Welcome back to an exciting Term 2. I hope that your holiday break was a restful and rewarding one for your families. It is also a great feeling greeting students as they return from holiday, so excited to be back at school, and walking around the classrooms so keen to get straight back into their learning.
Welcome to the families who visited our school and enrolled over the holidays. A reminder that our Term 2 Open Days begin next week, so please share the dates and times with your friends and families members who are considering our school for next year.
If your child is to begin prep in 2020 please complete an enrolment form and return it to Julie asap.
Over the holidays the upgrades were completed to our Adventure Playground, with our Pyramid Rope climbing structure installed, the Slide Cubby moved and seating installed around the perimeter of the playground to allow families and students shaded seating while enjoying the space. Thanks again to the Parents and Friends, and all our families, who raised money to support these upgrades.
Refurbishments for the upstairs area were completed with carpeting of the shared spaces and classrooms. Thanks to the Parish for their support in helping us to complete these upgrades.
On May 18th our Federal Election is happening and once again Trinity will be hosting the Federal Election. Volunteers are needed on the day to support the event, with a sausage sizzle and (possible) bake stall a part of the planning. Please put this date in your diaries.
We have a playgroup starting on Wednesdays led by our Prep teacher Anna Plackett. It is open to all families(including ones that don't attend this school). We are committed to build a positive transition for children to help get them ready for school, and also build a positive social network for families to support them through this critical time of transition.
The playgroup will form an important part of our Junior Transition programme. There is no cost to attend. See the above flyer for details.
Families are welcome to attend our school ANZAC Day service on Friday at 11.35am in the church.
Just a reminder that applications for enrolment for most Catholic Secondary Schools are now required when your child is in Year 5. If you are a parent of a Year 4 or 5 student, now is the time of year to begin visiting the schools you are interested in. Most of these schools have Open Days and evenings, and some may organise tours at other times. Please contact the schools directly.
I have contacted DEET and they have said that the forms for enrolling your child into Year 7 in a government school in 2020 have been delayed. DEET have told me they will inform me when the forms are uploaded, but I encourage to check the link that they sent me on their Year 6-7 transition website. As mentioned previously, if you are applying for a school that has special entry requirements, please contact them directly to confirm that there are no additional forms to fill in.
Please enjoy your public holiday tomorrow (but try to remember to come to back to school Friday!)
In groups of 3 students create a t-shirt template.
They chose at least four ‘Thinking Hats’ to share information with each other about what they learned in our ‘Ethics and Emotions’ Inquiry Unit.
Students brainstormed as a group, the information they could use for each of the thinking hats.
An example was when the class said "Put your White Hat on and write facts about ethics or emotions.
Groups then created a circuit using the knowledge of ‘Makey-Makey’ and wrote a program code using ‘SCRATCH’ to make their t-shirt come alive as well communicate their learning and understanding of ‘Ethics and Emotions.’
Photos have been sent (3 Justin, Yen and Mary)
The garden survived! Thanks to regular visits from Lorraine and her daughter Julia over the holidays. After receiving grants for Water Tanks (thanks to Lorraine and Frank for their hard work in writing the applications) we have engaged contractors to prepare the site for the water tank and pump, which will water our ever-expanding Gardening Club's herb and vegetable garden. We look forward to watching the work progress over the next few weeks.
These awards are awarded when students have demonstrated great social-emotional learning, a highly valued part of our school learning community.
