We started the term welcoming back Mrs Goudie to the year 3/4 class after her leave last term. The students were thrilled to see her back.
The weather has certainly been interesting with some lovely sunny days but bitterly cold mornings. A number of students have asked for school jumpers which we are always happy to provide but please encourage your child to dress appropriately for the cold weather.We’ve had a significant number of student absences due to colds/flus, and in some cases influenza b. We encourage all students to stay home and rest until they are symptom free.
David Booth a First Nations Peramangk man worked with our student’s week one of this term. He ran workshops with all classes providing a wonderful narrative about First Nations living culture, customs and practices related to the land. We got to hear David play the yidaki (didgeridoo), make ochre, storytelling etc.
