Staffing News - Congratulations Mrs Whittaker
Recently, our vacant classroom teacher position was filled through the “Interested Pool” process. I am very pleased to announce that the permanent position has been filled by Mrs Annie Whittaker. I am sure you would agree that Mrs Whittaker has made a significantly positive contribution to our students and the school community over time and we are very pleased to be able to have her as a permanent member of our teaching staff. Mrs Whittaker earned the position with an application that was of the highest standard and on behalf of the Banksmeadow PS community I want to congratulate Mrs Whittaker and thank her for her hard work and dedication. I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank our panel members for their time and professionalism throughout the panel process.
I hope you all have a safe and happy long weekend :)
The Senior dance group will be performing in 2 weeks at the Seymour Centre. All students need to return their information sheets to the school office by the end of the week please. Mrs Bragg will be in touch with parents this week about transport and assistance on the day.
Junior dancers are busily practising for their performance at Showcase @the Juniors next term. We will have some double sessions with this group after the Seymour Centre performance to make up for the lessons this group has skipped in the last couple of weeks.
The Senior Band’s preparation for Bandfest is going very well. They should now be well acquainted with their 3 pieces and be working on details such as the contrast in volume, tempo, accents & other markings.
The Juniors too are progressing very nicely. They should be working on bars 21 to 29 in both Beethovens Ninth & Music Music Music as this is what we will concentrate on in our rehearsals.
I’d like also to remind all students to bring their music and instrument on Tuesdays for Seniors & Wednesdays for both bands.
Keep up the good work everyone!
