Dear Parents,

Very busy here at school recently with teachers finalising grades and reports over the past few weeks. Our teachers have been busy moderating Brightpath Writing Assessments, working together to grade samples and ensure consistency between classes and grades. These assessments also support teachers in what to teach next in class, in order to improve their students writing. A reminder to make sure your SEQTA logins are up to date so that you can access the reports next week.

Our Year 5 and 6 students braved the weather on Thursday and competed in the Interschool Lightning Carnival at different venues across the southern suburbs. Yet again, our students had a great time and represented the school excellently. A massive thanks to the parents who helped out with coaching, giving up their time all term to support our students. I know the students got a lot out of it too!

One last week to go with lots going on. On Saturday night we have our end of term Community Mass and I hope to see everyone there. Thanks to P&F for providing the sausages! We also have Science Week Activities, Book Week Dress Up, Pyjama Day and our first Runners Club Training for Yr 3-6 students will be held on Wednesday.

Enjoy the weekend and I look forward to seeing you all for Week 10!


Please share far and wide!
