Newsletter Week 8 Term 4
Meeanee School 6th December, 2022
MESSAGE FROM THE SWIVELLY CHAIR
Plenty of people ask us, "You must be winding down towards the end of the year". Ummm, actually for us as a staff it is the complete opposite. Teachers have been completing reports, sorting out the Christmas Concert, entering data, sorting our prizegiving, year 8 leavers dinner ....
So if we are looking a little frazzled a smile always goes a long way!
I am in the middle of reading final reports and making comments. This has given me great joy reading about the progress of so many of our students. Maybe more pleasing for me though is reading about the effort that students are putting in.
I wish to thank everyone in advance for a great year. Sure we have had our trials at the beginning of the year with illness (including COVID-19) but as a whole we have showed perseverance. Have a great Christmas break and enjoy the time with your children. The best thing you can do is to continue to read to and with them.
Be Kind, Stay Safe,
PB4L Weekly Goal
Our School Values are very important to us here at Meeanee School. We believe in showing Respect, Excellence, Empathy, and Perseverance. While our students are in school or sports uniform we encourage the display of these values.
For the next two weeks we are focusing in on Excellence.
Stars of the Week
School Concert Evening 2022
For a first time we were really happy and picked up some tips for next time. We looked forward to the next community occasion.
The Meeanee Way - shared by a parent of the school
I took them to watch Riley play netball and little did we know that the court next to us, didn’t have a team to play against (no shows). The girls got asked if they could put a Meeanee reserve team together so the other team could play a game.
The Meeanee reserves of course agreed and played (with Taylah and Eva making up the rest of team). They had a blast and Paige even scored a goal for the other team.
Just so proud of their attitude and willingness to try."
