It was great to see our students well rested and ready to learn.
Term 3 will prove to be another busy time as we prepare for the school house athletics, year 3 camp, lots of excursions, in school visits and the year 5 and 6 film night.
Last term Ormond Primary completed its journey to becoming an eSmart accredited school in line with the Government’s “Stamp Out Bullying” plan.
An eSmart school is a school where the smart, safe and responsible use of information and communications technology is a cultural norm. Our students, teachers and the wider school community have been equipped to embrace the best these technologies have to offer, whilst being savvy about the pitfalls.
I would especially like to thank the eSmart professional learning team led by Kim Stewart, Jade Lipson, Stephanie Halliday, Paul Bratt, Chris Cheverton and Josh Kameon along with the Education Subcommittee who assisted me with working through the accreditation process.
I would like to remind families with children who will be commencing school in 2018 that we are taking enrolments now. Could all current parents who have not as yet completed and lodged enrolment forms for 2018 Prep students please do ASAP. If you are aware that your child/children will not be attending OPS in 2018 could you please inform the Office in writing.
Global Citizen Awards
Students nominated for Global Citizen Awards at the end of last term and reproduced in this week’s newsletter will be presented at assembly on Monday.
National Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability
Ormond will once again be participating in the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on Students with Disability. This data collection is taking place in all Government, Catholic and Independent schools across Australia, and will provide valuable information about supports required for a broad group of students. This will enable Australian and State Governments to better target and support resources in schools.
