With news that our old building might be about to go there is a frenzy to empty the facility. The building will be open on Saturday during the Election to encourage anyone who wants anything to 'make us an offer'! Anyone can have a sneak preview of what is inside by visiting our Election Day Sale Website. There are bookshelves, tables, chairs and much more so please don't hesitate to pay us a visit. If you would like to know more than speak with Jeff Jackson or drop into the office.
This Tuesday will be the first of three whole school transition sessions aimed at giving students an opportunity to familiarise themselves with not only new possible classmates but also new different learning spaces. At 12:30pm on Tuesday students from across the school will be moving to their new learning areas. They will be meeting with the teachers in that area and discuss the changes that they might need to embrace as they take their 2015 learning step. The second session will be with other teachers on 4th December. The final session will be in the last week of term on 15th December when they will meet their 2015 classmates and teacher!
Students and staff at Rosanna have been learning to a different bell due to the failure of the school PA on Thursday and Friday. Mr Jackson reported that "history had been rediscovered with the use of the old bell dating back to the origins of the school." He reported that he was looking forward to the return of the electric bell because he was tired of the Santa Claus jokes!
This week our bikes will be moving to the new bike rack area. There will be some shuffling of spaces over the coming weeks as we find storage for the bits and pieces currently located in the 'old building' that we hope will soon be demolished. Here's the plan ... the bikes will move to the bike racks, the students' sport equipment to the old bike shed, the workshop to the old students' sports area, the bins to the old workshop! Now draw a breath! Sounds something akin to the song 'There was an old lady!'
We are eager to ensure that when word comes to demolish the building we can have it removed as soon as possible. Your help at the 'Lend a Hand' evening on Friday afternoon on 28th November will be greatly appreciated. It will help with getting ready for the Election Day Sale as well as moving of bits and pieces around the school. Please let us know if you can make it!
Another lushous crop of herbs and leaf leaves were harvest be students this afternoon. Our sustainability group is becoming financially sustainable as they use the money they have raised to further support their actions at Rosanna.
A special thanks to them all for their actions that have left us all healthier!
Studnets from the 1/2 classes were seen dancing and drumming their way through the the morning on Thursday. A special guest drummer, Shaba,provided an insight into the cultural background of drumming as well as giving a few tips and tricks into playing drums. It must have been fun as a number of students were discovered at lunchtime drumming away in the playground!
Some parents were a little tentative as the entered the gates and discovered a few changes to our students. They arrived for our Halloween Dressup Day held by the Junior School Council to raise money towards research into the Immune Deficiency Foundation at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. Students enjoyed the dressing up and also the chance to fund raise for such an important cause.
Clean Up on Fri 28th Nov
We need your help to clean up around the school. Young and old can lend a hand to clear out the old building, shift some equipment between buildings and generally keep our school safe and tidy. We are hoping for news that our old building will finally be removed. We want to be ready so here is an opportunity to do a spring clean! Please leave your name and number at the front office if you can help out.
