Principal's Report

Dear families,


Week three, and the students have settled comfortably back into the school routines. On Wednesday Mrs Kimmorley and Mrs Watt attended a professional learning session with a focus on assessment. On Wednesday afternoon all staff attended a professional learning session related to data analysis. The session was designed to build our capabilities in using data to inform practice.

JSC are holding a Jeans for Genes Day on Friday 4th August. For a gold coin donation students will be able to come out of uniform preferably wearing their jeans.  Jeans for Genes Day is a fundraising initiative held in Australia each year. The aim of Jeans for Genes Day is to increase awareness of genetic diseases and to raise money for more research for cures and medicinal support.



Next week we will be introducing URSTRONG a whole-school friendship strategy that has improved the social climate in schools around the world, connecting over a million kids, parents, and teachers with a common language of friendship. We are proud to be a URSTRONG School and are committed to empowering your children with friendship skills.

You are invited to take advantage of a FREE Parent Membership to access hundreds of resources – including an 8 session video series. This will allow you to learn the same language & strategies being taught in the classroom through the Friendology 101 curriculum. We hope that, as a URSTRONG Family, you will reinforce the important messages of empowerment, self-compassion, & kindness at home.



Our next School Council meeting will be on Monday 7th August commencing at 6.30pm. Finance will be held at 6pm.


Have a lovely weekend,

Regards Heather
