BAPS Sunday Focus Term 4 Week 11


Dear BAPS,

The last week is upon us.

This week we get to celebrate with our students and recognise excellence at our last assembly. Thanks to Kelly, Jamie, Jess and others for the organisation. Lets enjoy the celebration with our students and community.

Wow!.... how quickly things change. I mentioned at the release of our 2016 staffing roster that changes always seem to occur just afterwards. Congratulations to Ellyse securing permanent employment at Narara PS for 2016. Lisa McBride will commence training for Reading Recovery.

Lauren Stevenson will be joining our team in Stage 1. She will be attending our Staff Development Day. I know you will all join with me in welcoming her to BAPS.

Our 2016 Librarian

All responses from staffing take a little while at the end of the year and this year has been no different. I can now let everyone know that our new permanent Librarian is Rebecca Nesbitt. I know she is excited to be joining us and will visit on Tuesday. She will also be joining us on our Staff Development Day.

Tumbi Umbi Campus Graduation

I attended the Year 10 graduation at TUC and it was outstanding to watch how many of our students have become wonderfully productive citizens. Many parents spent time with me after discussing how the teachers at BAPS made a difference in their lives.

Moving Day

Our moving day is on Tuesday. Mandy is preparing the map and organisation. Please do not move until you are asked to and be very careful having students moving items. Staff injury rates are at their worst during this time. If you cannot move an item with your foot you should not me lifting it.

Staff Christmas Party

I hope everyone enjoyed the end of the year celebration. Thank you to our social club for the organisation. I didn't know we had a Shazza on staff but look forward to working with her in 2016!

Have a great week.

Can we all make sure we remind our students how they are all successful and have achieved in many different ways even if they don't received a certificate on assembly.
