Congratulations to our children in Year 3 and 5 who this week are sitting NAPLAN. It has been a joy to witness the poise, commitment and focus of our children during this week of assessment.
Mother’s Day stall
Thank you to our P & C for your stellar organisation of our Mother’s Day Stall last week. I hope that all of our mums and carers enjoyed a fabulous Mother’s Day filled with love, laughter and happiness.
Over the past fortnight, our teachers have participated in many wonderful professional learning opportunities.
I had the honour of attending a forum where the Secretary of the Department of Education, Mr Mark Scott and the Deputy Secretary, Mr Murat Dizdar spoke about future directions for public education in NSW. Some members of our executive team attended a conference to hear educator, Mr James Nottingham talk about the power of providing children with effective feedback about their learning. Miss Hopper attended an Austswim course. Staff also met in stage teams to develop Assessment and Data Plans for Term 2 and to share strategies for implementing formative assessment practices in classrooms.
