Dear parents and carers,
As we come to the end of Term 2, it gives me great pleasure in sharing some wonderful news with the community.
Every five years, schools in NSW undergo an External Validation process using the School Excellence Framework. The School Excellence Framework provides a clear description of the key elements of high-quality practice across the areas of learning, teaching and leading. Each year, schools assess their practices against the Framework to evaluate and report. This process gives schools the opportunity to measure progress against the school's strategic direction. It allows for schools to refine their practice to ensure that the school is making progress towards its vision. The validation process requires the school to provide evidence of meeting the descriptors which then needs to be validated by an external panel.
This term, our school went through the process, and it is with extreme delight and pride that I can inform the community that our school is excelling in all 14 elements. This is by no means an easy achievement. Out staff has worked extremely hard for the past six years to achieve this level of excellence. As the leader of the school, I feel privileged and honoured to have so many outstanding teachers at the school. As a community we should celebrate this success. Our aim is to keep growing and ensuring that we continue to provide our students with truly one of the best educational settings.
I would like to thank you all for bringing your child to school on time every day. Our school continues to have one of the best attendance rate in the state. School attendance is not choice, but compulsory. Unless your child is unwell or there is extenuating circumstance, your child should be at school.
As the winter months continue, please send your child to school in warm and comfortable full school uniform. If you need assistance with uniform, please see the office.
I wish you all a wonderful winter break.
