Students who are absent on these days will have an opportunity to complete a make-up test on Thurs or Fri.

UWS Reading Ambassador Program, TAFE Work experience, and School Chaplaincy Program

* The WSU Reading Ambassadors will begin Thursday afternoon with targeted students from Years 4 and 5.
* Two students from TAFE will also be starting with us this week. Ceejay and Tanya are training in Youth Work and are very excited to be working with us. They will most likely be working in Years 3-6. The Learning and Support Team will be meeting with them on Thursday morning to discuss their timetable and possible programs of support.
* Ryan, our School Chaplain met with me this week to discuss some new ideas about his role. Ryan will also meet with the Learning and Support Team on Thursday and we hope to develop a more flexible program for him to implement with our students.

TPL Tuesday...

TPL on Tuesday will focus on a continuation with what we started with Chris on staff development day. a representative from Smart Salary will also present for the first 10 minutes to provide staff with an update to changes that have been made to the Smart Salary packaging program.

Team B meetings

We will go ahead with Team B meetings on Weds morning as per the calendar. Team B's will need to have their plans developed as soon as possible and presented to staff so we best get on to it!

Secondary Employment (e.g. Teachers Pay Teachers) and Code of Conduct

Have been poking around my social media sites this weekend and found an interesting discussion about teachers making extra money on sites such as Teachers Pay Teachers (see PDF attached at link below.) Thought I should share the discussion with you in light of DoE Code of Conduct. Much food for thought and perhaps you might like to share this discussion amongst your own teaching circles...

Australian Council of Educational Leadership conference...

I am very excited to be presenting at the ACEL Personalised Learning Conference on the 16th and 17th May. Putting Willmot PS on the map again for all of the right reasons!

The Learning and Support Team (Carley, Chris and Danielle) will be also attending the conference. Phil has agreed to play boss for these two days. Thanks Phil!!

People Matter Survey

This reminder will keep popping up in your portal. I am really encouraging everyone to take some time and to complete this survey. I did and found it was a very good opportunity to let the organisation know what it is doing well and what it can improve on. Give it a go...
