On Thursday morning students in 3-6 participated in the NSW Premier’s Spelling Bee. It was fantastic to see so many students having a go. Congratulations to all that took part and well done to the winners Jayden and Karim, our GPS super spellers!
Thank you to Mr Waterman for organising this opportunity for our students.
We have a renewed focus on attendance and it has been so wonderful to see steady improvements in whole school and individual attendance rates over the term. Mrs Smith has organised a special treat for students who have reached at or above 90% attendance this term- a trip to the adventure playground! I look forward to joining the fun next week.
Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL)
To acknowledge the school-wide effort towards positive behaviour choices, Mr Waterman has designed an amazing orienteering activity for all students to participate in next Friday. These acknowledgement days are used to celebrate the collective accomplishments of students working hard to follow Goulburn Public School’s behaviour expectations of safe, respectful and responsible learner. What a great way to end the term.
Teachers have been hard at work preparing half yearly reports for all students K-6. These reports will be mailed at the end of next week. I encourage you to read the report with your child and celebrate the many strengths they demonstrate inside and outside of the classroom. Please contact your child’s teacher if you would like to discuss any aspect of the school report.
There are plenty of events already planned for Term 3 including the GCOPS concert, the district athletics carnival and the Life Education Van. More details will be communicated next term.
I would like to wish all our students and families a relaxing winter holiday break!
Students return for Term 3 on Tuesday 18 July.
