Our school has enjoyed a wonderful start to Term 3.
Mrs Rebecca McCabe has been employed at Wollongong West Public School in a temporary capacity in 2019. She has recently acquired a permanent teaching position at Unanderra Public School. I warmly congratulate Mrs McCabe on her permanency and wish her much success as she embarks on this new stage in her career. Mrs McCabe will be taking up her new teaching position on Monday 5 August 2019. Our school will greatly miss the passion, dedication and care Mrs McCabe displays every day towards the children in 3/4M.
Mrs Natasha Kandilas Feld will now be the class teacher for 3/4M. 3/4M will now be known as 3/4K. Mrs Kandilas Feld is an experienced Stage 2 teacher. She is an excellent teacher of literacy and numeracy and brings expertise in utilising information technologies and supporting creativity, critical thinking and collaborative learning.
We also warmly welcome Ms Martina Davies to our school in the role of support teacher for Stage 2.
This semester, our classes will be learning creative arts with Mrs Jo Morrissey and Physical Education (sport) with Mr Ben Taylor.
School development day
At our recent school development day, staff completed mandatory training in performing CPR and managing an anaphylaxis emergency. All teachers also learnt about the importance of using visuals to support student learning and these will be used extensively in classrooms from now. Time was also spent in stage teams planning for the term ahead.
Rewarding student achievement
Each Monday morning at our assembly, children will be receiving awards for academic and social growth and achievement. Our first recipients received their awards this past Monday. Our office “star of the week” will continue to be acknowledged.
Education Week and Book Week celebrations
This year our school will be acknowledging both Book Week and Education Week on Thursday 29 August. Families are invited to join us from 9-11am for some fun in-class activities, followed by a book character parade in our hall. Children are invited to come to school dressed as their favourite book character.
