Students and teachers are starting to prepare for the 2017 academic Year. Paths are being blown, lawns mowed, classes are being set up as we prepare for new learning adventures.
Monday 30 and Tuesday 31 January are planned as Curriculum Days. Students are not to attend these days but staff will gather for professional development and planning. All school students (except for our new preps) will begin on Wednesday 1 February. Prep students will celebrate their first day of school on Thursday 2 February. Preps will not be attending on Wednesdays for the first six weeks.
We hope families are enjoying these last precious holidays and we look forward to seeing everyone with lots of stories to tell.
One of the delights for our community at this time of year is our nesting Tawny Frogmouths. In the large tree, outside the canteen, a pair of frogmouths have been sitting on their nest for the past few weeks. This week they surprised everyone when the juvenile took up residence in a bush at eye level!! Still in its soft down, it has slowly been developing its fully formed feathers, accompanied by a parent watching on. During lunch and recess breaks, students grouped in wonder as they studied these beautiful native birds.
We can't help but be reminded of how lucky we are to be surrounded by such beauty.
Here is your chance to shop at the most local and fresh shop in Rosanna. Our beans have been harvested and are on sale for just $2.00 from the front office.Any money raised will go back into our sustainability budget. Fresh out of the school garden these delicious beans will be a healthy addition for dinner tonight.
Our Orientation of 2017 prep students continues this Thursday at 9:15am. While our new preps are welcomed in some fun activities, parents will meet for further discussions and presentations that support their transition into the school. We are looking forward to the days ahead and getting to know a little more of our new Rosanna Primary students.
What a wow of a concert thrilled all those who were present on 20 October! Below are the range of responses received through Tiqbiz from parents who shared in the night. It is a tribute to all who shared in the realisation of the concert.
Videos of this night can be ordered through the office this week only for a cost of $25.00.
The bell rang and freezing conditions and rain caused the cancellation of the Working Bee planned last Friday. Nevertheless a number of intrepid parents braved the conditions and continued into the evening to regenerate and plant over 100 native grasses and bushes outside Chandler Hall. this monumental effort was followed up with even more digging the day after. Have a look at the area, it is fantastic.
A special thanks for the donation of other natives that are now populating the 3/4 and 5/6 amphitheatre area. These supportive actions have helped Ensure our grounds are kept neat and tidy.
Students stood up and were heard at a recent Student Representative Council (SRCVic) awards presentation evening. On Tuesday 18 October, members of the Junior School Council, Rosanna Primary Staff as well as parents of our JSC Reps, gathered in Melbourne with students from across the state. Students were thrilled and parents proud when the Minister for Education presented our JSC representatives with a runner up award. We were all privileged to have achieved so much and be recognised for our strong student voice here at Rosanna Primary.
