FROM THE ASSISTANT PRINCIPALS

Connect Group Success

It was fantastic to see such enthusiastic participation and engagement with our second Connect Group on Wednesday. I loved seeing photographs from different groups, and hearing from students about the things they have been talking about, and the new connections they have made. It's fantastic that we have had such positive feedback from the parents and grandparents who have attended, and we hope that the number of people who are able to come along continues to increase. Next term, Connect groups will happen every 3rd  Friday afternoon, in place of assembly. We would love to see all those people who usually come to assembly taking part in a group, and building those all important connections! 

 

Positive Education Parent & Community Workshop

Last term we held a successful community launch of Positive Education with our parent community where we outlined some of the principles of Positive Education, and some of the things we were doing here at RNPS. I am thrilled to announce that we are able to offer some follow up workshops to parents, with our first one on Friday 14th of June at 9:15am. This session will be run by Edwina Ricci, Mel Jeffrey and myself and will be focusing on building positive relationships, and the role of gratitude. These sessions are practical, and aim to build skills and knowledge for parents, and will help to support the work we do at school. We would love to see as many of you as possible to this as it promises to be a fantastic session. Please email me at mann.jessica.l@edumail.vic.gov.au , or pop in to see me to register your interest. 

 

Booster Seats

A few parents have spoken to me about the rules and regulations around booster seats in cars. This topic gathered some attention over the last few weeks, and has been heavily featured in various social media platforms. It is worth reading up on the recommendations if you're not clear on them.

NAPLAN

Congratulations to our Year 3 and 5 students who have finally completed this years NAPLAN assessments. They all coped spectacularly with the challenge, showed persistence and used positive growth-mindsets to undertake these assessments. Well done to everyone involved!
