Welcome to Week 5. We have had a great week here at the Junior School. It has been wonderful watching students get back involved with sport again. Especially for this age level, sport is so important for connection, health (physical and mental), learning skills such as teamwork, and simply having fun. We have placed students in teams with their cohorts in line with the health orders and we hope they make the most out of the above opportunities even in this short time. 

I have seen a huge improvement in the presentation of our students’ uniforms and haircuts and I appreciate your assistance in this area. 

Photos 

Photos will occur on Wednesday, 10 November. If your son has PE on this day, can I please ask that he come in his school uniform and bring his PE clothes/footwear in his bag. Due to restrictions, we are limited as to what this will look like, but we will do our best.  

Walk the World — Virtual Walkathon

Walk the World Walkathon is a modified event this year, in place of our normal Walkathon. Can I please ask you to get your son involved if he isn’t involved already. The charities involved are the same charities we normally give funds to each year, and they really do rely on us. There are some amazing prizes to be won and it is for a great cause.

6 Orange — Lockdown/Online Learning Art Activity  

6 Orange were tasked with creating a piece of artwork across any medium of their choice, to represent their personal emotions/feelings/thoughts/experiences throughout lockdown/online learning. They created some very powerful and original pieces of work.

Home Learning Club — Weeks 6 and 7

Please make note of the slight changes to the afternoon sessions before you book your son in. 

  • Monday and Thursday afternoons are dedicated to the Year 5 students.
  • Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons are dedicated to the Year 6 students. 

These measures have been put in place to minimise the mixing of grades while on campus. 

The afternoon sessions also provide a quiet, supervised study space for students who want to complete their assigned tasks.

Home Learning Club operates in the Learning Hub from 3pm until 4pm. 

Procedures

>>> Click here to register your son.

Only register his name once to allow other students the opportunity to attend. The session is limited to 20 spots. There will be a roll call to ensure attendance.

Students are required to stay for the full session unless there is a message in the student diary requesting early leave, a parent signature will be required.

Behaviour

As it is important to respect the rights of others to learn and work. All students are expected to settle to work in the Learning Hub and not cause a disturbance for others.

Teachers

  • Tuesday and Wednesday — Mrs Natasha Zivanovic
  • Monday and Thursday — Mr Matt Ryan

Borrowing for the School Holidays

The holidays are fast approaching and it is vital we encourage the students to read as much as possible during them. The current Year 5 students will be permitted to borrow books for the holidays.
