Yulmburral to Term 4
Welcome back to Saints for the final term of 2019. I hope everyone had an enjoyable and restful break enjoying footy finals, warmer days and a time to relax.
Planning for 2020 is in full swing and enrolments for Prep and other year groups are being finalised.
We welcome Mrs Lee Newell back to our school community. Lee will be assisting classes on Monday and Friday mornings until the end of Week 8.
Today was Crazy Socks Day and it was lots of fun seeing the weird and crazy sock styles visible across the school. An update regarding the amount raised will be communicated once all monies have been counted. A big THANK YOU to Mrs Hall in driving this initiative.
There is a survey form that has been emailed seeking feedback around items for consideration at the next Board Meeting. We value your voice and The Board will use all feedback to help guide the school to make decisions that reflect the needs of all stakeholders.
Talking of surveys… An expression of interest was sent to parents to measure the interest in families willing to ‘sponsor a tree’ for the school playground. The intention being each tree is a legacy of the family’s time at the school and a gift of shade for future generations of children who will one day be at Saints. The EOI has over 30 families showing a willingness to pay $100 for a tree and family plaque. On the back of this positive response the school will investigate the possibility of purchasing a) more trees and b) more mature trees.
Congratulations to our piano students who recently experienced success in their Music Examinations. A special thanks to our music teachers, Jo and Katie who prepared each student for their assessments. The instrumental music program and school choir will continue to be an extra curricula offering for students in 2020.
