Principal's Report 

Week 3...

Curriculum Day - Staff Learning

Yesterday, staff undertook their own learning!  Thanks to families for supporting these precious opportunities for staff to access collaboration and expertise, to further strengthen their capacity and knowledges in delivering learning to our students.

Our focus for the day was around key literacy elements of teaching & learning, particularly relating to reading and writing, which go hand in hand.

I'm certain students will benefit from the growing staff obtained in our day-long session.

Radio Promotion

You may be hearing on the Power FM radio airwaves, some school captains, promoting our school!?

Our captains, Chloe & Archie, last week accompanied me to the radio station to record two advertisements for our learning hub.

Archie's focus was on the school expansion and its offerings, whilst Chloe was focused on the entire learning opportunities we offer from birth to adulthood.

They were amazing, and did us proud.  The ad's will be played throughout May.


Community Consultation

Tomorrow morning, I'm hoping to see many, many families take the opportunity to join me in the staffroom to from 9:00am, to learn more about our school expansion and what will be offered.  There will be a share session, including plans and schematic drawings, as well as a Q&A session, to support everyone with this impending to change, to how we do things at MRK-6.

School Council & JSC

Next Monday is our May School Council General Meeting.

It is a meeting with a difference, as it includes our School Captains and JSC joining us to be involved and contribute to a formally run meeting.

Before we get into the serious business of school council however, members and students will be afforded the opportunity to visit the expansion site of the school with a tour and then enjoy a meal together.

It's a great opportunity for all stakeholders to mix and get to know each other further.

Community Support - thank you!

Thank you to a number of families who have made contact with me in the past week, to support some key projects we wish to address in our school.

I am most appreciative of the support, community spirit and volunteers who have made contact.  Without you, our school would not be the same - thank you, again.


I acknowledge the First Peoples of the Wathaurong, who are the traditional custodians of the land and waters on which I work and live, and pay my respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
