This week was a week for moving and shaking.
Tuesday our students participated in their first transition session. The undercover area was an excited place as kinder kids waited, preps ran, grade ones jumped, grade twos sprinted, grade threes skipped, grade fours did circles and the grade fives swaggered to their next year class.
I was fortunate enough to be with my class- aka the best in the school!
This session was magical for all! Students begun making the most important thing- relationships amongst their new grade and with their ‘new’ teacher (even if it is one they know very well).
Next Tuesday will be our last transition session and I look forward to hearing all of the excited stories from the teachers during recess.
Wednesday saw our whole school share in, possibly the biggest event on our yearly calendar- The Christmas Carols Concert. This year we had cowboys and cowgirls busting moves until well passed my bedtime.
One number, at our Carols and at the Cockatoo Community Market that was a HIT was our 2019 School Choir!
This group has been practicing ALL YEAR and now had four incredible performances.
Bring on 2020!
Wednesday night, after the carols I was able to deliver the final school council report at our last meeting for the year. This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know other parents, share in the success of our school and, continue to build a dynamic school.
I would like to personally take this time to thank all of our school councillors. You are all amazing and not afraid to make the ‘hard call’. We are tremendously lucky you always ‘have our back’ and it shows very meeting in your attitude and feedback.
If you are reading this and thinking ‘I’d love to be involved in that’ look out early 2020 for nominations.
Today, at 12:30 the yard was filled with electric squeals and massive grins as our Grade Six and Foundation students celebrated a year of love, fun and action with their annual buddy party.
Thank you to all of the parent helpers and especially Karen who, every year, for many years has prepared and cooked the celebratory meal. We couldn’t do this without you! Nor would we want to!
