Repair Care and Maintenance Day last Saturday was a wonderful day of our school community coming together to bring some added love and attention to our beautiful site. The entrance to our school is now looking really lovely and our Administration building is sparkling. We took on some of your suggestions from the parent engagement evening and focussed our attention on just two areas of the school and this really helped to develop a stronger community feeling as everyone pitched in and worked together. I really enjoyed catching up with some of you on the day and would like to thank you for giving some of your time to come along and help out. Look out for some further changes to our Repair, Care and Maintenance days next year.
Our Class Three parents are working really hard to pull together what will be another wonderful Spring Fair. They have been working for several months and are now in the last stages of preparation. The theme for this year’s Spring Fair is “The Earth is our Garden” and it promises to be another wonderful celebration of our school community, the changing season and our incredible natural environment. Please do invite your family and friends to come along and help us to celebrate.
In other news, we are in the process of finalising our 2017 Kindergarten enrolment process. This can be quite a challenging process as we have many more people applying than places available and, inevitably, we will have to disappoint some people. We have been working hard to ensure our process is clear and transparent so that all applicants know what to expect. In a time when our school is experiencing very healthy enrolments, this is one of the more difficult processes. It is never easy to disappoint families who want to join our community.
