Dear Parents, Carers and Students of MPWPS
I would like to start this newsletter with acknowledging the students of Moonee Ponds West PS who yesterday during the annual Show Day event demonstrated the qualities of self-motivation, direction and creativity. It was such fun and a joy for me as the school leader to see these qualities in action. Not only did they demonstrate the qualities mentioned, they delivered these with care for others, happiness, consideration and a sense of pride and achievement. Fun and academic success are real partners and we should always have this front of mind. Across educational sectors educators know that when children want to attend school the general outcome is success particularly as teachers better understand the next points of learning and address individual needs.
The feeling ‘at the show’ was exciting. The show stalls were educational with writing, counting and problem solving at the heart. I am still amazed at the set up and working of the ‘Dunk the Teddy’ stall! I believe the Teddy survived and is back on duty in Room 8 today. Organisationally, the set up was quick and the cleanup amazing!
My thanks to the students, staff and parents for a wonderful SHOW DAY!
