What a fortnight at the Springs and around the world! It has been an opportunity to quickly put into practice the strategies gained in our Resilience Project sessions. Showing gratitude and empathy and being mindful has certainly helped me in these unsettled times.
It has been a pleasure to have our students and their smiling faces each day. Although there is a lot of hand washing and some postponed events, we are keeping as much normality as possible and teachers are running their normal classroom programs.
Our breakfast club is going strong with an average of approximately 60 students receiving breakfast daily. Breakfast club is open every Monday to Thursday from 8:30-8.45am. Parents and siblings are welcome to call in and have some breakfast too. Students are welcome every day or on random occasions. Foodbank provides the majority of the food however we would be grateful for any donations of bread, jams and butter. This can be donated through the office if you can spare any at this difficult time.
On Thursday I had the opportunity to visit some of our fabulous electives offered to our senior students. It was so lovely to see students trying new activities and showing abilities outside their everyday lessons.
Please note the Canteen will be 'closed' for the final week of term.
End of Term
As we head into the final week of term I'd like to remind you of our Easter raffle which will be drawn on Wednesday. Please also remember our early dismissal of 2:30pm on the last day.
I wish you a safe holiday and a wonderful Easter. Please take extra care of yourselves and your loved ones at this uncertain time. If you haven't had a chance to watch the broadcast of the Resilience Project, I encourage you to do so as we all work together to support the Springs' students.
See you on our first day of Term 2, scheduled for Wednesday 15th April.
