Welcome back to Term 2, which will be an eventful term and time to pick up the threads of last term’s excellent start, after what will have been, we hope, a refreshing break. It is also the beginning g of a new era following Mr. Mane’s retirement. We trust the change-over will be seamless!
This term sees the Infants gearing up for their Shakespeare Festival under the creative eyes of Zoe Emanuel our Drama Teacher, and their class teachers; some of the Primary classes will be moving forward to Naplan, other classes to internal testing. The big event is of course the Fair and Open Day, which will be a little simpler this year with the emphasis on showcasing the children and their work, giving the parents more opportunity to visit the classrooms.
This term we will focus on truthfulness, which is the second of our values. The questions to be asked about an action are:
∑ Is it true?
∑ Is it kind, pleasant and beneficial?
∑ Is it uplifting?
∑ What would a wise person say or do?
These are the questions we will bring to the notice of the children, and apply in different ways during the term.
UNIFORM: Summer or winter uniform it is optional to wear either for the first two weeks of this term.
