If you opened the door into Prep S on Friday and you would have caught them learning about persistence. This values lesson began with the reading of Oliver Jeffers' book 'Stuck'. Students were amazed at not only how many things could become stuck in a tree but also the attitude of a small boy who continue to throw items up into the tree in order to dislodge his kite. Everyone agreed that the boy was a great example of someone who kept on trying.
Students had a go at demonstrating persistence as they tore and cut strips of paper in order to make the longest piece of continuous paper. With a few tips along the way (it's can be important to listen to others when we find ourselves persisting) students were amazed at how their lengths of paper grew!
This week parents are invited to log into Compass, our new online student management software package. A Parent Invitational Letter with a temporary username and password will be sent home. Detailed instructions will support parents through the logging in process.
Any parents who may experience any difficulties in registering are invited to come to the 4/5/6 Area on Monday 15th May to receive support.
There are a number of parent modules available in Compass and the school will be introducing these over time. There are however, some services which we will be making available to you immediately. These include;
Our Junior School Councillors will lead the way in supporting the ANZAC Appeal over the coming days. They will be visiting classes to sell supportive ribbons and badges up until Monday. Students can purchase badges costing $1, $2, $5 or wristbands at $3 or bag tags at $4. These can also be purchased directly from the office. Your support is greatly appreciated.
A special moment of remembrance will be held during Monday morning's assembly. All are welcome to attend.
We have been lucky enough to secure a Bunnnings BBQ date and are calling for volunteers to assist with cooking and selling sausages and drinks.
