Over 9 months in the making, St Peters Street now has a path joining the pedestrian gate to the path from the car park into the school. This was constructed over the holiday period and now means that students and families will be able to enter from St Peters Street without having to enter through the car park gate. At a time when Church Street is currently closed, this offers a new safer route into the school. The gate will be open between 8am and 4pm. The path has been paid for by the consortium building the New M5 after the school raised concerns about the limitations that closing Church Street presented to families entering the school.
As indicated last term, the school has now sought the services of a new teacher to fill the Learning and Support and Dingoes Classroom Teacher role vacated by Ms Cho. Dr Natalie Cooper who wishes to be called Ms Cooper by students and community has now started (pictured with Ms Garner to the left). Ms Cooper has many years of experience of teaching as well as many years researching multi-modal texts. We look forward to benefiting from her expertise as an educator.
ANZAC Day Service
Our ANZAC Day service is scheduled for this Wednesday 2 May at 2pm in the main playground. As part of the ceremony we will be asking students to put flowers at the base of the flagpole as a sign of respect. Please have your children bring in flowers for this purpose. ANZAC Day is celebrated as a day of remembrance and teaches us the importance of peace, respect in honour of the servicemen and servicewomen who gave their lives in the pursuit of this. Please attend should you wish.
Chess club will continue this term for all year 1 to 6 students who wish to continue. Enrolments are still open via the enrolment form which should be made directly with Sydney Academy of Chess.
