Welcome Back to Term 3
Welcome back to another busy and exciting term! The week has begun relatively smoothly and it has been great to see the students and teachers settle back into routines so quickly. I have enjoyed my time today visiting and catching up with students’ holiday news with stories of movies, play dates, play centres and for some very fortunate families - time away to warmer places. We also welcomed back to our community Mr Stefan Beal in 3/4B as he establishes routines and expectations with the students and reconnects with families. For the first four weeks of the term Mr Beal will be working Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Mrs Schmauder will be covering 3/4B on Monday and Friday. This is a work schedule that has been negotiated for a smooth transition for Mr Beal with minimal disruption to all our other programs at MPS. If you have any queries about this arrangement please come and have a chat with me.
There was a wonderful “buzz” in 1/2B as Mrs Ashlea Alderson returned back to MPS after her maternity leave. She felt so grateful to have had such a warm welcome from the students and families.
Over the holiday period we had a number of children and their families tend to the chickens and our gardens. We are so appreciative of all the effort and time that was provided to make sure all the chickens were well fed and watered. We thank you so very much!
