Welcome back to what is shaping up to be another busy term! Students and staff have settled back into the school routine smoothly and are preparing for some great events in the next few weeks. This week we celebrated NAIDOC Week through the 2023 theme ‘For Our Elders’. Across every generation, Elders have played, and continue to play, an important role and hold a prominent place in our communities and families. They are cultural knowledge holders, trailblazers, nurturers, advocates, teachers, survivors, leaders, hard workers and our loved ones. We have paid respect to Elders past and present through a variety of classroom activities and a presentation led by Mrs Munro. Collaborative artworks completed this week will be displayed throughout the school.
The district athletics carnival is scheduled for next Friday and I look forward to attending with Mr Waterman and Mr White. Congratulations to all students that have made it through to the district level. Notes were sent home this week to those eligible students.
Education Week 2023 will be held from Monday 31 July to Friday 4 August 2023 (Week 3, Term 3). This year's theme celebrates 175 years of public education in NSW. Our annual GCOPS concert will be held as part of Education Week, showcasing performances from all our local Goulburn public schools. Students in the choir and dance group have been working hard and are excited to perform for you! Further opportunities for families to visit classrooms and see the wonderful work of our students will be advertised next week.
I look forward to a productive and successful Term 3.
